Do you keep falling on your arse on slippery surfaces? The neighbour's kids have kicked the football again on your yard and you forgot the knife into the other trousers? Fear not, here's the solution!

One of the coolest trench coats ever, a massive, manly waterproof overcoat for Swiss army motorcycle riders. A very well made piece, as tends to be the case when it comes to Swiss stuff.

This coat is designed to protect motorcycle riders from both what falls from the sky and the junk thrown up from under the wheels. The long hem can be opened up and wrapped around the legs, which helps when moving around or sitting on a bike. The upper back and shoulders are covered with a separate flap which can be partially opened, under which are two mesh covered ventilation holes. Some of these are supplied with a removeable wool liner, but this is not a promise.

The outer shell is made of tough, rubbery, almost faux leather style fabric. The liner - if present - is fine wool, don't throw these in the washer if you know what's good for you. If needed, wash the liner by hand in mild water.

Size info

Sized according to the usual European system, there are no separate lengths, these seem to fit rather well on someone roughly 175-185 cm tall. These are just slightly oversized, which, in this case, is a good thing.

Condition

Used, but still perfectly serviceable. May smell somewhat rubbery, airing out helps. For a motorcycle enthusiast this is a great deal, and these coats are getting quite scarce.

Will keep you dry and clean but it was bigger than expected, don't think I got the measurement wrong. Overall just too heavy and the smell never went away. Resold quickly.

The positive:

Impenetrable to the elements and very old school.
Road dirt washes of in the shower.
Swiss quality - this coat will outlive me.

The less good:
It's fucking hot when the sun is out or the temperature is above 15 degrees.
Smells like old military stuff. Aired out after about two years of use.
