Burberry Brit 'Balmoral' Packable Trench
I bought this trench coat in black 10 days prior and I like it so much, I bought this new one in the tan color. They coordinate all my clothes colors perfectly.
I am a size 8, but I had to get a size 10. It fit a bit small otherwise, especially around the shoulders. The fabric is lightweight, good quality, and very comfortable; perfect for traveling, driving in the car, or carrying it in case it rains. It does not feel like "plastic", like some other raincoats do. And it's washable!
The hood is my favorite. It is beautifully designed to enhance the coat, yet you can easily remove it. The collar has a perfect strap to hold the hood in place in case it's windy. A fine British touch!
I am enjoying rainy days a lot more now that I can wear these two beautiful Burberry raincoats, and the hood keeps my hair perfect!
Cute if you don't plan on using the hood!
This coat runs true to Burberry's size chart. I'm 5'2, 110lbs, and ordered the size 4. I knew it wasn't lined and I wanted a bit of room for layers. The poly fabric is nice, designed for wet weather (which is what I wanted); but may seem a bit out of place on sunny cooler days.
I like everything about this coat, with the exception of the hood; which looks great from the back when not in use; the snap tie closure is very stylish. However, if you plan to use the hood, beware you might look like the Flying Nun. I tried it several different ways, but its so big that it needs to remain folded (even with the snap closure removed) or else it will cover your eyes (and I have a fairly large head). I want a hood that is usable so I don't need an umbrella. I wouldn't be caught dead wearing this hood on my head!
great fitting trench. The quality is amazing and best of all it comes with a hood in case of rain. It was a little snug but if I ordered a 4 ( i ordered a 2) , the sleeves would have been too long and too big in the waist.
I was very excited to receive this coat yesterday and to my dismay, it was not fully lined! One of the descriptions was that it was fully lined and thats one of the main reason why I bought this coat. No question this coat will be returned ASAP.
