Three of the best - lightweight rain jackets

We've showcased spring blazers and jackets earlier on this year, but now the spring showers are affecting us, it's an appropriate time to look at three of the best jackets to protect you from a storm.

While some might be put off by the Nike branding, it's hard to argue that the NSW range is incredibly well done - easy-to-wear basics that utilise the tech-geekery that flows throughout the company's product range. A simple hooded parka like this one (End, £329) makes use of storm-fit fabric, a breathable shell that'll block out the rain and wind whilst not making you feel overly hot (a common problem in older raincoats).


3 Woolrich Rain Shield Jacket (above)

This is decidedly more Eighties than the other two options, but don't let that put you off. This Woolrich number is just as well equipped to deal with a random downpour as the other two. But granted, it's less well equipped to deal with any 'bringing back the shell suit' jokes that may be thrown your way.
