The Perfect Summer Rain Jacket

Reviewed by GearChic from Philadelphia on Wednesday, July 15, 2015
Moving from the West Coast to the East Coast has changed the way I dress. Namely, how I dress when it's raining! I'm used to cold and wet weather, not HOT and wet weather. I needed a lightweight, Gore-Tex rain jacket that would also look good with my work clothes. I like how this one is styled, but moreso I really really love Gore-Tex rain gear. It's going to offer the most breathability for hot weather. I especially love the wire that runs through the hood so it stays open while raining! A few other perks: big pockets on the outside to hold your wallet, phone, keys and more. Plus another big one on the inside left. It's not a winter or fall weight jacket, you will definitely need to wear a really heavy, insulated midlayer to stay warm in chilly temps.
If you're looking for a summer rain jacket, this is it. Somehow I scored 75% off during one of the recent sales, so for that I'm even happier. The sizing is regular fit, not super slim european fit but not full american fit either. I ordered a 36 and it fits perfect. I'm normally a US Dress 4, 35" bust and 29" waist. This jacket leaves me room for a sweater or midlayer. I didn't want a super tight fit, this gives me a wonderful regular fit.
