Whether you live in a rainy climate or you’re just suffering through what feels like never-ending spring showers, a really good rain coat or rain jacket is absolutely essential in every woman’s wardrobe. I’m not talking something so delicate that it starts to soak through after a short walk through drizzle; I’m talking a seriously well-made piece of outerwear that will keep you dry during a downpour. And that’s exactly what these women’s rain coats have in common. They’ll protect you from the wet weather elements. The fact that they also happen to look really good on is just an added bonus.

Hunter Original Light Rubberized Smock


If you're looking for a waterproof jacket that marries both fashion and function, this Hunter rain coat is the one. Don't let the sunny yellow hue deter you. Not only is it classic and timeless, but it's the perfect mental trick to brighten your spirits on gloomy, rainy day. Even better, the rubber-touch material is completely water resistant so your clothes stay nice and dry.

Free Country Meander X2O Jacket


There are so many reason I love this Free Country rain jacket, but the number one is that it's truly one of the most waterproof coats I own. As a woman who spends quite a lot of time in the rainy Northwest, this jacket keeps me completely dry. I also love that it's super lightweight, easy to pack and there's a cinch at the waist so it doesn't feel like I'm wearing a tent.

Columbia Arcadia II Jacket


Look across the Web and you'll notice one thing about almost every Columbia rain jacket: lots of four- and five-star reviews. The Arcadia jacket is one of Columbia's bestselling jackets and for good reason. It's fully waterproof, lightweight making it packable and it's also machine washable. That's what we call a raincoat trifecta!
