You may be used to the rain, but your tattered raincoat from six years ago surely isn’t holding up as well as it used to.

Getting through the season in style while lessening your ecological footprint has never been easier.

Here are a few Seattle rainwear companies that are sure to help you survive the next thousand showers.


A trusty raincoat is what you’ll get when you buy Freeman. The company launched in 2011 from the kitchen table of Scott and Brittany Freeman who had the goal of creating their ideal rain jacket. The two believe that producing locally is incredibly important, as it allows them to maintain a high level of interaction with their products.

Try out the original Freeman Rain Jacket, the one that started it all.

Born during the Klondike Gold Rush, thousands of fortune hunters were racing into Seattle, unprepared for the rainy weather ahead. Then came CC Filson, an outdoor-loving pioneer. He realized these new Seattlites working in rugged conditions needed tough, comfortable outdoor clothing. He kept in close contact with all of his customers, improving his goods to meet their needs. Now, over a century later, his goods are refined and perfect for any weather coming your way. Filson’s philosophy has remained the same over the years: make sure it’s the absolute best.

Although the raincoats are designed by NYC clothing designer Wendy Feller and made from cotton sourced from a British company, these international coats were designed in Seattle. The FELLER coats go above and beyond in terms of style: it offers trench coats, fitted coats, jackets, parkas, and toppers. While functional and sporty, FELLER coats still fight the rainy weather and last a lifetime.
