An awesome and affordable $40 $30 (!) raincoat

OK, so I mentioned wanting a new raincoat, right? I wanted on that was affordable. Well…I bought one!

Turns out that the Target down the street had this olive-colored one by A New Day on sale for $30! So I tried it on, and…now it’s my new raincoat. 🙂

Even for $39.99, it’s pretty boss. It’s a thinner coat, so I don’t expect to go traipsing around the Alps in it, but it’s lined and cozy. It should be enough for the 60s and 50s, and maybe the 40s if you’re made of stronger stuff than I am. If it dips much lower than that, though, you’ll probably need a warm and toasty layer underneath.

The sleeves are long enough to cover my wrists (THANK GOD), but they aren’t too long, and I like the length (long but not too long) and how the waist hits exactly where it should. I also love the olive color and that the hood completely covers my head.

Olive works as a neutral, so I think it’ll go with just about anything.

I do have to say that the shoulders are kinda tight…so if you’ve got a swimmer or water polo player’s shoulders, first of all, I’m jealous! Second, try the coat on first to make sure it fits.

Also, check the zipper, because the zipper on my coat was a little stiff the first few times I zipped it up and down.

Overall, I think it’s a great, affordable water-resistant coat for light showers and chilly, but not freezing, temps.

“Through rain or shine, trendsetting fashion is just a zip away with this Anorak Jacket from A New Day™. You’ll long for chilly drizzles every day if it means you get to wear this stylish piece. With two front flap pockets, a tapered waist and snap closures over the zipper, you’ll be putting the finishing touch on any outfit with this coat.” –target.com

Are you a raincoat or an umbrella person? I’m mostly a raincoat person because I like to keep my hands free to do stuff…
