Gorgeous Lightweight Womens Jacket from Dare2b

{We received this coat free of charge in exchange for an honest review. 
I have not been instructed what to write}

We all want to be warm and cosy in the winter when the weather is cold, but why is it that warm coats are often so very heavy? At the moment we are in that changeable season where one minute it is 20 degrees and the next it is 16 with a biting wind. So, it's important to have a jacket that can keep you warm when it needs to but is also light and small enough that you can roll it up and tuck it over your bag strap or put it in your bag.

My daughter has found the perfect solution, with the women's Surmount lightweight wool jacket from Dare2B. It weighs just 237g so it is as light as a rain jacket but it is quilted with a thermo-regulating wool fill for warmth and breathability. 

It is currently £83.95 reduced from £120 and is available in two colourways. Pink, grey, white and black or grey, white and two shades of green. I think both look stylish and expensive. The jacket is available in UK sizes 8 - 20. Personally, I think they come up a bit small in size. It's obvious they are supposed to be a close fit, but the arms particularly are very slim fit. My daughter modelling the coat is a size 12 normally and this jacket is a size 18, but my other daughter who is a little bigger than her sister couldn't even get it across her back. 

The coat has been designed for climbers, skiers and hikers but it also would have been perfect for my daughter who completed her Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award expedition a couple of weeks ago. It is polyester ripstop fabric with Iloft Woolfill 20% wool/ 80% polyester padding. There's also a water repellent finish and natural wicking and anti-bacterial odour control properties to the coat.  

The stretch binding to the hood, cuffs and hem is obviously key when the wind gets up and will help keep rain or snow out too. There are two front slant zip pockets for storing your essentials and the front zip goes up nice and high to keep your neck and chin warm. 

My daughter loved this coat as it isn't just the boring black that so many winter coats are. Dare2B has a great selection of jackets in a variety of colours and styles. There are currently windshields from £24 and gorgeous waterproof ski jackets from £35.95, so it's worth having a good look through, as you may be able to bag a bargain.

We found our delivery from Dare2B to be really good, and the coat arrived well packaged. If you spend over £65 UK delivery is free of charge or it is £3.95 for standard delivery, which takes about 3-5 days. I ordered on Friday late afternoon and knew my package would arrive the following Wednesday. There are premium options available though if you need super quick delivery. Dare2B has a 100% guarantee and if you are unhappy with your item you can return it (in the same saleable condition with labels attached) for a full refund. 

It's worth signing up for the Dare2B newsletter and then you'll be the first to hear about any special offers or sales. I see at the moment they have an extra 15% off all running items. Students are also able to tap into 15% off at any time.
