    Came across Protected Species whilst looking for a new stylish ethical waterproof for dog walking. Bought the Olive Green Rain Bomber. It’s quite a soft warm olive green, very comfy and I love wearing it and the rain just bounces off it. Hope that continues to be the case as it gets worn and washed.
    So happy with this that I am now looking to purchase a Parka but everyday or Winter one is my dilemma.

    This really is an amazing jacket. I’ve used it all winter. I wasn’t as keen on the fabric at first – it does have a soft and to be honest, luxurious feel, but I’d had a coat previously that felt similar and used to get very static, so I was expecting the same with this. I’m glad to say I’ve not had a problem with static, and best of all, it has been completely waterproof, which amazes me. I’ve paid quite a bit in the past for coats that are supposed to be waterproof and aren’t. Anyway, this is great, looks smart and is waterproof. Maybe a lightweight ‘packable’ design would be good for summer? This has been great for winter and I haven’t needed to wear anything very thick underneath (in the south), but it would be great to have a smart lightweight packable jacket.

    I have owned this jacket for a few weeks now, and can honestly say that it has become my favourite jacket. The pictures can’t capture how soft and luxurious it feels. I can’t believe there aren’t more reviews singing its praises. Please don’t change anything about this. Just more colours please 🙂

    I own a parka and a Mac. I love the idea of the city walker, but it’s too short for me (I’m six foot). I took a little while to take the plunge and order this, but – oh my – am I glad I did. It’s another absolutely gorgeous offering from Protected Species. Sharp lines, stretchy flowing material. It covers my bottom, and the sleeves reach just past my wrists (I had to size up, as a tall size 10, but the drawcords allow me to create shape and cinch it in, so it looks a perfect fit). I adore the new hood shape, and the tonal lining. Also love how the hood zips away. The olive colour is beautiful. I thought it was too dark when I opened the package, but in the light it is a truly stunning colour. I love the navy, but as I wear a lot of blue jeans, I prefer to have a contrast with my coat colour.I feel happy, comfortable, and ‘cool’ wearing this. Try it; you won’t be disappointed.

    I wear this jacket everywhere. It looks really cool, while being completely waterproof. Best purchase I’ve made in a while

For dual sized garments,  the fabric handle and many adjustable parts used for shaping the jacket, means that each size will fit both sizes indicated. for example, size 12-14 will fit a standard UK size 14, with a slightly looser feel on the size 12. If you are between sizing, for example you are normally a 14-16, we recommend choosing the larger size. Our products are all true-to-size to generous to allow for layering (they are suitable for all year round use).

For single sized jackets we recommend choosing your regular size.

Product Care

We recommend using Grangers products with our garments. They are a brand, like ourselves, dedicated to keeping you dry no matter what the weather. As a technical garment, your Protected Species jacket will need a bit more TLC than your regular clothes. Using the recommended products will keep your jacket performing well and ensure longevity of your Protected Species garments. (Note – regular washing powder can affect waterproofing and repellency)


Grangers Performance Wash is what we recommend for washing our garments as well as preparing them for reproofing. Performance wash will clean, remove odours, optimise breathability, and maintain existing water-repellency. It also provides all garments with a clean, residue-free base for optimal re-proofing.

Grangers Performance Wash is designed to work at 30°C (86°F). Simply place the product in the washing machine’s drawer before washing. Ensure the drawer is free from detergent residue. Afterwards, drip-dry your Protected Species garment (don’t tumble dry) – it will look as good as new once dry.

All waterproof jackets need reproofing from time-to-time as DWR coatings wear off with day-to-day use as well as washing. You will know to reproof when the fabric on your Protected Species starts to “wet-out” and the water doesn’t roll off it so easily. Note – this doesn’t affect the waterproofing. We recommend Grangers Clothing Repel on our waterproof garments. This is a fluorocarbon-free wash-in waterproofer to replenish the durable water-repellent finish on your jacket. The product will also enhance breathability. Grangers Clothing Repel is designed to work at 30°C (86°F). Simply place the product in the washing machine’s drawer before washing (ensuring the drawer is free from detergent residue). Grangers Clothing Repel does not require heat activation therefore garments can be drip dryed (don’t tumble dry your Protected Species jacket). Ensure garments are completely dry before use.
