I was looking for a lighter weight jacket, I bought the commuter in burnt orange. This is a quality jacket the perfect fit performs really well, I like the pocket venting and the hidden hood arrangement as well as the beautiful colour it’s perfect! Worn on a number of occasions and I continue to be impressed with it.

I’ve never spent so much on a coat in my life but I’m so glad I did! The “Commuter” is fantastic – it’s truly waterproof and wind proof, cosy and warmer than I expected. You can just shove it in a bag and it doesn’t crease. It’s very stylish and looks good with everything. The fabric feels lovely, and amazingly, dog hairs just seem to fall off (Very important when you’re wearing black!)
I love the slim sleeves and the ability to adjust the fit at the wrist.
My only wish would be that the hood could have some method of adjustment at the crown as it tends to fall over my eyes and I have to turn the front edge back.
I’m a size 10 at the top and 12/14 at the bottom and the size 2 fits fine.
I would definitely buy another in a different colour, just not sure which.
Customer service is excellent! Thank you

This is my go to coat – it’s uber stylish, beautiful colour (olive), hangs beautifully – quite frankly it makes me feel amazing when I wear it. Like the other reviewers I get a lot of compliments and am always delighted to let people in on our little secret ? Oh and it’s waterproof as well with roomy pockets – what’s not to love! You won’t regret buying this piece….

Love my black commuter. Great coat, no idea how I managed without it. I got it last year and have worn it almost daily right through the mild winter we just had. Have been in complete downpours and stayed dry. It’s coming in handy this summer too! Only now am seeing the waterproofing start to fail a bit. Am looking at whether I need to re-proof. Customer service was brilliant. Size wise though it’s been a challenge. I am 5’4” with boobs so am usually a 14. Ordered the 12-14 and no joy so had to go for 16-18 which is too big nearly everywhere especially the length of the arms. Commuter is quite straight cut and those super stylish narrow sleeves have to be rolled up on me. However the joy of having a really properly waterproof jacket outweighs the niggles every time. Going to try the Mac next…in the meantime make a commuter for men. My other half would love that.
