It's not often you find a waterproof jacket that's well-priced, stylish and practical. But we have, and it's a must-buy if you're looking for something to withstand the rainy weather this autumn.
Roman Original's Waxed Longline Hooded Coat, £89, is the perfect piece to fight off the inclement weather here in the UK, and it's already flying off shelves.
Scoring an average of 4.9 out of five stars, it comes in five colours and has even had shoppers receive compliments when out and about. One customer said, "Lovely coat, warm and looks good. I have had quite a few compliments on it when out".
Who knew dodging showers could be so stylish?
Why we rate it
Complete with an adjustable cord on the waist so that you can cinch the jacket in for a nice, nipped-in shape, it also comes with a hood which is adjustable to your head size and removable.
The coat is generously sized, making it great for layering over the top of jumpers when the weather gets cooler.
It goes to just below mid-thigh (approximately knee length if you're petite), and the outside is waxed, which means you can brave the rainy weather outside with confidence that you'll stay dry.
There's also a number of pockets, including two big, deep pockets on the front which are perfect for keeping all of your essentials like your gloves, phone, keys and doggy bags.
It comes in a range of colours, too: Khaki, Black, Bordeaux, Chocolate and Navy, giving you plenty to choose from. Not just that, but it comes in a wide range of sizes from 10 to 20.
The fact that this pick is genuinely warm and waxed to further safeguard the wearer against wet weather, is another huge plus point.
Another bonus? It's machine washable.
We have a feeling that lots of women will be snapping up this brilliant buy and wearing it while walking their dogs or going for autumn strolls.
What the reviews say
Shoppers have been wowed by the practicality and style of this waterproof jacket, describing it as "flattering" and "versatile". One reviewer even said that they often find outerwear baggy, yet this coat doesn't overwhelm their petite figure.
"Another fab purchase from Roman. I had been looking for a long waterproof jacket with a hood and found this to be perfect. I purchased the khaki jacket. It is true to size, warm with great pockets. I may have to purchase the chocolate one also! I would recommend this jacket as an addition to your winter wardrobe."
"This is such a lovely coat! Generous sizing, but not unflattering, and leaves room for warm clothes worn underneath! I just bought it, so not tried in the rain. Seems like it should be waterproof enough (waxed coat). Great buy for a very affordable price!"
"Been looking for a reasonably stylish waxed coat for a while. This ticked the box. I am 5'1 and [a] size 10/12. Often outerwear like this can look too baggy on me, but this didn’t. There is a cord at the back inside you can pull to tighten up and give a waist line which is great. 10/10."
"I love everything about this coat. Well made, good quality and fit. Fully lined, including the hood which is the best fitting hood ever. Plenty of pockets including two that fasten with lots of room. When the coat is zipped up and fastened it provides warm, wind proof protection from the weather. The hood is removable and the collar is lined for comfort."
"Nice coat! Will keep me warm and dry for my walks on the beach. Really nice lining and of course the outside is wax so I won't get wet."
