These garments are available in neutral or bright colours, the latter being a great safety precaution when conditions are wet and visibility is poor. Not only are waterproof jackets cheap to buy, they will also stand the test of time. Polyester wears extremely well, maintaining its shape and tending not to wrinkle, leaving a 'good as new' look even when machine washed or dry-cleaned.
Another advantage of the rain jacket, over fleeces and other coats, is that it is very lightweight and easily rolled up, taking up very little space. This means it can be carried while out and about with little inconvenience and then whipped out when needed.
Cheap waterproof jackets are available in a range of sizes. Customers have the option of choosing a larger size and then being able to add warm clothing layers underneath, for the ultimate protection in all weather conditions.
Budget waterproofs offer many of the same benefits as more expensive coats. They can be adjusted for a snug fit with toggles and also have handy pockets to keep precious possessions safe and dry from the rain. When combined with waterproof trousers, the wearer will have the ultimate rain protection.
