Winter Coats

Winter Coats

Has anyone found any good quality winter coats? I live in Wales, UK and it's always wet and windy so one to keep me toasty warm and dry is what I'm looking for as I wanna start walking again 💜

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

Hi, I have a Regatta which is waterproof with a removable fleece lining. Keeps me really toasty in the winter and can be just a raincoat in the summer. North Face are also good, but more expensive.
