Hi everyone.

I for one love the new Rains rainwear selection, its a tad on the expensive side though, however "its stunning"..

I have a full length matte black Rains mac which I am comfortable with wearing in the rain-a rare occurrence in SE England these days. It is quite lightweight but has a tendency to blow open at the front in a wind. One more press stud lower down would have solved that problem. But it is good that so many of their designs are unisex and attract more mainstream buyers.

Love rains clothing,
I have one of their short parkas in navy blue with white zips and press studs.
I use it as an everyday jacket when raining and love it
Lets get swishy!

I love Rains. And I think they're pretty reasonably priced, especially compared to the likes of Stutterheim and Hunter. I have the knee-length clear plastic mac and the mint green glossy hooded raincoat that were part of last year's "ltd" collection. Thinking about getting the shiny black trench next.

Rains is great quality. Bought mine in their dedicated store in Islington/Highbury. I have black jacket and trousers for everyday use. Like Bill_P, I'd love the shiny black trench coat too!

I find it slightly flimsy (compared with, for example, Stutterheim Opal and certainly SBR) but still worthwhile. I have, for example, a favourite camouflage rainsuit, jacket and trousers.
