Don’t head into fall without a reliable, comfortable rain jacket. This affordable jacket from OR pairs plenty of room to move thanks to stretchy nylon twill fabric with the waterproof, breathable construction you’ll need out on the trails. The result is a shell that offers far more value that its price tag would imply.

I liked the voluminous pockets and that it feels longer than other rain jackets I’ve had. It’s also softer and quieter than a lot of rain jackets.

You can certainly spend more on bells and whistles, but this jacket’s everything-you-need, nothing-you-don’t approach makes it a great investment for the impending cooler, wetter weather.

MSRP: $83.85-$129. Outdoorresearch.com
