    You could say I am a fan of the Protected Species brand- this is my fourth purchase. I the way this jacket ‘flows’ and the fabric is so soft. I get so many compliments when I wear any of the jackets and (begrudgingly) pass on details of the website.

    Love, love, love this coat. I am rather annoyed it’s warm weather at the moment because I want to wear it all the time. I have never had such a beautiful coat, and the fact that it’s waterproof too is fabulous. The team is delightful to deal with, speedy responses and great advice. I have also bought another style (City Walker) for my daughter, and might have to get another for myself.

    I LOVE the commuter – it arrived today. I ordered the parka first and I really liked the fabric but the style did not suit me – the collar was too big. The free return process and money refund was excellent. The only reason I did not buy the commuter to start with was the colour. I really did not want black and the red and olive were the ‘wrong’ shades for me. However I will just have to wear a scarf to lighten it up. The coat has a lovely feel and the shape is perfect – obviously I have not tested out its weather capabilities yet but judging from the references I am sure it will be perfect. Please could we have some ‘spring’ colours in the range – you do Winter, Autumn and Summer colours – but no spring – what about a clear navy or a stone? I think this will turn out to be my go to coat

    I love it. It’s just arrived this morning so I haven’t had a chance to try it out, but frankly I don’t care. I’ve tried it on and it looks amazing. Plus I know that when I take it to wet blustery Cape Town next week, it’s going to be the perfect top layer, stylish but practical. And the team were amazing. I initially ordered the wrong size, realised in a panic when it arrived and hastily asked them to send me a replacement in time for my trip. Incredible service. Thank you!

    I ordered the Commuter in Burnt Horizon after seeing it on a fashion website, it might have been Stylist or Emerald Street; I fell in love at first sight. When it arrived I was so excited and as I opened the packet I knew that this was going to be The One, a lifelong love. It’s just so beautiful, all clean lines and perfect draping, it feels so comfortable and light, yet it protected me well from the cold wind of this unseasonally miserable spring. Wearing it makes me feel better looking , stylish and elegant. I have received innumerable compliments about it and I have recommended it – and Protected Species – to more people than I can count. Not only this is the most stylish outdoor garment I will ever possess, it is just so well made and carefully finished. A very important bonus on top of all this joy is the fact that all your manufacturing is ethical, which is a major issue for me when deciding what to buy. Thank you, Protected Species, in me you now have a customer for life!

    I too have have purchased the Commuter after owning the trench for some time – in my case, the black. For me, the relaxed feel of the style of the commuter in the body was ideal as I ride my bike to work and whilst the trench kept me totally dry and looked smart, even on an upright Brompton I felt slightly constrained by the belt. The Commuter, however, is absolutely perfect with the room in the body area, fitting nice and neat on the shoulder and still looking sleek and smart elsewhere. The zipped pockets are ideal for my Oyster card as I do a mixed mode commute. The high neck was lovely and cosy and the fabric is some sort of magic in blocking wind along by the Thames. This coat should see me into all but the deepest winter with another layer on – today at 8 degrees I had only a short sleeve merino top and jeans, and was plenty snug.

    I am a 12-14 short and did have to size down from the size that my trench is due to the roomier style of the Commuter. Return and exchange for the Small was quick and easy.

    Just purchased ‘The Commuter’ in burnt horizon after owning a blue trench for some time
    I loved the original but for me this is even better. It’s really gorgeous. It’s versatile and will be suitable for both visits to London and walking the tors in Devon
    It has a very relaxed feel and a so neat hood concealed in the collar
    I am anywhere between a 10 and 14 with a small frame and the size 2 fitted me perfectly.
    Thanks for the coat and your excellent service
