Didriksons are a Swedish company who make practical clothing for the whole family, keeping you protected from all the weather that Britain can throw at you! The boy has tried out waterproof coats and trousers from Didriksons and we were both impressed with how good they are. I thought it was about time I tried a Didriksons summer waterproof jacket and chose the Lush Womens Jacket (RRP £140) in Bubblegum.
I must have been feeling brave to choose such a bright colour and the Didriksons Lush coat comes in a great chose of more subtle shades. I wanted a jacket that would be a little longer than waist length as I find on the school run when I do get caught in the rain I end up with a drip line across the top of my legs. The Didriksons range of coats come in different styles and lengths and a range of fun colours.
Didriksons Lush women’s jacket has lots of stylish and useful features. It is an unlined coat so has no warmth layer, but this makes it very practical for the summer as it is lightweight and not bulky to carry. I love all the little details and the Lush jacket has a few different adjustments at the waist and the hem to allow you to fit to your shape. There are also poppers at the cuffs to keep the water out. I selected a size larger than my normal sized clothes (something I have always done) and was pleased with the fit, I like to be able to add a jumper under a coat for those chilly evenings. I was impressed with the number of pockets. The main pockets have a soft lining and are nice and deep. There is an inside pocket possibly for maps or a wallet, and a neat hidden pocket between the outside poppers that you can easily keep your phone or iPod. This pocket even has a clever headphone gap so that you could listen to music while walking.
There have been plenty of opportunities on the school run for me to test out the waterproof nature of the Didriksons Lush jacket and have been pleased that I am staying dry. I found giving the jacket a quick shake, it dried off very quickly. The attached hood and high neck line means that the rain didn’t get into the neck of the coat either. I have had some lovely comments about the styling of the Didriksons Lush jacket, friends have also complimented me on the colour.
