The coat was bought to replace a similar one where the zip had broken, and the day it arrived, the heavens opened, so it got a great first work out.
The caped area above your shoulders stops a lot of the rain running down your sleeves and dripping onto your hands. The cape is held in place by a ribbon with a pop-fastener, which means that if I wear the coat, and carry my shoulder bag, they unpop, but not a big deal. Nice deep pockets to put my gloves, doggie bags and keys in, and a soft checked lining. Hood adjusts, it is a little big on it's own, but if I wear a beanie beneath it (which I generally do if it's raining) it's fine. I chose this length as I'm only 5ft 2, and it comes mid-thigh, which means I can climb over stiles without catching my coat on them. The back vent is good, held closed by velcro and I haven't had any problems with it. Storm fastener over the zip is good, nice and wide. All in all, I would recommend this coat.
