Grown-up raingear isn’t the easiest to find — unless you enjoy wearing a bright yellow rubber-y raincoat. And that’s precisely why this waterproof jacket with more than 2,000 five-star reviews on Amazon is worth bringing to your attention.

Not only do thousands of women love the way this coat looks — it comes in 18 fun seasonal colors, after all — but they also seem to be pleased with how this performs in rainy weather. Don’t let a little rain shower keep you from having fun outdoors!

The Charles River New Englander Waterproof Rain Jacket retails on Amazon for anywhere from $38.97 to $64, depending on what size and color option you choose.


Sizes range from extra small to 3X-large. The jacket also comes in colors such as black, royal blue, tangerine and bright coral, so there’s bound to be a color that will suit your style!

Based on the reviews, people love this jacket for a multitude of reasons. Everything from the color to the water resistance and reflective stripe — a great option if you run or bike outside — get called out in reviews.


Some folks have fallen in love with the jacket immediately:

“This is so darned cute – much more so than I expected when I ordered it,” one satisfied customer wrote. “The construction seems really good, and the reflective stripe is really reflective. Now i can walk the dog in the rain at night and not worry about not being seen.

For others, it’s taken a bit longer to decide if this was the jacket for them or not, but in the end — most seem to really love it. One reviewer who originally gave this jacket four-stars upgraded to five stars after owning it for an entire year:

“I’ve had this jacket now for a year and I’m changing my review from 4 to 5 stars. The questionable zipper has held up perfectly and the jacket itself is perfect; warm, breathable, not too heavy, and durable,” the upgraded review read.


One customer really put the jacket to the ultimate test by taking it on not one, but two hiking trips:

“I have tested this raincoat in two hiking trips in the last four months, and it has worked beautifully. It protects me from the wind (especially if I tighten the sleeves, zip up all the way, and put the hood on), and it stops the rain,” the review read. “I can report back that it perfectly protects the clothes from getting wet, and keeps the warmth very well.”

The few who happen to not like this jacket in the end typically have issues with the plastic zipper and the jacket running a little small — so be mindful of this before committing.

But, the majority of folks who buy this item don’t regret it. So, if you’re looking for a way to stay dry this season while still looking stylish, definitely consider adding this to your cart before making your next Amazon purchase!
