When packing for a cruise going into the Highlands of Scotland and along the coast of Ireland, there was no question what coat I would take. The KÜHL Lena trench coat is so versatile and with the peached and waxed fabric, I knew it would take me from cool deck walks to colder wet excursions. The lightweight, packable style makes it an ideal travel take-along. With a hood that is invisibly zipped into the collar, the day we were exploring the Isle of Man with torrential rain, the slim hood made a quick exit as needed. Every time I wear this coat, I am showered with compliments and questions about what make it is. The details of the fit are what makes it so stylish. One friend walking behind me kept muttering about “coat envy.” Adding to the enviable look is the fit. An internal draw cord adjusts at the waist for a superb custom fit. Two zippered chest and hand pockets were very useful to keep hands warm in the biting chill of the Irish coast, and storage is secure when you only want to take along a cell phone. I am a big fan of details, and the zigzag stitching enhances the flattering lines, as well as reflective ribbon adorning on the inside placket for visibility. It all adds up to the most stylish yet functional coat I have ever owned.
