We’re not going to sugarcoat it: rain is useless, especially if you have something to do (like go to the grocery store or walk the dog). But you know what makes a terrible day more delicious? A wonderful raincoat or Rains regenjas and Maium regenjas. From a cheerful, color-blocked anorak to a classic trench you’ll wear for years, here are 17 of the best water-resistant raincoats on the market right now.
Stutterheim Mosebacke Jacket
Why we love it: Fully waterproof, flattering silhouette, built to last.
Since its launch in 2010, Stutterheim has solidified itself as a manufacturer of premium rain jackets or Zwarte regenjas that can truly withstand the elements and the test of time. The Swedish brand is known for its classic, minimalist silhouettes in many beautiful colors, from muted pastels to moody jewel tones to Curious George yellow, and of course, classic black. But the Mosebacke is our favorite silhouette from the brand because of its generous cut (which is perfect for people with wide hips or big butts), and it encourages water to slide away from your legs. The hood also has a drawstring, so you can pick it up tightly around your face to prevent drops from getting into your neck.
The North Face Antora Jacket
Why we love it: Fully waterproof, adjustable hood, made from 100 percent recycled fabrics
Leave it on the North Face for a super cool looking rain jacket that’s also super technical. The Antora is available in ten different colors (some with the contrasting color blocking shown above, others in solid colors), so you can choose one depending on how you plan to wear it, whether it’s for work or for work. Be it more than clothes or in the mountains. As for some more practical specs, the hood and hem are both adjustable with drawstrings, and the front zip, which is closed to keep moisture in, is doubly secured by a placket that hooks and loop panels. Protected by And if that doesn’t convince you, maybe the perfect 5-star rating and rave reviews will do the trick.
3. Lands & Squall Raincoat with Hood
The most comprehensive size range
Why we love it: Available in plus sizes, two-way zipper, and machine washable.
If you want a waterproof topper that will keep you cozy during cold, windy storms, Lands’ End’s Squall Jacket is a great option. It’s lined with fleece, so you don’t need to wear a tiny turtleneck underneath to stay warm, and the outer waterproof layer repels even the heaviest showers. The coat is machine washable (score!) and comes in plus sizes as well as short and long lengths. We also appreciate the high neck and adjustable hood that protect your face and neck, and the three roomy front pockets to store all your essentials.
