Rugged & reliable!

This is my third Planthunter coat. I love the design, pockets, shape, hood etc. combined with ruggedness of materials - they stand up to a LOT of heavy wear through hours of daily dog-walking in Welsh coastal winter weather! I'm delighted that there is now a size 6 available which is great for petite folks. The Oak colour is lovely, but I think a bit greener in reality than the warmer turmericy-gold in the website images. I had a problem with the zip of my first new Oak coat but the Seasalt customer service team were very helpful and arranged for a full and speedy refund so I could purchase another.

Fabulous coat

Beautiful coat - really well made and finished. Nice to have some colour and pattern too! Just the right warmth for spring/autumn days without the bulk. I ordered this coat because of the longer length as so many rain coats seem to be too short on me! Ordered from New Zealand and delivery was so quick!

Great Coat

I ordered a second coat since I loved the other plant hunter coat. I cycle to work and this coat is fantastic, warm and definitely waterproof. Suitable for on the bike but also for wet weather. Even with very windy days I didn't get cold. Only point to raise is that the zip is tricky to zip up

Plant hunter great colour for practical coat.

I looked around for ages for a good warm, waterproof, longish coat; this is a brilliant coat and almost perfect. Love the 2 way zip, snug hood, length, deep pockets, very waterproof and wind proof but not as warm as I wanted, but fine for normal winter use. I was fine today in stormy winds! I just wear a warm jumper underneath for really cold conditions. I would also have appreciated those ribbed snug cuffs inside the end of the sleeve. However, I'm really chuffed with the green colour and pattern and love wearing it! It's quite roomy which also suits me.

Plant Hunter Coat

I bought this coat for a trip to the Arctic Circle and Greenland which we are doing this summer when it will be a balmy 10C there. I have worn it a couple of times here during recent chilly weather and it is lovely. Light but warm and a very good length. I havent tested the rainproof capabilities yet but it looks and feels as if they will be fine.

I m losing weight following surgery and probably could have gone down from 18 to 16 but I like to be able to layer underneath so hope it will be fine.

Very nice quality.

Perfect Coat

I bought this coat a year ago and everything about it is beyond perfect! I went for the navy colour which is a jeans-greyblue and matches everything. It's the perfect coat for my job as it's casual but smart. It's perfect for long walks with the dog on the beach in both summer and winter because you have room to layer up or just wear a t-shirt underneath and it's totally waterproof!! I've really put it to the test on our wet southwest Irish coast and it's never failed me. It's also draft proof, you can wear it without a scarf and the neck zips up and the toggles close the hood in enough to keep the wind and rain out. This is important for me as I walk fast and tend to be too hot to wear a scarf, but equally don't want an icy blast down my neck if it's cold. I'm pear-shaped with a much larger bottom and rather narrow top so I went for the size 10 which fits perfectly on top and is very flattering, but leaves plenty of room for my lower half. Also I climb in and out of a van frequently so the double zip is a godsend as I would probably end up ripping the coat if I had to try and remember to open it from the top. The sleves come down slightly below the wrist, which is ideal on a windy wet day when you've forgotten your gloves and don't want to put your hands in the pockets. I've had it for over a year now and it's still as perfect as the day I bought it. I recommend it highly!

Love my plant hunter cost but hate the zip

Only 3 stars because if the zip, I may return mine for a refund purely because the zip is so troublesome, I have to attemp the zip several times before I’m successful and have had to give up a couple of times and leave with my coat flapping open! Disappointing! 😥

Dear Dino,
Thanks for your review of the Plant Hunter Coat; sorry to hear you’re finding the 2 way zip troublesome. The thing about 2 way zips, is that they can be a little tricky to do up, however it’s all in the preparation!
With two way zips you need to ensure both of the sliders are right at the base of the zip (they will be on your left hand side as you wear it). They should sit together quite neatly, with no space in between the zip sliders. Ideally, the zip teeth above the sliders need to be as straight as possible (often this is tricky when you are putting on your own coat), but there is a knack, which with practice you will get.
Once you have slid the right side base of the zip tape into both sliders on the left side, and all is in-line, then you should be able to pull the top slider up the zip to fasten the coat. It may be helpful to hold the base of the zip with one hand, so they are stable, whilst you slide the top slider up – sometimes if the bottom slider moves slightly, then the tips are not perfectly married together, and the zip will not close, as the teeth are misaligned. If you then want to open the bottom slider (in order to split the coat at the base of the zip) then do this as a separate operation, after you’ve fastened the top slider.
I hope this help?
Best wishes, Seasalt.

I love this coat, it is warm and practical, except for the zips. I don't understand why there are two or how they work. which is disappointing.

Very good coat

I am already a devoted fan of the Seasalt raincoats - they have been my choice since I first encountered them in 2013. My beloved Janelle coat needed replacement after 3 years of heavy use during sunny, snowy, and of course rainy days over several years. I ordered online as I don't live in UK, and was happy with service and delivery. Compared to Janelle, Plant Hunter has a somewhat softer outside texture, which is nice. I bought one size larger (12) than my Janelle, as I wanted to make sure I could fit a warm jumper underneath on cold days (I live in Scandinavia) without looking like a stuffed turkey. I was a bit concerned since some customers wrote that it was on the larger side, but in my opinion it is true to size and comparable to other Seasalt items. I guess this is also a matter of preference, I am happy that it's a bit roomy and that the sleeves are long enough to cover my wrists while it still looks fairly elegant. The graphite color was even nicer than expected, a kind of dark blueish grey. I'm really happy with the coat, and so far I like it as much as my Janelle. Plant hunter is a good alternative if you think Janelle is too long.

Plant hunter coat

Delivery choices were excellent, was able to have it delivered to my local Intu shopping centre. Really like coat. Was unsure re sizes but it has turned out well. Sleeves are a little long have had to turn them back and I am 5ft 7 inches tall. Well made hood is excellent, not enormous like you find on many coats and the fleece lining is great. My only criticism is the difficulty I have fastening the zip at the bottom, I usually have to try 3 or 4 times to get it to fit in correctly so I can pull the zip up. I have noticed I am not the only person who has mentioned a problem with the zip. All in all a very good coat if a little expensive.

Exactly what I was looking for

I'm 5'5", 130 lbs, with somewhat broader shoulders. I ordered the size 8. While I would have preferred it to be a little larger in the shoulders/arm width, the fit is otherwise perfect. I wore the coat in the rain and wind and it gave me proper protection. I've yet to find a hood that properly shields the hair above my forehead from the rain but the hood is cozy and stays put. As others have mentioned the chin guard could use some material to prevent chafing but it's a small price to pay for a lovely, warm and comfortable lined raincoat.
I live in the US and the shipping of the coat was impressively FAST.

Much More Than Just a Raincoat!

I've been after a proper waterproof longer coat for ages which suits various weathers, especially slightly less freezing but very wet & windy ones. I got the teal coloured one with a pattern & love it - it looks great, feels cosy & it slots perfectly into my wardrobe. Love it.

Great Rain Coat

I ordered the jacket according to the measurements and it fits. It fits well in the shoulders. It is a little baggy every where else. It doesn't look as stylish and fitted as it does on the model. It keeps me warm and dry.

Plant Hunter Coat

I bought this coat today in a seconds outlet in Cornwall with an additional 20% off so the cost was £48 pounds ! The defect is so microscopic that no-one would notice. An incredible bargain. Usually I wear a size 14 and I had tried this at a local store and was swamped. Today to make sure the 12 fitted I tried a thick jumper under . Perfect fit. I find Seasalt coat sizes so variable however. I tried coats from sizes 12 -16 with 14s fitting like 12s etc. I bought the real patterned coat, Haverford it already and is much admired.

Plant hunter coat

Got this coat 4 days after ordering. Very efficient. I was a bit disappointed at first to see no fleece on front of coat only back. Thought it may not be warm enough. Having worn twice I have grown to love it. Colour beautiful..and style very neat. Maybe a bit crackley but maybe because it's new. A good buy. Fit very good too.

Great Coat

I bought this coat thinking it was quite a bit shorter. I have a Janelle coat that I walk the dogs in daily and wanted a shorter version ( I love the Janelle coat). In reality the Plant Hunter coat is VERY similar and only slightly shorter. The zip is tricky to manage and is metal whereas the Janelle coat is plastic and glides more smoothly. I have had a couple of occasions where I have had to step out of the coat and sort out the zip as I could not unfasten it whilst wearing it. I kept the coat as I will use it for non dog walking, however if this was the first coat I purchased would have sent it back -mainly because of the zip issue.
The hood is easy to wear and tighten in windy weather!
Seasalt designers - please think about a jacket in the Janelle style (angled pockets) - just below the hip length would be perfect!

Great coat

Really great coat. It rained the day it arrived & proved the waterproof worked. Very warm and comfy. It is a little bigger than I would normally go for, but I don't mind this because I like to have a jacket or jumper under my coat during winter. The zip can be a little difficult to work, but this doesn't stop me loving the coat. Will be buying all my future coats from here!

Cosy raincoat

I bought this to go to Paris in freezing January and it has been a great success. I have worn it every day since. It is cosy and comfortable, and the oak colour is unusual. It is quite expensive, but good quality and worth investing in for several winters to come.

Warm and Dry

I received this coat as a Christmas present and have worn it on a very cold London break in December and walking home from work in swirling wind and rain. The coat is absolutely wonderful; it is smart enough that it was the only coat l packed to wear for my weekend away and has kept me both warm and dry when it’s bucketing down. The longer length is great and I love the colour (oak).

Great Coat

Love this coat! Treated myself to it at Christmas which I bought in-store with an extremely helpful and friendly member of staff. I purchased the oak colour which I love as its shade seems to change depending what light you are in. Extremely warm and comfortable with a hood that stays put and lovely deep pockets as well as a small, useful, inside one, perfect for a phone or car keys. At times I find the zip a little tricky and on occasion it does open at the bottom when walking but I’m so happy with the overall product it’s not really an issue. I bought a size 12 which is slightly generous but leaves room for layers underneath. Definitely worth the money. Love it.

A practical coat that looks good

This is a great coat. I originally ordered a size 10 as that is my usual size but found that it was just far too big. So after talking to the helpful customer service person, I ordered the 8 and then sent the 10 back. I can fit a big jumper underneath and I have found the coat to be warm enough at zero degrees in sleet and snow. The wind proofing makes a big difference to how warm you feel. If I ever feel the need, I can also fit a lightweight down jacket underneath, although I haven’t needed to yet. Because the coat is lighter weight than other winter coats, if I wear it for commuting I don’t overheat in it on a crowded train. I ordered the oak coloured coat and I have found that the colour changes in different types of light. I would say that it looks greener in artificial light and more yellow in natural light (but not exactly the same as the photo on the website).

Lovely coat. Ordered the oak colour which i was very pleased with although it is a slightly darker shade than the photo online. Have found the zip tricky to fasten but hope it will get easier with practice. I think it will be a really useful coat. Overall I'm really pleased with it and so glad I bought it. Looking forward to wearing it.

Lovely coat

I bought the teal one with a print of blue sprigs a few months ago, and as I have lost weight I'm considering buying it again on a smaller size, because I like it very much. It is perfect on windy and rainy days, and the colour works with my whole wardrobe. It kept me warm and toasty when necessary, but I also enjoy very much wearing it, which is not a small fate for raincoats who are usually so very boring.
As there was some reviews on the oak colour, I went to the store to check it. My computer, because I work in edition, is perfectly calibrated, and it does look like a warm yellow on it, while in real, it isn't yellow, more of a brownish warm dark yellow colour. It's lovely too and unexpected, but nothing like the one online, whatever screen or computer you try. But anyway, if you're looking for a lovely, warm raincoat, look no more. This one will fit the bill.

No regrets

This was a bit of an impulse buy and I am so pleased with this coat. It is lightweight, roomy enough for layers and warm. I’ve used it almost every day since it’s prompt arrival. I have had no problem with the zip, it’s a standard 2 way zip common to lots of outdoor wear, it’s a useful detail, especially for getting into a car. Highly recommended.

Manchester Tested

I love this coat, I had the Janelle a few years ago but as I'm only 5ft.1 it was quite long, although warm and dry. I decided to go for the "mid thigh" knowing it would go below my knees. I live in Manchester and walk everywhere, for work, shopping and the school run. The coat arrived the same day as the Manchester winter rain, so it has been well tested! I like that the fit is generous for extra layers like jumpers or cardigans, this coat is warm and waterproof without being weighty like other expensive walking coats I've bought in the past. Seasalt is definitely my go to for coats.

Lovely Coat

Lovely fit, I went with the size 12 after reading reviews here (would usually go for a 14 to ensure good fit with sweater) and it fits well, would only say its possibly a little long on me, I'm 5' 4" and the back is just under mid calf. I really like the colour (graphite) and it is lovely and warm without feeling bulky. Very happy with my purchase.

Gorgeous coat!

I absolutely adore this coat. The fur inside the top half and around the neck ensures that it's a warm and cosy garment. It fits perfectly. Love the way it hangs down at the back, and love the pattern and colour - and so does everyone else who sees me in it! (I chose the lino berry dark lake colour - weird name but excellent colour and pattern. The pockets are lovely and deep. Can't find a single fault in it.

fabulous, just what i wanted

I have a coat that's waterproof but too short and not warm, and one that's warm and not waterproof. I live in Scotland and the weather requires that I have warm and waterproof, and ideally with a little bit of style. And at last I found it! This coat is toasty warm, has already coped happily with the winter rain and wind on a Scottish beach, and I love the colour and subtle pattern. I'm 5'2" it comes to behind my knees at the back, perfect. the hood doesn't fall down either. And its roomy enough inside to get a decent thickness jumper on too - not that I really need it - fitting fine across an ample bosom and for my arms. I love this coat.

Would recommend

Lovely fit, good length with sleeves plenty long enough. I really like the colour (graphite). Unlike many other raincoats, the hood stays on. Really comfortable, good looking coat, received many good comments. Zip can be fiddly, may be better if it went right down to bottom but not a huge problem.

What is the colour in real?

I was very dissapointed about the colour of Oak coat. I saw it on many computers and mobile phones and it seemed to be yellow but when I got it, it was brown/green. Had to send it back which costs almost 20 pounds :(. Very sad

Dear Marta,
Thanks for your review of the Plant Hunter Coat, sorry the colour wasn’t perfect for you on this occasion, and you were able to take advantage of our no quibble return policy. We do try to ensure that the actual colour is as accurate as the image shown on the website. A number of factors can have an impact on any colour discrepancy, for example; the resolution on your pc, and lighting (studio or external) I will certainly feed your comments back to the relevant team for their attention.
Best wishes, Seasalt

Lovely coat but ....

There is such a lot that I love about this coat. Very lightweight and a great colour and I really like the longer sleeve length. However, this is the second Planthunter coat I’ve had and I don’t think it is as warm and cosy as my previous one. The other problem I have is with the hood. My previous coat had a hood that didn’t blow off in the wind and which kept my face dry in the rain. This hood sits much further back which means the rain falls on my face - not much fun when you wear glasses. I always thought that the Planthunter was the ultimate winter coat but I have to say that I am a bit disappointed with this one.

I love this coat!

I needed a warm and waterproof coat for walking to work and found this in my favourite local shop. It was just what I was looking for. I got it in Oak, size 10. The colour is different, cheerful and interesting and it’s roomy enough for wearing over a jumper.
Some years ago I was after having a Seasalt coat but had to send them back, one by one, as the fit for me was very wrong in each one - too tight in the bottom and too large in the shoulders. This Plant Hunter coat is the perfect fit! Plenty of room around the hips but fitting nicely in the shoulders. At last! The perfect coat! I might need to save up for another one in Graphite.... 😃

Plant Hunter Coat

Really good coat - great fit, very well made, lovely colour.
One issue - I find it really hard to get the zip to work, it usually takes a few attempts (which is a bit frustrating when it's raining and I'm wearing gloves!). I'm assuming that this is because it's a two-way zip, hopefully I will get used to it.

Happy customer

First of all my compliments to Seasalt! I ordered my coat on Tuesday December 18 and by Friday December 21 it arrived on my address in the Netherlands!!!! Thank you very much for this fast delivery!!!

I love the coat! I have worn it when it was rather cold and windy and felt very confortable in it. I have not experienced any cold on my arms (yet). As I have rather wide hips, I was very pleased to find a coat in my parcel that not only fits my hips very well, but at the same time not too roomy on my shoulders. So overall I'm very happy with my coat!! Thank you again!!
Below I'm going to tick the box "true to size", because it fits my body perfectly. Maybe customers with less wide hips than me will find the coat a bit wide in that area.

Not warm enough

I was initially pleased with my purchase and in fact I ended up with the lino berry dark lake version and not the grey. I have had a number of compliments about the style and colour of the parka but having worn it and I am really disappointed as it is nowhere near as warm as I expected it to be. The picture shows a quilted lining on the bottom half and a faux fur lining at the top but the sleeves are only lined with a thin layer of nylon.. What looks like a warm lining is not warm at all and my arms certainly feel the cold. I am puzzled as to why the manufacturer would think that arms do not need warmth. The faux fur and quilting is very thin and at £150 I would expect better!

Really not sure

My husband bought this for me for Christmas after I said I thought it looked nice. Having worn the Janelle coat foe many years I am very disappointed. He got the 20, as that is what I am wearing in the Janelle. This coat completely swamped me. The sleeves were hanging over the ends of my hands!!(I have since noticed that the online model has the sleeves turned back!!!) Changed it for an 18 and I am still not sure. There is no correlation between the 18 and the 20, I feel the 18 is slightly tight. Disappointing as I like the oak colour, but I am going to change it and stick with the Janelle which has been wonderful.

A lovely warm coat and just the right fit. Perfect sizing as it is large enough for winter clothing underneath, but still looks neat. Length is perfect for keeping the cold winds from my legs and the graphite grey goes with just about all other colours. Perfect winter coat.

Amazing coat

I had been told about Seasalt Rain coats being waterproof and decided to give it a try. Although it seemed expensive it is 100% worth it!!! I am normally a 14/16 and the 14 was a great fit. The hood stays up and I’ve stayed dry in horrendous rain storms. I love the colour and it seems to change from a yellow mustard to a green depending on the light. It is also a warm coat and the outside has a wonderful feel. I would certainly recommend and my friend is already off to buy one.

I had this coat shipped to Germany (where few people know the brand SEASALT yet, which I realize from the many positive feedback that I get on my new lovely coat) and I am absoloutely pleased with it: wind- and rainproof as promised, it has kept me nice and warm throughout the autumn- and wintermonths (although, I must say, that one evening on the Christmas market at around 0 or even minus degrees, it seemed to reach its limits) and the best thing is, that it is really light-weighted. I love the extrordinary colour, which, I would say, in reality is a little more greenish than on the pictures on the web page. Since I am not very familiar with British sizes, I can only say, that I normally wear medium or 38 and that size 10 fits me really well.

Planthunter in Krakow, Poland

We purchased this coat for a friend who works in the fashion industry in Krakow and who is a fashion adviser and designer. She selected the coat online but had seen my wife's Janelle coat as an example. She is absolutely delighted with the overall design and class of the coat.

Stylish and functional

Very comfy, stylish and flattering. Sure keep you warm and toasty, though not heavy on your body. Already tried and tested in the midnight church service, in the unheated church gathering. It will get loads of wearing in the years to come.

Lovely warm coat great colour. I'm usually a 14, but size 12 was a better fit this time. The zip takes some getting used to but I know how to do it now. The hood stays up in the wind its not to big. Great coat for dog walking

Really pleased

So pleased with my purchase. I had my eye on it for a while and decided to treat myself. A little indulgent this close to Christmas but I am soooo happy with it. Perfect for dog walking, it really does protect you from the wind as well as rain and I love that it is breathable as I’m going through the menopause!!! Thank you x

Oak Plant Hunter

Very pleased with colour and fit. Normally I wear a 14 but it was too big. Size 12 is fine. I have a problem with the zip which sometimes won't join to zip up or won't separate when I'm undoing it. So I have resorted to just using the poppers when I am in a hurry. The issue is at the base of the zip and I hope this resolves because I like the coat so much.

Plant Hunter Coat

After a trip to a nearby store that sold Seasalt coats, my partner chose the Plant Hunter over her original choice (from the web page for Seasalt) . I ordered it online from Seasalt and it arrived very quickly, in a lovely gift box...worth the extra fiver. I am really looking forward to seeing her in the coat at Christmas.

I already had the sea salt long raincoat. However, I needed something warm and this coat meets that need. The only thing causing me time and trouble is the double zip. It takes time to get it level and if not it won’t budge. Holding it together helps.

Nifty mac

I bought this in Oak, which is a good colour although greener than it appears in the photographs. A very good lightweight mac with a lovely furry lining in the top half, and a furry lined hood that actually fits and doesn't blow off. Much warmer than it looks, and terrific cuffs with poppers, that can be turned back to allow for driving etc for those of us with shorter arms. Only real drawback for me, hence 4 stars not 5 is that it is VERY noisy. !!! Every movement involves a lot of rustling......... And check the actual garment measurements, it comes up very generously sized.

Stylish plant hunter

After much deliberation and the assistance of the very helpful staff in Southwold store I finally settled on the Plant Hunter coat.
I would normally buy size 10 in coats but the size 8 fitted me perfectly.
The website pictures do not do justice to this beautiful coat. As well as being warm and waterproof it is very stylish. I bought the Oak colour and it is sophiscated and clever. It perfectly matches the yellow/green of autumn foliage. Unusual but trendy.
Many thanks to the very helpful customer service team.

Not like previous Plant Hunter Coats!

I have bought Plant Hunter coats over the years because I feel the cold and they have always kept me warm. This year they have changed the fabric which is harder and the lining is less quilted! The previous models were really cosy and I feel really disappointed with this coat. The only thing I really love is the colour. Such a shame as I won’t get much use out of it and won’t be buying another coat. Sorry seasalt not your best! 😢

Dear Busy mum of 4,
Thanks for your review of the Plant Hunter Coat; yes, the outer fabric has changed slightly this season. Sorry it isn’t to your liking. I’ll be happy to feed your comments to our ‘Rain’ development team for their consideration.

Best purchase for the cold season

I absolutely love the jacket. It's very comfortable, size fits perfectly, it feels light, it's warm, and it completely blocks the wind. I haven't tried it yet in pouring rain, but it's been perfect in drizzle and wind. So happy with the purchase I've made. One thing I would mention is that the colour doesn't match exactly the one in the photo. I got the Oak and it's closer to an olive rather than yellowish. Which is still a beautiful colour, just slightly different than the photo.

Best coat ever! Top tip fellow short ladies use the drawstring.

I wrote a review a fews days ago about the coat being a bit long for us short ladies. However today I tried drawing in the drawstring and tying it. It bought the waist in and raised the hem at back. Well that worked wonders, completely transformed the length and how to hangs on me. I now love it even more! Less beached whale and more ready for any weather outdoor warrioress!

Best Buy

When first opened the package I was concerned the lining was thinner than I had anticipated. But on trying on the coat I realised that as it is wind proof the lining is perfectly adequate - even here in Scotland! I have worn it every day since it arrived, during howling winds and horizontal rain and, as today, in freezing icy sunshine and I have not a single nit to pick! The length is perfect, the 2 way zip brilliant and the fit is good. It has been my best buy in years and my doggy is thrilled as she's getting more walks than usual as I'm warm, dry and comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend it.

Best coat ever!

First Seasalt coat after my mum has been a big advocate for them for years. I absolutely love it! the weekend I got it, it chucked it down for 2 days solid, and this kept me toasty warm and dry as a bone! Definitely a game changer for me! Personally I found the fit true to size, as its a bit of a looser style anyway. Gorgeous colour too (I got the grey).

warm and cosy but too long. Iceland weather approved!

As a 5ft 3 lady I took a risk with the Plant Hunter coat. I took it to Iceland this winter and it was very cosy, warm and waterproof. However it is very long and makes me look a bit like a beached grey whale when I have it done up! Beautifully made and should last a long time.

If you want a warm and waterproof coat and you don't mind what you look like if you are short it's a great coat. Maybe one for the tall ladies. A choice of lengths would be great.

Great Investment, Lovely Item.

I came across this item in my search for a waterproof coat that would keep me warm and dry in the winter. Failing to find anything that was fully waterproof and that wasn't a puffer style, I was ready to give up. Then I stumbled across sea salt and rejoiced! Windproof?! Waterproof?! AND a stylish. I love this coat, it keeps me warm, dry and is oh so comfortable. The sizing is a great fit, it's long enough in the arms and the body. Being 5ft10 this is sometime an issue with coats. The quality is incredible and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a new winter coat.

Not the usual seasalt quality

I own quite a few seasalt raincoats and I love all but this one is definitely not one of the best. I might have not been the luckiest one as upon arrival it simply didn't seem new. A few light stains and an odd smell have indicated that maybe it has been a returned item. Due to circumstances, I needed a coat urgently so I couldn't return and replace it. The fleece-lined hood is lovely and very warm but mine is unfortunately shedding, the two-way zip is constantly unzipping from the bottom up which is annoying. Not really feeling it was worth the price, unfortunately.

Much too large

A previous season coat from Seasalt fitted quite well even though I am only 5ft . I have tried 2 styles ( even going down a size from normal for me ) this year but both were much too long both in the arms and body length. I felt swamped. Petite fit would be lovely.

I love my new coat

I haven't bought myself a new coat for a number of years and really wanted this one as it looked multifunctional. Waterproof and light enough for autumn and also, with the addition of a thick jumper and a scarf perfectly able to take on the harshest of winter weather. I think I made the right choice and am looking forward to testing my theories over the winter to come. I'm going up to the north of Scotland for Christmas and the New Year so the coat will get well tested. I love the fit and colour and the double zip is a bonus allowing me to sit down without having to open the coat. The fluffy hood and upper lining have already proved their worth during a particularly bitter cold and wet day recently.

Love this coat! But be warned - the sizing is big!

Totally in love with this coat. It's warm, comfy and the fleece around the torso and hood is so cosy. My only quibble is the size. It's described as being 'relaxed-fitting'. I'm a 14 in most shops but tend to fit a 12 in Seasalt clothes. However, with this coat I ended up having to send the 12 back as it was simply far too big. I re-ordered a 10 and it fits perfectly, even with a decent jumper underneath. So try it on in a shop if you can!

Happy with this coat

This is the most I've ever spent on a coat, but worth it. It looks and feels like quality. The colour is nicer than I imagined. I would have liked to go for a brighter colour, but as I know it will have to last a few years, I went with safe and will brighten up with nice scarves. I am a size 14 on seasalts fairly generous sizing and ordered the 14, which is just right for me. It allows some room for a sweater, without being shapeless. I haven't tested it in really bad conditions yet, but it has been fine in rain showers with no leaking through to the inside of the coat. It feels warm and I am sure that it will see me through winter. Happy with my purchase.

Very comfortable and cosy coat to wear. Good length. I’m 5’ 7” and the coat falls just above my knee. Sleeve are a good length for me and when looking at the size chart I found that a 14 was big enough ( I usually go for a size 16). Since I purchased it in October this is the coat I choose to wear when going out. It keeps me warm and dry and it looks good on too. As soon as my sister and niece saw me in it they couldn’t wait to try it on! Needless to say they each bought one for themselves . What more can I say..... Excellent.

Beautiful but practical

The great thing about this coat is the length, it covers your legs in the rain and cold, it’s not got fur which is a relief when buying a winter coat. The hood fits too, unlike most hoods which are either massive or don’t stay up. I love this coat and have had non stop compliments since buying it! I can dress up when wearing smart boots or dress down with my sneakers.

Not as described!

It was only yesterday that I wore my coat for the first time. Had I realised that the fleece fabric only lined the back top half of the coat, I’d have sent it back. But it was only while wearing it that I discovered that there is no fleece in the top half of the coat front. This makes the coat neither one thing or another. I am so disappointed

Beautiful coat. Struggled to find The right size as I think they come up fairly large. I need a size 22-24 In Next coats but only needed a 20 in this and there’s room for a chunky jumper . I would say there is a lot of difference size 20 to size 22. The staff at LymeRegis have been so so helpful to me. The coat is worth every penny and the lifetime gtd a fantastic plus.

this is by far the most comfy and trendy coat I've bought in a very long time. :-)
It's definitely rainproof, as already tested, and astonishingly light-weight while warm and cosy. And the colour is gorgeous too!
I love the cut with the shorter front that allows easy movement.
The only way this coat could be enhanced would be a bigger inside pocket for a purse etc instead of the small phone pocket - something I miss in most women's coats.

I'm thrilled with this coat - it's a great length (despite my short stature), super cosy and the graphite colour goes with everything. I ordered my usual size and can comfortably layer up.

Plant Hunter coat

I loved the coat but when it arrived I was very disappointed with the colour, I had ordered the oak. It looked lovely on the website but the colour was very dull and dowdy 'in the flesh'. I did try the coat on before sending it back and thought the overall quality was very good. If ever you do it in the colour as it appears on the web site I will order again without hesitation.

Gorgeous but not 'oak' more 'mushy pea'

Fabulous coat, warm, roomy, looks good but the colour was not as it appears on the website. I didn't send it back as the mushy pea colour is quite lovely but it is definitely not the yellowy tone I was expecting. It does rustle a bit but I find that weirdly reassuring - perhaps it reminds me of the rustle of a kagoole circa 1981! Well made, a good investment but you lovely peeps at Seasalt need to do better on showing the true colour of this coat.

good but not as good as previous years?

I bought this in graphite as I love my navy Plant Hunter from a couple of years ago but fancied something grey as well - it's still a good coat and I'm sure I'll get a lot of wear out of it but I feel like the quality has dropped a bit. The "old" coat has lovely yellow piping around the lining and I think the lining on the sleeves is better, plus the new colour seems "flatter" (the navy one has a subtle texture to it). Fit, shape, and waterproof-ness is still excellent.

Lovely. But...

Beautiful coat. I’m a 5’1 size 12 and the 12 is roomy. Knee length at front and below knee at back. Perfect fit for a winter coat. I’m giving it 4/5 because I am disappointed that for £150 they couldn’t give us zipped pockets! Also the internal pocket can only just squeeze in my iphone 8, which is in a case, and the Velcro doesn’t quite fasten over it. I’d love to be able to use the coat pockets instead of a bag, like a man does. Women need more, and more secure, pockets!

nice coat but the noise!

Nice tailored look. I went for an 8 in view of reviewer comments regarding size, i am normally 10. A mistake possibly, the proportions are good, I'm 5'2, but A thick heavy jumper inside would be uncomfortable, and I am tiny on top.. I hate the sound and feel of it though, it feels like I am swaddled in noisy bubble wrap or some kind of crackling plastic material, especially the arms. I would have rejected it if I had tried it on in a shop for that reason. However maybe thats the price that has to be paid for true waterproofness, not tried it in rain yet. Postage prohibitive to return it from Ireland.

Fabulous Coat

Saw a lady in the street in this coat and was so taken that I stopped her and asked where she bought it. I rushed home, got online and ordered one for myself. I have to say, I love, love, love it. I am a size 12-14 and ordered the 14 to make sure I could layer underneath. It is a tiny bit bigger than I had hoped, but it is probably true to size. I think the size 12 would likely have been a more tapered fit, so I guess selecting your size depends on the look you wish to achieve. The arms are the perfect length (so many times have I been disappointed because the arms in garments are too short!). The coat is the perfect length, is beautifully made, and is really warm and cozy. I am a Seasalt convert!

Lion Berry Dark Lake coat

I went to buy the Oak colour but didn't like it so ended up with the patterned Teal. The 12 was a little small so I chose the 14 which is very generous but will be fine with a thicker layer under it. My only gripe is that the coat is described as being made from beautifully soft, cotton - rich fabric, when in fact it is quite hard and stiff and makes a noise when I move.

This is second coat from Seasalt. After purchasing a longer version in black from John Lewis I have decided on a grey version from the website. Colour as described and fit on a bigger side, which doesn't bother me st all. Length is perfect and the addition of draw strings around the waist a great bonus to enhance your curves

On one hand, beautifully made, super warm, fab coat! On the other hand, colour is completely different to photos! I was expecting a mustardy dark yellow coat but instead I opened the parcel and found an olive coloured coat (my toddler called it bogey coloured). I love the quality but am extremely disappointed with the misrepresentation of the colour.

Thanks for your review of the Plant Hunter Coat; sorry the colour wasn’t perfect for you on this occasion. We do try to ensure that the actual colour is as accurate as the image shown on the website. A number of factors can have an impact on any colour discrepancy, for example; the resolution on your pc, and lighting (studio or external) Rest assured, I will certainly feed your comments back to the relevant team for their attention.

Just right

I’ve bought this coat for my elderly mother. I already have it in last years colour. She is very pleased with it. At 90 she needed a lightweight coat that you can fit a layer or two underneath for watching her great grandsons play football. It’s proved its worth this weekend when the weather has turned cold , wet and windy. She especially likes the two tone blue, as she hates wearing “old lady” coats!

mostly ... glorious

I have a Cornish Heath coat in blue, from 2014, (still going strong). I wanted a winter coat in an alternative colour. I imagine that the Oak colour option must have been tricky to photograph ... I saw the previous negative comments, and even so, was still surprised by the ‘greenyness’ when it arrived. However – have got over that! Actually, its a mutable colour .. depending on the light, it shifts subtly from a greeny mustard, through acid lichen green, to browny tones in shade. Its a glorious gift for redheads or blondes.
Surprisingly, its a lighter weight than the Cornish Heath. After pondering, I opted to size up .. even though I’m 5’2”, and it looks kinda .. huge! I live west of the Pennines where its sodden or freezing or both, from December to March. Wearing this coat, I will feel bold and a little smug. I will wear it with browns, greens, orange, purples and cyclamen.
On the down side, I’m not a fan of the fishtail. I guess it must have a practical purpose, (although I haven’t missed it with the Cornish Heath ...). But the back view is not flattering (even on some of your models). I’ve found that unfastening the back poppers helps to ‘balance out’ the back view.

Plant Hunter Raincoat

I chose the Lino Berry Dark Lake colour. Really pleased with the coat, expecting it to be very warm in the coming months. Love the cozy hood and quilted lining. Perfect length, I'm 5'4 and it sits just above knees at the front and just below at the back. Fits true to size. Another lovely buy from Seasalt.

Bigger Size

The colour is lovely, the coat is well made, but when compared to two other Seasalt size 12 coats, it is bigger. So I am returning the coat. As I live in Ireland, this is quite an expense as Seasalt don't partner with Rebound to facilitate returns, so I wont be ordering another one. I will probably wait now until next year.

At Last!

Was pleased to discover SeaSalt carried a plus size range and was not disappointed. Proper Waterproof coats are hard to come by in larger sizes and have been looking for one for ages! Usually having to size up in winter coats (to accommodate a bulky jumper underneath) I was thrilled I could actually order my proper size. Fits perfectly and is so warm. Knowing several people who own Sea Salt Coats, I was assured the price tag would be worth every penny so did not mind spending the extra. Looking forward to winter!

Plant Hunter coat

I’ve never bought anything from Seasalt before; I fact only discovered the brand after approaching a girl wearing this coat in a store in Dublin,Ireland. She gave me the name and I went online. Delighted with the coat.Im 5’8, size10-12, broad shoulders...the 12 is perfect,great length sleeves, and room to wear a fleece under it in winter. For development it would be great to pad it out a bit more with duck down etc to make it warmer for winter, but thrilled with it otherwise! I’ll def be shopping again with you-super quality, great c.service!

Graphite Plant Hunter Coat

Really pleased with my new Seasalt Coat. I am size 10 and 5ft 3ins and it fits lovely with room to add an extra layer if required. I chose the Graphite colour. Pockets are deep with popper to close and inside there is a secret mobile phone size pocket with velcro seal. The hood, which is fleece lined fits perfect. Know colder weather is coming in next week so will be perfect for walking my little Granddaughter around in her pushchair. Very impressed with Vanya and Lucy the staff in the Lytham branch for being so helpful.

Good and dead practical

This was a slight distress purchase as I needed a casual, mid-weight waterproof coat for autumn. As such, I'm really pleased with it and it's never been off with all the recent winds and gales. It suits me and the fit is roomy which suits me - room for layers as it gets colder. The one star lost is just that I think it is a little boring …. It does look like a lot of other coats around. However, my husband assures me that the colour is not the battleship grey that I think of it, but really a rather dashing airforce blue. He is of course right.

Great coat

Bought this coat in the Lytham shop. Staff very helpful and helped me choose. Love the fishtail. Fit is loose to enable you to wear layers underneath. Not sure it will be warm enough for very cold days walking on the beach but is going to get a lot of everyday wear. I would agree with a previous reviewer that it isn’t really an oak colour, it’s a dark mustard/green colour not mustard/yellow as it appears on line. However I really like the colour, cut and fit. So pleased with my new coat and can’t wait to start wearing it.

Not dull or frumpy

A previous review said the pattern and colour of this coat was dull and frumpy. I have to disagree. It's lovely. Not had chance to wear it yet because it's still quite warm out, but I am sure it will be my favourite coat when the weather gets wintry. Well worth the money.
The only reason I haven't given it 5 anchors is that it was very creased on arrival. I have steamed it as Seasalt suggested, but it is still creased. Have to hope the creases will drop out when I start to wear it.

I don’t usually write reviews but I love this coat so much I’m making an exception. I love everything about it! The colour, the pattern, the style, the design features, the cosiness, the weather-proofness. And it looks great on! I’m 5’ 6’’, 144 pounds and a size 12 but I have a very athletic build with broad shoulders and quite long arms. The size 12 Plant Hunter coat fits me perfectly, even with a thick sweater underneath. I can tell already this will be my go-to bad weather coat.

I bought a similar coat (although in a different colourway) several years ago and loved it. So now it was time to renew the old favourite.............I was delighted to see that the new colour/pattern Lino Berry Dark Lake was available. It’s just my kind of colour and pattern.

Perfect Coat for the PNW

I just received this coat and it's still pretty warm in Seattle, WA so I haven't had a chance to wear it out in the weather yet. I can't speak to how it will do in the rain, but I have tried it on and I'm really happy with the look and fit! I got the graphite color and it matches the color online. It has a very nice length and it feels to be the appropriate thickness for our relatively mild winters. I don't think it would be thick enough for the winter on the East Coast or the Midwest. I also think it fits true to size.

Adore this coat!

I have only had it a few days but I absolutely love it - it’s completely waterproof and warm without being chunky.
The colour and fishtail back make it almost retro, but in a good way.

Wrong colour advertised

I love the way this coat does look and this is lovely mustard colour!
One lady had mentioned here that the colour was Green Mossy not what advertised.
I called the customer service to find out is this right?
The lady on phone said that "The customer who left review might be left wrong review? because John Lewis sell something similar?"??
Well, I believed and placed my order.
Honestly, the colour it is not what advertised: The Lady who left review on the site was right! It is GREEN MOSSY ARMY UNIFORM STYLE colour.
Not OAK or mustard at all. Perhaps bad butch?
Anyway: the colour is wrong! The quality is super and it fits perfectly.
I will return it straight forward because I don't like the colour.
Minus two anchors for that,sorry.

Great coat but colour doesn't look like picture

This is a great coat, warm enough for the cooler autumn days. I bought my normal size 8 and it's generous enough to layer up underneath for winter. However, as other reviewers have mentioned, the oak colour which looks yellow in the photo is actually a deep mustard with a greenish tinge and in some lights it actually looks green. Even though the colour was not as expected, I love it and it does suit me, so I'm keeping it!

Stunning coat ....but!!!

This coat is truly lovely - I bought the coal version 2 years ago so when I saw the mustard yellow colour I had to order it - knowing the fit would be perfect - my only niggle is that when the coat arrived it was a much darker colour .....almost moss green definitely not the lovely light yellowish colour on the picture and video advertised which is slightly disappointing however still A nice coat which doesn’t fault on quality so I will be keeping as it still goes with most of my wardrobe - just not as crazy on the colour as I was hoping

Stylish and comfortable

I have just bought this coat after admiring it for some time. I already have two other Seasalt jackets (Tiller and Bowsprit) which I love and needed something a little longer for those long walks that I now have the time to do. This coat fits the bill just right! Light but warm and looks so good. I bought this in my actual size whereas previous purchases have gone up a size, due to prior reading of reviews. I have no complaints at all and am pondering whether I might need to go for something longer maybe next year!

Fabulous

I bought this coat on a whim after hearing that the Easter weekend would be a washout. I was pleasantly surprised at how roomy it was when I first tried it on, but this allows me to layer up over jumpers. It proved to be most useful against the wind and rain on North Devon’s beaches last week and kept me very warm and dry. The only downside to this coat, is it gives me a very matronly bosom when done up and the sleeves are very long, otherwise I am sure this coat will do me proud for years to come.

Delighted

I first saw this in your Falmouth shop when visiting home to Cornwall earlier in the year. Loved it but had to limit my spend as Seasalt addict. I did size up and it is roomy but great for layering.. Quality, cosy garment looks stylish with the subtle print and drawstring waist and for once my long arms are covered. I bought a North Star cornflowerr blue mac of yours 4 years ago which I have worn and worn and still looks great. Always wash your coats on a cool wash and dry on a hanger. I notice this coat needs to be washed often and occasionally treated to Niteax which I will do. Quality nerds to be looked after and cared for. I'm hoping to retire home to Cornwall in the next 3 years and your clothes just suit that lifestyle. Now to save for a jacket!!!

I'll be honest I look at your website 3 times and I love it.

Prices often out of my range but I had my eye on the Plant Hunter coat for a while.

I Love It. It's better than I thought. Lighter in weight but that's fine. Great coat I am so pleased with it. My zip was a bit stiff but essentially it just needed to go up and down a few times and it's fine now.

Well Made. Long enough in the arm and coat length. As I'm top heavy I was worried the 14 wouldn't fit but there is ample room.

I'll be buying again next pay day. So pleased with my purchase.

It is so easy to wear - light, cosy,, hood which does not flatten the hair - beautiful in every way. I have had many compliments on the softness of the material..

The best coat ever!

I bought this coat last week after deliberating over sizes and looking at previous reviews. I ordered a size 18 - Im 5ft8 and broad shoulders but the fit is bigger than expected. Not a problem though as it allows for layers underneath. Im quite busty so the 16 might have been too snug.

The coat itself is by far the best coat I have ever bought. I have walked in the rain, freezing wind and today in the snow. I only had a base layer and a t-shirt underneath and it was so warm. I can definitely confirm, that it is:
1. Windproof
2. Waterproof
3. Very lightweight unlike my old bulky Regatta parka.

It is a beautiful coat, lovely fabric, well made and I love the little details of the anchor poppers at the back., and its lifetime guarantee !! I could rave all day about it, needless to say, if you want a coat, just get a Seasalt one. Ill be getting a sea folly one next for milder days.

I cannot praise enough. Well done Seasalt!! A masterpiece!

My favourite coat of all time

I bought one a few years ago and loved it. It’s lightweight and roomy so I can layer things underneath if I want. Pay attention to the washing instructions though! I was impatient and didn’t follow them resulting in the seams shrinking and hardening so it could not be worn. I would recommend a cold wash and do not tumble dry. I looked at many other coats to replace it but nothing came close. I’ve just ordered a replacement and received it today and having tried it on I am so happy to have it again. The old one saw me through many seasons. I bought mine in coal both times and it seems to go with everything.

Update

Following my previous review I can report this coat was wonderful in the sub zero temperatures in Poland. Layered with thermals and two jumpers I was lovely and warm and had plenty of room to move, I hadn't bought a larger size to accomodate the extra layers. Being windproof was a huge bonus as the windchill was -24c in the end. It rained on my last day and I stayed completely dry.

Good for layering

All in all a good coat - I bought it for a trip to Amsterdam where it was bitterly cold but sunny and bright so its rainwear credentials haven't been tested but it was excellent for layering over a thin puffer, a thick sweatshirt and a tee-shirt - oh and a scarf that was more like a shawl! I'm not 100% sure how well the trims will last but the plain grey is quite stylish and I like the poppered vent at the back.

Beautiful but not warm enough

I love this coat, it is beautiful and stylish BUT it is nowhere near warm enough for a proper winter coat.

I live in SW Scotland. It rains constantly. Typical winter temperature is 3-6 degrees. I cannot comfortably wear this coat, even with thermals and wool layers underneath.

This coat would have been hugely improved by proper insulation.
Very sad that I have put it away until the spring.

Very Happy

Love this coat. I am only just 5ft so it comes below my knee, with the poppers done up it is truly windproof, so much warmer than it looks and feels. Vital this week!!!! Can easily get layers underneath. My daughter helped me with the drawstring, easier with two. Pull it up to fit, push the leather to meet the coat then tie a knot it stays perfectly. The zip is a bit temperamental, doesn't always push in properly, patience. The sleeves are great, they pull in really well and secure with a popper, so fit inside my ski gloves. I am hoping to try it out in Poland this week, as long as my flight isn't cancelled, temperature there is -14C but feels like -27C!

Great for wet winter

A light, soft and warm jacket! I live on the west coast of Norway, so we have more or less scottish weather here. This jacket is perfect for extra cold days as well as days with wind and rain. The fleece lining on the inside of shoulders and hood is nice and warming, and the length at the back covers the back of my knees. Colour is blue/grey, love the details. Size is good, although I hoped it would be slightly more A-lined.

Plant Hunter

Great mid season coat, keeps the rain out and the fleecy lining is lovely and cosy. If you live on a windy coastline like me, for the winter months I would choose something with more padding or order a bigger size and layer up.
I am 5" 8' and most of the time need to buy "tall" sizes however I loved the look of this coat so much I took a chance on it. The sleeves are long enough but I wish the coat was just 2 inches longer, then I would have given it a 5. (Still keeping it though)

Perfect Winter Coat

I've had this coat just under a month and it's already seen me through, gales, rain, sleet and snow. It's comfortable, warm and dry - the perfect coat for a British winter.
After reading the other reviews about size I went for a smaller size than I would normally and it fits me perfectly, still with enough room to add more layers if needed. I tend to buy clothes in a 14, but the 12 has been perfect, the 14 would have been far too big.

Perfect...

Love this coat, it’s lightweight, it’s warmer than I thought it was going to be. Have done heavy rain, high winds and freezing temperatures and I am delighted with it. It’s a generous fit, I’m a 10 with broad shoulders and 5 ft 3, usually I would go for a 12 in coats and jackets, but this fits a treat in a 10, with room for a jumper. I can ride my bike in it too on my daily commute as the sleeves are a good length. Smart, warm and practical - perfect!

Cute coat

I ordered size 10, although usually I am 12 and it is still a little large, but awesome for layering. And layering comes in handy as I live in a place where -10°C is quite common during winter and without layering the coat would be too chilly. The leather detailing is flimsy for the drawstrings and doesn't hold up, as somebody else has already mentioned here.
I think when the snow melts, the coat would be awesome for early spring biking.

Warm and stylish

Really comfortable and great subtle colour. Love the lining. I prefer not to draw it in at the back but to have the looser drape. Quite expensive but I will wear this a lot. There's great freedom in having a long waterproof coat and saying goodbye to umbrellas.

Cosy, warm and waterproof

This is a lovely coat! I'm just shy of 5ft 2" and this comes down to my knees at the front and mid calf at the back. I've worn it in all sorts of rain and it's completely waterproof and keeps the wind out. This, combined with the fleece lining and quilting makes it very warm, and the fit is quite roomy so you can wear a jumper underneath on those extra cold days! The fleece lining in the hood is lovely and keeps your ears snug.

My only gripes are that the leather toggles don't stay put, and so I've had to tie knots in the drawstring to keep the waist pulled in. Also, leather is not a particularly ethical or sustainable material, so, since they don't work anyway, it would be wonderful to see Seasalt using something like bamboo toggles, or cork if they wanted to keep the same design.

Plant Hunter coat

Love it! So far (have only worn it a few times) it ticks the "waterproof" box and is warmer than I thought. It is well made and I like the natural looking fleecy lining in the hood and upper body. The sleeves are rather long for me so I have turned them back .

Fantastic coat

I am extremely pleased with this coat. It is light but warm with the lovely fleecy lining in the top half. Wonderful big pockets, so handy when dog walking for carrying keys, dog treats, purse... etc etc! Lovely little inner pocket too that fits my mobile perfectly. Big hood, but it can be gathered using cord and therefore doesn't blind me or blow off all the time. And of course, it looks great too. Thrilled to bits!

Brilliant coat - a pleasure to wear

I love my Planthunter coat and the pattern. I've have been wearing it on virtually all occasions this winter. I find it warm but not too warm and really comfortable. The coat is also very well made and the zip and fastenings are good quality. All in all it's a pleasure to wear

Disappointed

This coat ticks so many boxes, love the fit, the length, the style, the colour, the cute details like the anchor buttons, but I'm so disappointed about the dingy, cheap-looking fleece lining on the hood and inside the jacket. My first thought on taking it out of the bag was that I had accidentally been sent a coat that someone else had returned.
Sadly I'm returning as this is an expensive item, I can't justify spending £150 on a coat that looks like someone else has been wearing it before me.
Would definitely buy if the fleece looked better.

Not 100%waterproof

I think I have an earlier verrsion of this coat as it looks like mine but I don't have any padded lining, just a nice dark blue cotton check fabric. I don't feel the cold particularly so have found it plenty warm enough for winter. However, on a recent dog walk in heavy, persistent rain(but no wind) I found the wet had soaked through, down my front where the zip goes. I had previously taken out the drawstring at the waist - is this why I got a wet chest?. Is there anything I can do about this as I am otherwise very pleased with my mac.?

Nice coat but not warm enough

I have been wearing this coat for the about 2 months now and while I think it’s a lovely coat it isn’t warm enough! The material is very nice and looks smart the length is great and it’s definitely water proof, the fleece lined parts are fine in fact sometimes they are too warm but the sleeves and the rest of the coat aren’t padded enough for a Cleethorpes winter walking my dogs along the coast when it’s about -2 to 3 degrees! The most annoying part is where the zip is it’s so thin the wind blows right through it even with a fleece under neath and I’ve had to put some tightening toggles on the draw cord to keep it gathered around the waist! I think I’ll have to invest in a warmer coat this year this one will be ok for autumn maybe but for £150 I was hoping this winter coat would be great for a few winters to come! And finally the phone pocket is not easy to get to in fact I keep my phone in the hand pocket I would prefer a left breast inside pocket!!

Plant Hunter coat

This is my third winter of wearing my Plant Hunter coat and I can honestly say it's the best coat I've ever purchased. Originally I had been considering the Janelle coat but on the advice of an assistant at the St Ives store I tried the Plant Hunter instead, which was much more suitable for my height of 5 ft 3. I usually over heat really easily but somehow this coat is just right and I now wear it for a large portion of the year. I would describe myself as top end of a size 14 generally but my coat is a size 12 and fits me well. Thanks Seasalt!

Just the ticket

I’ve had my Plant Hunter coat for 2 winters and was so pleased with it my daughter purchased one for uni. It has proved invaluable with the cold of North Yorkshire and the wet of Manchester. An on trend colour for her looking ‘cool’ for her age. She ordered her size and we had to exchange for a smaller size and there’s still room to layer under if needed. I have worn mine for playground duty through 2 winters and been snug and dry, even in the worst weather.

Absolutely fabulous

Bought this coat a few years ago and it has been absolutely fabulous!! I always look for to winter so I can wear it again. It is completely waterproof, tested out on many very wet and windy walks, and so cozy, soft and warm and lightweight. Lovely detailing and smart enough to wear around town, you've definitely nailed it Seasalt!

I dithered over buying this coat for a few weeks as I normally never pay over £100 for a item of clothing but my new resolve is quality over quantity.

Love, love, love!

I bought this coat in the flower pattern and it’s just lovely, I’m only 5’, so I was concerned this coat would be too long for me. It reaches my knees at the front and just above Ray calves at the back, It’s great because I live in the West of Scotland and it rains a lot!! I’ve worn it in heavy rain and been completely dry. Another great thing about this coat is that it’s really lightweight and not at all bulky. But very cosy! I’m a curvy, slightly flabby size 12 and the size 12 fits me with room to spare.

Nice jacket with a little production fault

While ordering I was a little irritated that i haven to chosse such an big size (the size guide told me 14, I normally wear 10-12) and i was a little worried, that it could not fit (because I ordered from germany), but it turned out to fit perfectly and there's enough space to wear a cozy cardigan under the jacket. What in my opinion is need to be done, becaus I think the jacket is a little thin to comprehend with the rough weather here at the north sea, but I'll see that when it's getting colder. For now it's perfect. No wind and rain getting through the fabric while there is no feeling that the jacket it's getting mooist from inside, because of your sweat (I sweat really fast, so I know what I'm talking aboout), it's awesome, I love it <3 It also looks very nice and I already got some compliments on the jacket. I was worried that the fabric could look to much like jeans, but thats not the fact. The structure on the fabric doesn't appear as strong in real life than on the pictures. One thing that I was a little angry about is the fact that the drawcord was messed up. I had the problem allready with my old parka, from another brand, so I have expierience with this. I opened a seam and fixed the problem as good as I could. Because it was not the exact same mistake my old parka had I had to improvise a little, but it does work so it's okay.

Great for winter

This coat is so warm and great for rainy late autumn and winter days. I have it in my usual size 8 and is very roomy, I can easily wear my thickest wooly jumper underneath. I'm planning on taking this coat with me when I go to Northern Finland in winter.
If you like your coat to be fitted and don't live in a place with the coldest winters, I'd maybe suggest to size down.

A warm, cosy coat

I have a lot of Seasalt clothing but this is the first coat I have purchased and am I so glad I did (patterned version). It's so light weight and yet warm and cosy to wear. I have only one small gripe, and that is the sleeves are very long. I have long arms and yet they could do with being a few inches shorter. Having said that the coat is an absolute winner for me. Hence the five stars.

Great Spring/Autumn coat

I bought this coat as my winter coat, and while it is a good colour, has nice little features, great for cycling, big pockets etc, it is not very warm. If you're striding across a beach with a dog you may be fine in winter, but standing watching fireworks recently (with two jumpers underneath) I was pretty cold. Furry lined pockets and sleeves would really help to make this more of a winer coat.

Cosy and Dry

I am very happy with this coat as it is well-made and gloriously lightweight while also waterproof and warm. I like the fabric and the colourway/pattern. Frankly I was just SO overjoyed to be able to get any nice coat in my size (22). A million blessings on Seasalt, for this! However, like many manufacturers, Seasalt has not got this quite right. - they've scaled the larger size coat up wrongly to fit even taller and longer armed women. But most size 22 women are not 5ft 10"+ with arms like a chimpanzee! We are just in the normal height range, but fatter round the bust and the behind! So, to be honest, this coat is really too long for me and the sleeves are far too long (I'm 5ft.4") - but I'm wearing it anyway! Maybe this is something Seasalt could look into, for the future?

Beautiful coat

I’m very satisfied with this coat, love the colour( I choose the gray one ), the shape, the details ... and the lifetime guarantee is brilliant!
It’s warm and light and perfectly waterproof.
My only criticism would be the hood that falls off when the wind is strong, the leather thingies don’t help much to keep it up.
At times I need to buy size 12 with Seasalt, depending on the cut, as garments may pull a bit at the shoulders and bust line, but I checked the measurements in the details before buying and went for the size 10: it fits perfectly with plenty of room for pullovers.

Not fitted enough

I really liked the look of this coat but unfortunately the fit just wasn’t right for me. There wasn’t enough structure to it so I just looked swamped in it. I’m 5ft9 so didn’t expect that. The sleeves were wide enough which was good as many coats too tight. The two way zip is a great idea. Had to return the coat though as the fit was just too loose.

Great coat. Good weight and style for windy/rainy weather. Bought in usual size and will be able to fit a thick jumper underneath when it gets colder. Sleeve length/width brilliant - often find sleeves too short and narrow on coats. Colour (coal) is a good 'non-drab' grey to go with anything. Tested it out on week in Cornwall last week and it stood up to the drizzle and wind which was (thankfully) interspersed with lots of sunshine! Will be equally as useful back home as looks smart enough to wear 'around town' as well. A worthwhile investment.

Seasalt is the best!

What a coat! The colour dark grey and the dark oatmeal colour of the fleece really suit me. I'm small (5ft 2") and bought a size 8. I always check the measurements before ordering! There is enough room for a cardigan or jumper underneath but without it looking like a tent! The length is just right and the sleeves are slightly long but fastening the cuffs with the second button helps and actually looks really nice. I don't think the sleeves should be shorter. I like the tail at the back which is not too long and looks elegant. The coat doesn't feel stuffy or bulky- it's soft and light. The lining and fleece is very cosy! The pockets are deep and they feel nice on the inside with a soft smooth lining. I'm not sure if the coat will be warm enough for very cold temperatures because it feels so light, but I'm certain that it'll be warm enough for most of the winter and autumn. I'm so pleased that I don't have to look elsewhere for jackets or coats in the future. I'm a huge fan! Oh yes, and the price is not bad at all for such nice design and quality.

Amazing rainwear

I have now purchased seven raincoats from Seasalt. Five are lovely raincoats in super colours. The other two are winter weight with fleece lining in the hoods and upper body. I am thrilled with them all. They are beautifully made, nice to wear and smart to look at. They are slightly larger than expected so have plenty of room for a sweater. If you wonder why I have bought so many waterproof coats it is because I live on the east coast where I walk my dog three times a day so I need waterproof and windproof coats.. Well done Seasalt!

Blooming love it!

This coat is gorgeous! Fantastic quality (although expect nothing less from sea salt tbh). Good thar it is padded at top a bit more but not all over as I get too hot! Great fit (I’ve just lost weight though and this is my celebration coat so I may be a bit biased!) lovely length even though I’m a shorty at a little over 5ft! Love the pattern, it’s nice to have something a bit different to plain.

Only on downside for me personally is that sleeves are a little too long and even with popper the slide over hands a bit. But not too much to stop me wearing!

Really comfy and stylish winter coat.

Looking forward to the cooler weather!

So pleased with purchase!

I love this coat. It is lightweight but warm and very waterproof. Wore it for the first time to have lunch at the pub and when we came out it was raining extremely hard. I was completely dry after walking half a mile home. The only slight issue is that if the sleeves are made tighter by using the other press stud provided, I find that the lining hangs below the outer fabric. But if I have the sleeve on the looser setting, this does not happen. Only minor issue.

Great Coat

This coat is very practical for the British weather, the water drips off the hood, and the fleece lining keeps you snug. There is definitely room to wear an extra layer when it gets really cold.
Being windproof keeps that chill off you on windy days.
The one negative and it might be because I am on the cusp of being a petite fit (5'3" 1/2) is the length of the arms.

This is a lovely warm and windproof coat. Wore it out to the sea during storm Brian, it didn't let any wind in, and boy was there a lot of wind! Have yet to test the waterproof element of the coat, but if it is as good as the other aspects, it should be fine.

Lovely coat. Looks great. It's warm enough for Autumn without a big jumper, and for winter with a jumper underneath. It feels well made and good quality and it has kept me dry in the Manchester rain.

creased

Really wanted to like this as I like the style, colour & fleecy lining. This is the second Seasalt coat I've had to return due to being creased. I tried steaming with my iron & hanging up in a steamy bathroom but it didn't help, so had to return, as the creases just made them look cheap and scruffy. Maybe you should store the coats on hangers & deliver like that as some stores do? Fed up with trips to the PO, but at least returns are free.

What a coat!

This is exactly the autumn/early winter coat I was looking for. I was looking for a snuggly toasty coat for the sobbing autumn days and I could not be happier. The coat is well made and the material is high quality. As I was shopping online, I was unsure of the size. I ordered a 14 even though I'm occasionally a 16 around the hips. It fits wonderfully. If you're hesitant, just get it, love it and then decide :)

Lovely coat

I'm very pleased with this. After reading the other reviews, I ordered a size smaller than usual and the fit is good.. I could wear a jumper underneath as long as it wasn’t too thick. The coat is warm and waterproof, and looks more stylish than some other raincoats I looked at. It was almost too warm when I first wore it in mid-September but I think it will be fine for the winter (Central Scotland). The lino flower pattern is unusual and I have had many compliments, even from my hard-to-please teenage children. It is fairly long at the back but I would say the pictures on the website are pretty accurate representation..

This coat is fabulous. I wanted a waterproof coat that wasn't plain but not with a bright flower print. This coat has a lovely pattern which is eye catching without being to bright.

Ooooh how i love this coat!!!

I heard about Seasalt through Mumsnet, as I like to look at the items they recommend (by other mums) I have had my eye on this coat for a while as I loved the unusual pattern on it. I needed a new 'winter coat' for the school run and my current coat would leave my thighs soaking wet as the water would drip off the coat onto my thighs. (Also this particular coat wouldn't breathe either - so I would have moisture build up on the inside of the coat)
Not so with this beautiful coat. It obviously one of the longer length coats and covers me down to my knees. It is very much of the 'generous' fit (and did consider returning it for the size down - I have bought a size 22 and can wear coats varying in sizes from 18 to 22. I ordered this in a size 22 to fit over my winter woollies but a size 20 would have been a more true fit) However, I will be honest, I didn't return it as I couldn't part with it!!! I love this coat so much. The only other coat I have loved this much was a Boden coat.
So to recap - I have plenty of room under the coat for layers and winter woollies. If anyone is dithering, then ORDER NOW!!!!
Its not too heavy but I can tell its going to be warm in the colder months.
Guess i'm a seasalt shopper for life now!!

Lovely but a bit big

Lovely coat - very good quality - but just a bit on the large side all over. I ordered a 12 first, which was very large, so swapped for a 10 but still quite big all over and as I'm only 5'3" it swamped me. So I spoke to the nice woman at Seasalt customer services who recommended the Windward coat instead which is a much better proportion on me.
Also the Planthunter is a warmer coat, with the fur lining, and actually I was after a lighter-weight coat - so all in all the Windward was better for me but the Planthunter was still a lovely coat if you're a bit taller.

Just had this coat delivered and I was so nervous it would not live up to my expections because is pricey but no worries.
It is a beautiful subtle pattern and not silvery as I thought it might be. Perfect length for a 5ft 2", didn't make me feel weighed down or too muffled. It so soft and warm inside and adjustable in so many ways depending on what you put underneath.

Fabulous quality and design.

Received my well-packaged jacket from Seasalt today, just 3 days after online purchase. It is at least as good as I hoped it would be. The coat is substantial but not heavy, with the fleece lining of the top part and hood being a lovely quality. The zip feels strong and the additional popper fastenings on top with reduce and wind sneaking through. I bought the Coal colour, which is a beautiful very dark grey, not as stark as black, it's lovely. The coat is not cheap, but I think it is value for money.

Great find

The Plant Hunter coat is just as I expected and am very pleased with it. It is quite cosy for autumn but very lightweight with a lovely soft lining half quilted and half furry as shown. I have not yet tested it in heavy rain but has been a lovely and very comfortable coat to wear. I chose the Lino Flower Light Metal print which I love and looks exactly like the photos, and makes wearing a mac far more inviting. There are toggles to cinch in the waist however my only criticism is that II do find they don't 'lock' in place and so I have to keep readjusting them to shape the waist.

Very Happy with it

I am very happy to get it and Long Seafolly Jacket via online purchase then send to Australia. It's almost 95% same as photos on the website :)
I am 152cm and slim girl, this coat length is upon knees(front) and calf(back), and it still have space to wear a jumper inside, just perfect what I want. Moreover, suit for windy and wet weather in Melbourne.

Perfect winter coat

I bought this coat in the Lino pattern last winter and I wore it constantly throughout autumn and winter and am looking forward to wearing it again this year. It is light and comfortable as well as being waterproof, roomy and warm. If it was really cold then I can fit an extra jumper underneath with no bother. I live in a city where I don't want a full length fleece lining so it is a prefect temperature. The good of lovely and warm for extra help in a cold wind and rain. I have had tons of compliments and don't need a new one this season as my last year one looks as good as new.

Great coat

The patterned coat is light yet has a warm lining. The blue pattern on a grey background is attractive. I look forward to wearing this coat in the cooler weather.
Sleeves are a little long for me. I am petite so a 3rd popper on the sleeve would have been useful.

Perfectly Packaged

*In addition to my full review already written, I must say how delighted I was with the way in which my garment was packed/delivered. It came neatly folded in a special, waterproof & sealed 'Seasalt' bag, with a beautiful 'Hello from Cornwall' note tucked inside. Also, prior to placing my order, I called Seasalt Customer Care to get advice on sizing - & they were SO friendly & helpful, even the Manager got involved by trying on a coat for me while I waited on the phone - that's good service! :-) Then the delivery was speedy & efficient, no quibbles - I will absolutely be ordering from Seasalt again, as the proof of the pudding is in the eating! Thank you Seasalt :-)

Amazing

Over the moon with the Plant Hunter coat, Iabsolutely adore it! Top marks for both style & comfort, with a gorgeous lightweight feel, but 100% waterproof - what more could you want with our West Country weather?? In a dreamy, pool-green shade, the Plant Hunter coat is eye-catching & practical. Suitable for all seasons, as although this is the Winter version of the popular Hellweathers coat, it can also be worn on chilly, drizzly days because it's NOT heavy or bulky. Packed with style features such as cosy fleece lining to the hood & inside top half of the coat (hence not too hot), toggle-ropes & ditsy little 'anchor' buttons - it's bang on trend! 10/10 Seasalt, this one gets my vote! :-)

PS) This coat is VERY generous fit, I'm usually a size 16/18, but ordered the 14 in the sale due to low stock availability - & it fits perfectly! I would definitely recommend looking at the individual size measurements on each coat/garment, as with Seasalt they are NOT all the same - as they are made by hand, NOT robot :-)

Nice coat in a great quality, love it! The colour (pool) is like expected.
The packing it came in was way too feeble for the harsh journey, obviously the buttons of the coat itself even punched a little hole in the fabric. Kept it nevertheless.

Tested in a real downpour, looking for the next.

Versatile coat

I am very pleased with my Planthunter coat which is a nice colour (coal) and s good length. Last year I bought the same coat in the unlined version( called Hellweather), which I liked very much, and decided that a warmer one would be useful also. The lined version is roomier, so that the same size can accommodate a much thicker jumper underneath, which is sensible. However, it doesn't make me look fatter, I'm glad to say. My only quibble is that the creases from the coat being folded in transit have not come out. I did contact Seasalt about this, and they suggested steam ironing, but I have still not risked it as the label clearly says 'do not iron' and I am afraid of ruining it. My summing up is that it is warm and stylish.

Comments:

Dear Iris M
Thank you for your review; we're sorry to hear about the creases in your Plant Hunter Coat.
We wouldn't recommend ironing the surface, as this might damage the special waterproof surface of the fabric. However, there is something else you might like to try: if your iron has a "continuous steam" setting (often used for items already hanging, e.g. curtains) this is extremely useful for reducing creases in garments. It's a similar process to the professional steamer machines used in many clothing shops.
Alternatively, you can hang the coat in a steamy environment, such as a bathroom for a short while. The creases should naturally fall out.
I hope this advice helps. If we can be of further assistance, please let us know.
Best wishes, Seasalt

Utterly disappointed

I was really disappointed with this coat. The pictures look amazing and it sounds great, but the pockets are pathetic, the woolly lining only comes down to your belly button, and there is no secure inner pocket for your valuables, just a phone pocket (or maybe I just couldn't find it?). Would be an amazing coat if it was actually functional, not just waterproof.

Plant Hunter in Lino

Ordered 18, but very generous in size, sent back and ordered 16. Am so glad I did, it's exactly what it says on the tin!! I'm a 'good 16' and this fitted very well. It's well made and I love it, it's warm but light and not frumpy as some macs can be. I look forward to wearing it, as it's so me!! The only downside if I'm honest is I think it's a bit pricy, hopefully it's true that you get what you pay for. Maybe you could offer the washing product that you need to wash it in for free to coats over 125.00. Great sales team, who were very helpful when I rang as well, who informed me of signing up for the lifetime guarantee.

I really like this coat! I got it in 'pool', which is a beautiful colour and has a lovely texture. This coat is very warm without being bulky and is nice and flattering due to the adjustable waist gathering. The buttons at the back add interest and the length is great - it really keeps the rain out! Keen to buy more now hehe ;)

Plant Hunter Coat

I've had this coat for around six (or so) months now and I absolutely adore it. It kept me warm and dry in the wild Hebridean winter, and loads of people have commented on how lovely it is and asked where i got it. I like the fact that there is no garish brand label on it. It's sometimes difficult to tell from Seasalt's colour labels what the colour actually is (something I find a little irritating as I have often had to email and ask whether something is black, grey or navy!), but coal is fairly straightforward: a dark grey. I would buy another Seasalt coat in a heartbeat based on the quality of this one.

Plant Hunter Coat

I bought this coat towards the end of 2016. It's a beautiful coat, warm and comfortable to wear. I was doubtful about it being 100% waterproof. I was recently caught in a huge rain and thunderstorm - I remained completely dry inside the coat. Fabulous coat absolutely love it.

Happy customer

Received my new Seasalt coat and am so happy with it! The blue has a touch of green and grey in it and is a gorgeous color, the fluff on the inside is very soft and I'm loving all the details of internal pocket and strings to help the waist fit better. It's surprisingly warm and has been perfect in the cold and (always) wet Seattle weather. Fit is big enough that I could order my regular size and still fit a sweater underneath comfortably. My favorite Seasalt coat yet!

Plant Hunter Coat

Lightweight, warm and cosy, also guaranteed waterproof (much needed in the Hebrides!). Love that there are snap fasteners not velcro. My only niggle is the lack of a phone pocket, or indeed any internal pockets apart from one at knee level (not sure what that is for?). So one star/anchor deducted.

Disappointed

I bought this coat at full price (unheard of for me!) and was initially pleased. I was disappointed that it was thin and not nearly as padded as I had thought it would be but with fleece and/or sweater makes it good. The hood is perfect as it properly protects your face. It is also totally waterproof.
But it has been pointed out by my sister today (I have no idea how long it has been like it) the back part of the coat overhangs the poppers giving it an awful bagged/cheap coat look from the back. I obviously cannot now return it but it won't be worn except on the rainiest day for dog walking

Comments:

Dear Holmemaker
Thanks for your review. The 'overhang' that you refer to at the back of the coat is actually a design feature, which allows easy movement and prevents the lining and outside fabric pulling as you walk. If you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact our friendly Customer Service Team on 01326 640075.

With no backing on the zip which you would expect for the money it is extremely uncomfortable to wear. With the top of the zip rubbing on your chin.

No elastic on cuffs which again you would expect.

Desperate replacement

Bought my first plant hunter coat at end of last summer and loved it. Perfect for my daily walk to work along the river path in all weathers. Following a recent bad fall my lovely coat was cut off me by the ambulance service.

I am absolutely thrilled with this coat, it is exactly what i was looking for, something to wear in the rain, not too bulky and heavy. It is light very warm and waterproof and wind proof! All these things. I love it!!
It has a very cosy lovely soft lining to the upper body and hood.
The hood is particularly nice, it is not too big so doesnt blow off or feel too combersome, it fits snugly,

Nice quality, not so great fit for curvy figures

This coat is lovely quality, but my shape is curvy - big bust and hips, and while this coat fitted me, it had a kind of baggy cut that made me look fatter than I am! I think it is a cut of coat that would work much better in a more straight up and down body type. I need something with more of a waist to it!

Another Seasalt favourite

I bought this coat for a January trip to New York. We had storms and near zero temperatures, and horizontal as well as vertical rain, and finally snow, but it stood up to it all. It is generously sized enough to fit a sweater underneath and a hat under the hood. I wore just a tee shirt under it on warmer days, and a fleece gilet on colder and that was enough. It is lightweight enough to carry around, The cleverly designed hem sends rain onto the ground not down your legs. Plus the grey/blue leaf and flower pattern meant I didn't look, as my partner put it, as if I'd just stepped off a trawler. Long enough for tall people.

Nice Coat

I had this bought for Christmas after admiring my niece's, and I wear it every weekend on the East Coast. It's lovely & warm though not sure it's worth the full asking price as the finish quality isn't perfect. With regard to the size, I am normally a curvy size 14 but I ordered a 12 and it fits just nicely, even with a thick jumper on.

Disappointing - not warm & pockets not waterproof!

I'm sad to say I'm really disappointed with this coat. I bought it in late autumn, after checking with staff that it was warm enough to wear all through winter which they said it was - it's quite thin, which is why I asked.

It isn't a winter coat that you can just throw on to keep warm, it's just warm over a thick jumper, which any thin / spring / autumn windproof coat would be. Not as warm as other winter coats. But I still liked it.

First rainstorm I was out for 10 minutes - the pockets completely soaked through. The material seems to be the same all over, but it's as if the pockets aren't lined with the same waterproof protection. Wallet and phone completely drenched as in pools of water in the pocket, and having to dry my phone out. And sleeves soaking wet up to the elbows.
I didn't expect this from a coat saying it's 'waterproof'.

I really like this coat. I wanted a coat that was warm,waterproof, long enough to cover most of me and yet light weight and this certainly fits the bill.

The Plant Hunter Coat

I'm enjoying wearing this coat as it is warm, cosy, and not too heavy. Initially I didn't think this style would suit me as I am only 5' 2". However it is fine and is more like a full-length coat on me! The sleeves are a bit long but that is true of most garments I buy and is not a big problem when wearing in Winter.
An expensive buy for me but worth the money as I feel good in it!

Pretty good but not quite perfect

Beautiful fabric (Lino flower design) and some great styling (love the dipped tail with poppers), warm, wind proof, waterproof and love fur lining (plus room for warm fleece). But hood not brilliant design and metal zip and poppers very cold against chin when all done up - please add a fleece chin protector, Seasalt! Also some prettier plain fabrics would be great - crushed raspberry, pistachio, coffee, etc - winter is dull enough without all storm coats being grey, navy or dark green!

Pool is a lovely subtle colour. The coat is excellent quality, warm but not too heavy. All my Seasalt coats, yes I have more than one, are a size 12, which is a good fit for me.

Plant Hunter Lino Flower

Got this for Christmas as I wished for a cosy jacket to compliment my North Mac which I adore. Unfortunately the size is completely oversized and I had to return it. Bought it when there was 20% discount and think it is unfair that Seasalt do not do an exchange and I would have to pay the full price. Is this something the company would consider for the future as they must be loosing custom.

Warm and cosy this winter

I have another Seasalter coat but it just wasn't cutting it as winter arrived so I got the Plant hunter coat with the cosy fleece lining, and I'm so glad I did. I got the size 16 to give my hips room and that leaves room for warm layers on top. The two way zip means I can sit comfortably in the car without undoing the coat completely. I am wearing it everywhere I go.

i love the length of it - so useful - hasn't got wet yet but does feel super waterproof

I am in between a 10 and a 12 so ordered both as other reviewers said it was quite roomy and i think that is probably true as the 10 - fits me perfectly

thanks Seasalt - another great product :)

Great buy

Really delighted with this coat. I bought a size down and it is still roomy enough to wear layers underneath. Only slight fault is that the leather toggles internally aren't robust enough to hold the tension if you want to gather in the waist.

Great coat

I was thrilled with this coat. I treated myself after loosing 4st. It was a great fit, lovely pattern, colour and style. Although waterproof it was light to wear and warm. Unfortunately the first time I wore I I met with an accident and tripped over a loose pavement. I fell very heavily, hurting my knees and elbow quite badly. I still wanted to write a review and mention it, as although I was extremely disappointed to find I had made a small hole in the elbow of the coat, I cannot believe that it was not ripped to shreds with the force it took. I am therefore praising the quality and toughness of the fabric which I am sure will make the coat very hardwearing. Due to the pattern the hole is slightly disguised and I shall continue to wear the coat, hoping the hole does not get bigger. I really recommend the coat and a friend has just ordered the same one as she loved mine so much.

Super coat

I am very pleased with this coat and the 20% off price, which tempted me to try it. It is a bit loose but will go over cardi or fleece in chilly weather. I like the lining in sleeves and body, so it is lightweight but also cosy and warm. I am 5'5" so it almost comes to the knee which is a good length. I got the lino flower pattern which is great. Haven't tested it in rain yet but we live on the south coast so it will get wind and rain!

Ticks the boxes

I'd been looking for a while for a lovely warm, yet light coat that was long-ish and waterproof. Quite a big ask in some ways.
But I Have Found It !
The 20% discount drew me in and I ordered using 'next day' delivery (as I was going away !).
It's a no hassle delivery - if you happen to be out, your coat doesn't disappear for ever, you just leave a safe place instruction.
Anyway, it is every thing I'd been looking for : light, long-ish, warm without being bulky, waterproof and the furry bit of lining is SO SOFT. I'm glad it doesn't look too 'outdoor pursuitsy', if you know what I mean, and I love the linoprint-look fabric.
I'm a fat, busty size 16 but its fine with a jumper on.
Arms a tad long, but that's actually quite nice sometimes out walking the dog in the cold.
Yep, it's a winner !

Perfect

I have the summer version of this coat which I love so decided to try out the winter version as well. I love it. Warm but not heavy. True to size. Sleeves are a bit long but thats ok. The best bit is that it is completely waterproof. What more could you need?

Fantastic coat

One if the mums at school had the green plant coat it looked such good quality. So approched her and asked the make .. needless to say its warm windproof and brilliant for the outside school runs which is what i needed. So good my sister in law got one too !! Sleeves a good length for my long arms never normally can get decent length so over the moon

Good winter Coat

When it came it was thinner than expected but as a plus that makes it light too. I haven't really tested it but so far so good. I don't tramp the cliff tops in all weathers and more often than not it will be worn in the car so it is ideal for me. When I have walked in it it has been warm and comfortable and waterproof.

My Perfect Coat

I just love my new coat. It's waterproof, wind-proof and warm, all of which are essential when you live on the coast of North West England! We get lots of weather!

I purchased it in my usual size 12, but felt it was too large, so returned it and got a size 10, which is absolutely perfect - there's plenty of room for a thick sweater underneath when the weather gets even colder.

Thank you SeaSalt. I will definitely be back for more of your garments in the future.

Great coat

I am so glad I bought this coat as I have to be out of the house at 6.20 in the morning and this is a lovely toasty coat that looks great. The hood is a real bonus as my hair tends to go to frizz in the damp, so putting the hood up prevents this. I definitely recommend it.

I'd been looking for a truly waterproof coat for so long and had wasted so much money doing so. A colleague had purchased a Plant Hunter Coat from you and sang it's praises, so I decided to order one.........Best decision ever, I love my coat. It's so light and truly comfortable to wear, keeping me cosy and dry, but not overheating. The Lino Flower pattern is beautiful and dressy also, love it, love it, love it. It was a lot of money for me to spend, but so worth it and hopefully it will last a long, long time. I'm now singing your praises to anyone who asks about

Good but not great

I bought this as a replacement for my previous sea salt coat and while I am mostly happy with it as the fit is perfect (has a bit more bum room than the old model). There are some nice touches with regards to piping detailing, yet it is missing an inner zip pocket and flap on the inside of the zip so the zip gets cold when it touches my face. It hasn't rained yet so yet to test it in these conditions.

Great coat but poor sizing

I have the Hellweathers Mac and absolutely love it. I was very excited that a warmer insulated version was available however, it is much much bigger than my Hellweathers even though I ordered the same size. The smaller size is now out of stock.

Brilliant midweight winter coat

This coat is 100% waterproof, and having had two recent 'technical' waterproofs that didn't achieve this I can't say how much I appreciate this! It is warm enough for autumn and spring without too many layers, for real winter you'd want something cosy underneath. Plenty of room for that and I will use a heavy weight gillet if necessary. It is so wonderful to be able to buy a coat that does what it needs to but looks stylish while doing it - thank you seasalt.

This is great coat. Only had a few weeks and worn everyday! Works with everything. Comfy, warm, yet still lightweight. Good sizing, I can wear with finer jumpers and bulky ones/layers thanks to inside drawstring enabling more shape/less - as required. Really happy and waterproof. My second coat from seasalt also got the lighter bowsprit style- equally fab. You'll be the first port of call if/when I need another!

Plant hunter coat

A nice coat but I have found that it does not fit my figure very well. I tried it with my summer dresses and it seemed fine but now I have discovered that it rides up over my court trousers and feels baggy in the top half being short the coat reaches my knees. And feels rather tight as it is a straight coat and fits lower than it would on taller people. I would not purchase it again and will try on. In the new Seasalt shop in York when I next need one in future.Also I will buy when I need to wear the coat rather than a couple of months earlier when I am not wearing he clothes it was ntended to fit with. If I had realised this when I purchased it I would have changed it for a different style . I also felt rather frumpy when I wore it.and don't feel smart.

A cosy coat

I have had the opportunity to test the coat out in different weathers and it has kept me warm and dry. I love the longer length, no more cold thighs and I like the long sleeves. I have received lots of compliments for the stylish design. I wouldn't have minded having another inside pocket, maybe higher up than the hem. Also I find the zip end quite fiddly to fit together if my fingers are cold. but overall I'm really pleased with my purchase.

Beautiful coat

Lovely coat, great length just how I like it. The sleeves is a bit thinner than I would like, thin padding might just do it. I would be warm and cosy. I have not tried with a woolly jumper yet so it might help. I love seasalt coat, still wearing another one shorter length but warmer so alternating depending on weather.
On the big size for me I am between 12/14 and based on review went for a 14, luckily I like my coat with space for layering.
More colours please.

Rain...what rain

The plant hunter coat was bought because I had previously purchased the raincoat version. It was so stylish and had been 100 per cent water and wind proof. I was delighted to find the winter version and purchased straight away. This coat is fantastic. I live next to national trust common land on top of a hill, were I walk my dog daily, the wind is biting and the rain lashing. In this coat I am warm and dry. I was so impressed I used the sample fabric that came with the coat to video a demo of how water resistant it is and uploaded it to my friends on facebook.

It's a great coat for the ugly weather in germany. The coat is very low weight and so comfortable. If it's to cold for rain, it it's warm enough to wear too. I'm 1,76 cm and the arm lenght is perfekt, also the size. The processing is great. And two friends buy another coat by seasalt after they look it at me. I'm so happy with my new coat.

Warm and dry

Love this coat. I'm a 14 with big boobs and broad shoulders and find it difficult to find coats that fit properly. This coat is a lovely shape, keeps me dry on the school run and has been plenty warm enough so far (though we haven't had any really cold weather yet). I can still fit a jumper under it and not feel tight. I've had lots of lovely comments about it too.

Perfect for Autumn

My lovely new coat arrived just in time for a weekend away in the beautiful Welsh countryside. Warm, wind proof and rain proof perfect for this time of year when our weather can be so unpredictable. Pretty fabric design, lightweight and a good length. The length of the arms is a little on the long side for me. However I think it's a great investment, worth every penny and wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to my friends. Well done Seasalt.

Excellent cold weather cost and raincoat

I'm 5'9", and bought size 16. I like the length and cut of this coat. (Longer in the back, slightly shorter in the front like the Hellsweather coat) The coal grey colour is very nice, very versatile and will go with most colours of jeans and trousers. My size goes between 16 and 18 on many items. Although the 16 is a wee bit neat in the hips, for me (not fault of coat!), the generous shoulders are plenty in 16. As usual with my height, I'd have preferred the drawstring tie to be a few inches lower in the waist. Despite these slight niggles, I really like the construction and appearance of the coat. The warm fleece lining in the hood is a great idea, and it extends inside down the back, making it very cosy. I feel every time I buy a Seasalt coat, I have purchased a coat of exceptional quality. Most are breathable and yet waterproof. I know as well that a Seasalt coat will last and I am glad to buy a product designed in Cornwall!

Winter warmer

An excellent value coat. Not only water/wind and coldproof, it's beautifully made and finished. It's roomy, to allow a warm layer underneath it, but can be cinched in to fit without any extra layers. A sensible length for the cold weather, and I really like the colour. Subtle, not the usual black or navy.

Lovely coat

Good quality coat. One of its best features is its sleeves - they are long enough! So many coats have sleeves that are too short. It's a good length too - I'm quite short, so it covers my legs well. I haven't worn it in the rain yet, so am hoping it's waterproof. It seems warm, but the colder weather is yet to come and to prove that. I also love the design - a bit different, without being garish.

Love it!

I wore my new coat for the first time today to take my grandson to school and though quite chilly outside I was lovely and warm in my coat. The fur lined shoulder area whilst light weight is just enough to keep out the chill. I do not like a very heavy coat so this is perfect and would take layers underneath as required. The coat and sleeves are a good length - I am size 18 and 5'7" and the fit is perfect for me. I love the pattern and it does look overall better than any illustration can show. I did think seriously about the cost but it is worth every penny and I am very happy with my purchase - I am sure I will be visiting the Seasalt website again.!!

Perfect raincoat!

I wore this beautiful coat for the first time on Saturday to watch my son play rugby in the pouring rain. While others were taking eyes out with huge brollies, I relied on the coat with the hood up. It was fantastic - it kept me dry and warm, and after another brilliant victory we went inside for tea and within a few minutes it seemed, the coat was completely dry. When the weather gets cooler I may have to wear a fleece underneath- the arms have little lining - but that's not a problem. Good job Seasalt!

a beautifully made coat

I'm delighted with the "Plant Hunter" coat; it's really substantial, well made and as light as a feather. I bought it for cold/wet dog walks but it also looks really smart and will be a good all-round coat for autumn and winter use. It's really well-made and even has a two-way zip. It's a generous fit around the body, although I had to change for a bigger size as the sleeve top openings were a bit slim for chunky winter sweaters underneath (although would be fine for "normal" work clothes etc.)

LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!!

Like the previous reviews I've not had the chance to try my coat out in the rain yet but when I do I'm sure it will live up to all my expectations. The material is of a very high standard and it is beautifully made. I am 5'9" and it is long enough both front and arm with wonderfully long sleeves for long limbed ladies like myself. There's plenty of room to wear a warm jumper underneath so no need to be cold!! I can't wait to win the Lottery so I can have one of every item made by Seasalt. I used to be a Boden fan but now it's Seasalt. Well done and thank you for your beautiful clothes!

Love this!

I love, love, LOVE this coat! This is the first Seasalt item I have ever bought and I'm sure it won't be the last! In one visit to the uk I'd tried another style of coat on and the arms were too short for me and this worried me, as I wanted to purchase a coat online, but that's not a problem with this coat! At £150 it took a while to decide whether to buy it or not so when I was next in the uk I visited one of your stores and tried it on. I'm so glad I waited! This coat is lightweight yet warm, functional yet stylish and I love my colour choice! Obviously it's not currently the weather to wear it but I know that in the wind and rain of a typical Manx winter I'll be warm and dry!

Gorgeous, snuggly coat

This coat, though a little bit more than I would normally pay, is well worth the money. It is warm and waterproof, great for winter walks. It is slightly on the large size, but should take chunky clothes and there is an internal drawstring to give a better fit. It should be an asset through the cold months to come.

Expensive but excellent

This is the most expensive coat I have purchased but I already have a Hellweather I am happy with, and as this is the warmer version of that, then decided it was a good investment! It is beautifully made and felt lovely and cosy on. Two good external pockets but I think it could be better with a secure internal pocket near the top which is useful for a phone/keys. Normal size has plenty of room for winter clothes underneath.

Lovely coat but big sized.

This is a lovely coat - I chose the Squid Ink colourway and it's very nice. However I felt a bit 'drowned' in it - I am only 5'3" and have quite short arms, so although I considered down-sizing from a 12 to a 10 I reckoned the arms would still be too long so I have returned it.
I also wasn't 100% sure about the dipped hem effect.

So snugly and soft!

Love this raincoat as it is soft and not at all stiff like a lot of raincoats. The fur inside on your shoulders keeps the cold rain from giving a chill. The print is just right to give a little something yet remain classic as I hope to wear this coat for years. The fitting is generous - I take an 18 in the Larissa shirts but the 16 in this coat gave me ample space including jumpers underneath. Nice to find it generous across the bust then the drawstring waist means you can pull it in a little to make it more flattering.

Plant hunter coat

I love the colour of the coat and the lining especially makes it more special. The only reason I wouldn't give the product a 100% thumbs up is because I find that the arm length is on the short side which is not normally a problem for me. Only other note is that the leather tabs on the drawstrings do not prevent the cinching from coming undone on the waistband, so perhaps they could be improved but these are just small things. Otherwise the coat is brilliant, and the postage to New Zealand exceptional - it arrived in 8 days of me placing the order! Very impressed. Thanks Seasalt.

Pefect weight and wrath

This is a great coat, it is light and very warm and truly water repellent. I took it to Paris on a just in case basis because it was so light and boy was I glad the weather turned and it kept me warm and dry. Also received compliments! In Paris, no less.

One suggestion the inner pocket at the bottom, if that is what it is, is not useful, a pocket higher up for a phone would be great.

LOVE IT..!

This coat is so very soft and I've worn it several times already in very heavy rain with excellent results.
The fit is very generous and cosy and the feel is lovely. It's now become my go-to and grab coat when popping out on errands or school runs.
Ideal coat for a lighter option to one's extra thick winter coat. Also machine washable, which is nice and easy if it gets splattered with mud on long walks.

At last I have found a mid weight coat. I have tried so many but have not found any that fitted or suited me. I have a Tiller coat which fits me well and decided to try this coat on the chance that it might fit.
I look great in it so I am just waiting to go out in it, as it arrived earlier this morning . I am also glad that it has shorter sleeves as I have short arms!!
Now I shall just have to pay for it out of my pocket money!

I bought this having tried and returned the Hellweathers coat which just did not fit my shape, and another coat from elsewhere, plus trying on endless raincoats in other shops. I am really pleased with it, it fits well, is a perfect length and is very warm. My favourite feature is the shaped hem, I love the dip at the back.

Great Coat!

I initially bought this coat in the coal colour and got it in a size 10 (I'm a size 8 but with coats I sometimes need a 10) but the coat was too big so I returned it. Unfortunately they didn't have the size 8 in stock but they later had the orca colour in size 8 and it was in the sale so I pounced on it! I love this coat it's lovely and long and it's warm and lightweight. I wanted a coat that was long, had a hood, waterproof but also stylish and this one is it! Only issue was that when it arrived one of the popper buttons was broken which was very annoying as I'd waited a long time for the coat to be available. I decided to fix it myself as I did t want to wait any longer!
Anyway other than that it's great and it's proven itself worthy of its waterproof title!

Fantastic buy

I needed a new coat for dog walking and general casual day time wear. We were also visiting Cornwall for Easter and with the weather report I needed something waterproof and with a hood. This coat is the perfect buy for all of the reasons I needed it for. It's a great fit; the sleeves are long enough; it's warm and waterproof; the double zip is brilliant for wearing in the car; the lined hood it great for keeping my ears and head warm and the length is perfect for my 5'7" height. All in all I couldn't be happier with my choice.

Already have the lighter weight Hellweathers mac and as I really like that, I thought having the colder weather equivalent was perfect. I bought it in Orca, it's a lovely blue with a denim look, the fabric is soft to the touch , the fleece lining is soft and warm. I am a size 10/12 the 10 is plenty large enough to fit a sweater under, comfortably. It's perfect!

Plant Hunter Coat's the best!

This coat's fantastic. Love the cut which is stylish and practical. It's lightweight, warm and cosy but not overly lined with plenty of room to wear a thick jumper underneath if needed. The draw string waist allows it to be shaped if wanted, and most of all to date it's kept me dry on rainy days! Add the more affordable sale price and the very wearable blue orca and you have a very happy bunny. Brilliant!

The orca blue of this coat is a gorgeous colour but note that it's not a solid colour it's got a sort of hatching detail through it which I wasnt expecting but looks really nice. Also the fabric was really soft and the fit really good, waist drawstring is a bonus. Pleased with the water repellant fabric too, it's very effective, all round a great coat which keeps you warm and dry on unpredictable rainy days.

I am a big fan of the Hellweathers Mac but needed something warmer for winter so have been waiting for this to come into the sale.
Compared to the Hellweathers it is a lot more roomy which allows for extra layers but is less flattering. It is however lovely and warm with a good hood and just what I needed for a wet, windy Edinburgh.

Fab coat!

I have been after a Seasalt coat for a year or so, and couldn't stretch to one at full price, but there was never the one I wanted in the sale. Then a couple of weeks ago I saw it on sale, in my size and bought it! I am so very glad I did.
It has been tested with the wind and rain the past few weeks, and it has passed with flying colours.
I love that the hood has a furry lining as it helps stick it to my hair a bit and stop it flying off at the slightest gust of wind.
I love the drawstring waist cords.
I love the end of the hood draw string!
I love that it is so light, yet so warm.
I love that it is true to size, so if in doubt, do go by the measurments on the website.
I also love that my recommendation to someone else on a forum lead to them trying it on and buying their very own one :)

Job done!

The need to know.... I'm a working mum of two small boys living in Yorkshire with our cold miserable weather. I'm a curvy pear shaped size 12. My sons are forever rubbing their muddy feet on my clothes so I usually arrive at work looking grubby. Wanted a coat that wasn't entirely unflattering but practical. Tried 4 coats prior to finding this one. This coat is warm and wind/waterproof. I'm 5ft 4" and it comes to my knees which is spot on for both protection from grubby progeny and keeping me warm/dry. The hood is very good at keeping my face protected and not squashing my hair too much. I can also get a fleece under this coat to layer up.
Would have liked another press stud on the wrists. And the fleece is warm but I would love it if sea salt made this in a smarter option. And finally for the fuller bust the drawstring could be 2" lower. But I'm all about compromise. Great solid jacket. Will wear a lot.

Comfortable and lightweight

Can't believe how much I just love this coat. I'm a partial wheelchair user and can get very cold when I'm not able to get up and moving, so I have to layer up. This leaves me feeling very bulky, especially when I want to stand up and walk for a while. This coat is perfect: light in weight, sleek in style, and I don't need to wear a huge sweater underneath to keep me warm. I've tried to buy Seasalt before, but the shoulders have been too narrow in my size 18, while the 20 buried me. But the Plant Hunter seems a generous fit without losing its style. Oh, and I phoned in my order, even though I'd seen the coat in the online sale, and the opportunity to talk it through helped with the process. Thank you. I'm thrilled.

Perfect

I wanted a coat that was warm, roomy, lightweight, slightly padded, wind proof, long enough to cover dresses ... And this is it! Sleeves are great! Who wants short sleeves on a raincoat? Also, someone said there should be.a protective placket under the zip on the collar. I wear one of my seasalt handy bands and it does the trick. Hood is a bit large, but u can adjust it with the cords and roll back the top slightly to show the fleece. All in all, perfect AND waterproof! I took advantage of sale discount and have no regrets.

Warm yet light coat

I really love this coat and have gotten many compliments on it. It's deceptively lightweight, yet offers terrific protection and warmth - I' had a few good walks in storm Imogen in it!

Likes: The Orca colour also feels a bit more polished since it does have a more practical feel to it. Deep pockets are great for wallets, phones, etc. My favourite feature is the cinchable waist rope which lets you wear the coat loose or a bit more fitted to your shape.

A few little quibbles- the sleeves were quite long on me and I'm of a very average build. Also, I've found the zipper to be a bit fiddly.

Really happy with this

Bought this as a birthday treat for myself. It is very light and I wasn't sure if it would be okay for the winter. But since we have had such a mild rainy winter so far, this coat has been great. It looks good, is a great length (thigh length on me) and is light but still seems warm and waterproof. Still not sure if it would be suited to an icy cold winter but I am happy to have it and it is easy to put jumpers etc underneath.

Nice but sleeves much too long :(

Waterproof and light however had to return as sleeves were ridiculously long on me. :(

I'm 5 ft 3 and ordered a size 10. It was slightly big overall but measurements say size 8 has pretty much the same length sleeves anyway.

Wish Seasalt would make a petite version or a version with ribbed cuffing on the sleeves. Or even a version which is designed to have turned up sleeves.

Even though I got in in the sale, I couldn't really justify spending £120 on a coat which really on me at least needed drastic altering, it might have ruined it. I sometimes have this issue a little but never to this extent.

Super choice

Bought this on a whim, after looking to purchase something for my daughter and then realising I needed something wind and water tight with a hood, given our inclement weather. I'm so glad I did. It is really lightweight but very cosy. Had a walk in it the other day when it was a very drizzly day and I was completely dry and warm. So glad I bought it!

Very good choice....

I had been looking for ages for a smart, comfortable stylish coat. ... Now I have found it ! I have just returned from a weekend break to the East Coast where I road tested my new coat. It was very windy and lashed it down for most of the time. But I stayed dry and warm. The fit is perfect for me ( a normal high street 12)and there is still room for a few layers if extra warmth is needed.The coal colour is great and I can add any colour accessories. Delivery service was good. My first but and not my last Sea Salt purchase. Thank you

Very happy with my warm wind proof coat!

This is a great coat! I'd highly recommend it. It does exactly what it says on the label; wind proof, waterproof and looks very chic!
....ironically bumped into the designer, Rebecca Rudman and even got her to sign it!!!

A happy daughter!

My daughter wanted a new winter coat that was warm, waterproof, light, stylish, kept her legs warm, etc. etc. …
Well she got what she wanted and was thrilled. Phew!

Perfect winter coat for British weather

I am delighted with my coat! It's warm, but not at all bulky - and with all the rain we have had recently, keeps me completely dry. I love the length, and the softest fur in the hood!

Absolutely love this coat!

It does what it says on the tin, and is like a cosy sleeping bag, warming up the longer it's worn! Love the soft fabric, and that it quickly dries after a downpour. Been put to the test lots over recent weeks, and I'm impressed! Thankyou Seasalt.

really useful coat

I like the look of this coat very much especially the colour and the cut. It is good to have a longer waterproof coat and I love the soft lining though wish it was fleece lined throughout as the quilting is not very thick. It is light and easy to pack, rolls up small. As others have said another inside pocket would be useful for keys and phone so ideally zipped. These are quibbles as it is an excellent raincoat.

Plant Hunter Coat

I'm exceedingly pleased with this coat, perfect for dog walking and smart enough for anything else. It's lightweight and warm, the hood fits well over my head for heavy rain but can easily be folded back as well. The padding in the hood keeps it in place for windy days. I also appreciate being able to machine wash it, as some waterproof coats have to be washed with special soap or not washed at all. This is my second Seasalt raincoat, the first was a lovely summer one. The customer service at Seasalt was wonderful, I wasn't sure which coat to buy and had very good advice when I phoned, plus it arrived within 2 days. Excellent purchase!

Great even if you don't like coats

I'm not a coat person, I always feel so bulked up and restricted in them but not in this one. Lovely and light but surprisingly warm and very soft. I tend to only wear skirts and dresses and this is perfect with both compared to jackets which are just too short to keep you warm and dry.

It was my first ever Seasalt purchase and with 20% off I was delighted

This has just replaced my old favourite coat & I'm really pleased. Have been looking for a while. Great length & not too bulky like so many. Good fit with room to wear a chunky jumper underneath too. Well done Seasalt!

Cuddle soft!

I am delighted with this coat. Not only does it look stylish but it's so comfortable to wear. Very lightweight, but when you put it on it feels like a lovely cuddle! It is a generous size so I was able to easily wear two layers including a chunky sweater underneath. I choose size 16 which fitted my ample bosom. Perfect for out walking. I live by the sea in Hastings and any winter coat has to be warm and waterproof. This fits the bill

Just right...

Flew to Edinburgh for the first really freezing weekend of the year, and this was the perfect coat to take. Warm as toast but LIGHT for travelling. I work outside a lot and have been looking for a warm waterproof with nice details in a decent colour. Just missed out on £20 quid off...but that's life...I think it will pay for itself in no time.

Excellent coat

I'm very pleased with my coat. I wanted a warm (but not TOO warm) wind proof, & waterproof coat to wear on long walks.

Having worn it in absolute pouring rain, I can confirm that it's totally waterproof, and kept me - & my phone - perfectly dry.

I also love the soft lining, the hood that stays up in strong winds, the two-way zip & the adjustable cuffs.

My only criticism is that it just doesn't have enough pockets. Just two - & an inside one which is unusable unless you like continually be slapped on the leg by your phone/MP3 player. And no hand warmer pockets. This is true of many women's coats - perhaps we're all to supposed carry a handbag everywhere we go. My bloke has an equivalent men's coat which has: 4 outside patch pockets, 2 hand warmer pockets, 2 slip pockets (behind the lower 2 patch pockets), an inside breast pocket, and a concealed zip inside breast pocket.

So go on Seasalt, put more useful pockets on your next version.

Meanwhile, I still love my almost perfect coat.

Proper Job

Yes, as they say in Somerset, this really is a Proper Job! I wanted a warm, slightly longer waterproof and this really fits the bill. I had considered getting a Janelle coat, but having done some measurements realised it might be too long for me - the Plant Hunter is perfect - I'm about 5'1 ish. I love the material, lightweight and soft and the lining really is warm and cosy. Have only just been able to wear it due to the mild weather recently, definitely wind proof, have not yet tested it in a squally shower, but I'm sure it won't disappoint. Like my other Seasalt buys, good quality and more than fit for purpose.

Just what needed

Living in Scotland, where the cold rain is omnipresent, this coat is definitively required; the length of the sleeves (I'm 1.60m tall) are good as it protects well the sleeves underneath and the fleece inside the hood is warm & soft; the breathable fabric makes it perfect for brisk walks with the dogs & the daily school runs and the unusual Coal color is nice "for a change"and adequate for active walks! The customer service was extremely helpful in order to help me choosing the appropriated garment for my requirements. I have already recommended this brand to "mums at the school's gates"!

Ideal

As stated ..good for wind and rain... even here in Scotland. With a down gilet underneath it also beats the colder weather. Although I prefer lighter colours the 'coal' is a nice change and goes with everything. The fit is true to size but also allows for winter layers. I recommend this coat.

Lightweight like a Russian goose down duvet yet super warm and cosy with the fluffy lining. Worn in the rain for the first time kept me totally dry and not sweaty as it's breathable. Beautifully finished with chunky poppers etc highly highly recommend well worth the cost.

Perfect for dog walking in the rain

Lovely coat - light, comfortable, and completely waterproof, even on seams. Nice enough to wear on rainy days in town, and equally perfect for my 2 dog walks a day. Initially got the 14 as I wanted room for sweaters underneath, but then changed it for a 12, which is great.

Just what I needed

This is the perfect coat for me. After looking high and low for coats in the US, I finally found what I wanted - a waterproof winter coat that is not too heavy, but yet warm enough for those cold days for wherever I travel. Feels like a warm hug. I love the length of it and I am 5'2''. I normally wear a size 10 US, so the 14 worked. I got it in the color "Coal". It goes with anything, but I would love a brighter color. I will look out for new colors in the future. Shipping was fast, considering where I am.

Thank you!

Brilliant !

This coat is beautifully made. The lining is very warm and cosy The hood actually fits properly so you don't have to hold it in place. I do think some sort of warmer lining would've been a bonus in the pockets. It does what it says on the label . I think it's a great buy.

Good and bad

Good on style a d wearability. However two things bug me. The thin lining in the pocket. A thicken or wooly one side would be better than the thin fabric next to the body. Cold on the hands. The biggest problem I have is with the zip. You need a scarf or cowl to protect neck and chin. Very uncomforable without. The design team should think about placing zip on to placket or fabric extension so zip does not touch skin. Most other coats of this type/price ptotect skin. Sorry am only giving you 4 stars because of this.

sorry not for me

I was very disappointed in the quality of the fabric used for this coat - the outer fabric felt thin and flimsy and did not hang well and I thought the inner fleece looked , a bit like a cheap dressing gown. This is the second item I have purchased from Seasalt, last year I bought a Janelle coat, but again was disappointed and sent it back. I will stick with my ancient Stadium Squall for now until I find something of similar quality

Raincoat

This is the first item I have purchased online from Seasalt, so I was a little apprehensive re. sizing. Being slightly vertically challenged (5ft) the coat is very long but at least my legs won't get wet! The adjustable cuffs are perfect for a shorter arm although I would have liked them to do up a little tighter. I choose the Orca colour which looks great. Overall I am really pleased with my new coat and am sure I will get lots of wear out of it.

So Soft

Lovely lightweight mac ideal for walking the dog as I don't feel to constricted in it. The only problem I found the sleeves to be too long as I am only 5 foot 1 inch and the tab did not make the cuff tight enough to bring the sleeve off of my hands. Please Seasalt think of us little ladies with shorter arms. I telephoned Seasalt and I was sent some more poppers and told to take it to a shoe repairer to have fitted but they did not have the exact size tool.so I still have a long sleeved mac which is rather disappointing.If this could have been don e I would have given the Mac 5 stars.

Plant Hunter Coat

I have the Hellweathers mac so knew what to expect re fit and quality for this cooler weather version. As some reviewers have mentioned it may not be warm enough for very cold temperatures but it is roomy so layers can be worn underneath. I am a size 10 but both my macs are plenty big enough in an 8.The fleece and quilted lower lining give it a cosy feel.I personally get quite hot walking in a down coat so something a bit lighter with rain protection is welcome. I kept to the same colour that I have for my Hellweathers, Orca, as it goes well with jeans or black trousers, not being a true navy blue. Now just waiting for the colder weather to try it out!

Fab autumn coat

I bought this coat a few months ago and so there have only been a few chilly mornings and evenings to test it for warmth. It is just right for cooler temperatures before the weather gets so cold that my less flattering heavy duty padded coat can be worn.
I'm really pleased with the length as most coats are too short or if they are long enough and allow for hips and thighs don't have a hood.
I was able to get the muted teal colour and its really beautiful and lovely material. The lining is lovely soft fleece but not thick enough for very low temperatures.

HUGE and rather shapeless...

I wanted a lightweight waterproof warm coat for the winter so I thought I would try the Planet Hunter. The coat looks like it is well made but it is huge! I have a size 12 bust so ordered a 12. It was so big that I ordered a 10 and it was still too big and shapeless that I am having to return it. I really wanted the Janelle coat but as I am only 5'2" I think it will be too long for me. Please can you make a Janelle coat for shorter ladies!

Coats for plant hunters

Seasalt seem to have established themselves as the purveyor of proper waterproof coats for girls so that we no longer have to struggle under the weight of a DryasaBone. I am pleased with the length of the coat - most are too short - and the price is great compared to a Barbour. The coat feels as though it will be cosy in the winter - I spend a lot of time standing around on sites and I feel this will keep me warm. It's not just a fashion statement - although I like the way it looks - it really will do the job.

Attractive casual coat

Nice muted turquoise colour, matte finish [not bright or shiny as photo suggested] and more flattering than black for older person like me.
Lightweight, early trial this week indicates that it is warm in this chilly late August. I am not yet convinced that it is a winter weight coat as the publicity suggests - lower half is thinner than a similar M&S padded anorak. The fleece is definitely cosy but I am not yet sure how warm the lightweight quilting in the lower half will be in cold weather.

Very pleased with this coat. I am a size 16-18 5'2" and the 16 fits snugly but with room to move arms.Agree that the sleeves are long (down to middle of fingers) but good for cold wet weather. Slightly padded look but this is also due to the quilting inside. It is very light and warm and love the fish tail at the back. Excellent value in the sale in Peacock which is a lovely colour.Looking forward to testing it on cold wet and windy beaches!

I love this coat: its SO light, yet snug and warm, draughtproof and rainproof. It is a good length, I am 5'3" and it comes just below my knees at the front, and well below my knees at the back, so very practical, especially if you are wearing wellies. The girth-size was good (I'm a 10, bought a 10) for a couple of lightish layers underneath: T-shirt and light wool jumper. definitely dont need a thick layer. 2 roomy front pockets are good, but it is missing a small inside pocket for phone/ipod (the very insecure one near the hem wont work)

Great coat

This is a great coat. It allows for my hugely long arms. It is very nice to wear, being soft and cosy inside. I've tested it in driving drizzle and it was completely impervious, drying out nicely afterwards. It would have had a score of five if it had had a better positioned internal pocket, and if the pocket had been accessible when the zip is fastened. Being low down means that it flaps a bit when loaded up with a mobile. The hood fits nicely.

Super find!

I bought this in a last minute panic for a trip to the Pyrenées in view of the dire weather forecast. The coat arrived within 24hours even though I had only requested 1st class post and it was well packed. After 10 days of regular testing in wet and windy weather I can say it is truly waterproof! It is also very warm and comfortable . The teal colour and design detail make this coat stylish enough to wear into town as well as in the country.

Great Coat

I had been looking for a replacement for my stalwart washable waterproof Barbour of many-a-year with no success. The coat needed to be long enough to cover my nether regions but not dwarf my 5ft 2inch frame, be windproof, waterproof, cozy and suitable for driving and long walks. (The horrendous winter of 2010 still in my mind).

I had seen SeaSalt catalogues and searched on line but had no real idea of these coats and also their sizing until I tried on a Hell Weather Mac in John Lewis, loved it (and the Orca blue colour) and bought it. I decided to buy the winter equivalent Plant Hunter Coat on line.

Ordering was easy and it arrived well packed in good time. My surprise was how light this coat is! It is delightfully warm and cozy to wear, the hood allows me to hide away from the wind and sleet we have had recently and it does not restrict my movement when out walking or driving. I am a size 10. The Hell Weather Mac is a neater fit than the Plant Hunter which is more of a bulky fit but both are ok. The arm length is good on me on both coats down to just above my thumb joint which gives good cover over my gloves- which is great for wet weather!

I love the detail on this coat- the fishtail and the buttons. The quality is as good as Barbour. The coal is more a dark grey than a black - I would have preferred darker. I am delighted with my purchase and would highly recommend this coat and SeaSalt.

only for drop and collect from school,for casual occasions!

I decided to go for this coat to drop & collect my child to school every morning and afternooon in cold and rainy days in Central London.(1)Fast delivery-i received in2days after i ordered online! (2)Size12-i am 167cm,58kg weight,34C chest.just good size for my wide shoulders,long arms,length just above my knees.but i still wish the sleeves can be more longer for a colder or heavy rain day. Unfortunately the shape around my body, chest,waist,hip make me looks Fat/Big as there is too much room left.i tried to squeezed with both slings but still could not make a natural slim or sexy or curvy shape,maybe its just too plain shaped design for my taste.(3)Hood-just come until my forhead,need to let my long hair down to cover my whole head,if i did ponytail at the high position,it does not really reach my forhead unfortunately. otherwise im happy with what i get for now,this coat is for very casua occasionl,not smart or sexy to go to posh restaurant for a lunch or visiting my husband s office in city.

Peacock is lovely

The coat and colour is beautiful but I cannot get the packing creases to drop out of it which is what spoils it a bit for me . I checked the washing label and it says do not iron so I am afraid to touch it with the iron in case it damages the waterproofing.

Plant hunter mac

Sooo glad I decided to treat myself to this gorgeous peacock shade mac. Know we are now in spring but @sale price couldn't resist as I know will certainly get great wear of this in autumn/ winter. Mac is very light on but so cosy. I am only 5 ft so it is knee length on me which is great & with adjustable poppers on cuffs sleeves are not too long. Very quick delivery as always.Loved spotty delivery bag then the stylish boats but not inspired with plain white bag! Can do better Seasalt?

Brilliant coat

Coat has kept me warm and dry during a very wet and windy week in Wales, including walking for 1.5 hours one day in non-stop heavy rain! My only suggestion for improvement would be to consider the position of the phone pocket currently near to the hem of the coat. It doesn't feel completely secure as there is no fastening and it's difficult to get your phone out quickly when the coat is fastened. This is only a minor quibble though and I'd thoroughly recommend the coat. Go on, you know you want it!

Brilliant coat - shame I'm only 5' 1"

What a really well-made & fabulous coat. Just what I'd been wanting. Such a shame that I'm a shortie and so the sleeves were far too long. If they'd had an elasticated cuff it would have been much better. So disappointed as turning up sleeve totally spoilt overall appearance. Had to return it as, on me, it didn't do it justice.
Excellent coat. Please consider elasticated cuffs seasalt.

The rain won't stop me now

I didn't have to wait long to put this coat to the test. The day after it arrived (super fast delivery by the way) I went for a country walk in the wind and rain. The Plant Hunter Coat lived up to its reputation and kept me warm and dry whilst feeling totally comfortable. The lovely soft and cosy hood stayed up even when facing into the wind! I am an average size 12 and found this size to be perfect with the right amount of room for movement.

I LOVE this coat

I can't usually be bothered writing reviews.. but, this coat is soooo worth the investment and I am so delighted with it, that I had to. It falls below the knee to my wellies, is totally wind and rain proof, the hood is so snuggly I don't need a hat, I just pop the hood up when necessary. It's what I've needed for years, dog-walking in all weathers. It's lightweight and comfy with good deep zipped pockets. Previous coats are never long enough, leaving thighs and knees cold/wet. I'm 5'8. A well designed good quality coat. Thank-you Seasalt!

Just what I have been looking for - lightweight, warm and waterproof. Also big enough to wear a chunky jumper if needed. I live on an island and we have plenty of good testing weather. You are such a nice firm to deal with. Although the price was highish it was well worth it - you get what you pay for! Thank you

Love this coat

I thought this coat was on the pricey side but it really is worth every penny. It is very versatile and is equally suited to quite formal occasions at work and walking the dog. I have had a lot of use already and it is light enough for the spring and even chilly or wet summer days. I sized up - from 12 to 14 - so that I can wear a jumper or gilet underneath and that worked well for me. A 12 would have fitted too I think as it's quite generous. Just buy it!

Warm, dry and cosy!

My daughter has a Jonelle coat in size 10. I tried that on but it was too tight. I've been looking for a useful but stylish coat for cold, wet and windy conditions so visited my local Seasalt shop. I tried on the Jonelle in size 12 but at 5ft 3ins it looked too long. I bought the Plan Hunter coat in a 12 but when I took it home decided it was too big so changed to a 10. I can still get a thick jumper on underneath. I love the coat, especially the hood which stays on without obliterating my view; and the two way zip. For me the sleeves are too long and an extra fastener would make it possible to secure them better around my wrists so they wouldn't come down so far and they'd be more snug in bad weather. The only major design fault for me is not having a secure, easily accessible pocket in the upper body, eg next to the zip, in which to keep my mobile phone and maybe a credit card. My other walking coats have this feature and I really miss it. My friend was so impressed with my coat she instantly bought a similar one to mine!!

Great coat but...

I love everything about this coat, it's a great colour, fits true to size, it's warm yet lightweight and goes with everything -however after a few months of wearing it all of the poppers have come off the back. I' m not particularly hard going on my clothes but the poppers seem to catch when you stand up from sitting on a bench for example. When the first one came off the staff at Seasalt helpfully sent me replacement poppers but I can't find anyone with the machine to replace them. I still wear the coat but am disappointed as it has lost its ability to look good with smarter clothes. If it weren't for this problem I would definitely give it 5/5.

Love this coat

I love this coat it is warm due to the partial fleece lining. It is quite long for me i'm only 5'2 so comes to just above my knees. I love the hood that stays in place and the adjustable sleeves so no nasty breeze up your sleeve. If you like your coat slightly big to fit an extra layer then order your true size if not try a size down but the waist does adjust so may not need to.

Love this coat!

I've been looking for a smart, but casual waterproof coat for ages and this coat fits the bill. It's light, but extremely warm and I've worn it almost every day since I bought it. The length is ideal as it sits on the knee and I can wear a dress or skirt without them showing below the hemline, which is usually the case with waterproof outerwear - most are usually mid-thigh length. Really pleased! Thanks so much.

Rainy day love.

I have found the ultimate coat. A coat that loves all weathers and can go from wet and muddy woodland to looking smart on the streets of the city. I spent a long time choosing which Seasalt coat to get but have definitely made the right choice here. The size (I am an 8) is just a little bigger but allows for a chunky jumper underneath. The length is also perfect and as I am short it falls nicely by my knees. I have road tested it up on the blustery Beachy Head and it really is windproof and I have yet to feel wet in a downpour. Its also incredibly lightweight and packs to nothing if you are travelling. Love my Plant Hunter!

Just the job

Bought this at the new Woodbridge store which is great. Although the shop is 30 miles away I will be back! Thought the coat a bit pricey, but has proved its worth for warmth, whilst being light. Perfect for dog walking in all weathers-wind,rain and frost, and nice enough in colour and style not to need changing after the dog walk! It is just what I was looking for

Gorgeous coat

I simply adore this coat, and since buying it in November haven't worn any other coat. It's great for work, standing on cold platforms and construction sites, and looks fab with jeans. It's warm, light and stylish. Can't recommend it enough. I am usually a 10 in Seasalt clothes but bought the 12 in this as 10 would have felt too close fitting with winter clothes and for driving.

Brilliant

I already have a seaside mac whic I love but wanted something that was warm and waterproof for the winter. This coat fits the bill perfectly. I walked all the way round the city walls of Chester in pouring rain and it kept me completely dry and nice and warm. The furry hood is really cosy and doesn't slip off your head like some hoods do. The sizing is generous and I maybe could have gone smaller but it still looks fine. My only tiny complaint is that the zip can be a bit fiddly if you don't absolutely perfectly line up the top and bottom zip pulls. One one occasion it took 5 attempts but I'm getting used to it.

Beach Comber Essential

This coat is fantastic! Beach tested and weather battered, it stepped up to the challenge brilliantly. As I am only 5ft 2 this coat is below my knee which is perfect. Generous sizing allows for layers underneath. If like me you don't want bad weather to stand in the way of adventures,do yourself a favour and buy this. Thank you SeaSalt, another fantastic product.

Plant Hunter Coat

Dear SeaSalt

I did not like the colour of this coat, I'm going to try for the Northstar coat which I had before in white, I'm hoping the black coat will get as many comments as it did in the white, but I'm very disappointed that I won't be receiving the free posting, it's not my fault that I didn't like the other coat. That has put me of slightly trying for the Nothstar coat.

Versatile and good looking

I was very keen to find a 'parka' that I could wear with smarter clothes (sleek not bulky), and that was both warm and waterproof. I am delighted with this one! The non-shiny fabric especially lifts it from looking like a 'raincoat'; the charcoal grey is chic and neutral; I love the dipped down hem in the back; and it is warm whilst also being lightweight. Definitely worth the investment.

The search is over

I love this coat. I think it fits true to size. I am an 8-10 and the 10 fits well with room for thick jumpers or several thinner layers. It takes me from dog walking in the park to work no problem. The fleece lining is very cosy, the hood is a shape that stays on my head and the sleeves are the perfect length. The finish of 'Coal' is more interesting and smarter than your average green parka. I will buy more from Seasalt, very impressed with service and delivery options.

Lovely but short sleeves!

Similarly to SG, I found the sleeves to just be too short and snug on this design. If there was a cuffed section inside them, that would definitely help the length issue! As it is, there's a gap between the top of my gloves and the end of the sleeve... I also found the armhole to be a bit snug when layers worn underneath (I tried a size up too, with no luck!). Otherwise the coat is really lovely and lightweight. Postage costs are definitely a huge problem - with items of this value, I would expect a complimentary returns service.

great coat

Interesting reading the previous review as I am 5 ft 11 and it fits great, I do usually buy a bigger size to accommodate my height so all well. sleeves are a perfect length. Really comfortable to wear and already been tested in bad weather! One small criticism, I feel the pockets are to small, I like to take dog treats and poo bags, purse and phone tissues etc so would be lovely to have inner patch pocket for valuable items.

Not Breathable

Whilst I love the look of this coat, it's just not breathable. I end up getting hot and sweaty where the fleece lining is even on cold days. I'm not a naturally hot person (I'm usually cold!) and have never had this problem with another coat. I'm really disappointed with it and would strongly recommend buying the non fleecy version instead.

Comments:

Dear SK,
Thank you very much for your review and I'm sorry to hear that the Plant Hunter has been a bit warm for you. Our technical fabric is breathable, but if you get very hot it's possible that there could be a build up of moisture. The Hellweather might be better for you as it is unlined so that you could layer as appropriate underneath.
If you'd like any further assistance our Customer Service team will be more than happy to assist, don't hesitate to call or e-mail them.
Best wishes,
Seasalt

Sleeves too short

Lovely coat, was looking forward to wearing it but the sleeves are too short for me and the waist too high. I'm just over 5'9 so this coat is not designed for tall people.
Am disappointed in all the postage costs I am now having to incur. I did try to buy locally but the shops had sold out.
Doubt will buy Seasalt again as I prefer to try items rather than risk having to send them back

So, it was time to treat myself to a new dog walking coat.i love this coat so much that I'm wearing it for best. It's cozy yet light and I love the colour.

Love it! Went for the peacock colour. Great length for dog walking. Lovely And cosy but very light. Pockets big enough for poo bags, treats etc. The only problem is I like it so much I am wearing it everywhere. Went for size 10 as I had read other reviews and paid attention to the actual cost measurements given.

Happy

Comfortable coat, light weight and room for winter woollies underneath (as it's not a bulky padded coat). Does not feel like a waterproof fabric but so far I've stayed dry! Good length too for warmth and keeping legs dry. Difficult to decide which colour but chose coal in the end as it will go with everything. Smart but casual, as they say.

Waterproof cosy coat

This is a very good buy - generously sized so you can get lots of layers underneath. It looks much longer on me than on the model but then everything does!
We are in France this week and there has been torrential rain - the coat didn't let a drop through and dries very quickly once you get out of the rain.
All in all, I am very pleased with it.

I can't find anything bad about this coat. It fits perfectly. I'm normally a size 10 and that's the size I bought. I can fit a jumper underneath without it being too tight. The fleecy lining is very soft and cosy, like a hug in a coat! It's definitely waterproof because I tried it out in the Yorkshire rain! Perfect.

95% perfect

I wanted a coat to walk the dog in all weathers, this was also a treat for me. Not my normal style or indeed colour, (i chose coal) I ordered size 18 but whoop whoop it was huge on me I exchanged in store for a size 16 which is perfect. I test drove the coast on a harsh morning up St Agnes Beacon and I love it its windproof as described and rain proof apart from the cuffs were to loose and could have done with another button as the rain found its way in. I would also prefer to have had a bit of padding to the outside of the pockets for toastie fingers. I walk the dog in all conditions and this coat is dark, I would love to see a pocket with a flouro band in that you can whip out when you need to be seen. Just a thought. Well in essence its that gorgous that I will give it 5 stars because the noggles do nt make for 4 stars.

Sizes are very large

I also had a lot of trouble with this coat. I had bought a size 14 and it was far to big. Luckily I returned it and got a refund. I am a size 16 in a Northstar. Eventually I found that a size 12 was a good fit and found one in my local shop. It still has room for a jumper. IT IS VERY CONFUSING THE SIZING WHEN ONE HAS GOT TO RETURN ALL THE TIME AND THAT COSTS MONEY.

Too big!

I thought this was a lovely coat .. I bought it because it says it is the winter version of the hellweathers mac - I bought the same size but it is ABSOLUTELY HUGE! which is a little annoying as I thought I was safe to buy the same size as the hellweather's coat which fits perfectly - now I am probably looking at a very expensive return, and I am not sure about doing an exchange in case I need to pay to return it again!

Dear Pip

Thank you for your review on the Plant Hunter Coat. Even though it is a version of our Hellweathers Mac the Plant Hunter has been designed to be a winter coat, and its measurements allow for winter clothing to be worn underneath. All our garments have individual measurement charts within their description to help with sizing, and our team at customer services is always on hand to answer any queries. We also recommend Collect+ within our returns section which we find can bring the return cost down.
Best wishes,
Seasalt

The best coat EVER!

This coat was recommended to me by a friend – I needed something waterproof and long enough to cover my work clothes on the walk to and from work. This coat is amazing! It’s knee length (I am 5ft 4) and keeps me warm and snug on my 30 minute walk. Hood is fantastic – not too sweaty and stays up. This coat is much nicer than the photos and I have had lots of good comments from friends etc. I was worried it would be a little frumpy and look like all the other unstylish waterproof coats out there, but the fabric is lovely and not “plastic” at all and the parka style and finish is good and looks very expensive. If in doubt, buy it – once you try this coat on you will never return it!

Plant Hunter Coat

Love this coat! As with other reviews on the generous side but allows for winter woolies. Still waiting for the rain do can't comment on its waterproof claim. Have had many compliments from people after this coat. So keeping a firm hold on it.

Plant Hunter Coat

I was really excited to receive this coat as I've bought many things from Seasalt, all of which have been great. The peacock coat is a lovely colour and everything about it was great except the sleeves are too short. I bought a size 14 which fitted well everywhere with enough room for a jumper underneath, but I've had to return it because of the sleeves. Very disappointed and also a little fed up at having to pay £11 to return the coat. It's worth adding that my arms are not unusually long. All in all pretty fed up as I'll now have to find another coat and it's doubtful I'll find anything as lovely.

Hi Vicky,

Thanks for your review of the Plant Hunter Coat. I am so sorry to hear that the sleeve length was not long enough for you. We do make sure that all feedback is passed on and taken into consideration for future seasons. We do appreciate that returning items can sometimes be costly and we do offer a collect plus returns option that is a set price and may work out more cost effective. At present we are unable as a company to offer free returns but we do take all comments on board. Best Wishes from all at Seasalt.

plant hunter coat

Echoing Lady of the Shires just right except for Wales read nort coast of Scotland! I'd have preferred it with a detachable hood, especially as it's so big with no volumiser at the back and I also wish that the soft teddy lining extended to the chin so that the cold metal zip didn't touch my face... Having said that I'm looking forward to wearing it on the boat to Orkney this weekend!

Fantastic all-weather coat

Beautifully made coat - real attention to detail throughout and amazing quality for the price. Lovely dark grey colour and the fleecy lining is super soft and snug. I love the little nautical touches - the anchor details on buttons, the knots on the tie pulls.

Usually a size 10 and the 10 fit well with space for layers underneath. The waist synch is great for adding a bit of shape to the coat.

First purchase from Seasalt and really impressed. Very quick delivery and super easy ordering process.

Love it

This is an absolutely lovely cosy coat that keeps you warm and dry. Only improvements would be to use a less clunky zip, put furry fabric in the pockets and move the daft phone pocket further up.
Other than that..it's perfect

My second review on this product

Having tried this on several times in a size 14, I phoned up customer services today and they suggested that I return the coat as the 14 is really too loose. I went to my local shop that sell Seasalt and tried one in a 12 and that was fine. SO THERE IS A PROBLEM .WITH THE SEASALT SIZING AS I AM A 16 IN A KELLIFRAY & NORTHSTAR COAT AND THEY FIT REALLY WELL. Pease would you take note of this for the future as it is very frustrating having to send everything back.

tall order

What a tall order! I wanted a coat that was waterproof and windproof to cope with the worst Welsh winter weather whilst out walking our dogs. It also had to be stylish enough to wear into town when occasion demanded, bright to cheer up dull, grey days and practical with pockets for doggy paraphanalia - oh, and knee-length on a shorter lady (me) without looking like a jacket for a taller person. A tall order? No. I've finally found the garment that ticks all these boxes and the peacock plant hunter coat was put through its paces today keeping me toasty and dry in the first of the wet winter blasts. Highly recommended.

Perfect

Love this coat so much! It is so cosy yet light and unbulky aswell. Great for dog walking and looking fashionable too. Very happy with it. Roll on wind and rain.

hmmmmm cosy

I can't fault the product, but I wish I hadn't needed to wear it as soon as it arrived. I am usually a generous size 16 sometimes 18 on top so ordered size 18 to allow room for layers. It's really big! Could possibly have got away with a 14. Apart from that it is gorgeous! Warm fluffy dry. The long tail means sitting on a wet bench is not a problem, the deep pockets means I can easily carry drinks and a snack for two hungry 6yr olds to have when I collect from the school gate. The hood is generous and actually covers my whole head! And the dog thinks it'sfab as we no longer have to wait for the rain to stop before going for a walk!

Very attractive Coat & colour

Have decided to keep this coat as it is very well made and a lovely colour Peacock!

Have not worn it yet and not tested in the rain but I am sure it will be great, as Seasalt usually are.

My new coat, ooh.

I bought this coat for my wife as part of a 30th anniversary thing. The only niggle is that it's too short as her legs got wet ,but as the rain was really heavy and the rest of her was bone dry and warm, it was her own fault for not wearing waterproof trousers. She likes the colour as well so ,all in all, a good buy.

Very useful coat

Have worn once since purchasing and that was during the recent storms. Felt very protected: warm, dry and snuggly.
I am a small framed size 10 and the size 8 is roomy but a nice fit. Size 10 would have been too large. The coal colour is perfect, not too dark and goes with anything.

A "must buy" coat!

This coat is so lovely and warm, without the bulk of some other warm coats. It is an expensive item, but well worth the money if you want a warm and cosy coat...it's like being snuggled into a duvet!
I've kept to my normal Seasalt size and feel comfortable in it, even when wearing slightly thicker jumpers underneath. Lovely bright Peacock colour too!

Peacock in Plant Hunter

Very impressed with the lovely lightweight cosy coat and its swift arrival. I have wanted a new winter waterproof for some time & was thrilled to find the peacock colour which is one of my favourites. I would have checked the proofing if the forecast for today had been accurate.

lovely coat!

This is everything other reviewers have said- and the colour is great- so good to have a winter raincoat that's not black or brown!

Lovely coat

This is the perfect winter coat. It is really lightweight and warm and I love the length. I also like the fact that it is smart enough for work whilst still being the ideal coat for winter beach walking. I bought the Coal version and it goes with everything. I found I didn't need to size up - it is still roomy and comfortable with thick jumpers and cardigans..

Fab rain coat

Lovely light but warm raincoat. Really pleased with it and have already had comments wearing it - so much so that my colleague is going to treat herself to one!! I would recommend to anyone.

Love it!

So glad I went for this coat. It's so comfortable especially with the so soft fleecy hood, I've hardly been out of it! Got caught in a heavy shower and the rain just ran off & I was bone dry. The length is great and the hood stays on, just what I need when it's chucking it down on the school run. Thank you Seasalt for making such a fantastic coat, my fav coat ever!

I knew I would love it

I first saw this coat in Winter 2013 and it had sold out in all sizes. I put a reminder in my mobile and was delighted when new stock came in. I had the charcoal which will make a great background colour for scarves etc. Yes its a bit on the pricey side, but practical in a very cool way, warm and cuddly, true to size and leaves enough room to wear a polo underneath if you really have to up the anti. The hood is generous and when we recently had a day long downpour, easily coped and I remained completely dry. I was surprised at how lightweight it is so really can't wait for autumn and winter to get going. Bring it on!

Great coat hoping it is fully waterproof

Lovely coat , great charcoal colour and warm without being too thick and bulky. Love the drawstring adjustment and longer length. Have had loads of compliments. I did get a little damp in my first rainstorm so am just hoping that it is as rainproof as the marketing says!

Cosy

Vey comfortable and cosy. Lightweight and seems to be waterproof, tho haven't had it long enough to really test it out.

I should have got a size smaller, as it is very roomy, but decided to keep it in case I needed to add more sweaters in the winter...

I hadn't realised how expensive postage can be as I ordered two styles to compare and returned the other style. I will be more aware of that in the future.

Too early to comment on resilience, and longevity. I hope it lasts for ages. On the whole pleased with my purchase. Thanks.

Great

Wanted a longer length waterproof coat and this fits the bill perfectly. Lovely and warm but not big and bulky. Ordered a size bigger as usually need to accommodate bulky jumpers etc but had to change for my usual size so keep to that would be my advice. Originally ordered in Coal but colour did nothing for me, changed to peacock which looks great . Looking forward to the wet and windy weather!!

Just right

What a great coat. After umming and ahhing for a while about whether to fork out for one of your macs and whether to buy Plant Hunter or Hellweathers, I finally took the plunge. The Peacock colour is lovely - not as strident as it appeared on my screen - subtle and nicely matte. It is warm but also very lightweight. Last week it was cold and raining all day and I was really enjoying walking around in my coat keeping dry. The hood doesn't fall down and the top lining is really snuggly. The finish is top notch. The weather has just warmed up again and I'm actually looking forward to some cooler weather so I can play out in my coat again. Despite the lining it doesn't look bulky and looks quite edgy with its dipped and vented back. Love it!

perfect autumn coat

The perfect coat for a wet chilly autumn . Just the right amount of padding to keep out the chill and waterproof without looking like a raincoat . The hood stays up and I love the soft cuddly fleece lining . I ordered coal although tempted by Peacock . I avoid black near my face but coal is a great alternative . At the advice of the helpful lady who took my order I got a size 12 when I am often a 14 in less generous makes , the fit is just right not to bulky but I can fit a medium weight jumper under . I love the right clothing for the unpredictable weather and Plant hunter is definitely right for the cold and wet.

Fantastic coat, very lightweight but extremely warm. I love the knee length and coal colour! I'm really hoping for some proper winter weather now to test it properly

Nice But

NIce coat and so pleased NOT to have navy stripes showing in the hood, just too warm for my purpose so I returned it.PLease more of these subdued colours [mine was 'coal' a lovely grainy dark charcoal] that go with everything.Even so the lining was the inevitable 'navy' like most of your coats ,Why not matching the outside?

Beautiful coat

I am delighted with this coat, which arrived this morning. I ordered a size up, but I would say that the coat is absolutely true to size, so it's a little big but that's perfect with winter coming up.

The coat is incredibly light weight, soft, beautifully lined and nice and long. I am tall, but the sleeves are plenty long enough.

I expected this coat to be nice, but it has far exceeded my expectations. It is perfect for the cold, windy wet days we are currently experiencing!
