Didriksons: new coat for me 

Published May 31, 2016 by Bizzimummy

I have done many reviews for Didriksons and if you have not heard of the brand then they are a Swedish brand specialising in quality outdoor wear. They actually began by producing work wear for fisherman so think waterproofs and wind proofs.

I have up to now, focused on outdoor and waterproof wear for children but this time I was more than happy to try out somethng from Didriksons for myself for a change. They seem to have a lot of choice for women as well as kids and men.  I chose a Lush women’s parka

These coats come with 8 choices of colour. I seem to have a thing for wearing white so I chose heritage white. The sizes are all European sizes but there is a conversion chart. For coats I always go a size bigger so in this instance I got a 38 which is a 12.

The parka is both waterproof and windproof, by windproof I imagine it means that it does not blow all over in a gale and prevents the wind getting under the coat. It is certainly waterproof as I have been out in the rain a few times wearing it. The windproof part, I’m unsure as we have not really had much in the way of storms or gales recently. However despite being a rather lightweight coat it does keep me warm enough.

Several pockets can be found on the coat, a deep ons on either side and 2 hidden pockets further up. There is a pull drawstring to enhance the fit, a large hood and adjustable wrist cuffs.

It’s a good length too being three quarter, falling below my waist but above the knee. Therefore perfect for most seasons and weather types. It’s light enough for Summer rain and also good for over jumpers in the colder and wetter months. 

The full specifications of this coat including warmth ratings can be found on Didriksons website. 

Didriksons products including this lovely coat can be purchased in many sports and outdoor stores across the UK. Prices vary per store.
