Back in the day, we’ve all suffered because of those ugly raincoats that were forced onto us by our dear parents on rainy days. It turns out raincoats are quite useful, especially when you have your best clothes on and don’t want them to get soaked.

We picked out some rather stylish and sporty raincoat brands which will not only help you protect yourself {and most importantly, your clothes} from the rain, but also help you forget those ugly raincoat days.
