Centigrade Water Resistant Washable Down & Feather Hooded Coat - 149543
Pointless in rain
The jacket is comfortable to wear. I love the big hood as im a dog walker. However, twice today i was out in the rain and my sweater underneath got so damp i had to change when i got home. The padding gets soaking wet and sinks in to your clothes. Cold dry weather, fine. Other than that, forget it.

Perfect all rounder.
For size comparison I am a size 18 and 5'3" and ordered this coat in size XL to allow for bulky jumpers etc., underneath without making me feel like the Michelin man and it is the perfect size. I have deducted a star as I find the sleeves a bit long and had to get them shortened but also because the hood is SO enormous the only use I can think of for it is if I had planned to rob a bank as it completely obscures most of my face. Thank goodness it is detachable. It will never be used. I love the colour I got which is called purple and is a lovely aubergine shade. This is a jacket to see me through this and many winters to come. Love it but a REAL shame about the hood.

I ordered this in Winter White, size xs. I am the smaller end of size of 12 usually as I have a large bust, but this fits perfectly! The colour is beautiful. I can only describe it as 'pearl'. It's a very pale cream with a sheen. It's slightly too long for me as I am only 5'2" but it's so soft I am able to tuck the hem under when done up - and it still looks amazing! The hood is a bonus and has come in handy already. It's also nice and warm. I have worn it with just a vest top underneath on these recent cold days and I have been very toasty! The trouble is, it's so comfortable I want to wear it every day, even though it doesn't go with my work wear! I love it, and highly recommend it.
