I was really disappointed to find that my old winter coat has a huge tear in it when I took it out of the coat cupboard – who knows how that happened.
It left me searching for the perfect winter coat.
My requirement were that it was warm, waterproof, as I walk to and from school daily, whatever the weather and was long enough to cover my bottom.
I narrowed it down to a shortlist of two, however, it was the Joules Wyndfall Marine 3-in-1 jacket that won my heart.
What sold it to me was the fact that is a 3-in-1 coat which can be worn three ways.
For cool dry days, the teal coloured padded inner jacket is perfect for keeping you warm and is in my favourite colour. For cool, wet days, the soft, peached cotton, 100% waterproof navy jacket is ideal for keeping you dry.
The coat has an adjustable waist, large front pockets and a large faux fur trimmed hood – perfect for hiding under when the weather turns nasty and when extra warmth and protection is required, zip them both together for double the warmth and protection from the elements.
I have to say I am really impressed with the coat, although I have only worn it zipped together so far as it is been rather chilly of late.
It kept me snug and warm on a bitter day down at the beach, dry and cosy on a cold and wet day at Paultons Park and dry on a school run in the torrential rain.
I am confident that this jacket will keep me warm and dry in all the elements that the British weather will throw at me this winter, right through to spring and even summer.
