Jacket specific size guides

Our collection is dual sized but 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).

If in doubt, please refer to the charts below or drop us a line and we will come straight back.

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.

    I ordered a Parka in the sandstone colour, I love it! I’m 5’3 so it’s a bit longer on me and the sleeves slightly long but not overly so. Beautiful fabric and very lightweight. Haven’t worn it yet as we are having incredible weather, highly unusual for us!

    I have been eying up the Parka for about a year and after finally buying it over the weekend it landed on my doorstep this morning!!!
    The quality of the fabric and design is quite simply exceptional. It’s the perfect, lightweight waterproof…I just need this hot weather to pass so I can wear it!!!

    I have just taken delivery of this beautiful parka!! I don’t know why it took me so long to order one….the fabric is beautiful and the quality excellent. It is a product that I have recommended to friends….who were equally delighted with it and are going to order also, after seeing mine.
    The City Walker next on my list!!
    Customer services are both friendly and extremely helpful, which made the whole experience a 5 star. Keep up the good work, it’s appreciated.
