When the skies open, the right jacket can mean the difference between living high and dry and looking like a wet rat. We very much favor the former condition — and the following discounted options will ensure it. They all feature top-end waterproofing and savings of $50 or more to keep rainy days from getting you down.
The North Face Apex Flex GTX Rain Jacket
Save $57 on this bombproof seam-sealed GORE-TEX 3-layer shell, featuring a soft woven face and knit backer to keep you comfy, plus pit zips for ventilation when you need it.
Save $65 on this Gore-Tex PacLite option that boasts a clever feature: The TorsoFlo double-sliding side zippers open all the way from the hem to the biceps, effectively turning this jacket into a waterproof poncho.
Save $50 on a jacket that includes Columbia’s answer to Gore-Tex, OutDry, plus and OutDry Extreme. This totally recycled jacket also features taped seams and an adjustable storm hood while weighing in at less than a pound.
