Fully waterproof, windproof and breathable.

Our Janelle Coat is designed to withstand whatever the Cornish weather throws at us, so it will keep you warm and dry whatever the forecast. A clean, contemporary knee-length raincoat that comes in a choice of versatile colours.

The fit is relaxed but feminine, with room for layers underneath and tab adjusters to highlight the waist. The upper part of the coat is lined with cosy tonal fleece, while the lower half is quilted for warmth and ease of movement.

Packed with technical features and made to last, our Janelle Coat has fully taped seams, a two-way zip, poppered cuffs you can roll back and a peaked detachable hood with adjusters to protect your face. We’ve also added reflective strips on the hood and sleeves make you more visible after dark.

To keep your Seasalt RAIN® coat performing at its best, wash with Nikwax Tech Wash® and reproof with Nikwax TX Direct®

Design has changed but not for the better - stupid fluorescent strip!!

I've had a Janelle coat for a couple of years. It's warm and waterproof but a horrible dull purple colour which I hate. So I thought I'd update to a new "dark wreckage" coloured version. It arrived today but alas the design has changed. The cuffs have lost the Velcro strips that keep them warm and watertight. Worse, the hood now has a luminous strip on the back of the head like the flourescent armbands we wore to go to primary school on dark winter mornings. It looks ridiculous on an adult woman. So disappointed. The coat's going back 🙁.

It’s a no from me

I have used this coat for around 2 weeks now. It absolutely does it’s job as far as being waterproof is concerned. It’s long so really does keep you dry. I really wanted this coat to work for me because it looks lovely on but the hood is way too small -doesn’t cover my head (and i’ve a small frame) especially if i wear a low messy bun or a ponytail. The coat is also not warm enough. I appreciate i do feel the cold but we are only just approaching autumn. It’s a no from me unfortunately especially as it was a present. Awkward 😢

Love the coat but extremely disappointed!

I have just received the Janelle coat and I love it - it fits perfectly. However, I was disappointed to find that there is a fault with the reflective strip on the one sleeve. I called customer services to see how I could get a replacement/exchange - to be frank, I was disappointed at their response and inflexibility. The coat is not cheap and with Seasalt's reputation, I would have expected better quality control and better customer service!

Faulty Zip on Pocket.

I bought this Raincoat around thirteen months ago, and enjoyed wearing it this Winter - couldn't do last Winter as I was ill for three months so it didn't get worn then.

Unfortunately, I am now having problems closing the Zip on the Left Hand Pocket which I'm very disappointed with considering the Raincoat has not been worn much.

In fact, the main Zip at the front of the R/Coat is also a problem at times.

I did expect this Raincoat to last for years given it's price, and perceived quality.

Having previously purchased this coat a few years ago, I fancied a change of colour so is my second coat of this style. I was therefore very disappointed when the zip on the pocket recently broke. I have now reverted back to my older coat which is still going strong.

waaayy too long

I really wanted this coat. Saw it online and then went specially to Lewes to buy it, but .... when I tried it on I was so disappointed. Its sooo long especially at the back. The front is just about OK but the rather unnecessary longer back was nearly skimming my ankles. Well I know I'm not tall, 5' 2" but neither am I abnormally short, I know lots of people my height especially older women, I'm 60, not that ancient, It was just too long. So I'm afraid I didnt buy. If only there were shorter lengths in Seasalt. I also have this problem with a lot of the dresses. So disappointing.

Disappointing as not as good quality as previous janelle coat

Unlike previous janelle model,l i found this very disappointing & returned. With this newer style there is more chance of catching zip as less generous margin of material.. More importantly this peaked hood did not cover the front of my head as hood is much shallower than earlier style. Dark wreckage shade in this coat is not same as same shade in the lighter rainwear jackets-it is s lightly greener.

lasted one winter

I bought this coat 3 years ago, the first product I bought from Seasalt - to encourage the "local" economy. It was great the first winter (if a bit thin - needs a couple of layers): rainproof, nice looking, comfortable. Then I washed it (with the product recommended, then “waterproofed”) and it became a dishcloth in the first rain. I repeated the waterproofing treatment (without the washing) a couple of times and it recovered a bit but it can't make it through a serious winter rain. Then the snap fastener on one of the 2 side tabs came out of the coat side (so now both parts hang on the tab). I tried to persuade it back through the small round hole it came out through but it didn’t work. I stitched the tab in place. It is not surprising the snap came out, there is no interfacing or anything else to reinforce the material it is attached to, which is a thin piece of relatively flexible cloth. The second snap fastener on that side also came out a year later. And then the pocket zipper stopped working properly (now it opens behind the zip puller). After the first year the coat has been used very little as I bought another one from zara for half the price. I will probably not buy other products from Seasalt: I find it overpriced for substandard quality and it is not even made "locally".

Janelle 2

I've had a Janelle for years and wanted a replacement. I ordered the same size 10. It was so much bigger, it fitted my son who is about 11 stone. I returned it and ordered a size 8... still too big especially around the arms. The new cuff is not practical for a raincoat -old style much better. Janelle 2 is boxier, much frumpier and nothing like as stylish. The coat is nice and warm and doesn't need massive room for thick, heavy jumpers. Please redesign for next year as I really love the raincoat and my old one needs to be replaced.

Not good if you are 5 foot 1 inch

Loved the dark wreckage colour and fab functionality and couldn’t wait to try it on. Unfortunately as I am not very tall the waist adjustment came over my hips and I looked absolutely awful in it and couldn’t get it off fast enough. They do a petite in some colours which might have been better but didn’t have it in the shop nor do they have it in dark wreckage online so I didn’t try it.
