Whether you’re protecting yourself from a torrential downpour on your way to work or you’re about to embark on a rainy weekend in the Lake District, a raincoat has become a necessary staple of the British wardrobe. And yet, the trusty anorak has long had a reputation for being a little on the frumpy side.
Thankfully, we’re passionate about changing that. One of the newest additions to our collection of women’s waterproof coats is The Rain Bomber. We’d had fantastic feedback on The City Walker and wanted to expand on its popularity by introducing a longer version with an elegantly-shaped dropped back hem for fuller coverage.
Let’s take a look at The Rain Bomber’s key details:
- Waterproof and breathability ratings: 15000mm H20/15000gms/m2
- Waterproof front zip and invisible zip security pockets
- Laser cut and heat welded shaped front placket
- Statement heat welded cuffs with soft fastening stud adjusters
- Fully seam sealed construction with waterproof guarantee
- Drawcord adjuster on the hem allowing you to change its shape
- Fully adjustable hood for maximum protection, fit and visibility
So with the technical details on the table, let’s explore how this beautiful bomber jacket can be styled and how it can be worn for just about any event or occasion.

If you’re used to commuting on public transport, you’ll likely have experienced the drama that comes with finding the perfect coat to wear. Although you want to keep warm and dry, if your coat is too thick you can be left in a sweat and if it’s too bulky it can be a nightmare to carry.
We took this into account when designing The Rain Bomber, opting for a lightweight and breathable yet highly technical fabric. It has a generously sized hood designed to protect you from the elements, with the option of folding it away neatly into the collar if you’re looking for a slightly sleeker look.
And thanks to large security zip pockets, you can keep your money, travel passes, phone and any other valuables secure and within easy reach, without having to rummage around in your bag when you need them.
From weekend walks to socialising with friends
No matter what you have planned this weekend, The Rain Bomber is an adaptable garment guaranteed to work with any outfit.
Not only can you team it with jeans, a casual top and trainers for day time walks, it’ll effortlessly transition to an evening jacket when you want to join your friends for a meal or drinks in a bar. Available in two colours: Olive Green and Night Sky Navy, its subtle and muted tones are sure to complement everything from floral summer fabrics to smart black dresses.
A versatile companion this festival season
If you’re heading off to any festivals this summer, you may already be thinking about what you’ll take with you on your trip. Even if the weather’s forecast to be glorious, it’s wise to prepare for the worst by packing some waterproof clothing.
This is where The Rain Bomber comes in. With the help of this versatile lightweight jacket, you can stay dry without having to pack anything heavy.
Designed to look as good as it performs, The Rain Bomber is sure to complement any outfit – so whether you want to team it with a vest, denim shorts and wellies or a boho-inspired summer dress with sandals, this is a jacket that perfectly merges practicality and style.

Ali said: “I took a little while to order this, but – oh my – am I glad I did. It’s another absolutely gorgeous offering from Protected Species. Sharp lines, stretchy flowing material. It covers my bottom and the sleeves reach just past my wrists. I adore the new hood shape and the tonal lining. Also love how the hood zips away.”
Katrina said: “I wear this jacket everywhere. It looks really cool, while being completely waterproof. Best purchase I’ve made in a while.”
