Perfect light raincoats for travelling and festivals are in abundance this gloomy British summer! It’s a case of return of the mac. It’s been a while since raincoats or macs have been ‘cool’ – always shunned to those spotting trains on platforms or those who spend their lives walking dogs on the moors – but now it’s time to wear them loud and proud.
On our recent trip to St-Malo, we kept our eyes glued to the weather forecast and constantly refreshed our little iPhone screens: “Oh it’s sunny! Wait, now there’s a lightning bolt… Ah, cloudy with sun? Nope, just grey. Aaaand back to rain”. Yes, the coast of Brittany has weather as fickle as the UK. The temperatures weren’t to be a problem, but I just couldn’t take any chances with the rain, especially as we had plenty of outdoors activities in the little seaside town. I bought my first light summer raincoat and wore it proudly aboard our Brittany Ferry, channelling my inner sailor.
With a plethora of raincoats in cool colours with brilliant linings available, you are positively spoilt for choice and are guaranteed to never feel an ounce geeky in these very cool waterproofs. Whether you’re in need of a raincoat for the upcoming festival season, you live in England and have to ALWAYS BE PREPARED all year round, or if you’re heading off abroad and need a light rain mac to roll up into your suitcase, we’ve got you covered.
