10 best festival raincoats

Whether you’re heading to V Festival, Reading and Leeds or Bestival on the Isle of Wight, make sure you pack a cover-up to protect you from the elements

If you’re heading to a festival in Britain, chances are you won’t be able to get through the weekend – or day – without some showers. Your packing list should include a coat that that will keep you protected from the elements. Whether you go for a good-value fold away number a la Boohoo’s Emilie, a fashion-forward piece like Topshop’s quilted mac, or more heavy-duty rainwear such as Rohan’s Canopy Cape, we hope there’s something here that will find its way into your festival wardrobe.

Verdict:

For coats that will get you in the festival mood, look the part and keep you bone dry, we like Jaded London’s in-your-face designs for men and women. If you’re looking for something that will keep your whole outfit damp free, try Rains long jackets for both sexes. And for a compact waterproof that will do you just as well for a weekend at Leeds Festival as it will for a wet walking break in the Lake District, opt for Regatta’s functional Pack It jacket.
