It’s been pretty clear skies here in San Francisco, but friends of mine back east tell me it’s still raining where they are. If the weather is still wet in your town, and you’re in need of an affordable raincoat, let me recommend the best one I know of: LL Bean’s Trail Model Rain Jacket. It’s simple, classic, and works really well if you have a certain American sense of style. You know – khaki chinos, oxford cloth button downs, Shetland sweaters, Bean boots, and the like. This ”Trail Model” jacket is made of rip stop nylon; has adjustable, Velcro cinch cuffs; and even features taped, waterproof seams. It’s great for casual, wet days, and best of all, it’s only $79.
I have this jacket (or something very similar), in that green color. It works and looks great.
