Five top lightweight summer raincoats for under £30 on Amazon

We may have seen temperatures of upwards of 30 degrees last week but storm Ellen has brought torrential rain and blustery winds to many parts of the UK. 

If you’re in need for a new waterproof jacket to brave this wetter weather, it’s worth looking on Amazon as the mega-retailer is a surprisingly good place to shop for practical, stylish buys that are also super affordable. 

Ahead, we’ve rounded up five of the best raincoats to keep you dry this summer. None of them cost more than £30 so you can protect yourself against showers without breaking the bank. 

Abollria Women Rain Jacket, £22.99

The Abollria Women Rain Jacket is currently the bestseller in ‘Women’s Jackets’ on Amazon. Cheap and cheerful, the classic slim fit shape and colours have proven to be a big hit among shoppers.  

It’s lightweight and slim so is ideal for summer showers and won’t take up too much room in your wardrobe. What’s more, this jacket can be easily rolled up and put in a bag as a precaution should the weather take a turn. 

The addition of the hood is a great feature, while the quick drying material will keep you comfortable. The breathable mesh liner is another plus, especially if you’re looking for a jacket to run in. As it’s a slim fit we would recommend sizing up if you’re going to wear this over a lot of layers. 

One delighted shopper left a five star review, writing: ‘Looks and performs like a much more expensive item. I’d buy another without hesitation.’

Regatta Women’s Jacket, from £12.10

If you’re looking for a jacket you can roll up and chuck in your bag, the Regatta Women’s Packet Jacket is a good option. 

While it wouldn’t be thick enough for winter, it offers enough coverage for summer showers. The Regatta Jacket also gets top marks for portability as it can pack down into the provided bag without any problems. 

Reviewers have noted that the hood has a ‘sung fit’ too, so won’t blow off if the wind picks up. A number have shoppers have advised to size up as it does have a small fit.  

One happy shopper wrote: ‘Proved completely waterproof. This does just the job for keeping dry in the warmer weather. Really light, good deep pockets (can hold three dog leads), true to size. Better still, the hood comes down far enough to keep hair dry, but not down over your eyes.’

Trespass Qikpac Jacket, £21.49

The Tresspass Qikpac Jacket is one of the brand’s bestsellers, and for good reason. Waterproof up to 5,000mm, this is a good option for those that love to go for long walks or hikes where you’re more exposed to the elements. 

The jacket’s tapered seams means it’s waterproof and windproof, while the toggles on the hood allow you to tighten it, protecting you further from wind and rain. Additional features like elasticated sleeves, a drawcord at the hem and ventilated back are all well thought out to provide comfort whilst outdoors. 

A big draw is the fact that this can be rolled down and stuffed in its carry bag, so it is a good option to keep in the car or in your bag should the clouds turn grey.  The jacket is available in moss, black, navy and raspberry.
