If you really want to go whole hog on politically correct rain jacket sourcing, there’s the Rivendell “English Rain Jacket”. It’s made in the USA, but for some reason still English, and, best of all, it’s wicked expensive.

Expensive, you say? Pshaw.

Jeepers.
The Boultbee jacket is dry clean only, like all the best wet weather gear.

Given the price, I suspect that you get not only free shipping, but a live-in valet with a special badger-hair brush, who shall tenderly brush the road grime from the jacket each night whilst you slumber.

Given what Eric “The Chamferer” Murray would do to him otherwise, he’ll be whatever nationality you’d prefer.

Makes the Cleverhood cape I want seem like a veritable bargain. Thanks.
Did not know such a thing as badger hair brushes existed. Now I need one.

If you’ve ever tried to convince a badger to part with its hair, you’ll understand why such brushes qualify as ostentatious luxury goods.

Badger brushes are commonly used for applying shaving soaps, but luckily there are alternatives: (which I can’t seem to find ATM, but bought one from here before)

Marmot Precip is on sale at REI in Settler’s Ridge for $75. Many sizes, many colors (at least tonight).

Here are a couple of rain capes made in the U.S.A.:

Cleverhood – stylish and very generous in size, with velcro tabs to snug down.

Yes, I said “stylish.”

Center For Appropriate Transport Oregon – waxed canvas with reflective piping. Kinda narrow hand holds, but custom sizing is available. Works fine on my drop-bar bike.

Also stylish.
C’mon, people! We have to be the first wave of making ponchos fashionable!

I was in a group of 15 riders from Meyersdale to Cumberland last week, there were 2 very stylish rain capes in the mix:

@edmond’s attitude: your clothes should cost at least as much as your bike.

Hmm, interesting. Need to ponder that. Although my one road bike completely bollixes the curve.

Well, 2012 is better than 1996… looks like we need to add fringe and/or sparkles, though.

Someone else in the east hills has a yellow rain cape. Riding up Greensburg Pike yesterday, I passed a woman out trick or treating with her son, in the rain. “Hi Dad!” the boy called out.

Riding home on Halloween night in my Cleverhood, a girl asked if I was E.T. Shoulda said “Phone home!”
