Most quality 100 percent waterproof rain jackets will run you upwards of $200. Luckily, Amazon Prime has this Marmot Minimalist rain jacket on sale right now. The packable jacket is waterproof and breathable so it’s perfect for those terribly humid, rainy days (like today). All of the seams are taped to keep droplets from slipping inside, and when it gets too hot, you can unzip the vents under the arms to let in a light breeze. It’s not a tight fit — Marmot describes it as relaxed in the shoulders with a straight hem. The Minimalist jacket is the rain jacket you’ll reach for at the last minute when you know it might rain, but don’t want to carry a heavy trench coat. It’s ideal for biking, hiking and cycling, but works for the city dweller as well.
While I have no intention to sleep in the office to wait for it, if I order right now, I can save over $75 and stash it in my office drawer until the next big storm. Smart, right?
