I've been wearing this knee length coat from the Seasalt Rain collection to work for the past week in the sun, showers and heavy rain is it practical for pretty much all weather. I would advise sizing up if you want to wear this in the winter because it's lightweight and you will want to layer some jumpers underneath which might mean a tight squeeze if you get your regular size.
Coat: c/o Seasalt | Rubber shoes: Vivienne Westwood by Melissa
The Original Raincoat is made from organic cotton with a Tin Cloth coating which keeps it waterproof. It comes in navy or poppy with a hood, button up front, sleeves and pockets, and contrast stitch detail. I have to admit I feel rather sophisticated walking around in this instead of my usual biker jacket or demin jacket and I've stayed considerably drier when wearing this in the rain.
Tin Cloth fabric is unique to Seasalt coats and is their own interpretation of a traditional oil skin. Waterproofs used to be made by coating heavy canvas with linseed oil but Seasalt have gone a little more hi-tec which means the fabric is both waterproof and breathable.
