"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)

The very reason I started this company was when I found this coat and you can read the full story here.

Influenced by the classic Drover's coat the 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 its "lifestyle" good looks, into thinking this is for light showers only - this long coat is fully waterproof and will look after to you in the biggest storms the UK weather can conjure up. We tested it in storms Ciara and Dennis and it passed with full marks.

The Kensington is perfect for dog walkers. No more messing around with waterproof overtrousers - 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 in the coat it opens at the rear via a series of press studs.

Unlike many of its competitors the Baleno Kensington long coat is tapered for the feminine form. Fabric is soft to the touch and the coat is fully lined and has a moleskin-lined collar.

Outer pockets have press studs to keep contents secure and inside there is a mesh pocket. There is also a zip fastened inside pocket handy for your phone etc.

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


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.


Sizing is "very generous to allow for the optional zip-in fleece" and coats are most likely to be returned as "one size too large" than for any other reason.

If on the cusp, or unsure, or looking for a "slim fit" (light or medium layers underneath) go one size smaller. If buying the zip-in fleece advice is to stick with usual size.

"I am usually size 12 but in a Baleno I am a 10", says Teresa. "but I would likely have to go up one size with a zip-in or chunky fleece".

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

Size 18: 64cm

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

"Love this coat. Perfect for muddy and rainy dog walks! I am 5’6 and comes down to just above my ankles. Great customer service too as I swapped coats twice to get the right size. Def size down - I did and still had room for a thick jumper :)" PP

Zip-in fleece (optional)

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

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.

Waveinn Trustpilot reviews

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!

So far my wife is delighted with the coat and it is everything it said it would be.

Not my style 😕

Quality is good but the A-line styling coupled with snug fit wasn’t right for me

Smart and Stylish

I needed something practical and waterproof to take my grandchildren to the park in all weathers. My friend had one for dog walking and it looked amazing. I ordered the camel one size 8 following advice from my friend to buy a smaller size and there is plenty of room underneath for my Barbour Gilet. I love the length and it’s warmer than I expected. The fact that it’s so stylish and smart is a bonus! It arrived very quickly and I was impressed with the minimal but effective packaging. I think it’s really good value for money. By the way, I’ve read other reviews about the hood being small but it’s adjustable and seems really roomy to me. Can’t find fault with this coat.

Brilliant purchase

I read a review from another purchaser who said she had searched high and low for the perfect longer length waterproof coat for years, having previously spent a lot of money on unsuitable ones.. My immediate thought was “that’s me” . Initially I thought the Kensington was a little expensive until I researched further to find coats of inferior quality at higher prices and still not my desired length. The Kensington is everything I wanted and more. I am 5’5” and am a little long in the tooth. I wanted a coat the correct length to wear with boots ✅ fully waterproof ✅ and of a style bearing no resemblance to an “anorak” ✅. Thank you Baleno I will be spreading the word.

Beautiful Coat

Great coat, lovely cut, quality material, style and fit, perfect for being on the yard or in the saddle, or just walking in the countryside in style!
