Per Una Detachable Hood Parka with Stormwear™
I bought this online and it is a nice light colour and well made. However the pockets are horizontal and as this is a Stormwear parka I would expect to wear it in the rain. The rain would run down the front of the parka straight into the pockets which are thin nylon/ polyester material unlike the parka - hence the wet would seep through. The hood would also be hard to keep on in windy weather as no ties or fastening. I live near the coast!
For these reasons I took this parka back to my local store and came home with an Indigo waxed cotton jacket which has flaps over the pockets and a hood with ties, which is more practical.

Itr's Pistachio Not Stone
This mac is exactly the same as the strawberry offering so all reviews should be the same. Please note that this is more of a pale green pistachio then a stone colour which could suggest a beige/cream colour. Once again there are NO TIES on hood so it won't stay up by itself. M&S are getting there with these stormwear jackets but still need a few more additions to make them 10 star!!
