Baleno Chelsea Women's mid-length 4-season Raincoat

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

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!

First class service

I saw this coat in my local shop but not my size. Found it online, better selection of colours as well as sizes, excellent delivery during lockdown and the festive season, arrived when expected, will be back for more.

Super coat

Love this raincoat, I am 5’3” and this coat is just the right length for me to wear with boots and the sleeve length is also perfect. The fit is excellent and flattering. I would normally opt for a size 14 in an outdoor coat, but a size 12 is plenty large enough, even when worn with a thickish jumper. Terracotta colour is beautiful & versatile. The only disappointment is the hood, which does not extend far enough forward over forehead to give good protection from rain, an extra little “peak” of fabric, would have made for a 5 star review. An extra secure (zipped) inside pocket would also be useful.

Chelsea Raincoat

Really happy with this coat. It arrived just in time for a walk in the rain and kept me dry and warm. Bought a size bigger than usual so I can wear heavy sweaters or fleeces under it. Good move! Very well made and cleverly designed.

Beautiful coat but exchanging for smaller size

I was very pleased with the quality of the coat but I can't review it's performance just yet as I am exchanging for the next size down. I normally have a 16 in coats to allow for a thick sweater if needed but the 16 came up much too big. I'm hoping a 14 will be perfect
