Bargain £12.75 women's raincoat: 'Brilliant, lightweight waterproof jacket'

Snap up this waterproof jacket for your spring wardrobe while it's reduced by 75%. (Regatta Outdoors)

Spring has sprung and while we're loving the warmer weather and ditching heavy coats, you can never be too prepared for unexpected showers.

The great British weather is known for being unreliable, but sometimes it can feel a bit of a faff bringing an umbrella with you everywhere you go.

They can often be too bulky for your handbag or when we're feeling lazy, we simply don't fancy something else to carry.

That's why a lightweight waterproof jacket is the perfect compromise and we've just spotted an amazing bargain.

With many rainy days ahead, it's going straight in our shopping basket before it sells out.

Why we rate it

The Regatta Women's Pack-It III Waterproof Jacket has been slashed in price from £50 by up to 75%.

Price varies depends on the colour, however numerous shades of the rain jacket are now down to just £12.45 by Regatta Outdoors – making it an absolute steal.

This waterproof jacket boast a breathable design with a water repellent finish. It also has taped seams, an adjustable shockcord hood and allows moisture vapour to escape through fabric.

Perfect for long walks and music festivals alike, our favourite feature is how it packs away into a small bag, taking up very little space in your pocket or handbag.

  • "Perfect to stick in my handbag. Lightweight but warm because it really it windproof! Good length. Good price in sale."

  • "I actually saw this was so cheap and bought it right away before reading reviews. Then afterwards i was worrying it was gunna turn up and be going straight back. I was pleasantly surprised. Does the job, nice quality, doesn't feel super cheap."

  • "Nice, lightweight waterproof jacket for rainy days. I bought a size larger so I can wear it over my winter jacket in cold weather."

  • "Brilliant, lightweight, waterproof jacket. I have one in my car, and another in my bag. I always take one on holiday, because they are so lightweight, but still waterproof, and windproof. I’ve also bought one for my daughter, my husband, and my two granddaughters."

  • "After reading the reviews I chose a size larger and it is a perfect fit with enough room for a warm jumper underneath. When packed it is compact and light to carry. Mine had a good test run in Croatia and I stayed perfectly dry. Would highly recommend."
