Winter Coat

After searching for a new winter coat, I finally found this khaki one in Decathlon. I’d been on the look out for something waterproof and warm in preparation for our upcoming visit to the UK. Not only are we travelling to England, but (for the first time ever) we’re headed even further north and will be spending a few weeks in Scotland! I can’t wait.

So a very warm and waterproof jacket was necessary. Living in bonnier climes, it can often be quite difficult to find warm and waterproof items, so when we headed up to Lisbon a couple of weeks ago, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to try and find my new coat. I got lucky the first store we visited. Decathlon is probably one of the best sport shops we have here in Portugal. They have shops all over the country but my closest (Portimao), doesn’t stock anywhere near as many as the massive stores that can be found around Lisbon. It is possible to buy online but I couldn’t buy a coat without trying it on.

The one I chose is in one of my favourite colours (you’ve probably noticed I have a bit of a penchant for khaki! Here, for example and here.) And, although it is perhaps a little shorter than I would have liked (and another bugbear of mine – the hood is non-removable), it is super comfortable and lightweight.

I have other winter coats (non waterproof ones) that are stylish but are so heavy that they sometimes give me shoulder ache! I hate that. So this was simply perfect. And it didn’t break the bank too. At 70 euros, I thought it was very affordable for a coat that should last me years.

No doubt you’ll be seeing this winter coat a lot over the next couple of months while I’m away!
