Shopping for rain jackets is a little tricky. Meaning: One wrong purchase and you end up resembling poor little Georgie in IT, looking unfashionable in addition to being susceptible to consumption by clown. A good raincoat is, obviously, big enough to cover your body and keep you dry, but also will have you looking good enough that you’re comfortable layering it over the outfit you wear when you’re not in the middle of a torrential downpour. Unless you own the world’s largest golf umbrella—which you shouldn’t be carrying outside of the golf course—you probably need one. That’s why we rounded up your 13 best bets here.
