Seattle just birthed a new homespun clothing line… and naturally, their first item is a raincoat.

The brand is Freeman Seattle (not to be confused with these guys), and the raincoat is pretty close to perfect. The design takes after the classic Sierra Designs 60/40 parka, but as with many classic items, this one turns out to be cheaper to make from scratch.

And in the grand tradition of Northwestern rain gear, it’s as light as possible—which should be handy once March rolls around.
