REI rain jacket has casual look, but all the bells and whistles you’d want

January 25, 2019

Who says all technical outdoor clothing needs to look like you’re about to conquer Everest? REI’s Greenwoods Rain Jacket ($139) has all the bells and whistles that you want in a fully waterproof coat, and yet it also looks the part to wear anytime you need to venture out in the elements, whether that’s to work or at your kid’s soccer game.

The hip-length jacket features 2.5-layer waterproof and fully seam-sealed fabric to keep out wet stuff, yet it’s breathable and ventilated so that you won’t overheat while out on the trail. The storm hood is adjustable in the front and back for a tight fit, and the cuffs can be adjusted with snap tabs.

High-quality waterproof zippers will ensure that this piece stays in your closet for years, and the relaxed fit allows you to add layers underneath in cold weather. The zippered hand pockets can keep your hands dry when you forget your gloves or carry along necessities on the trail.

Blend in with the natural green color or stand out with the blush pink. Either way, you’ll be dry and comfortable wherever you go.
