Official description

The Alan Paine Berwick Ladies’ Waterproof Long Coat has a waterproof and breathable cotton blend outer with a soft mock suede leather inside collar for comfort, two-way zipper with studded placket, copious pockets including hand-warmer pockets, detachable hood with detachable mock fur trim, large back riding vent and lower lining leg straps hold the coat secure while walking or in the saddle. It is available in a choice of olive (pictured), dark navy or brown.

First impressions

This appeared to be a smart looking coat that looked stylish but practical for the winter months.

Overview of performance

This coat fitted well and I felt really good wearing it. I liked how that it covered my legs, but was definitely more suited to wearing off the horse.

Likes and dislikes

I am a fan of the style and fit, but it is expensive so more of an investment piece, but it looks like it will last.

Verdict

This is a smart, but expensive coat that is waterproof and should last the test of time.
