My winter coat is a big, chunky Trespass rain jacket. It’s really warm, keeps the elements out and has a decent hood. It’s perfect for the school run. When Trespass contacted me and asked me if I wanted to try out something from their range I knew I was going to choose a lightweight rain jacket. Let’s face it the British summertime is often quite wet and I needed something to keep in the buggy ready for those too often rain showers.
I went for this Qikpac Waterproof Jacket in black with a great green trim. Its comes in a little bag so you can pack it away and it doesn’t take up too much room.
It is waterproof, windproof and breathable. It has elasticated cuffs which stops the rain traveling up your arms and a really good hood with toggles so you can make it super waterproof.
The pockets are a really good size and have zips, handy if you forget your glasses case and need somewhere to store them *ahem*
My rain jacket has had quite a good few uses in the past month and has been around the country! It has been on countless school runs and been used far too many times for June. It was in my bag for Britmums Live & Blogtacular and even travelled to Scotland with me to see AC/DC.
It got a good testing in Glasgow as I waited in rain for over an hour for a train and then the same again for a taxi. When I got back to then hotel I was still dry and my jacket has dried out by the morning.
This jacket is unisex I found out in Glasgow when my dad turned up in the same jacket. Yes we were in matching jackets and we rocked them!
The Trespass Packaway Rain Jacket is currently £24.99 and is a must for the summer. It comes in seven different colours and is really good quality. I’m getting OH one next.
Trespass has a great selection of rain jackets, hiking wear and waterproof clothes.
