Eddie Bauer Sandstone Rain Jacket

This is one of our favorite rain jackets. It’s lightweight and shockingly breathable for a waterproof layer. Our tester noted, “It’s the stretchiest, softest, and quietest rain jacket we tested. And with a sub-$300 price, it’s a fair bargain given the market for high-end raincoats.”

The adjustable hood fits with or without a helmet, and the zippered pockets keep essentials dry and accessible.
