Decathlon Triban RC500 Rainproof jacket — £39.99
The smart-looking RC500 is well cut from a stretchy waterproof, windproof and breathable fabric. David Caudery/Immediate Media
Decathlon’s Triban RC500 Rainproof jacket isn’t the best option for truly awful conditions, with a hydrostatic head of just 8,000mm, but for £39.99 at RRP it’s hard to complain. It really looks and feels like a jacket that should cost much more.
For a budget option, this would be our go-to.
Trespass Qikpac Waterproof Jacket – £27.78
Grab a packable waterproof for as little as £15.61. Trespass
If you don’t want to spend a lot and just need something for the occasional light shower, then this packable rain jacket from Trespass is currently being sold on Amazon for just £27.78.
It features a full-length internal front storm flap, a PU coating and comes in a unisex fit and a wide array of colours.
Altura Firestorm –
The Firestorm is a lightweight small-packing waterproof with taped seams. David Caudery/Immediate Media
Despite its namesake, the Altura Firestorm’s modest specs won’t set the world alight, but equally it won’t burn a hole in your wallet at just £51.99 currently at Cyclestore.
The jacket’s clever reflective print makes the whole thing glow like a beacon when light hits it at night, improving visibility.
dhb Aeron Storm FLT –
The Aeron Storm is dhb’s top-end waterproof. Wiggle
At £90, the Aeron Storm FLT is probably pushing the definition of the word cheap, but this is still a £60 saving over RRP for a truly top-end jacket.
Available in either black or a fluro yellow finish, the jacket is said to be highly breathable with a 45,000mm hydrostatic head.
Funkier Protekt Stowaway rain cape –
This jacket is a valuable first line of defence. Merlin
This ultralight transparent rain cape from Funkier… well, it isn’t actually waterproof, but as an ultra-lightweight first line of defence that you will likely find is surprisingly effective against rain- and wind-chill, this could be £14 very well spent.
