English weather isn't great at any time of the year but especially in winter. I wasn't really prepared in September when Paige first started pre school . I knew id have to pick her up and drop her off but the weather wasn't at the front of mind. I didn't realise quite how long I'd be stood in the wind and rain. Safe to say my coat wasn't very practical. It used to take a good 24 hours to dry out sometimes. I needed something to keep me warm and dry. That's where Trespass come in.
I was sent the Blizzard Womens 3 in 1 Jacket in Sandy. The outer shell of the jacket is waterproof to 3000mm and is breathable. I have stayed super dry with the jacket and its so lovely to get home, take my jacket off and for my clothes to be dry whereas before they would always be wet.
The jacket comes with an inner fleece. This can be taken out if needed and worn on its own. I haven't fully worn the fleece by itself yet as the weather is still pretty cold but I do love the fleece. It is super soft and fits really nicely. The fleece is easily attached and detached from the outer shell with poppers and a zip.
I love the parka style of the jacket. The faux fur trim around the hood adds a bit of detail and makes it feel like a regular coat, a stylish coat. It is detachable if you wish to take it off though. I've kept it on as I like it. Personally I'd love the hood to be a little bigger. I'm not sure if I've got a weird shaped head but I find it difficult to get the hood to actually stay up sometimes and if its really windy you have no chance.
There are 6 pockets which is great for me as I usually don't take a bag with me on the school run. The bottom pockets are nice and big. I love the chest pockets as they have a bit of fleece in them, I use them to keep my hands nice and warm. There is also Velcro on the sleeves so you can tighten if needed.
I've really loved testing out this coat and will continue to use it. I think its a really lovely jacket and does the job perfectly. There are a lovely range of other 3 in 1 jackets available if this one doesn't look like the one for you. The sizing is also pretty good. I got an XS and I'm normally a 6/8. The fleece fits lovely but the outer shell is quite big but it doesn't feel huge and is super comfortable. It's also not heavy which is great. The jacket is currently priced at £60.99.
Have you tried Trespass?
