Baleno Chelsea Women's mid-length 4-Season Waterproof Coat With Hood

Chelsea raincoat

The Baleno Chelsea is a shorter version of the best-selling Kensington long raincoat. Same coat just a little shorter. In an ideal world we would have one of each (Kensington and Chelsea) and we would be very happy if all of our customers agreed with this sentiment.

As with the Kensington, do not get taken in by the Chelsea's chic appearance. Like all Baleno coats the Chelsea is fully waterproof and created from a hard-wearing material.

The Chelsea is tapered for fit. Material is soft to the touch and the coat benefits from full inner-lining and a moleskin-lined collar.

Other features: Under arm eyelets to aid breathability; Internal mesh pocket; Zip fastened inside pocket handy for your phone etc; Adjustable cuffs; Two-way zip with storm cover preventing zip leakage; Vented tail with gusset; Detachable hood.

Baleno Kensington is 120cm from base of collar to hem
Baleno Chelsea is 98cm from base of collar to hem


Sizing is reasonably true on the Chelsea we feel.

Why not grab a tape measure and compare to a coat that fits you well from your wardrobe. With your coat laid flat measure across the front a couple of inches below the armpit to the same place on the other side.

Size 8: 49cm
Size 10: 52cm
Size 12: 55cm
Size 14: 58cm
Size 16: 61cm

We will always swap a coat for a different size. Why not order two coats and return one? We really do not mind.

Other information

Handy tip: I ordered my first Baleno from abroad as it was £20 cheaper. I did not even realise I was buying from abroad and was fooled by a small Union Jack! This turned out not to be such a great idea. The site suggested 7-8 days for delivery and this turned out to be around 20 days. And then i needed to change it for a new size as it came up small for me. So another couple of weeks to get it back and and more to get the next size up. Not only that, I lost more than £20 having to pay cross-border return costs. The whole adventure was around six weeks and was rather stressful.

This is a swift and intense test for presenting as a swift video. I have sprayed Baleno Kensington, Livingstone and Chelsea coats for over 5 minutes with a hose and all have remained dry. Julian Patrick, Longcoats.

Can I wash my coat and will it stay waterproof? The honest answer courtesy of Thomas from Baleno!?

"Yes, if the care instructions are followed. The care label can be found on the left lower inside of the coat. NO fabric softener and NO tumble drying as they can dissolve the taping and dry out the laminations. The lamination will become brittle and porous and will start leaking.

Same story with other taped and laminated coats all over the world.

Best is to brush dirt off rather than washing the coat.

People are much too-clean you know. It’s all in the head.

We never wash our dogs with soap, yet their fur is healthy, shiny and not smelly.

But they love a good brush from time to time".

Well said Thomas!

Really beautifull coat.

Great product for all seasons

Very waterproof

I recently bought a Chelsea Baleno waterproof coat from your website. It’s an absolutely brilliant coat: high quality, lovely cut and very waterproof. What more could one want? Also, it arrived in record time. Thanks very much.

Definitely a 4 season coat

It took me a good few months before buying the brown coat mainly because I have wasted so much money on coats that just didn’t do what I wanted and needed in a walking coat. This one not only looks brilliant it does exactly what they say, it will, keep you warm, dry and cool all at the same. I’m also amazed at how light it is to wear and carry so not cumbersome when your out and about, I also found it to be true to size giving me enough room to wear a fleece or tee shirt under it without feeling bulky therefore I’m very happy with my. purchase....

Smart and practical coat

Very happy with my coat. It's much lighter in weight that I expected but that's a bonus.
