Top Five: waterproof jackets

TopmanwatersA light waterproof jacket is fast becoming an essential in this changeable weather. The retro nylon bomber is the easiest style to wear (jacket left, from Topman), it looks good with a variety of looks and dress down tailored shorts if you decide to brave them this summer. American Apparel’s jacket is great for layering, pick an unusual colour like their baby pink or caramel. The most technical jacket is also the most pricey, Addict’s anorak has airholes under the arm so you don’t get too schweaty and stows away in its own little bag. See after the jump for rest of the picks and product links.

    35 pounds? that’s like 60 US dollars for an american apparel…is it more expensive in the uk?

    You betcha! It’s a bit of a sore point in the UK that US goods are often overpriced because of some intangible cachet.
