Yes, leaving the house with a rain coat in tow is a great idea during the unpredictable days of spring. Problem is, a jacket is also inconvenient when the rain doesn’t actually show up. The Parker Dusseau Seadrift 3XDry Overshirt offers a more convenient option.
A water-repellent long-sleeved shirt, it’s designed to wear on top of a dress shirt, a button-down, or whatever else you wear to work, making for a lighter, less-bulky alternative to traditional rainy day garments. Heck, it’s actually nice enough to wear on its own, although it might be a better idea to use it sparingly like a rain jacket.
The Parker Dusseau Seadrift 3XDry Overshirt is made from a 6.5-ounce twill cotton and nylon fabric that’s been reinforced with a special treatment that repels both water and stains. It’s cut, pretty much, like a tailored button down, albeit with enough room to accommodate another shirt underneath, with a gusseted back and just enough stretch to provide excellent mobility. A zippered mesh pocket sits on the left chest to accommodate a wallet and other small objects. Features include reflective detail on the collar (only visible when it’s turned up), PRYM spring-snap buttons, and a YKK locking pull tab zipper for the pocket.
Available now, the Parker Dusseau Seadrift 3XDry Overshirt is priced at $188.
