- Wantdo Double-breasted Trench Coat in a Nutshell
Disclosure: Ad. The red waterproof women’s double-breasted trench coat is a sample of my choice from Wantdo. The post is not endorsed by them. I wrote it entirely myself and it represents my own 100% honest opinion.
A Good Quality Coat Is an Investment
In Alaska, you need active performance wear is durable and can handle the harsh environmental and weather conditions. In the rain season (August), waterproof wear is a Must-have. At high relative humidity and temperatures around the freezing point in the morning and 50F (10oC) at local noon, require good insulation for thermal comfort. Walking the dog and occassionally having to climb over a downed tree on the trails or setting up measurement equipment, take readings in a weather hut, etc. requires a coat that permits movement. At the same time, you want to look stylish. Thus, the Wantdo waterproof women’s double-breasted trench coat seemed to be a good candidate for activities like this. Therefore, I picked it in red for this review to see whether it is a good quality coat worth the investment.A smart coat is one of the first essentials of a good outfit. - Woman’s World magazine, April 27th 1940 #quote #Wantdo Click To Tweet
A Trench Coat That Makes a Great First Impression
When the package arrived, I wasn’t disappointed by my choice. This trench coat has the key elements of a traditional trench. The red is bold and clean. No gray undertone. This means it is perfect for me as a deep Autum/Winter. Note that this waterpoof trench coat is available in the classic neutrals like black, khaki, navy, beige, red wine and gray as well as in red, light blue and pink. You can also order it in black-and-white houndstooth. Sizes range from XS to 2XL. I ordered a size S in red, and it is a perfect fit even with a thick sweater.
This means there is a flattering color for every woman no matter of age and size.
This fully lined trench coat came with an extra button. Everyone who once had to exchange all buttons of a coat due to the lack of an exact match will love this extra. However, when looking at how well the buttons are sewn on, I don’t expect to need the spare any time soon.
Stylist tip: When a garment comes with a spare button, put it into a secure pocket of the item so you can find the button when you need it.
