    Additional Information

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed. I tried the size S in store and found it tight at the shoulders and chest. Ordered the M, as everyone said the parka runs quite large. The M was indeed bigger in body, but just as narrow in the shoulders and chest. It's a real shame, as the colour and material are nice and it looks very good. Needless to say, it has been returned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Rain Jacket! I cannot recommend this jacket highly enough! I have been using this jacket during my commute and also on walks. The fit is slightly loose so it's perfect to fit a knit jumper under your jacket on colder days. The pockets are fleeced lined and can fit a lot in them. There is also a draw cord on the back if you want a more fitted shape of the jacket which is extremely flattering. I wear a size 8/10 and I stayed true to size and got a size S. #teamsweatybetty

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Have been looking for a waterproof parka for ages but sadly this isn’t the solution. The hunt continues...

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from A waterproof jacket with an unusable hood? I bought this jacket last week and wore it for the first time today. It was pouring rain and so I needed the hood up; it was impossible, the hood is enormous falling over my face and half way down my nose. As a result when walking you can only see the ground directly in front of you. I persevered for half an hour despite being unable to see either of the two children I was supposedly walking with. Then I walked in to a low branch, which obviously I had been unable to see, scraped my head hard and had to go home. This is such a design flaw that I really feel it’s unacceptable SB. I would be grateful if you could get in touch.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Useless hood The coat is nice, I wear it both casually and to work. Like the warm pockets but wish there were side slits on the pockets. But my main gripe is the totally useless hood. It's far too big, I can't see anything when I pull it up. The wind catches or easily and blows it down. I walked my 8 year old to school and watched in frustration that his Lidl raincoat hood stayed put and snug to his head, while I spent the whole time holding my hood to try to keep it on and in a position where I could see. I'd return the coat if I could, I think a raincoat needs to be functional above all else. I'm dismayed at all the reviews stating that the coat is also not waterproof. Such an expensive dud.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from New winter coat Have purchased this to do the school run, walk the dog and general stuff out and about. Agree hood is rather large better if you wear a hat under it. The length is good and it’s comfortable. Sadly I was disappointed this week as I tested the waterproofness. My back and shoulders felt damp. The lining however seemed dry. I think there is a problem with the outer layer becoming too damp. Agree it’s a shower proof or cold weather coat not for heavy rainfall. Sweaty Betty should look at this!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks great, NOT waterproof. Sadly not a match in any sense to my 3 or 4yr old Sweaty Betty raincoat that has just retired..... It looks great but this is NOT waterproof by any means. A walk to school and back in a light rain is too much for it!! For the price tag it carries I expect far better than this Sweaty Betty.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lovely apart from too-big hood This coat is really flattering and lovely to wear. I’d say it’s water-resistant rather than water-proof. My only real gripe is the hood, which is so big you cannot see out when it’s up. Useless!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stride waterproof parka I wish I’ve read the reviews before buying!!! SHOULD NOT BE ADVERTISED AS WATERPROOF!! Such a disappointment...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this parka so i have been looking for something similar for ages and i am in love with this. it’s so flattering and goes with everything. i have it in a size xs, i am a 10/12 and it’s baggy, but i knew it would be and prefer it this way. could have probably sized down, but i love this size, it’s perfect for me. waterproof and can also adjust the cord on the waist to make it more fitted.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but a few flaws Love the colour, fit, style and waterproofness but 2 issues: firstly the hood is FAR too big. It has too much material in it and comes down to my nose so I can’t see. Even with the drawstrings tightened it is massive. Might work over a thick bobble hat but just too big to be useful. It could do with a popper or buckle strap to tighten it. I’ve taken to trying to fold the front back into a cuff. Second improvement would be to have pockets that were both top opening but also with a slanted opening to slip hands into more easily (that’s a minor issue). I like the fact the pockets are lined and warm, it’s big and slouchy but can be fitted with the drawstring waist. It looks great but please sort out the hood for the next version - feel the focus has been too much on fashion here and not enough on efficacy.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Love it but not waterproof Bought this coat last season - I love the style and colour but it’s not waterproof and now the seams are coming apart. First time I thought it was because the rain was torrential but on Friday in showers the water came through. Such a shame.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart and practical Received my parka today in green and am pleased with the cut and the colour. I ordered an XS and it fits me perfectly. I'm usually size 8 or XS in SB dresses, jumpsuits and leggings etc. I love that the parka is oversized so I can layer up with fleeces or jumpers as the weather turns. I've not worn it in the rain yet but it is intended for rainy walks to work and dog walks so I'm hoping it is waterproof.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Waterproof Frustratingly sold as waterproof, which is why I bought it, but it isn’t at all. Took my dog for a walk in the rain and got completely soaked through. Really disappointing.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Jacket but awaiting return confirmation I ordered this Jacket after seeing the reviews and it is great, but much to big. I ordered a medium as I’m a size 12 and it was ridiculously large. I have returned this item 2 weeks ago now and have had no confirmation it’s been received. I have been emailing and calling for about a week plus the live chat but can’t get any response. Please Sweaty Betty contact me!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from It’s not waterproof! I’ve previously reviewed this parka and gave it 5*. Today I wore it for the first time in the rain. I was out for 30-40 minutes in moderate rain and the lining is wet in the shoulder area and in various other places so my sweatshirt and leggings are also wet. DEFINITELY NOT WATERPROOF so not good value for money. Poor effort from SB!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Order a smaller size! I am usually a medium but I ordered a small after reading the reviews. However the small totally swamped me. With the zip done up it was still huge and when I put the inner pull things to their tightest it just looked weird! I returned and ordered an XS. Hopefully this will fit better!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wanted to love this I tried this coat in M and S. The former swamped me. The latter was just a little tight in my shoulders. I really wanted one or other to work because the quality is lovely. However, neither did. I honestly wasn’t wowed by the colour either. It’s more of an airforce blue than a dark navy and didn’t really flatter me at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect throw on coat to style with everything I brought this coat as the weather at the moment is so unpredictable, one minute hot one minute raining. On a recent trip to Matlock it was perfect! It has fleece in lined pockets super comfy and can fit everything in! All the essentials, especially at the moment it fits a mask, hand sanitiser, keys, purse, phone the lot. Lovely beetle blue colour which literally suits everyone. Am 5,8 and its the perfect length for me, id describe it as over sized slightly rather than size up. I love how you can pull in the waist for a more fitted look or have loose too. #teamsweatybetty

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this parka Love this parka! I looked at the reviews and IT IS designed to be oversized. I’m in between a S-M so bought S. fits great I can get big sweatshirts under it but I don’t feel swamped. It’s ideal for summer into Autumn and I know I’m going to get lots of wear going to and from Pilates, out for coffee and walking on the beach. I would definitely buy it in another colour or even Camo print if available.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shame about the colour! This is an awesome coat. The cut is fab, the quality is spot on and the pockets are big and beautifully designed. It's fully waterproof (it's coped with the legendary Mancunian rain). The only reason it's four stars rather than five is because it's an ordinary dark navy colour rather than the bright blue it appears to be on the website. I had the same problem with the Twilight trousers that looked powder blue and are actually navy. Love your clothes Sweaty Betty but please look at making website colours more accurate!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect autumn jacket Love this jacket. Great length, sleeves a good length and perfect hood coverage! It is roomy but that’s the style of it and means can layer up. Love it!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A classic design given a Sweaty Betty update Good quality, lovely colour. Arrived quickly. Parkas are meant to be oversized so the coat fitted exactly as I expected it would. Nice to have some room to add layers underneath as the weather gets colder. I haven't tested it in the rain yet but no coat is 100% waterproof so I'm not expecting miracles. I'm getting a lot of wear out of this which justifies the price tag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect...almost! Love the colour, yes it is quite loose fitting so size down if that bothers you. Hope it’s waterproof...yet to be tested, but there is one teeny thing that brings it from a 5 to a 4 star...next time SB, perhaps the pockets could be “two-way” in that you can slide your hands in through a vertical opening as well as the standard pocket. It’s a design a lot of coats have now and I automatically went to slide my hands in...only to ge disappointed! Perhaps one for the future?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality parka Why people can't read description carefully, it is written OVERSIZED parka which means it should be loose. Great and stylish raincoat, happy I bought it size S, as my usual size is also S. Guys, look at the model on the picture, parka is loose on her. All comments about sizing, but is should be loose and bid.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from This is a big coat Super big. Love the color, but holy cow it's big. Construction and details are great. Returned.
    Date published: 2020-09-04
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from a little confused re sizing I am slim, 5'8" and typically SB small size. Reading these reviews, I bought a small. but even though it is a loose fit, it is not so roomy around the shoulders and the front rides up at the neck which makes it uncomfortable if zipped up. Just posting this for info for others my size. I'm disappointed as it looks otherwise to be a great coat. Now I just need to wait for the medium to be back in stock and hope the fit is better.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not waterproof I bought this because it said it was waterproof. Wore it for the first time in the admittedly driving rain yesterday: pockets were wet inside, and the fleece I was wearing is still wet down the sides today. So, not waterproof. Looks good, but won’t keep out the rain.
    Date published: 2020-09-03
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from It’s huge! I thought this would be the ideal jacket for autumn dog walks when it gets a bit colder and rainy, but it’s vast! I’m normally a 12 and ordered the small based on previous reviews but it could house a small family. I think even the XS would be too big.
