I train in dressage and just moved to a barn with an outdoor arena. I have to travel an hour and a half for coaching so, rain or shine, we gotta ride. After researching options, I found this raincoat. I like it a lot! It looks very good. It is full coverage. The zipper goes both ways. There are snaps in the back to all room for riding as well as leg straps to keep the length in the right place. I have worn it once in the rain and water beaded up and rolled off. We would call it medium weight in the Deep South ( Georgia) because it is lined, but it would be lightweight further north. I am female, 5’ 5” and 135 pounds. The medium was too large and the small fits fine with plenty of extra room.
