Bought this coat in the greengage and loved it. Unfortunately after two day on the back seat of the car in summer it faded severly. Customer enquiries were not helpful and said this could happen if it was near a door with glass etc. I think this should be on care label. Unfortunately this issue has got worse over time just by general wear, even though I am careful to put it away in our understairs cupboard.

Design detail

This is a very good quality product in a beautiful colour called "wreckage". However I was disappointed to discover that on arrival it had straight sleeves and not the interesting slightly curved turned back cuff that is shown in the catalogue and online. I particularly liked this feature and returned the item as it was not as it is advertised.

Very creased and not well finished off

I have just received this jacket and am very disappointed as it arrived very creased although the packaging was fine but also the finishing off is not very great . The innner flap where the zip the material is puckered and some of the material does not feel that it will smooth out as there is more of it so if t will not lie flat.
I have several tin cloth coats and have had no problems and I also have the Bowsprit jacket with the pretty flowers on and this does not have a crease InSight AND it has been packed in a suitcase to go away.I also feel that I have lost out of pocket when I return the item as I paid to have it delivered and had been looking forward to wearing it.
I shall be returning the coat and would be grateful if you could give me the full refund as it's not my fault that iam having to send it back.
The coat is a lovely colour and style and is a good fit.

not great

sadly didn't like this jacket - it was a bit neat in size and wouldn't have coped with a heavy sweater underneath. also didn't look nearly as stylish in real life as on the models. obviously though i'm out of step with most other customers who seem delighted with their purchases

Great til it comes to a wash

Love this coat. Really enjoyed wearing it all summer. Sadly got some oil on it so washed it with Tec Wash as sold by seasalt and it's quite faded now - no longer seems as brilliant a rust colour as it used. Still fits well just lost colour despite following instructions, so be careful! Shame for an expensive coat and using dedicated washing liquid bought from the shop.

NOT waterproof!

Love the coat but I have just returned from a short dog walk in the rain and the coat is damp inside on the shoulders. The rain does not bounce off the fabric as described in the product information but has soaked in.
Customer services have said the fabric is faulty but I am not convinced so sadly it will be going back as I bought it for wet weather walks.

Don't buy a Bowsprit jacket at any price!

Having bought a bowsprit jacket last year I felt it was time for a wash as the light blue colour was slightly grubby. Having washed the coat as per the instructions on the label I have to say that it looks like an old rag. The creasing is such that it is unwearable as it looks as if I have slept in it since I bought it. Customer Services were most unhelpful saying 'Tough the coat still functions so get on with it'. I'm surprised that a company like Seasalt should adopt this attitude.
