Choosing a Ladies Waterproof Jacket

When it comes to choosing a ladies waterproof jacket, there are several options to choose from. Some of these options include Columbia, Thought Clothing, and L.L. Bean. In addition, these brands have a variety of styles to choose from, making it easy to find one that is right for you. Whether you need a jacket for outdoor activities or just for everyday use, you can find a jacket that will fit your needs.

Patagonia Torrentshell

If you’re looking for a durable, lightweight rain jacket that offers great weather protection, you can’t go wrong with the Patagonia Torrentshell. Made with recycled fabrics, it’s designed to be tough, yet it also features all-day comfort and plenty of pockets.

The Patagonia Torrentshell is made with a polycarbonate PU membrane and a durable water repellent finish. Aside from its waterproof capability, it’s also highly breathable. It’s a good choice for most outdoor adventures.

It’s also a good value. At $149, it’s cheaper than a lot of competing models. Plus, it’s made with materials approved by Bluesign Technologies, a Switzerland-based organization that audits and approves the textile supply chain.

L.L. Bean

If you are in the market for a new rain jacket, the L.L. Bean ladies waterproof jacket is a good place to start. While it does not provide the full suite of protection that you’ll find in a department store, it does the trick in the rainy season. Luckily for you, it is available in a variety of colors and designs, so you’ll be sure to find something to fit your personal style. Plus, with an MSRP of only $35, you can get one in your hands in no time at all. It’s worth the wait, though, so make sure you check out this jacket.


The sexiest and most functional of all the waterproof jackets stows away in a well-designed pocket with aplomb. If you’re in the market for a new raincoat, a quick perusal of the Columbia website should have you well on your way to the dry cleaners. To say nothing of the quality of customer service you’ll receive, you won’t find it at any other retail outlet.

You’ll find a plethora of models on offer in the price range of a credit card, but you’ll be hard pressed to find one with less than a two or three stars. Having said that, the oh so hot and humid weather can be a bear. A rainproof coat is the perfect antidote to such conditions.

Outdoor Research Aspire II

The Outdoor Research Aspire II is a premium ladies waterproof jacket that offers water resistance, breathability, and full range of motion. It features a durable construction with a 50-denier (D) plain weave Gore-Tex Paclite fabric. In our tests, the Aspire performed well against heavy downpours and was comfortable to wear.

For an outdoor enthusiast who enjoys hiking, trekking, or camping, the Aspire II is a good choice. It is lightweight and comfortable, but it does have some design limitations. Specifically, the zipper is difficult to use when wearing gloves.

Another design flaw is the lack of a designated stow pocket. However, the jacket’s chest pocket is large enough to hold bulky items. And the hand pockets are large enough for a pair of gloves, snacks, and a key.

Cole Haan

It’s no secret that a plethora of people gracing my dilution in Chicago’s affluent South Loop neighborhood would be awed by the latest and greatest in style and comfort. Luckily for them there is a small but mighty shop whose stockpile of tweed is a veritable gold mine. The likes of a well dressed staffer might be the best suited for any number of ad hoc meetings or errands. After all, you never know when a nudge or two is just around the corner. Thankfully aforementioned affluent and plethora of affluent folks can take advantage of a number of shopping venues and a burgeoning number of hang outs that span the entire spectrum of glitz and glamour.

Thought Clothing

When it comes to waterproof clothing, one company has it down to a science. Thought Clothing has been in business for over two decades and they make it a point to use eco friendly practices in everything from their packaging to their supply chain. Their product line is comprehensive and spans a variety of styles, from rain coats to gilets to shirts and skirts.

One of their more popular pieces of kit is the Ultimate Organic Cotton Waterproof Coat. Its features include a waterproof outer, recycled PET lining and a hood with a matching drawcord. Other nifty items include a hidden zip pocket and a cuff with a second drawcord. The company is also a member of the Ethical Trading Initiative.
