    Having purchase a green PS Parka, I felt that it was too nice to wear to work and as an estate agent, I wanted something a bit more ‘business like’. My fashion sense outside of work is quite sporty and relaxed, something which the parka ticked all the boxes on. I knew that the fabric on the coat wouldn’t disappoint with regards to keeping me warm, cool and dry – whatever the weather. So I decided to go for the PS Mac in storm grey. The classic cut is lovely. I’m out in all weathers and Bath is a hilly city. I can cover many miles in my heels in 1 day and the last thing I want is to turn up at a viewing all hot and sweaty OR drenched from the British weather. I love the belt, which just makes it that much smarter. As with the parka, the cut for the taller lady is fab. The sleeves are long and the length is perfect. In a rainstorm I am always bone dry and on a spring day I am cool. Its also light enough to carry or fold up and pop in my bag when the sun does eventually shine. All hail the PS Mac!

    As a rule I don’t order clothes or shoes over the Internet, but when I read the Evening Standard article and its praise of this coat, I just knew that I must have it!
    I loved the colour right away, but in reality it looks even better than on the screen. It truly was love at first sight, twice over … first when I spotted the coat through the eyes of the Evening Standard’s praise and then for certain when I opened the box that delivered the Mac to Luxembourg a mere two days after I’d placed my order!!!
    Currently the two of us are enjoying a weekend in London, our first extended outing together, and while I cannot comment on the “waterproof” qualities – the past two days have been dry and mainly sunny – I feel like a perfectly protected species. “We” even received compliments for our smart and cool look. 🙂
    The fit is picture perfect and while I am just over the moon, there is one certain little detail that deserves special mention: the tie belt that comes with stud fastening to the rear (to avoid loss) … or generally the belt developing a mind (and life) of its own.
    in short: the coolest and mos stylish Mac I’ve ever owned, I guess even being caught in a real heavy downpour won’t be such an ordeal while safely wrapped up it it.
    Thank you so much for this fabulous garment and keep up your excellent work.
    Luxembourg may be but a tiny country but you have one truly addicted customer there. 🙂

    This is my 4th purchase and they just keep getting better and better. I bought my first mac in 2014 and it’s still going strong. I decided I wanted to try the new colour Storm and it’s lovely very unusual colour. There have been some changes to the Mac design and they are really good, the tie belt, more fitted hood etc are all welcome changes. The core quality hasn’t changed, still sits really well while still being fully waterproof and able to handle what ever the Scottish weather throws at it.

    The best coat I have ever bought. Where have you been all my life!!!! Day one I am in love. Chucked it down on walk to nursery with buggy today in usual work dress and still felt dry but smart. Yes there might be marginally trendier designs on the high street BUT honestly there has been SO much thought put into the design of this coat, it is super.

    My mac has just arrived, it fits perfectly and I’m delighted with it. I originally bought the size S and exchanged it for a L. Anne couldn’t have been more helpful and kept me posted at all times. Thank you

    I’m really disappointed! I have been looking at these coats for a few months now, and decided to get one for my birthday. From the reviews, and the price point, I had high expectations. There’s nothing wrong with the coat, it does fit nicely, but I was just so underwhelmed with it. It just looks totally ordinary. Maybe my expectations were too high!

    Wow!! My white mac arrived today and its fabulous. Great fit, wonderful attention to detail and excellent quality. Totally in love with it! Can’t wait to purchase the City Walker when it’s back in stock. I will be spreading the word about this awesome brand. Keep up the great work!

    Have had my Mac for over a year or so now and still very happy with it – stylish enough to wear to work but the performance of a sports jacket. Fab for airplane travel – breathable and stretchy. Am here to get another one :-). Only feature I would like to add is a 2 way zipper – please consider doing this, it would stop the jackets from bunching up when riding or biking!

    After months of searching, found the perfect coat, stylish and different from the crow. Fabric feels lovely and will keep me warm w/o over-heating and, of course, dry!
    Great customer service: brochure and fabric samples sent v quickly; sent me 2 sizes to try and no postage to return the unwanted coat; free TechWash samples and helpful advice on how to look after the garment. Proper customer service – Thank You

    I’d been looking for a smart mac with a hood for a good few years before I stumbled across this brand. This was EXACTLY what I was looking for. I have worn it in all weathers – it’s light enough for summer wear without making me overheat, even when walking fast, but teamed with warmer under layers, worked for me during the winter too. It has kept me dry in some torrential downpours (water literally pouring off the front of the hood – I was out in it for 20 minutes plus on this occasion and dry as a bone when I took the coat off!!)
    I’d recommend to anyone who commutes on foot. I was almost put off by the price, but can confirm now that after a year of almost constant wear, it was worth every penny!
    Oh – and their customer service team are also great, friendly and helpful – which is sadly an unusual phenomenon these days.

    Lovely waterproof black trench, looks smart on. Very light but warm, however the nude coloured lining makes it look a bit cheaper than it is. Would much better preferred if it was black too.

    I have just bought the mac version and I have never seen such attention to detail. It is so comfortable and looks gorgeous. I love the fact the hood is detachable and can be stowed in a pocket. My only complaint is I would love a really bright colour – purple ideally! Customer service is fantastic too.

    Just wore my new waterproof black trench to work this morning, on my bike. Absolutely amazing! I almost want it to rain in order to fully road test it, but couldn’t resist a quick road test this morning in cold but bright weather. Usually short sleeves (merino top) under a coat as light as this feels, my arms would be too cold at 6 deg, but I was just right temperature wise, and didn’t overheat. I wore with my usual bright red scarf and the whole combo looked really smart on my commute and walking into work. I may finally have found the holy grail of a smart waterproof coat that works on the bike, for which I have been searching for years.

    The only thing I would add for future iterations is either an internal pocket (though it might spoil the lines) or a zip to one of the front pockets, under the flap. The pockets are quite deep but I keep my Travel Pass in there (I do a multi mode commute with a Brompton).

    At last, a stylish waterproof and windproof Mac! It looks smart to wear to the office or on the school and nursery run. Rebecca was an absolute star helping me try different sizes until I happily found the size 3 fitted me perfectly (I’m normally a size 12). Now I need to save my pennies for the city walker jacket! The customer service I received was absolutely top notch.

    I’ve had my mac for almost 2 years now and it looks new despite frequent use. It is lightweight, waterproof, stretchy with a lovely texture. This Mac folds up into a small space yet does not crease. Great for travels and very versatile. Highly recommended.

    This Mac has been the Best Buy of my life! We have had non stop rain here for weeks and I have worn my Mac every day and am loving it. It is stylish, practical and easy to wear. A fantastic coat!

    Had my parka for a couple of years – I live in it! Thank goodness for the Nicwax rejuvenating treatments working a treat. Received many complements, no-one believes that it is a high performance garment because it’s just too stylish. Loving the expanded colour palette, just need to decide on which style next. Keep up the good work Protected Species.

    Lovely rain mac to wear all year round. It’s light but cosy and keeps me dry in our erratic climate. A year on and it still looks brand new.
    I was unsure about sizing and so contacted the company who couldn’t have been more helpful.
    Would recommend without hesitation!

    I am very happy with my Cityscape Blue mac. It’s warm and stylish – just what I was looking for! I can dress it up or down. I am very impressed by how warm it is and I love the waterproof fabric.
    Would definitely recommend!

    Super happy with my Blue Mac – it’s not too bright or electric thankfully and the material is soft and doesn’t feel like a raincoat. Have yet to use it in the rain but I’m sure it’s perfectly fine.
    I wanted something lightweight, waterproof and stylish and suitable for the current warm winter to take the kids to school and work . This checklist proved difficult to fulfil with brands sold in department stores and the high street. Thankfully (strangely) I found a recommendation for this brand on one of the mum sites and am glad I did!

    I absolutely love my Mac. I bought it in blue which is a change from my usual black and have received lots of comments from work colleagues. It’s been up to the challenge of recent heavy rain and kept me lovely and dry. The rain just beads on it. I don’t fasten the belt as the zip and buttons are enough for me. The fabric is so soft and smooth. In summary – it’s fab!

    I bought the Mac in blue. The colour is lovely, smart but a bit different. I have worn it in wind and heavy rain and it has kept me warm and dry. It really is wind and waterproof without looking as though I’m off hillwalking. I love the fact that it feels soft and lightweight – none of the noisy rustling you get with many waterproof jackets. I am a size 10 and the small fits perfectly. On cold, wet winter days I have worn it with an extra layer and it’s been perfect. Overall, probably the best raincoat I have ever had – what’s not to love!

    Bought the Mac in Black and wore it while in New York. I’m delighted as it is light weight, fully waterproof and warm at the same time. It looks chic and I’ve continued wearing it since coming home and am now thinking of purchasing another. All in all a superb buy and well worth the money.

    I love my new mac. Was in desperate need of a smart jacket for walk to work that kept me warm and dry and looked good! The white mac is perfect. I love the hidden zip and the buttons are not sewn on so no risk of losing them! I love the stretch material and it looks so sophisticated. Very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend it!

    Having purchased the parka last year and loved it, I decided to invest in a Mac which I’m sure will become as valuable addition to my wardrobe. I was a bit unsure about buying ‘white’ – though I loved the look of the ‘atmosphere’ wear end mac, however, its actually a very soft, warm, creamy white and very flattering on. There are a lot of macs available in the stores just now but the protected species mac does feel that bit more special. The stretch and the feel of the fabric and the lining set these jackets apart in terms of comfort and practicality – I often roll my parka into a bag ready to whip it out when I need it and it looks just as good. In terms of sizing I usually wear a uk 12-14 and I felt the size 3 was the best fit for me. I would definitely recommend Protected Species as a good investment buy – if it’s going to rain we might as well look good!

    My West End Mac has been my best buy for 2014. I bought it at the beginning of the year and it has been my ‘go to’ coat for Spring, Summer & Autumn. It looks great with everything. Smart enough for meetings, light enough for travel. Keeps the rain off and looks just as good with jeans – love, love love

    I love my West End mac! It’s very smartly cut and thoughtfully designed, as beautiful as any high-end designer trench coat – but far better when bad weather strikes. I especially love how versatile it is, with a belt that can be tied up in back or cinched round your waist, buttons that can be done up or left open, and removable hood. It looks great and is ready for anything!

    My husband bought me my West End mac and I absolutely love it. It’s smart and stylish and has a lovely belt which cinches in your waist. It’s very practical and means I no longer need to use an umbrella which is great. I can dress it up or down with jeans and smart boots or trainers and I wear it to work a lot.

    Mac arrived yesterday and got well tested today with wild wind and rain. It passed with flying colours, I am really impressed that it looks smart for office wear but keeps the rain off for the cycle to the station.

Guarantee & Care

Caring for your new Protected Species jacket

All our garments come with a no fuss 2 year guarantee on waterproof performance – just remember to follow the care instructions to prolong life. We are sure your jacket will last for many years more than that.

The fabric our products are made from is laminated – which means it has an incredibly thin high performance breathable PU layer welded to the back side. The surface of the fabric is also treated with a highly durable water resistant finish which beads water away from the outer surface of your jacket.

All our pieces in our collection are completely safe to wash at30°C. We recommend always washing with NIKWAX® TechWash at 30°C – this will keep your jacket performing well.

After 15 washes we recommend re-proofing your jacket. The laminate will still keep you completely dry and is not affected by washing, but the re-proofing will simply increase the resistance to any water sitting on the surface of your garment. This is the same with all waterproof and breathable garments. We recommend you use NIKWAX® TX Direct Wash-In.

Please tie up all drawcords before washing so they don’t get caught in your machine (inner and hood drawcords).
