So I’m a huge fan of raincoats and rain jackets, not only do they keep that great outfit perfectly dry (unlike umbrellas), they also are a style statement during the monsoon. The functionality of a raincoat is obvious, from allowing you to walk with ease in windy rain, to sitting in rickshaws and places where the seat may be wet without a problem, to continuing your outdoor workouts and finishing all your daily tasks in comfort. Umbrellas don’t hold up too well when its really pouring or windy, and we all have moments each year where we get completely drenched on the way to something important. If you really want to protect yourself, I’d suggest going all out with an umbrella, raincoat, and gum boots. Otherwise when it’s lightly drizzling or there’s erratic rain throughout the day, opt for a cool and practical rain jacket. But with a slew of tacky plastic raincoats all over the place, which one should you buy? Ive decoded it all, just for you! Here are my top 10 picks for the best raincoats available in India. No more damp clothes and miserable mood!
