Last year was a record-setting year for rain across the United States, with eight states posting their rainiest years ever.
And 2019 seems to be keeping up the pace. California’s recent superbloom is a direct result of a particularly rainy start to the year. In fact, the state is almost completely drought-free at the moment; it’s even seen more rain this year than Seattle.
Begs the question: Is your raincoat getting the job done? Its workload is unlikely to get any easier going forward. If not, we recommend paying a visit to Backcountry, which is selling the Patagonia Stretch Rainshadow Jacket up to 45% off.

The Rainshadow is available in Black (all sizes) at 30% off, and in Balkan Blue (M-XL) at 45% off. It’s yet another high-performance Patagonia product that didn’t skimp on the details. Look to the outer H2No shell, which manages to be both water-repellent and breathable (so you won’t sweat like crazy once the rain stops and it’s just humid out). Or, consider the drawcord-adjustable hood, which fits snug over a helmet, allowing you to bike to work in the rain. Plus, it offers roomy chest pockets and underarm ventilation zippers, and can easily fold down into a backpack.
