Hi Tec Urban/Work Raincoat
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: Runs small
What sets this apart from most other urban/work raincoats is that the material is stretchy, which in my book is always a plus and something i seek out. The styling is smart. I think it runs a bit small, and recommend sizing up. I am 5', 100 lbs, 34 c and the small fit well with the ability to layer underneath. I have not worn it in the rain yet. I like alchemy, and think they make nice apparel with a slightly different flair. This jacket is 3 layer pertex, but stretchy, probably the only coat made of pertex with stretch. After gortex, pertex is next best.
Classy yet versatile jacket!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Small
I commute to work (train/walk) and because I live in the Windy City I dislike umbrellas. So I needed a coat both suitable for work (over dresses) and for rain (keep me dry given my anti-umbrella stance). I love this jacket! It's well made, runs true to size (I bought a small, normally wear a small) and looks nice; I am not bashful about wearing it to work, but also wore it to a Big Ten football game in the pouring rain and my daughter's soccer game in sprinkling rain. I stayed bone dry underneath.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
Non-stretchy items in this brand are a little tight on top for their size. This coat was absolutely constrictive in the upper arms / chest (I'm large busted and muscular). The style was not distinctive enough for me to bother with a larger size - especially at this price point. A covered placket and more room across the upper back would make this raincoat a winner.
