Trespass Waterproof Jacket Review

As I do the school run every day, I find myself getting wet – a lot! Sometimes the rain manages to seep through my supposedly waterproof coat, too. So when Trespass contacted me asking me whether I’d like to put one of their waterproof jackets through it’s paces, I was keen to give it a whirl. Today I am sharing with you my Trespass waterproof jacket review. 

I chose the Chitter Womens Waterproof Coat, and opted to have the Khaki. It was a tricky decision, as I do also like the Flint and Mallard colours, too.

Here I am in it…

Wearing Trespass Chitter Coat

Trespass Waterproof Jacket Review

Now I cannot tell you the last time that I put on a coat and immediately went ‘oooh’, if ever! And I kid you not, that’s exactly what I did when I popped this one on for the first time.

Why? The lining is a soft fleecy fur around the body, and then the sleeves are silky smooth. It felt both practical and luxurious all in one.

I’ve been testing it out and have managed to wear it in all manner of weather conditions, and these are the things that have struck me about it:

– it feels really lightweight, and not at all bulky

– despite it being so lightweight, it has kept me toasty warm, even in the high winds I was out in last week (a school run!)

– it has a good freedom of movement, I don’t feel constricted at all in it, and that’s even with it done up.

– it is definitely water proof. I got caught in one of those heavy downpours that seem to strike at 8.30 then miraculously stop at 9, the school run rain curse! My jeans were soaked through, but my upper body, bone dry!

– when it does get wet, it doesn’t hold the water. It runs off it and then dries quite quickly once back inside. It doesn’t feel to heavy and bulky even when wet.

As to the other practicalities, there are 7 pockets with nice big chunky buttons, a detachable hood, adjustable cuffs, and it has both zip and velcro fastenings.

Oh, and did I mention the lining is soft and fleecy? Oh yes, I might have done, but it is so lovely!

Trespass Chitter Jacket details

As you can probably tell, I really like and rate this coat.

I can literally find no fault with it. It’s been absolutely perfect for the school runs, and I’m wearing it on every single other occasion I go out now, too.

It keeps me warm, but not so I’m all hot and bothered, I’m very comfortable in it no matter what layers and clothes I have on underneath, I like the colour and style of it, and most importantly in April in the UK, it keeps me dry!

What do you think of it?

Disclosure: I received this coat FOC for the the purposes of this review, but all words and opinions remain my own.

      I really like it, as you can no doubt tell! It feels so light and comfy yet it really keeps the elements out. Snuggly and dry 🙂

    if there’s one thing any parent needs its a decent waterproof coat! I got a Trespass coat from a charity shop which was soooo gorgeous but sadly is now too small. They are such quality coats x

    I could really do with something like this for the school run, if it’s raining I get soaked because it’s pretty tricky to hold an umbrella while you’re pushing a pushchair so this would be great, fab review! 🙂 #TriedTested

    That sounds lovely! I always despair of finding a nice coat with a hood but this looks perfect, not too heavy, nice and snuggly and waterproof. Why does it always wait until pick-up time to pour with rain? #triedtested

    Hi, I’ve been looking at buying this coat but was wondering is the outer like a fabric or a plastic sort of feel like a normal waterproof coat? Wanted it to wear when standing in the rain at my sons football matches and I know that the fabric type ones hold water and didn’t fancy soaking the car seats in journey home! Thanks in advance.

      Hello! The outer is more like fabric than plastic, though I’ve not had a problem with it holding in the water like that so you should be OK
