Best Value Rain Jackets 2021 | Budget Hardshells For Under £100

Protective and durable rain shells at prices that won't break the bank. Including options from Montane, Jack Wolfskin, Rab and Berghaus

One of the greatest things about the Great Outdoors is that, to all intents and purposes, it is free for us all to enjoy. Short of some crazy, seismic event like a global pandemic (ahem), it is always accessible and open to all. That doesn’t mean, of course, that there are no barriers to entry – and unfortunately, one of those barriers can still come down to the money in your pocket (or lack of it). Indeed, in some instances, the latest high-end outdoor kit can sometimes seem unjustifiably expensive.

But that shouldn’t stop anybody from getting out there, because kitting yourself out to enjoy our hills and mountains needn’t cost the earth. By shopping savvy, it is entirely possible to pick up plenty of bargains on everything from boots to rucksacks. Similarly, there are numerous outdoor brands that cater to buyers on a budget, producing practical and dependable gear that won’t break the bank. As it happens, we’ve got some useful advice on smarter shopping in our article on buying budget outdoor gear.

You don’t even need to ‘shell out’ big bucks on your shell. Of course, a reliable waterproof jacket is one bit of kit that will always prove a shrewd investment, especially here in the UK, where, after all, it rains on average for 156.2 days per year. But if you are on a tight budget, don’t despair – we can help. We’ve scoured the market to bring you a crop of quality waterproofs, all of which are priced at around £100 or less. And that’s their recommended retail price (RRP), by the way – shop around and you can normally pick them up for far less. In fact, we’ve included a target price for each product to give you a sense of how much you might actually expect to pay.

By the way, if you’re not too limited by cost, our article on the best waterproof jackets will fill you in on the latest and greatest options out there this year.

The selection in this round up includes a wide range of different options, from light and packable ‘just in case’ jackets to proper hillwalking waterproofs that are built to do battle with the worst of the weather. And though it’s difficult to find Gore-Tex levels of waterproof-breathable protection in this price bracket, it is possible to buy jackets employing cheaper, own-brand technologies that still offer good levels of performance for the majority of outdoor users.

Aside from the type of waterproof protection on offer, it’s also important to consider other features. If you’re a keen mountain biker and trail runner, then a lightweight and breathable jacket will be the best option for you. A jacket with a versatile set of features – like a good hood, plenty of pockets, an adjustable hem and cuffs, for example – makes for a great multi-activity jacket that can be used and abused wherever you take it.

What To Look For When Buying a Rain Jacket

Fit – A good fit is important for any bit of outdoor kit, but it is absolutely vital when it comes to your waterproof shell. It shouldn’t be too tight, or you’ll struggle to zip it up over your other layers, but equally if it’s too baggy it’ll flap around in the wind. Similarly, poorly fitting hoods or cuffs will leak rain, while a loose hem restricts mobility and will allow wind and rain to whip in under your shell. Remember, a cheaper waterproof jacket that fits properly will keep you warmer and drier than a top of the range £400 Gore-Tex Pro jacket that doesn’t fit right.

Venting – Most hard shells use a waterproof-breathable membrane that is designed to stop rain getting in whilst allowing moisture vapour to escape, which is usually referred to as breathability. But if you still find yourself starting to overheat and sweat, manufacturers are also able to increase venting through the use of pit zips and mesh lined pockets.

Zips – These are often weak points in waterproof jacket construction, since it’s pretty tricky to make a fully waterproof zipper. Look for laminated or reverse-coil zips (when the teeth face inwards), as these are usually more water-resistant and less likely to leak. Similarly, look for zips that are covered or backed with a storm flap. Storm flaps helps to stop water getting through and soaking your inner layers.

Hoods – Hoods come in a variety of shapes and sizes, with similarly varied types of adjustment. Being able to reduce the overall volume of the hood is useful, to stop it billowing around in the wind, and getting a tight fit around the face is preferable too. If you’re climbing a lot, then hood that fits over a climbing helmet is essential.

Pockets – A few pockets are useful for stuffing snacks and other essentials in throughout the day. Hand or hip pockets are also good for keeping hands warm, but if they’re placed too low then they often can’t be used whilst wearing a rucksack. Climbers generally prefer Napoleon chest pockets, which remain accessible even if wearing a harness.

So, here it is – our round-up of the best budget waterproofs for under £100.

BEST BUY: Rab Downpour Jacket

Price (RRP) £100 | Target price £85
Weight: 375g
Best for: Hiking, hillwalking and general outdoor use
Key attributes: Packable yet fully-featured

The Downpour jacket is Rab’s entry-level waterproof, a shell that takes all of the brand’s mountain know-how and distills it down into a very competent all-rounder for general outdoors use. Made with a Pertex Shield 2.5-layer fabric that has a Dry Touch backer for added comfort, the Downpour offers good waterproof performance. In fact, Rab claims a pretty impressive 20,000mm Hydrostatic Head (HH) figure for the latest version of the Pertex Shield PU laminate. Breathability isn’t quite as good, but this is offset by that Dry Touch backer that means this jacket rarely gets uncomfortably clammy. It also boasts pit zips for venting – a useful technical feature that you don’t often find at this price point.

In addition, you also get an adjustable, peaked hood that can be rolled down and fixed in place, and Velcro adjustable cuffs as well as zippered pockets with storm flaps. The main YKK zip isn’t a reverse-coil but has external and internal storm flaps to guard against water ingress. The Downpour also packs down into its own left-hand pocket, making it a great ‘just in case’ jacket to stuff in a rucksack. In terms of fit, the overall silhouette is fairly trim, but with plenty of length in the arms and torso. That increased coverage means it feels a bit more protective than many other jackets, so it’s a good option for hillwalkers venturing into more exposed terrain.

The brand’s widespread distribution in the UK, Europe and the USA means the Downpour is available from multiple retailers, both online and in-store. As such, it is often discounted, making it an even better value buy.

Full Specifications

Men’s XS-XXL, women’s UK 6-18 / Pertex Shield 2.5-layer construction with Dry Touch backer / 3-way adjustable hood with reinforced polymer peak and roll down closure / YKK front zip with double storm flaps / 2 YKK zipped hand pockets with storm flaps, left side doubles as integrated stuff sack / Pit zips with storm flaps / Velcro adjustable cuffs / Hem drawcord.

Alpkit Argonaut Jacket

Price (RRP) £89.99 | Target price £89.99
Weight: 350g
Best for: Multi-activity outdoor use
Key attributes: Lightweight, good overall performance

Alpkit ought to need no introduction by now. This British direct-to-consumer brand has become known for providing outdoorsy types with quality kit at cracking prices. The Argonaut is the brand’s entry-level waterproof jacket and is no exception. Like many of the jackets in this round-up, it employs a budget-friendly 2.5-layer waterproof construction. This consists of a pretty tough ripstop nylon face bonded to Alpkit’s own waterproof-breathable laminate. Inside is a ‘half’ layer in the form of a grey printed pattern, which helps to stop the jacket clinging to your skin, so you feel drier and more comfortable. The membrane offers 10k/10k (HH/MVTR) performance for waterproofing and breathability, which equals or outperforms many other jackets in this price bracket, and ought to keep you protected in all but the most extreme of British weather. The face fabric is treated with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) coating, but this isn’t yet PFC-free.

There are no vents, though the mesh-lined pockets can be unzipped to help dump extra heat. It does mean you have to be careful with what you put in your pockets though, and not to accidentally leave a zip open in heavy rain. Other features include a hood, with three-way adjustment for a secure fit in strong winds and a stiffened wire peak. Velcro-adjustable cuffs, hem adjusters and a double storm flap on the main zip prevent leaks. It weighs in at just under 350g, so is lightweight and fairly packable too. There’s no stuff sack or dedicated pack-pocket, but it rolls away neatly into its own hood. The fit is fairly trim but should suit most people, unless you’re particularly long-limbed.

Given Alpkit’s direct-to-consumer retail model, you’re unlikely to find the Argonaut at a heavily discounted price, unless Alpkit put it in their own seasonal sales. But even at this price it’s a great value jacket for UK hiking and hillwalking.

Full Specifications

Men’s S-XXL, women’s UK 8-18 / 2.5-layer construction with PU backer / Roll away hood with 3-way adjustment and wire peak / 2 mesh-lined zipped hand pockets/ Full-length zip with double storm flaps / Velcro adjustable cuffs / Hem drawcord.

Sprayway Rebu Jacket

Price (RRP) £100 | Target price £100
Weight: 310g
Best for: General outdoor use
Key attributes: Lightweight and versatile

We’ve been really impressed with some of the latest premium offerings from British brand Sprayway, such as the retro-styled Sprayway Torridon. But they’re also doing great things even at the entry-level end of their range. The Rebu is a case in point – a lightweight 2.5-layer waterproof that uses the brand’s own Hydro/dry fabric, which has a minimum performance of 5k/5k HH and MVTR. The face fabric is a fairly hard-wearing 30-denier nylon, while the inner half-layer employs a similar ‘dry touch’ style backer to that found in other 2.5-layer shells for enhanced next-to-skin comfort. This construction is both lightweight and packable and should still stand up well to everyday use.

You also get a grown-on hood with a wired peak and simple three-point adjustment, a reverse-coil front zip with an inner storm flap, two zipped hand pockets, adjustable cuffs and a hem drawcord. There are no external storm flaps, so this doesn’t feel quite as protective as some of its rivals, but it is lighter as a result. Overall fit is more generous than most other brands, and you may even need to size down if you prefer a trimmer cut. Still, there is plenty of length in both arms and body for decent all-round coverage.

As a relatively new addition to the current season’s line up, currently there aren’t too many bargains around on the Rebu, though as more stockists pick it up that may change.

Full Specifications

Men’s S-XXL, women’s (Leja) UK 8-18  / 2.5-layer HydroDRY 30D polyamide fabric / Adjustable hood with wired peak / Reverse-coil main zip with inner storm guard / 2 zipped hand pockets / Velcro adjustable cuffs / Hem drawcord.

Keela Stashaway Pro Jacket

Price (RRP) £59.95 | Target price £49
Weight: 295g
Best for: Cycling, travelling, general outdoor use
Key attributes: Ultralight and packable

As its name suggests, the Stashaway Pro from Scottish brand Keela is designed to be a minimalist, ultralight and packable jacket for emergency wet weather protection. It is of relatively simple construction, employing Keela’s Rainlife 2000 technology – essentially, a ripstop nylon fabric with a hydrophilic PU coating. You’re not going to get world beating performance from such a simple design in terms of either waterproofing or breathability, but it ought to do the job. And the Stashaway Pro does boast taped seams, a laminated full zip backed with a storm flap and a rollaway hood, as well as its own stuff sack. So, it offers more protection than a windshell, with similar packability and only a minimal increase in weight. Other features include semi-elasticated cuffs with Velcro adjustment, two excellent map-sized chest pockets with storm flaps and a two-way drawcord adjustable hem.

The fit is described as unisex, but it is relatively generous, so we’d recommend sizing down. Even then, it is somewhat boxy – but does have a great scooped hem that provides plenty of coverage. As such, we’d say this would make a decent cycling and bike-touring jacket as well as a general emergency wet weather option for walkers.

Perhaps the Stashaway Pro’s most compelling feature is its low price tag. It was recently available direct from Keela for an incredible £18. We defy anyone to find a cheaper waterproof of comparable quality than that!

Full Specifications

Unisex S-XXL  / 2-layer Rainlife 2000 ripstop nylon fabric with PU coating and taped seams / Laminated zip with storm flap / Rollaway hood / Stuff sack / Semi-elasticated cuffs with Velcro adjustment / 2 pockets with storm flaps / Hem drawcord.

Quechua MH500 Jacket

Price (RRP) £65 | Target price £65
Weight: 550g
Best for: Hiking and hillwalking
Key attributes: Durable, comfortable, good performance

Unlike the other jackets in this line-up, the MH500 from Decathlon’s hiking brand Quechua utilises a 3-layer construction, usually only found in much higher-priced jackets. The waterproof-breathable PU membrane is laminated to a face fabric made from a nylon-polyester blend, with an inner scrim layer rather than just a printed or raised half-layer. Though this adds a little weight, it also makes this jacket feel far more comfortable against the skin than others on test here. It also adds considerable long-term durability. Indeed, it is impressive that Decathlon can offer such a high-quality jacket at such a low price – though that is down to the buying power and economies of scale that you get from being the world’s largest sporting goods retailer.

In terms of waterproofing, lab testing figures claim 15K HH for the membrane used in the MH500 jacket. That is comparable to many higher-priced jackets. When it comes to breathability, Decathlon use a slightly different test, preferring RET (Resistance to Evaporating Heat Transfer) to MVTR (Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate). Whereas higher MVTR figures denote better breathability, when it comes to RET the lower the value is, the higher the breathability. This jacket has an RET of 6, which is a very good result. If you’re started to feel a little perplexed by all this pseudo-science, rest assured that our field tests backed up the lab data. Basically, the MH500 performs as well as many other premium mountain hardshells that are double the price.

Nor does it compromise on features. There are dual hem drawcords, Velcro-adjustable cuffs, pit zips, a laminated reverse-coil main zip with an inner storm flap, and a hood with three-point adjustment. You also get two water-resistant, mesh-lined hand pockets, an inner zipped chest pocket and a secondary inner mesh stretch pocket. It’s just a shame that the brim of the hood isn’t slightly stiffer to offer a bit more face protection.

It’s also worth highlighting the fit too. The MH500 is close-fitting but true to size yet offers excellent freedom of movement thanks to a little stretch in the fabric and an ergonomic cut that provides plenty of articulation. If you want a capable waterproof jacket for hill and mountain walking, then there really isn’t a better option at this price than the MH500. Its only real drawback is the slightly higher weight and packed size compared to 2.5-layer shells.

Full Specifications

Men’s S-XXXL, women’s XS-XXL / 3-layer PU membrane / Pit zips / Laminated reverse-coil main zip with an inner storm flap / Hood with three-point adjustment / 2 water-resistant, mesh-lined hand pockets / Inner zipped chest pocket and inner mesh stretch pocket / Velcro-adjustable cuffs / Hem drawcord.

Helly Hansen Roam Jacket

Price (RRP) £110 | Target price £65
Weight: 290g
Best for: General outdoor use
Key attributes: Very light, versatile ‘town to country’ styling, solid overall performance

Helly Hansen’s Roam jacket for men utilises a 2.5-layer construction. Basically, it’s a DWR-treated 100% nylon fabric with a Helly Tech PU laminate and a thin half-layer backer. It still offers competitive performance, with 10k/10k waterproofing and breathability ratings.

The seams are all fully taped and it has a front poppered external storm flap to keep out wind and rain. Half-elasticated cuffs with Velcro adjustment and dual hem drawcords let you adjust the fit. There’s a fairly simple grown-on hood with Velcro volume adjustment and twin face drawcords, though the hood itself lacks structure, with no stiffened peak.

This isn’t a truly technical jacket. Instead, it has a more casual style that is designed to be equally at home in town or country, with contrast flap pockets at the hip and chest, and just the one small zipped chest pocket, which also acts as a pack pocket. The design adds versatility for different settings, and the Roam is well-named, for it would be perfectly at home on a countryside ramble or if you found yourself caught in a city downpour. It is also very lightweight at 290g, stuffing away into a tiny package. It’s worth noting that the fabric is 100% Bluesign approved, so this jacket’s eco credentials are better than most budget waterproofs.

Full Specifications

Men’s XS-XXXL (no women’s version) / 2.5-layer HELLY TECH fabric, fully seam sealed / Full-length main zip with storm flap / Half-elasticated cuffs with Velcro adjustment / Hood with Velcro volume adjustment and twin face drawcords / Contrast flap pockets at hip and chest / Zipped pack pocket / 100% Bluesign approved fabric / Hem drawcord.

Columbia Inner Limits II Jacket

Price (RRP) £90 | Target price £45
Weight: 460g
Best for: General outdoor use
Key attributes: Retro styling, comfortable

US mega-brand Columbia manufacture a wide range of budget-friendly waterproof jackets that generally make use of their own Omni-Tech waterproof-breathable system. Our pick of the bunch is the Inner Limits II, a versatile all-rounder that comes in multiple on-trend, colour-blocked retro hues. And yes, its allure is partly down to its striking looks, but despite the throwback ’90s appeal, it isn’t all style over substance.

The Inner Limits II is a conventional 2-layer jacket, with a polyester face fabric bonded to Columbia’s Omni-Tech membrane. The quoted lab performance is a solid 10k/10k for waterproofing and breathability. In order to protect the laminate and enhance overall comfort, there’s a mesh drop liner. Admittedly, this adds a little weight, but it does make this jacket feel less clammy than most 2.5-layer jackets. As such, it’s very comfortable on and off the hill. This is aided by the polyester fabric, which is noticeably softer and less crinkly than nylon alternatives, though the trade-off may be slightly reduced long-term durability.

The jacket features a single hem drawcord and Velcro adjustable cuffs, with a reverse-coil zipper backed with a storm flap. You also get twin zipped hand pockets and an inside pocket with a Velcro closure. This also works as a pack pocket if you needed to stuff the jacket away. The hood is relatively simple, with Velcro volume adjustment and dual face drawcords.

Columbia describes the ‘active fit’ as ‘body-skimming’, but to your average British walker it’s actually fairly relaxed and even a little boxy. On the plus side, that gives plenty of room for layers, but might not feel quite as closely contoured as other jackets. We sized down for a trimmer fit and could still wear the jacket over a baselayer and midweight fleece.

While the Inner Limits II probably wouldn’t be the jacket we’d pick for a full day of wet weather hillwalking, it’s the one we found ourselves reaching for when heading out to walk the dog or nip to the shops. Put simply, it’s a very comfortable and versatile waterproof jacket with a bit more style than most. You can also pick it up for around half the RRP, which makes it cracking value.

Full Specifications

Men’s S-XXL, women’s XS-XL / 2-layer Omni-Tech polyester fabric, fully seam sealed / Full-length main zip / Adjustable hood / Chin guard / Inner Velcro security pocket / Zippered hand pockets / Adjustable cuffs / Packs into its own pocket / Hem drawcord.

Berghaus Deluge Pro 2.0 Jacket

Price (RRP) £100 | Target price £72
Weight: 312g
Best for: Hiking
Key attributes: Quality feel, durable

This isn’t quite the cheapest jacket in the Berghaus range – that would be the Deluge Light – but the Pro 2.0 version offers an improved set of features that we think are well worth the slightly increased cost. The two-layer construction uses Berghaus’ own Hydroshell waterproofing, which incorporates both hydrophilic and microporous coatings. This helps to ensure sustained performance and durability. Lab stats for the system give a Hydrostatic Head rating of 10,000mm and breathability of 8,000g/m2/24hrs, ideal for low level walking and everyday use. The Deluge Pro 2.0 employs a nylon face fabric with a PU laminate and taped seams throughout. This doesn’t feel quite as pleasant next to the skin as a 2.5- or 3-layer jacket, or even a 2-layer jacket with a mesh drop liner. But it does balance low weight with durability, creating a versatile all-round waterproof.

In terms of features, the jacket has a single hem drawcord and two lower zipped hand pockets. These employ chunky zips, as does the main zip, which is backed with a storm flap. The hood has a slightly stiffened peak and rear volume adjustment. Fit is fairly generous, with plenty of length in the arms and body for good all-round coverage. Those who prefer a trimmer silhouette may wish to drop down a size.

It’s no surprise that the Deluge Pro 2.0 is such a common sight on the footpaths and in the hills. We suspect walkers are attracted to its no-nonsense styling and quality feel, as well as its competitive price. If you shop around, you should be able to pick it up for substantially less than the RRP too. A final point, but one worth making, is that this jacket contains bluesign approved fabrics and forms part of Berghaus’s MADEKIND range, so it is more eco-friendly than most budget waterproofs.

Full Specifications

Men’s XS-XXXL, women’s (Deluge Pro) UK 8-18 / 2-layer Hydroshell nylon fabric, fully seam sealed / 2 zipped hand pockets / Full-length main zip with storm flap / Hood with stiffened peak and rear volume adjustment / Velcro adjustable cuffs / Hem drawcord / Bluesign-approved fabric.

Montane Meteor Jacket

Price (RRP) £110 | Target price £95
Weight: 360g
Best for: Hiking, hillwalking and general outdoor use
Key attributes: Lightweight, fully-featured

Montane’s new entry-level waterproof shell is the Meteor, which is an updated version of the Atomic jacket. Available up until late 2020, the Atomic had been part of the brand’s range for the best part of a decade and was a perennial contender for the title of ‘best budget waterproof jacket’.

Like its predecessor, the Meteor competes squarely with the Rab Downpour, matching it for waterproof-breathable performance, indeed utilising the same 40-denier weight nylon face fabric. This is bonded to a Pertex Shield membrane in a 2.5-layer construction, with taped seams and a Dry Touch backer for added comfort. Just like the Downpour, you get a peaked hood with a wire brim and three-point adjustment, Velcro adjustable cuffs, a hem drawcord and two zippered hand pockets. The main YKK zip is a reverse-coil with an internal storm flap. There are also pit zips to aid venting if things do start to get a bit stuffy.

The main differences from Rab’s offering are that with the Montane Meteor, the pockets are mesh-lined – so you can open them for even more airflow. On the other hand, this provides a potential leak point if you neglect to keep them fully zipped up in heavy rain. Nor do the pockets or the main zip have external storm flaps – presumably, these have been omitted to save weight and give a cleaner silhouette. As such, the Meteor is marginally lighter than the Rab Downpour.

The Meteor’s overall fit is trim, but with enough room for layering. There’s plenty of length in the arms and torso as well as a scooped hem for added rear coverage. As an all-rounder for general outdoor use, it does the job extremely well, and is justifiably popular.

Full Specifications

Men’s S-XXL, women’s UK 8-16 / 2.5-layer Pertex Shield 40D nylon fabric, fully seam sealed with Dry Touch backer / 2 mesh-lined zipped hand pockets / Full-length reverse-coil YKK main zip with inner storm flap / Hood with wire peak and three-point adjustment / Pit zips / Velcro adjustable cuffs / Hem drawcord.

Jack Wolfskin Evandale Jacket

Price £100 | Target price £100
Weight: 495g
Best for: General outdoor use
Key attributes: Comfortable, well-made

The Evandale is a comfortable and well-made jacket that feels a little more substantial than many of the lightweight 2.5-layer shells featured here. It uses a simpler 2-layer construction similar to the Columbia Inner Limits II jacket, consisting of a soft and rustle-free polyester face fabric backed with Jack Wolfskin’s own Texapore waterproof-breathable coating. To protect this coating and to enhance wearer comfort, there’s a drop liner made from nylon mesh, with a taffeta sleeve lining. The brand quotes 10k HH and 6k MVTR figures for waterproofing and breathability.

The main zip is backed with a storm drain and also has a soft chin guard, which is a nice touch. There are two hand pockets, protected by external storm flaps. There’s also an elasticated mesh inner pocket, Velcro-adjustable cuffs and a dual hem drawcord, plus a drop hood. This has a slightly stiffened peak and two face drawcords, though no rear volume adjustment. The drop hood can also be stowed away inside the jacket’s collar, and somewhat unusually the collar itself has an elastic drawcord, so you can pull it in tight around the neck.

The fabric is Bluesign-approved, and the Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treatment applied to the face fabric is also PFC-free. Both of these credentials elevate this jacket above the competition in terms of environmental impact, and it’s good to see a big brand like Jack Wolfskin paying attention to sustainability even at the entry level end of their product range.

The polyester face fabric is a fairly heavy weight and so we wouldn’t be unduly concerned about durability, though polyester is not as strong a fibre for its weight as nylon. With the exception of the Quachua MH500, which is a 3-layer jacket, the 2-layer Evandale is heavier than all the other jackets here, tipping the scales at just under 500g for a men’s medium. The fit is on the generous side, and if you tend to hover between sizes, it’s probably worth dropping down.

Full Specifications

Men’s S-XXXL, women’s XS-XXL / 2-layer Texapore polyester fabric, fully seam sealed with nylon mesh and taffeta drop liner / 2 zipped hand pockets with storm flaps/ Full-length zip with inner storm flap and chin guard / Fixed stowable hood with face adjustment / Stand-up collar with adjustment / Mesh inner pocket / Velcro adjustable cuffs / Hem drawcord.
