The Perfect Autumn Jacket


waterproof jacket

*Lighthouse have kindly gifted me a Bowline Jacket for an honest review


There is no doubt about it, gone are the warm summer evenings and hello Autumn, jumping in puddles and crunching through fallen leaves. September has brought a lot of rain with it and as the warm weather starts to drop off it means staying dry is really important as there is nothing worse than being cold and wet. I was recently sent a gorgeous Bowline waterproof jacket from Lighthouse to put to the test and it has been perfect for festivals but it's really come into its own this past fortnight with the constant rain and has prevented me getting soaked on many occasions.

I have tried a variety of outdoor jackets in the past but nothing is as waterproof as this rubberised jacket which is the same fabric as my kids wet-weathers. The jacket is nice and light while still having a soft lined inner fabric and two large pockets to keep everything you need for a day of adventure. What I really like is it's perfect for layering, it's not too think and a jumper underneath keeps me warm and toasty plus with the big hood means I've not even had to take an umbrella on the school runs.

Of course, you don't have to opt for a rubberised jacket, they are slightly less breathable than other winter jackets but good news Lighthouse has something for everyone from full-length raincoats to warm down jackets and cosy sweatshirts for layering. This is actually the second Lighthouse Jacket I've had in the past few years - I still have and use my original one although it's more suited for warmer summer days while this one will take me through Autumn and into winter.

As the Swedes say there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes and it's just so true, you really can enjoy far more time outdoors if you're well equipped for what the British weather may throw your way. I really love my Lighthouse jacket so if you're in the market for well made all-weather clothing then do check out Lighthouse.

  12. I love the colour you got. My son has had a yellow raincoat for years, purposely chosen by me for the colour as it stands out so much in photos. This one sounds great and I love the face you say its not too big and bulky. That's often a worry with new raincoats, especially when you need to factor in a winter jumper underneath.
