About Raingoat

We are a new rainwear company located in Chicago with a mission to provide innovative, quality rain gear at an affordable price.

Our goal is that our values, design, and quality will get your attention and entice you to choose us over any other rainwear company.

Why Raingoat?

We require our manufacturers to have completed a Safe and Respectful Working Environment audit. Learn more >

Our manufacturers must dispose of wastewater and hazardous substances safely and lawfully. In addition, every manufacturer must do everything within their power to reduce power use, hazardous chemicals, and wastewater.

Our goal is to use recycled or renewable fabrics whenever possible. All of our plastic polybags are recycled or biodegradable. We use only recycled materials in our shipping materials, and we do not use any plastic in our package filler.

We joined 1% for the Planet to certify responsible giving and hold ourselves accountable. Certification for 1% for the Planet is only given to companies that commit to donating 1% of their annual sales or salary to environmental causes. Learn more >

We offer a fair and ethical warranty process. The policy is clear and easy to follow. As part of that policy, we prefer to repair rather than replace products when acceptable to conserve resources and reduce manufacturing impact.

Chicago may have the worst weather in the US. Being in the "Windy City," we test our umbrellas and rain jackets for windproof effectiveness on the "L" Train platforms. We get more rain than Seattle, and you've all heard the stories about the brutally cold winters.
