Wow, this coat is way better than I expected (and I had high expectations). I had been looking for a natural fiber raincoat since I really don't like wearing plastic clothing and am not into the feeling of wet plastic on my skin. Through researching waxed cotton coats, I stumbled upon Wendy Feller's line of coats. I'm so happy I did! I had a really hard time choosing between all the beautiful designs and colors but with Wendy's help (she was generous with her time), I settled on the Blaine Cargo Parka in dark olive. I love the color, I love the beautiful floral lining (it's really amazing), and the coat itself is far lighter that I expected and very comfortable. I took careful measurements (thanks for making sure I did that Wendy) and found the size that fits perfectly. I know I will be wearing this coat for many years, while gardening, hiking in the rain, cross country skiing, etc. As soon as my partner saw the coat, he asked if there are men's versions! He'll be getting one too. Thank you so much Wendy!
