The rainy season isn’t upon us just yet, but it’s coming. Now is the time to think about your rain jacket, not after all the snowflakes transform into globs of H2O. It’s easy to revive a rain jacket that isn’t as waterproof as it once was (read our guide on how to do that here), but if the interior lining is peeling or bubbling and separating from the shell, then it’s time to look for a new one. Thankfully, many of the best are currently on sale as brands and retailers work to offload their wares from past years. Below are four of the best discounted rain jackets we found.
Marmot PreCip Jacket
The PreCip is a well-rounded rain jacket that’s built for the outdoors. It uses Marmot’s NanoPro waterproofing, that won’t have you sweat-soaked at the top of a climb. But if you do get warm, there are also two zippered underarm vents. The PreCip has an Angel-Wing movement design, so the jacket goes unimpeded (and unmoved) while wearing a backpack waist belt.
Patagonia Stretch Rainshadow Jacket
Patagonia constructed the Rainshadow with its proprietary H2No 2.5-layer waterproofing and 30-denier ripstop nylon. It’s lightweight, stretchy and a formidable competitor to Patagonia’s well-known Torrentshell rain jacket.
Outdoor Research Helium Hybrid Hooded Jacket
Outdoor Research used its Pertex Shield+ fabric to make the Helium Hybrid jacket lightweight and water-resistant. Reaching for your next pitch is no issue with the stretchy underarm panels that add breathability, too. When the sun comes out, stuff the jacket into its pocket and keep climbing.
The North Face Allproof Stretch Jacket
The Allproof Stretch is the stretchiest rain jacket we’ve tested yet — it’s as pliable as a latex balloon. It’s slightly less breathable than some of the other rain jackets here, but is equipped with underarm vents to help shed heat, and is as waterproof as they come.
