Editors’ Pick: The Northh Face Women's Resolve Jacket

The Facts:

  • Wind resistant and waterproof
  • Adjustable hood that stows away in the collar
  • Great for layering

“I bought a version of this jacket years ago and it’s been serving me well ever since. It’s fantastic for hiking or running because it doesn’t make me overheat, but it’s also a lifesaver for a day spent walking around the city. New York City is often too windy to use an umbrella, so a solid jacket that’s also chic is a must. And if it’s raining in the morning and then beautiful in the afternoon (as is often the case in the spring or fall here), I can just tuck the hood into the collar and won’t look totally out of place.” – Abby Hepworth, associate editor

Splurge-worthy: Marmot Essential Women's Lightweight Waterproof Rain Jacket, Gore-tex With Paclite Technology

The Facts:

  • Made from breathable and waterproof GORE-TEX material
  • Longer hem for additional coverage
  • Zippers under the armpits to regulate internal temperatures

If you’re looking to make an investment in a high-quality jacket that’s guaranteed to be waterproof and will last for years to come, then this Marmot number might just be your best bet. GORE-TEX was brilliantly engineered to repel water while keeping you comfortable, so you can really rely on this raincoat. Plus, the longer hem looks less sporty and more city-appropriate than other styles, while also keeping your hips and upper leg dry.

The Facts:

  • Comes with a removable hood

This gorgeous dusty blue jacket combines the timeless style of a classic trench coat with the rain-repelling technology of heavy-duty slickers.

Best For Travel: Ezrun Women's Waterproof Hooded Rain Jacket Windbreaker Lightweight Packable Rain Coats

The Facts:

  • Packs into its own pocket to easily stow in a bag
  • Super lightweight and both water- and wind-resistant
  • Great for outdoor physical activity like running, cycling or hiking

Although this jacket is intended for runners, you can absolutely wear it to take the dog for a walk or to get around the city in an unexpected downpour. The funnel hood can be adjusted with the help of four separate drawstrings to ensure your face (and, more importantly, your hair) is 100 percent protected from inclement weather. There are also additional drawstrings at the waist and elastic at the wrists to further guarantee that not a drop of moisture will somehow find its way under your jacket.
