The rain is back.
Good news for the flowers.
Good news for the state.
Good news for everything except your chances of staying dry.
Which is why we bring you this collection of jackets, tailor made for every level of preciptation.
From mists to downpours to the occasional sunshine reprieve, we've got you covered.
Precipitation level: Downpour
Jacket: Triple Aught Design's Stealth Hoodie LT | $475
The key to a comfortable waterproof jacket is breathability — and the Stealth Hoodie makes use of Swiss Schoeller fabric, which acts as a weather-resistant "membrane" that opens and closes as the temperature changes.
Precipitation level: Steady
Jacket: Mission Workshop Orion Waterproof Ultralight Jacket | $445
This is made for being outdoors in terrible conditions, with underarm vents, sealed zippers and Polartec fabric engineered to be light and breathable.
Precipitation level: Drizzle
Jacket: K-Way Men's Waterproof Jacket | $54
The K-Way is light enough to stow away in its own pocket, but heat-sealed seams keep water out, while a vent in the back improves breathability.
Precipitation level: Mist
Jacket: Mollusk Parka | $165
Wrap yourself up in this after a morning surf — the Thinsulate lining is there to provide serious warmth.
Precipitation level: None at the moment
Jacket: Golden Bear's The Soma | $975
Take advantage of a sunny spell to pull on this perfectly distressed leather moto jacket, with a well-judged selection of pockets and band collar. Don't worry — it gets S.F., as proven by the existence of a plush quilted lining.
