Living in the North of England, we get blustery showers in abundance and I always struggle to find coats which are waterproof, windproof and stylish to boot. Protected Species fit that very brief, as I found out this week when they sent me their West End Waterproof Mac. It comes complete with taped seams and stretchy breathable fabric, plus a handy detachable hood which I particularly like. Perfect for impromptu rainstorms on beach trips, or damp and drizzly school runs. You can choose between the mac featured, or Protected Species’ other piece de resistance, their Northern Quarter Waterproof Parka. Either way, you’re onto an all weather winner. In the words of Protected Species, rain on!
