It is not breathable at all.It's rubber coated, so basically sealed on the outside.That means any perspiration will be trapped inside the coat.My only real negative, cause I'm a big sweater- as in buckets.I just make sure it wear something with wool or keep it light underneath.Otherwise the sweat and moisture can be uncomfortable.
What is everyone's opinion of the Stutterheim Coats?
I personally love mine!
I have never gotten so many positive compliments on an article of clothing before.
Especially from complete strangers off the street.
The standard comment:
"That's a sweet rain coat, where did you get that coat?
Perfect for Raincouver weather!"
They will definitely stretch out.I measure a 38" chest tried on my friends size 38.After about 1 month of wear, it's a slim fit but not uncomfortably tight.I'm jelly though as I don't have a sweater myself.
