Stylish coat

I haven't actually worn this coat in the rain yet but the fit and look of the coat is lovely. So do hope it is waterproof!

Sizing good, no creases

Got the 14, good fit over jumper. No problems with creases as in other reviews. The green is very greeeeeeen - I like it, but not for the faint hearted. I find the pocket flaps a bit annoying because they tend to crease upwards. Apart from that, lovely!

lovely jacket

I really loved the colour ( green and the style of the jacket) However, it is not a generous sizing so if you like a loose fitting coat I would go for a bigger size. The cut of the jacket is straight up and down, so important to keep this in mnd if you like a fuller fitting coat. i have used it out in the rain and it has been great.

Bowsprit jacket

Lovely product but VERY creased when received , despite hanging for ages, creases did not drop out.
In the rain- some raindrops stayed on top of the fabric & some soaked into the fabric making it look mottled until it dried.
When the hood was wet from the rain & down off my head, the wet fabric wet the back of my hair.
Comfortable to wear, lovely colour.

Lovely organic cotton raincoat

I was looking for a longer Tin Cloth coat, being very happy with my existing Sea Folly (love the fact that it's all cotton and cotton lined) and this is it! Wrecked is a gorgeous colour and I love the Parka style back. This is slightly roomier in the body than the Sea Folly but by contrast, a little bit narrow across the shoulders. Being 5'7', I still find the sleeve length just a fraction too short, on a coat especially I think a longer sleeve is more important, soggy hands are not nice! I went for my usual 8 though and a thin jumper underneath is fine, I did try the 10 which was better on the sleeve length and shoulder width but huge in the body. Overall though, a lovely jacket.

Issues with hood

The Pontoon Harbour is a lovely colour and the stripe gives it that extra lift. However, I am really torn whether or not I will keep this jacket because of the hood. Ultimately I want a waterproof jacket that will keep me dry in the rain. But I fear the hood will leave me with a wet forehead and face. Perhaps I have a larger head than most, but for me this jacket would be perfect if it had a little extra flap of fabric at the peak of the hood to increase the coverage to keep water off the face. I shouldn't have to carry an umbrella as well or keep one hand holding the hood over my head enough. The hood is the only reason I am undecided. Otherwise it is a stylish jacket.

Something wrong with the cuffs

My husband bought this coat for my birthday and initially I was delighted. I first wore it when I took it away for a short break and found the large cuffs a complete nuisance. They keep falling over my hands, don’t stay turned up as they should and generally need constant attention. One needed pressing when it came out of the bag as it was creased completely wrongly.
Apart from this major issue, the raincoat is just as one would expect from SeaSalt but I am at a loss as to how the cuffs can be easily remedied, and I am a tailoress!

Not for long walks in the rain

This is a great coat for light rain. If you plan to walk in moderate rain for more than 20 mins then I would consider buying a different coat. My coat soaked through and it took ages to dry. Very disappointed as this coat was to replace a very good waterproof jacket, I am going to buy the wash recommended to keep it waterproof to see if this helps. Otherwise it will be back to purchasing Helly Hansen jackets.

It would be great if you could put waterproof ratings on the descriptions eg waterproof to <5000mm.
