COATS: In general it is best to brush the dirt off rather than washing. The less that coats are washed the longer they will last. The care label can be found on the garment. NO fabric softener or tumble drying as they can dissolve the taping and dry out the laminations which can lead to leaking.
FLEECES: Follow care instructions on label.
I'm very satisfied with my purchase of this stunning long coat. I've already worn it a few times and I feel perfect in it, protected from all sort of bad weather: vertical rain, horizontal rain, stormy downpours, splashes from puddles, etc. The zipped pockets are very useful as is the internal one, just right for my mobile phone. The straps are an essential addition, which make it perfect. I'll never go back to any of my previous coats!
Just as expected. Stylish practical coat
Although I have only worn my rain coat once it was extremely warm and being breathable it added that extra comfort. Very pleased.
This is a method used to make materials waterproof by putting a waterproof tape or liquid sealant along the seams (usually on the inside so it can't be seen).
Resists water droplets from passing through. Water resistance is measured by the amount of water, in mm, which can be suspended above the fabrics before water passes.
"Windproof" fabric doesn't let the wind come through. It is very useful to keep you warm. Fabrics are made windproof by membrane or by weaving them very tightly.
Allows body heat and perspiration to pass through. Breathability is measured by the rate at which water vapour passes through, in units of grams of water vapour.
We are pretty obsessed with staying dry. As well as using our coats all year round, in all weather conditions, we test them in a variety of ways - including a fairly intense hosepipe test. Even after a full five minutes of hosing the coats remain completely dry inside.
All coats are suitable for general
outdoor activities in the rain.
We strive to hold good stock in all colours and sizes.
Free delivery on all coats and despatched next working day.
