    I would like to get a raincoat to wear when I travel.

    Parameters:  

    Classic style that looks good with a suit.
    Not too heavy or bulky.  
    Can be packed into my luggage when necessary without taking up too much space.

    Any suggestions?

    Are you familiar with Tilley products? My Webpage I do not think that they make a travel raincoat--yet--but they continue to expand their travel wear collection. The company is much more than just a hat manufacturer. Also, LL Bean might be a source.

    In the previous post, the "My Webpage" actually is the Tilley company. I hit the wrong button. [​IMG]

    loro piana's storn tech line of coats likely fit your needs, has the waterproof protection, very very lightweight, and classic styling

    Thanks for the advice.

    I picked up a raincoat today.

    The rain coat is made with Loro Piana's storm system cloth. Not too heavy (but heavier than microfiber) and very nice looking for a truly waterproof coat.

    I'm actually wishing it would rain now.
