"I live up in the Pennine Hills and we get a lot of wet weather, I have never had a better waterproof coat. Bought for dog walking in all weathers and for my walk when i wild swim, no mater how much rain has been thrown at me i stay totally dry. Cant recommend enough" H Reid (see reviews)

About the Baleno Kensington

The Kensington never needs reproofing to be waterproof.

"The reason I started this company was when I found this coat". You can read the full story here.

Influenced by the classic Drover's coat, the Baleno Kensington is manufactured from a tough and hard-wearing, breathable fabric making it ideal for those who get stuck in when the weather takes a turn for the worse. Don't be fooled, by the "lifestyle" good looks, this long coat is fully waterproof and will look after you during the biggest storms the UK weather can conjure up. We tested in storms Ciara and Dennis and the Kensington passed with full marks.

The Baleno Kensington is perfect for dog walkers. No more messing around with waterproof over-trousers - just take from the coat stand and go.

Those who love horses also respect this coat for many of the same reasons - they stay dry and they know that the coat is durable enough to cope with a yard environment. Should you wish to ride, the coat it opens at the rear via a series of press studs.

We received several reviews saying that the hood was a bit small. This was fed back to the manufacturer and we are pleased to say the hood has been modified and is now slightly larger. Thank you Baleno for listening.
Stay dry with the Baleno Kensington - "just add boots".

Warmth: The Kensington is light, this ensuring you do not overheat during milder conditions. You will need to layer up for inclement winter mood-swings - or you can purchase an optional sleeved-fleece (Baleno Sarah) or gilet (Baleno Sally). Here at Longcoats, we are pleased when coats remain toward the lighter end of the spectrum: one can get rather warm when walking dogs (one of our favourite activities).

Style: The Kensington is distinctive and stylish yet slightly relaxed at the same time. Whether a winter dog walk or the daily commute the Kensington will have you covered. The coat can be left open at the front or rear for a more relaxed style - or fully closed against the worst of the weather.

Length: Full over the boot.

Hood: Roomy, with drawstring. Detachable via press studs. Adjustable via strap and velcro on top.

Cuffs: Edged with faux-moleskin and adjustable via two press studs.

Fabric: The Kensington is breathable, soft to the touch with a faux moleskin-lined collar. The material can be described as strong cotton canvas that suggests high quality when brushed with the hand. Fabric is a textured Dobby weave in 85% polyester 15% polyamide, with a waterproof PU laminate backing. Fully lined - not quilted or padded.

Seams: Taped

Zips: The Kensington has two zippers - one heavy-duty for zipping the coat closed against the weather (fully protected by a material flap) and the other, smaller secondary zip, for zipping in an optional Baleno fleece. The main zip ends approx. 43cm from the hem.

Pockets: Outer pockets have covering flaps and press studs to keep contents secure and inside the coat there is a separate mesh pocket. There is also a zip fastened inside pocket handy for your phone etc.

Press studs: Strong studs, spaced a close 16cm apart, that continue the length of the coat until about 24cm from the hem.


Fit: We recommend dropping a size (if you are normally a 14 then buy a 12). These coats are VERY generous to cope with the optional zip-in fleece and even dropping a size will usually allow you to layer up underneath.

You might wish to find a coat you already own and check against the following measurements:

Size UK 6 UK 8 UK 10 UK 12 UK 14 UK 16 UK 18

Half Chest (inches)
(2" below the armpits spread coat flat on a table and measure side to side)

Height: We believe the Kensington to be suitable for women 5'0" or taller. If shorter than this we recommend the Baleno Chelsea. The Kensington measures 127cm from the top of the collar to the hem (120cm from base of neck) and the Chelsea 105cm (98cm from base of neck)

I spent 5-years and far too much money trying to find the perfect full-length raincoat. I eventually found perfection with a brand called Baleno. Following my search, I started this website.

I am so confident you will be happy with your Baleno full-length coat I offer a "28-day full refund even if worn guarantee". Julian Patrick, Managing Director.


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.

Zip-in fleece (optional extra purchase)

The Baleno Sarah fleece is an elegant zipped garment made from high quality Sherpa fleece (100% polyester). It has a stylish faux leather trim around the zip and collar and two outer pockets.

It's a perfect fleece to wear on its own but it is primarily designed to be zipped into the Baleno Kensington long raincoat for extra winter-warmth and a truly cosy feel.

The body shape is flattering and slim fitting so that it doesn't add bulk when zipped into your coat.

The high quality fabric is super soft to touch, breathable and anti-pilling.

Machine washable, can be ironed but no tumble dry.

We recommend that you order exactly the same size as your coat. The zips are designed to perfectly match between sizes.

Useful information

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!

Elaine Hassall
Baleno Kensington Women's Long 4-Season Waterproof Coat With Detachable Hood?

I'm 5' 2" and if is a perfect length. I also ordered a size smaller and it is a perfect fit. I am so pleased with it and looking forward to the bad weather. I most certainly would recommend it.

Patricia Allan
Great long coat

I’ve been looking for something like this for some time and it’s perfect. Not had chance to see how it fares in really bad weather yet but I’m confident it won’t let me down.

Coat is very good quality and stylish. Hasn’t rained heavily since I bought it so can’t comment on the waterproof side yet
