We've now come to the point where a lightweight rain jacket won't do anymore. It's time to up the ante in the coat stakes, which means putting down a little more money than you usually would. Don't worry, this jacket by venerable British label 6876 is worth it.
Collaborating with Japanese label Cash Ca, 6876 have reproduced one of their most popular styles, the Capandula jacket.
And why is it so good in the rain? Maybe it's the taped seams, which ensure so rain enters your jacket.
Maybe it's the herringbone cotton membrane polyurethane laminate duplex fabric (try saying that quickly) which acts as a shell against the rain while avoiding that 'stuck in a heated lift' feeling other rain coats feel like.
It's not so brightly coloured that it isn't wearable to the office either, so it'll be your go-to coat when the rain arrives. Which, by the looks of it, will be every other day.
