Big Disappointment

During last summer I bought the Laugavegur men rain coat in olive color. I was really happy with the purchase, but my excitement ended up with big disappointment when I went for walk with my new rain coat in the rainy weather.
I was walking for about 15-20 minutes in moderate rain, and I arrived home with a soaked shirt (at least only the front of my shirt was wet), and a fully wet coat; both the outside and inside. You can see the result on the attached pictures what I made after my ”test walk”. It is truly clear, that this coat can not handle rain in a way that they should call it waterproof. The welded seams of the pockets on the front leak the water easily, making the inside moist. Furthermore, this situation makes the pockets useless because they can not protect anything from the water and all of your stored gadgets and other things become wet. Luckily I had only handkerchief in them, so did not happen any disaster, just some humid paper pieces. 66 North mentions on the label that some non-welded seams can make the fabric moist on the inside, but these seams are absolutely welded, what should be 100% waterproof, according to the label. In my view the problem is the thread used for the sewing. At other welded seams, where the thread does not go to the outer surface of the coat, I did not perceive any leaking problems. Anyway the plastic coated material seems to be truly waterproof, and dries really quickly on the outside. The inside fabric can hold the moist for hours making the coat really uncomfortable. I am really sorry that this coat does not function as It should be, but I can not imagine how badly would perform in real tough conditions. Maybe 66 North should not write on the label that: “Clothing for tough conditions”. Moreover, in my opinion the hood is so small, It can not in the least protect the face from the rain.
The only reason I give 2 stars instead of 1 is the style of the coat. It looks really nice, and is perfect for walking in the city. But do not forget to bring a real waterproof rain coat with you, if rain is in the forecast!
