Lovely fabric

Purchased online to try as obviously no stores open at the moment. The fabric and the colour (blue grey) are great. It's a generous fit and as others have noted the wrists are loose. The length measurement is for the front of the jacket and it has quite a longer tail at the back which looked a bit funny on me (165cm tall - perhaps the petite might have suited me better). Returned as it wasn't quite what I was after but otherwise seemed to be a great looking coat.

Hi Karina
Thank you for reviewing the Seafaring Coat. We're sorry to hear that it wasn't perfect for you this time and of course we'll arrange a 'no quibble' refund for you.
We've got some beautiful coats in our new collection. The Islander Coat might just be perfect so do take a look...
Best wishes

Perfect Coat!

I am truly delighted with this coat which I purchased for dog walking to withstand the frequent heavy showers in the West Country (that's why it's so green here...!). The butterscotch colour is lovely, fit is perfect (I wondered whether 12 would allow for jumper underneath but decided to go with Seasalt's analysis of my size/weight/age.. ! Above everything else I love the hood - it is really roomy and the 'brim' is almost like a sou'wester hat so should keep the rain off my face - I'm actually looking forward to the next shower of rain to try it out!

Great shape for the bottom heavy

I took a punt on this as Seasalt coats don't usually fit me as I am very bottom heavy and their coats tend to the straight up and down, but this coat is more A-line and although it is still a little larger than I would like at the top, it is much better than any other I have found. I am 5'4" and bought petite, which I am glad I did as it fits well - I am short waisted and don't have long arms so the proportions work on me although I am slightly taller than the petite height range.

I bought the butterscotch and although it wouldn't have been my choice if there had been more choice I am very pleased with the colour which is rich and warm and actually works with many other colours.

The fabric is gorgeous - soft and cool - it did arrive with creases, but most have dropped out and I like the linen look. Also, I hate to wear polyester or other 'plastic' fibres as they turn a summer raincoat into a sauna. I haven't worn it in heavy rain yet, but am trusting the Seasalt claim that it is waterproof as this is important to me as I have bought it so that I can walk whether it's raining or not. (I have worn it in light rain.)

Absolutely love this!

I am size 24 and have been looking for the perfect summer jacket for a year or two but everything so frumpy and dowdy in my size. So thank you Seasalt for a stylish, functional, long jacket in a larger size.

It's very hard to find a good coat with a hood that's also machine washable. This lovely coat ticks all tge boxes, and it offers reliable waterproofing. Thank you Seasalt.

I am very happy with my new rain jacket. I bought petite and the sleeves fit! The material is soft and I love the fishtail. Not worn yet as still too cold up in Scotland but look forward to doing so.

Fantastic fit and great length

I bought this coat in the Rosevean Light Night colour, and I love how it fits me well and the length of the coat and the length of the sleeves are the right size for me. I'm 5'1" and I bought the petite fit. This is my third Seasalt coat, and every one has been fantastic at keeping me dry with the amount of rain I experience living in Scotland.

Love this coat!

So stylish! Love the shape of this coat, especially the length, that helps keep legs and bottom dry!!! I also really like the drawstrings for tightening the hood around my face. So many other raincoats have very complicated designs for this function that I can never figure out, especially when it is pouring with rain. I am inspired to delve deeper into Seasalt's catalogue!

Not for me

Love the style, length and colour. But the coat was badly creased and even after hanging they didn't drop out probably due to the linen content. There was also a sewing fault on the back outside seam. Disappointed so I returned it.
