A sunny spring raincoat from Outdoorsupply

This post features product gifted for review

For some reason, even though I generally struggle to inject colour into my wardrobe, I have no problem with brightly coloured coats and this spring is no different.  After that glorious burst of sunshine last week I’ve banished my bulky winter coat to the back of my wardrobe and replaced it with the gorgeous Ilse Jacobsen raincoat in “Cyber Yellow” from Outdoorsupply.

Of course we still can’t trust the British weather so making sure my new coat is waterproof is key when it comes to school runs and general adventuring!  This lightweight raincoat is made of 100% polyurethane, has a waterproof zip and is water repellent (up to 500m water pressure) – take that Manchester and heavy April showers!

I absolutely love the bright, bold yellow colour – there was certainly no missing me on the school run today, though I do think it looks better if I’ve actually put a face of make up on rather than just rolled out of bed and off to school on a Monday morning!

The roomy sleeves feature poppers which allow you to fasten the cuffs more tightly – this is a real win for me as I hate sleeves flapping about and getting in my way but elasticated cuffs aren’t exactly stylish are they?  The poppers just make everything look really neat.  My only slight niggle is that the pockets are not very deep and the super smooth fabric makes me think that my phone probably isn’t all that safe in my pocket and I think it would slide out easily.

The lightweight fabric is easy to wear and keeps the wind out as well as the rain off.  I had worried that it might be a little sweaty to wear but thus far this hasn’t been an issue.  The two way zip is easy to fasten and there is room for a cardigan or jumper underneath on a cooler day – I think this coat is going to be a real win for festivals in the summer as well as a regular feature on the school run!

UPDATE Sept ’19: I’m still wearing and loving my waterproof coat – it has seen me through countless soggy school runs, festivals and days out and still looks as good as the day I got it.

    I love the colour of this! Perfect for our spring weather. I worry about my phone falling out of pockets so would have liked this more if if the pockets where deeper #TriedTested

    After seeing so many of your lovely reviews with great rain wear for the girls I’m so pleased to see you with something too! It’s a great colour and definitely the sort of fabric to keep you super dry

    What a gorgeous coat! That colour really suits you and the length is really good, most raincoats are either really long or too short #TriedTested

    I am exactly the same, nearly all of my clothes are either black or blue. But like you, this year I also opted for a bright yellow coat! You look great by the way #triedtested
