It only occurred to me as I shivered my way into the school yard that I didn't have a super warm and snuggly jacket for winter, so when the lovely people at Trespass asked me if I’d be interested in reviewing their Glacial Long Length Down Jacket I obviously said yes.
I hate being cold and nothing makes the school run more miserable than the bitter wind that always seems to whip through the playground, but with my new coat I am as snug as a bug. With a mix of duck down and feather it is a super warm coat.
It comes with plenty of large pockets to keep mum rubbish and keys in and when I lost my gloves last week the two fleeced lined chest pockets on the front were the perfect place to keep my hands warm.
The coat even has inner cuffs to stop drafts from finding their way up your sleeves, the fur lined hood is great for keeping your ears warm and head dry in the rain, although this coat isn't waterproof it is ok for light rain and snow.
I absolutely love the style of the coat, it is smart enough for the school run and trips out to the shops but equally as casual for our days out and visits to the park.
The coat comes in two colours either Black or Khaki, I chose the Khaki for something a bit different and I really like how it looks on. It is also a good length, being tall it is always a problem finding a coat which covers my back, this fits just perfect.
This coat is currently on offer over on the Trespass website for £75.99 which I think really good value and for that you get a lot of coat. It is super warm, looks good and is the perfect winter coat.
I was sent this coat to form this review, all words and opinions are my own. Pictures taken by Max, aged 8.
