Where To Shop: Our Top 7 Raincoats For Embracing The Fall Weather
Because getting wet is underrated.
Are you feeling it too? Waking up one day into some kind of gloomy dystopia, where the sky looks as if someone turned down the dimmer switch, or thought it would be funny to park a fat-ass UFO between your corner of the Earth and the sun. Not gonna lie, fall felt like a club bouncer coming in to shut down a three-day party – fucking brutal. But alas, summer is indeed gone, so we must pine no more. Instead, we must learn to find joy, not just in jumping into freshly raked piles of crunchy coppery leaves, but in the ominous clouds, the chilly gales and the everlasting rain showers. When was the last time you went out in the rain just to be out in the rain? Getting wet (in the rain, not your panties) is totally underrated, trust us – hey, why not do both at the same time? Here are our top seven raincoats for embracing the fall weather.

Norse Projects Storm Rain Jacket
This PVC jacket by Norse Projects definitely has a touch of the Barbour wax jacket feel – you know, the jackets the English toffs wear when they're out galavanting in the countryside. However, with a relaxed parka-style fit and a toggled hood, this black raincoat has a decidedly more modern feel.

If you're into slightly shorter hemlines, this water-resistant polyurethane-coated jacket is for you. A high neck, concealed drawstrings on the hood and hem, long sleeves and slanted flap pockets will keep the rain at bay.
