No, I have never owned a Grenfell garment. However, a former co-worker of mine had a Grenfell rain coat. It worked well for him in the rain, it was classically styled, and when I inspected it, I was impressed by the workmanship and density of the fabric. It felt as if I was holding quality. I tried it on and it was very comfortable. One if these days I'm going to buy the Grenfell that has the zip-out liner. I'll pay full retail and never look back. As I said earlier, if one can find a cheaper rain coat that fits the bill, great.
