My first Sea Salt Coat and not my last!

I’m crazy about my Bowspirit jacket and have been living in it during Cyprus’ rainy winter. The reviews mentioned sizing up but as the 14 wasn’t available on the sale, I bought my usual 12 and agree it’s too snug on the bust and armholes to put a jumper underneath. The beautiful Spinnaker coat came on sale and reviews said it was bigger on top, that the design had been changed to allow for a jumper underneath so I decided my 12 would be okay. But alas, still small armholes and bust and not able to change it for size as it’s sold out! I’m going to keep this lovely coat to wear over thin tops and the red color is stunning, but please Sea Salt change your patterns to add larger armholes and more room to the bust area! I’m sure many of your shoppers will agree with this! Thank you for listening.

Super Styling!

Gorgeous jacket, so well styled! I’m giving a 4 Anchors rating because I believe the shoulders are a bit narrow. I ordered my usual 12 and unfortunately in the sale, the 14 was gone. I’m keeping my beautiful jacket but won’t be able to wear a heavy jumper underneath.

I’m afraid this jacket was a poor fit for me. I ordered the size 10 but it was tight across the shoulders, long in the sleeves and rather droopy and drab looking. It was also a thinner cloth than expected. No trouble to return. I rarely need to return your clothes in my local Penzance store.

Love it

I love my new bowsprit jacket. I bought my first one last May, and love it so much, I have just bought another one in a different colour. The reason I need two is that I use one for walking the dog, which tends to get rather muddy and wet. So my new coat I am keeping for ‘best’! Indeed, I am visiting Blenheim Palace this weekend, and it will be my first outing wrapped up in my new Bowsprit. Airy and comfortable. Love it

Now perfect Bowsprit

I bought the original Bowsprit jacket a couple of years ago and I loved it, except the sleeves were a bit short, resulting in soggy sleeve ends of whatever you were wearing underneath and across the shoulders was a bit narrow (I'm 5'7' and an 8) meaning a slightly chunky jumper underneath made the coat feel restrictive.. I gave a detailed review at the time and am delighted that the revised Bowsprit now has foldback sleeves which when unfolded full length keep your hands perfectly dry as well as looking great, and across the shoulders is now a perfect fit and this coupled with the softer Tin Cloth makes it a fabulously comfortable, stylish raincoat.

Perfect autumn jacket

Lovely lightweight jacket, smart enough to wear in the city, but robust enough to protect from the elements.

Love my Bowsprit Jcket

Just love this beautiful jacket, it is true to size fit wise, light weight enough not to be a hassle to carry around, but covers you well when it rains. I feel very dressed up even in the rain! Thank you Sea salt another WINNER!

Versatile coat

I love this coat. Fine for walking the dog but smart enough to wear to go ‘out’ . It’s cut well and my normal clothes size fits perfectly, with or without an extra layer underneath.

Great jacket

Love this jacket, fit is oversized so fits a jumper underneath but also doesn’t look too big without one, lining is comfortable to wear if it’s warm but raining with just a T-shirt, materials are lovely, not the scratchy material usually found in a Mac, nice and long, easy done up, quality poppers and zipper, the hood is very generous so you don’t get soaked even if your hair is up and the colour matches my sea salt wellies! :)
