The Merrell Ellenwood Insulated does just what it says on the tin - full insulation from the elements with fully seam sealed waterproof M-Select DRY Shell and M-Select WARM insulation to keep you cosy. Add to that urban style, with long lines and a great flattering fit. With a gorgeous heathered canvas fabric, it has zip-secure, waterproof hand pockets and media pocket carry what you need, and the detachable hood lets you sing in the rain as long as you want. The Ellenwood is based on a previous Merrell favourite - the Wakefield
We say: full insulation and protection from the elements complete with easy care synthetic insulation.

I finally decided to buy this after a year of looking at hundreds of coats online. It is stylish and warm and most importantly waterproof, it's also a good price. If you are looking for something to deal with the rain and chilly days this is perfect. If you need something primarily for extreme cold, get a down coat.
Good bits: the toggles inside which can pull in at the waist to give the coat more shape. The coat is not too boxy and has been cut in a way that flatters the figure. The hood, though not very flattering, does a good job of keeping wind and rain off your face. The only thing I don't like are the sleeves, as there's no way to adjust them. Also they don't have a ribbed cuff, which means the cold could get in. Having said that it does keep you warm!I got a size 12 even though I'm a 10 - 12 and it fits with enough room to wear jumpers enough.

If you want a long coat that is warm and water proof, covers your bumb and can be worn with a suit or jeans this is the coat.
Great for me at work and on the school run.
