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

The Livingstone long coat is based on the classic full-length Drover's coat - updated with the latest comfortable, hard-wearing, breathable, waterproof materials. If you experience British weather and have to go out in it, whether you like it or not, then you need a Livingstone coat. We took the Livingstone coat out in storms Dennis and Ciara and stayed dry from tip to toe.

The Livingstone is the ideal long coat for walking the dog, no faffing around with over-trousers. Spending time around horses? The Livingstone will keep you dry and is hard wearing enough for those yard duties. The coat opens at the rear via a series of press studs for riding should you desire.

The material the Livingstone is made from is soft to the touch. The coat has a moleskin-lined collar and is fully-lined internally.

Once you have owned a long coat you will never look back. You go out in the wind and the rain and you stay dry - that's it.

Warmth: The Livingstone is light and breathable ensuring you do not overheat during mild and wet weather. You will need to layer up for inclement winter mood swings - or you can purchase an optional zip-in sleeved-fleece (Baleno Henry) or gilet (Baleno Harvey). Here at Longcoats, we are pleased when coats remain toward the lighter end of the spectrum: one can get rather warm when walking dogs (our favourite activity).

Style: The Livingstone is distinctive and stylish yet slightly relaxed at the same time. Whether a winter dog walk or the daily commute the Livingstone will have you covered.

Studs and zip: This handsome long coat has strong studs, spaced close at 16cm apart, that continue the length of the coat until about 24cm from the hem (well down the coat and we like that). The zip ends approx. 63cm from the hem. The material can be described as strong cotton canvas that suggests high quality when brushed with the hand.

Sizing: We recommend buying your usual size.

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


1/2 Chest (inches) compare to coat you already own

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

20 21.5 23 24 25 25.5
Waist (inches) 20.5 22 23 24 25 25.5
Sleeve (underarm to cuff-end in inches) 21 21.5 22 22.5 23 23.5
Hips (inches) 22 23 24 25 26 26.5

Height: We believe the Livingstone to be suitable for men 5'7" or taller. If shorter than this we recommend the Jack Murphy Emmet. The Livingstone measures 143cm from the top of the collar to the hem (135cm 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.

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!

Thomas White
Livingstone coat

Bought initially for walking the dog in the Scottish weather
Keeps you lovely and dry
Wet paw marks clean off easily
It is also smart enough to wear to the pub on a wet day
My wife liked it that much she ordered the female version with the fleece to match
