Hooded Quilted Car Coat with Stormwear™
Lovely school coat
The coat was lovely for my 4 year old daughter . She's used it since September for starting school, the disappointing thing is, is since the colder weather has come it isn't very warm for her to use for school. So I'm having to buy her a new warmer winter coat, as this coat isn't quilted inside. Lovely coat but not suitable for the winter!

A good school coat
This coat is an all-round good school coat with a hood, and fits my daughter well. Following a problem with a seam, I returned the coat and exchanged it for another, which has been perfect. I found it difficult to find a navy coat suitable for secondary school, so well done M&S!

Stormwear washed off
Bought 2 of these coats for my daughters for school for autumn and spring or rainy days. After the first couple of wears my younger daughter wiped her nose on the sleeve and I had to wash it and the next time she wore it she got wet. I am awaiting a reply from M&S to recommend a product to make the coat water repellant again. Assuming we can re-instate the water repellant this coat will be great. They love them for school and they could be great practical coats for autumn and spring.

Good transitional coat
Bought this at my daughter's request - she is going up to yr 7 (senior school) and wanted a more grown up coat and apparently they all wear this type of quilted jacket. Her purple puffy one from last year was not going to cut it! She is nearly 11 and slim and petite for age - not yet 140 cms. We dithered over the 9-10 or 11-12 and ordered both and tried them on. Although I was tempted to go for the bigger one for ample growing room, it really did drown her. The arms especially were very long. So we went for the smaller one. Made her try it over big new school sweatshirt and still fit fine. Good quality coat, not that thick, won't be warm enough in mid-winter but will probably be fine for 85% of the winter in SE England! The only thing is it doesn't have a zip, you have to do up the poppers which was a bit of a pain but she wasn't bothered. Some of them in this style have both zip and poppers.
