    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Waterproof Jacket ever I got this rain jacket for when I go walking . And it has been the Best Buy I made . It’s comfortable, it’s warm and the hood covers all of your head . I would recommend this to everyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Parker (almost...) The Stride Parker is excellent and exactly what I was looking for... almost. I’ve seen a lot of reviews suggesting it’s not that waterproof but I’ve been out in some heavy downpours and not gotten wet (yet) but I assume like any waterproof coat, a spray with a waterproofer will resolve any issues. The almost... the pockets are fab for carrying phone, purse, mask, hand gel but I like to walk with my hands in my pockets and you can’t do that with this coat - the pockets open at the top with a flap over them. If you added a side opening outer pocket on top of the existing pockets, that would be perfect! The hood is also very big, probably too big. I can see I’ll be looking into a way to keep it from falling too far forward.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this! Just received, it's really well made, feels much more substantial as a coat than I expected as it's lined and has fleecy pockets, which is a snug detail. I can't imagine it isn't waterproof like the other reviews stated. It feels like it will repel the rain. I'm petite, 5ft 2 inches and 7 and a half stone and I ordered an XS. It fits across the shoulders so I'm glad I didn't order an XXS as I imagine it might be too tight. I'd happily buy another one of these in green and I'm hoping for new stock to come in at SB. The arms are a bit long and I wish SB would consider this for petite people, although I rolled up the sleeves once and it looks okay. Love that it covers my bum and thighs for those long walks with my dog. I live in the countryside so this is perfect and it looks stylish too. Just one thing SB, please start using brown paper to send out your clothes in and biodegradable plastic bags. You're a big company who should be doing this now. Other similar companies do. :0)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fab Parka I’ve never had a Parka before not sure that it was my style. This one is perfect can just through on nice fit, cut and colour looks great on.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great coat, but the hood needs thought I LOVE the style and fit of this coat. It's perfect for walking the dog. The hood needs more thought. When it's actually raining and you need it up the largeness (which makes it look so nice when it's down) means it just falls over your face. There needs to be a chord or velcro or something on the back of the hood to stop this happening. I'm seriously contemplating using some kind of clip. Very nearly a great coat.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not waterproof I bought this coat last year for long dog walks in the rain, encouraged by the waterproof advertising I paid the hefty price tag. Whilst the design is super, and big pockets for all my dog walking stuff, phone, etc I was so disappointed when I got wet through in my first downpour. By then it was too late to return the coat. I recently revisited the website to look at other reviews to see if this was just my coat/a fault. It seems others have the same issue. I love SB stuff but it’s really unfair to advertise and charge for the waterproof tag when the product is not :(

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Waterproof to my tests but needs improvement I wouldn't use this jacket for a long mountain hike in the rain, as this is not what I would call a technical jacket. If I'm out for hours I'll trek in my (expensive and very technical fabric, very adjustable hood, breathable) mountain jacket. Problem is my mountain jacket is not attractive. What I would love is for my mountain jacket to meet sweaty betty styling. This SB offering is not too bad, but certainly not up to technical standard for proper downpour hikes. I've worn it in heavy rain while wandering around a town, exploring gardens, etc. And remained dry. However I've just had the snap on the pocket fail and have been in touch with customer service who have offered a credit or to send another. I've asked for them to send another - hopefully this next one will be more long - lived. I think overall this is a good jacket (if the faulty snap is a one - off) but don't expect it to be appropriate for hard, technical use that would require better fabric , breathable construction, adjustable hood, etc. At this price point it wouldn't be possible to do all that... or maybe that's a challenge to SB to design and produce.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT WATERPROOF So disappointed with this jacket and customer service. I got completely soaked after 20 mins walk with the dog in light drizzle...Sent it back weeks ago as agreed with customer service and still no refund. Very poor experience, likely my last purchase at SB.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not waterproof I gave this a good review earlier but that was before I wore it in a rain shower. Got totally soaked through. I’m sorry SB but don’t advertise a coat as waterproof if it isn’t. I will want to be returning this as it is not as described. I suggest wording the stride parka as “water resistant” - I for one wouldn’t have bought it on that basis as I wanted a stylish but functional coat. Top marks for style but seriously zero for substance.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bit disappointed Gorgeous colour but I wore it doing the nursery run this morning in the pouring rain and I was soaked through. Don't say something is waterproof when it's not guys!!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misadvertisment This parka is not not light as advertised. It is made of heavy duty/heavy weight canvas army tarp. In calfs , where it is reinforced with stitches, it's not flexible.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great shape but only useful for 'light use' I had hoped this coat would be good for walking in the rain. Was pleased with fit and look. On first real walk in the rain for a 5k walk, it was great at first but was not breathable. By the time I returned home I was wet through - I thought this was due to trapped sweat but after reading other reviews I wonder if it not waterproof. The hood is slightly too big and does not allow a clear view. SB - you need to fully check your clothing and make sure it is fit for purpose.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely design but not waterproof Bought this in August. Usually a 10 in tops but I have athletic shoulders and its slightly neat. 12 is too large in the body. Love the cut but now a couple of months in and its soaking right through unfortunately. Did think it was quite a claim but hey ho. As long as you expect it to be water resistant for light showers you'll not be disappointed

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super cute I ordered this for my sister, but it's so cute on, I may end up keeping it for myself. Lol. I ordered a "small" for my sister who is 5'10 and usually wears a size 8/10 in Lulu tops. In 5'4 and usually wear a 10/12 in Lulu tops and the SB jacket fits both of us perfect. How is that possible, u ask? I have no idea. I sized down because everyone said the jacket runs big. I can confirm, it definitely runs big. I usually wear a 10 in Lululemon jackets and "Large" in Lole jackets, but the SB "small" was perfect. Then again, I don't like the oversize look the model is wearing and wanted a more tapered fit. I haven't tried it on the rain, but that's not really the reason I purchased the jacket. I got it because it was cute, and, to that end, it does not disappoint.

    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 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 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.
