The fall fashion forecast calls for crisp denim dresses, breezy linen tees and slick raincoats to shower your whole outfit in style. But it’s not easy to find practical and affordable outerwear that can weather any storm in life. Meet the NOAH raincoat, a sleek slicker that helps you take a permanent rain check from bad weather and ill-fitting unisex fashion.
The dynamic duo behind NOAH Rainwear was inspired to create their eponymous raincoat after being caught in a torrential downpour without proper rain gear. Frustrated by the flood of impractical and overly pricey raincoats — and the drought in fashionable, functional and affordable jackets — they took it upon themselves to devise a gender-neutral solution to rainy day fashion.
The NOAH raincoat is a far cry from the awkward fit that often accompanies unisex fashion. Inspired by the classic slicker, this raincoat is actually designed to complement the silhouette of both men and women. Whether you prefer a slim fit or room to layer the coat over a sweater, LBD or tailored suit, the detailed sizing guide will help guarantee a perfect fit in rain or shine. Color options like chic navy, black and army green help you make a splash even when the weather is gray.
Unlike conventional coats, NOAH raincoats are made from PVC fabric that is durable enough to even withstand a flood. The magic is in the manufacturing technique, which uses an ultrasonic welding technology to fuse the seams of the jacket and ensure a watertight seal. When it starts to pour, you don’t need to make a mad dash for the car or duck under the flimsy half-hood seen in many raincoats. Just pull over the coat’s wind-resistant, full-sized hood, tuck your hands, wallet and cell phone into the coat’s deep pockets and ride out the storm in style.
If you’re ready to help NOAH Rainwear come out of the rain and into your wardrobe, head over to their Kickstarter campaign and make a pledge of $149 or more to nab a raincoat of your own.
