Charles River Apparel Rain Jackets

Charles River Apparel Rain Jackets (New Englander, Watertown, Nor’Easter)

Unless you are dancing in the rain as intentional and frolicking activity as might be portrayed in the movies and lived out in reality by your children, most people really do not like to get wet. A rain jacket, sometimes called a raincoat, is typically made of one or a blend of fabrics like polyester, nylon, rayon, and even other fabrics, and specially treated to repel water to keep you dry in wet weather, while still providing some breathability. As such, no jacket is 100% waterproof unless it is made of a non-porous (and non-breathable) material like rubber. A rain jacket is often used as the outermost layer or shell to participate in the protection from the rain, but also to help keep you warm by giving you the opportunity to adjust your temperature as desired, by adding or removing layers. And yes, style is always a consideration today and for that reason, Charles River Apparel rain jackets include multiple styles that come in multiple colors for men, women, boys, and girls, (and even a doggie rain jacket) with each rain jacket yielding its own unique look and style for individual preference and protection from rain.

To help you in your investigation as to which rain jacket may be best for you, we have provided a brief summary of our best Charles River Apparel rain jackets and a link to a more in-depth overview of the key performance, functionality, and fashion features of these popular jackets.

Charles River Apparel has three different styles of rain jackets that area 100% waterproof. The first one being the New Englander which is by far the most popular rain jacket made by Charles River Apparel. The second most popular one is the Watertown and lastly the Nor’Easter.

New Englander Rain Jacket

There are two main reasons why the New Englander Rain Jackets are the most popular rain jackets made by Charles River Apparel. First, there is a style for the whole family – Men, Women, Youth (teens), Children’s and Toddler’s – There is even a Doggy Rain Jacket 1099! Second, is because of the design of the jacket.

Additionally, the Women’s New Englander style is available in standard colors, Block Colors, Floral Printed, Floral Printed lining, and striped.
