The transitional weather going from winter to spring can be erratic at best—wide temperature swings, bursts of wind and an onslaught of fat drops of rain await us all. It's only a matter of time. So we need some outerwear that can handle it all, which means there's a long list of demands. It's got to be lightweight yet sturdy enough to block the breeze, water-resistant enough to keep us dry and handsome enough to be worn with a wide range of clothing. Choose wisely, and it will end up being one of the most useful pieces in your arsenal. For instance, a great rain jacket makes the perfect travel staple. The key is to find one that suits your style so you look sharp when the skies open up. Whether you want classic looks, ultimate performance or a packable piece that folds into its own pocket, we've rounded up the ten best options to buy in 2018.
