When I was recently contacted by Trespass and asked if I would like to review one of their products I instantly said yes. We are an outdoors family so this suited us right down to the ground. I decided to go for something for myself as both boys have coats and I really needed a good waterproof for our days out and for the school run. I have been banging on to my husband about wanting a new coat for a while so he was happy with this as it shut me up lol!
I decided to go for the Florrissant Waterproof Jacket in Black Iris as I wanted something that would keep me dry but also not make me too hot. This also appealed to me as even in cold weather, once I have been walking a while or running after my two I get quite hot but when it's a little chilly outside or raining, taking my coat off isn't an option.
The coat arrived and I wasn't disappointed. The colour was great and I loved the little bit of pink detail, made it that bit more girly. My old waterproof was bright pink so this being more reserved was something I liked. It fitted perfectly.
The coat has a few different zip pockets which are great for people like me that like to store things, mostly random rubbish, and they were a great size. The two pockets at the bottom were ample size and my phone fit in there perfectly and I could still zip them up to keep my phone safe.
Since the coat arrived I have basically worn it everyday as it is so practical with the weather how it has been that it looks good as well as keeps me dry in the lovely rain showers that we have been getting. It also kept me nice and warm when the weather was a little bit on the chilly side but I also didn't get too hot when it was raining but warmish out.
It kept me nice and dry through the showers that I have worn it and the hood is also ample size. I have found with previous coats that I have owned that the hoods have been too small so when the rain comes it keep the back of my head dry but my fringe and face get wet. The hood can also be folded away when you don't want it.
All in all this is a brilliant coat for the season that we are just entering and I can see it being a very durable coat so one that will be an old faithful one for years to come.

I really like the style and colour of that coat, it really suits you! I actually have a Trespass jacket too which is bright pink but I like that, my other coat is kind of army green so I like having something colourful for when I'm in a cheerful mood! x #TwinklyTuesdayReplyDelete

Looks very stylish. I haven't come across Trespass. Will have to investigate as my coat could do with replacing #TriedtestedReplyDelete
Hi Kirsty, I'll have to check it out as I need a good waterproof jacket that's not too warm. The jackets I have at the moment are like greenhouses and leave me uncomfortable and damp when I get too hot.ReplyDelete
Love this jacket and a great review, the pink really makes it stand out from other similar jackets I can see why you have worn it almost everyday. I will be considering them when I next need a new one. Thank you for joining us at #BloggerClubUK hope to see you again this week xReplyDelete
I swear by my The North Face Women’s Resolve Jacket which I really love. It's lightweight, waterproof and breathable. The gorgeous and tapered design is incredible and more than that, it's also very affordable. My sister on the other hand loves her Columbia Women’s Arcadia II Jacket. Both jackets are of quality brands that are trusted by many. For great reviews, see: http://backpackingmastery.com/top-picks/best-womens-rain-jacket.htmlReplyDelete

Women have the risk of getting a heart disease more than men do, so it is important for her to do certain exercises more than men do to prevent getting a heart-attack. A boot camp concentrates on cardio-vascular exercises so it is highly useful for a female. Full Face snorkel mask reviewReplyDelete
