Top 5 Budget Friendly Rain Jackets

Rain jackets are one of those pieces that many companies haven’t figured out yet. Some companies, like Gore or Showers Pass, have the jackets nailed down but you’ll also have a hard time finding them in your local store it seems.

Here is a list of my top 5 budget friendly rain jackets and why. Take note that you can get by with one of the cheap <$40 rain jackets. They are made out of plastic and you will end up wet from all the sweat that forms inside of the jacket.
