Saw this advertised in a leaflet when I was in Lidl earlier! Think it looks pretty nice for the winter (I like puffy coats that cover my bum! And the removable hood and zip-up pockets are perfect for me - I have had a mobile phone fall out a pocket, so always buy coats with zipped pockets now).

  • Water and stain repellent
  • BIONIC-FINISH® ECO technology (see Post #1)
  • With removable hood and faux fur trim

I thought "BIONIC-FINISH® ECO technology" was just Lidl puff-speak but it is actually a "thing"
rudolf.de/en/…co/

"Hydrophobic finishing with BIONIC-FINISH® ECO is based on a fluorine-free recipe. Hyperbranched, hydrophobic polymers with ramified structures like in tree tops orientate in an orderly manner on the textile and crystallise on specifically adusted comb polymers. The optimum arrangement of many of these functional elements is highly effective. Additional boosters (crosslinking agents) ensure the optimum attachment and durability on many fibre substrates.

Bionic is the future! By means of Bionic RUDOLF develops novel, sustainable and ecologically advantageous technologies in the field of hydrophobic finishing. BIONIC-FINISH® ECO combines ecology and trend-setting hydrophobic finishing of textiles.

PROFILE
  • Repels water and aqueous soiling substances
  • Wash-resistant
  • Suitable for all fibre types
  • Durable up to 20 wash cycles (40°C) with final ironing
  • No oil repellency due to flourine-free formulation
  • Not resistant to dry-cleaning Does not impart water impermeability properties (this would require a membrane or coating technology)

BENEFITS
  • No fluorinated compounds
  • Formaldehyde-free
  • Highly water-repellent
  • No significant change of handle
  • Effects are resistant to abrasion and wear
  • Improves the sewability when making-up
  • High wear comfort of sports and outdoor jackets with membrane technology
  • No effect on breathability
  • Already effective when tumble drying after home laundry
  • Cost-effective alternative to fluorocarbon resin finishing"

Not sure I understand much of that, but hopefully the coat is decently water resistant!

Voted hot. My nearest Lidl only gets a dozen . By the the time i reach there all normal sizes are already sold out.

Yeah, my nearest Lidl (that does the Special Buys - Jamaica Street, Glasgow doesn't - they tried for a while but they just don't have the store space) is about a mile away...probably all be gone by the time I make it there Will try to hunt one down next week.

It looks, from pictures, as though the Beige has zipped pockets, and the Dark Blue has buttoned/clip pockets?

lidl - rubbish tat, thrown in the middle of the aisle like a jumble sale - best avoided

Both Boohoo and Joules are so so much better

The only clothes I've bought from Lidl or Aldi have been things like hiking socks, t-shirts, basic items, and I've been very happy. Bit unfair to generalise. Nearly bought Motorcycle Trousers from Aldi last week (not for me). Nothing wrong with them but the recipient wanted the price to dip a bit more (they only had £10 off from the original £69.99).

Both stores tend to get great reviews for their Cycling/Running gear and are pretty sought after, if other forums are any indication.

I have purchased lots from Boohoo (which is, of course, a bargain basement fashion store) and it can be a mixed bag. I prefer Lidl to Aldi slightly, and both stores' customer service is very good, so I'd say if you're unhappy you could probably return it.

I do have Joules' wellies (thanks to HUKD - though mine were £10-odd, unworn and tagged from Amazon Warehouse) that have been on two dog walks so far. Some reviews say they leak after a while - we'll see! Also boot liners which I made into a Deal a while back hotukdeals.com/dea…656 (none left though ).

I'll have a good look at the coat (gonna get the Beige one, as I said last night, I assume that one is the zip-up pocket option) when they're on sale. Currently wearing an M&S coat!

I got one after I came out the dentist's! Yay!

There were hardly any Beige left, quite a few Dark Blue in my store. I'd rather have the 14 as I'm tall and like the extra room for jumpers etc, but 12 was fine in the arms. Material feels nice, quite soft, and the hood is high enough for my torso (some have hoods that don't fit properly over my head as I'm 6' or so).

No Beige coats left by the time I finished shopping and peeked back again. Also got Esmara Shaping Jeggings in Grey or Black (bought both colours) for £5.99 - sizes S 10/12, M 14/16, L 18/20.

Edit: I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Blantyre store miles away and found a Size 16, slightly longer in the body and actually not much bigger in width, so I'm going to take the unworn Size 12 back to my local-ish store, later.

Another Edit: If anyone's looking for a Beige, 12, I returned mine last night, just quickly tried on and still tagged/boxed - Duke Street, Glasgow store.
