Gray skies not gonna clear up? Put on a happy face—and start singing in the rain—with these seven eco-friendly raincoats. Above, the “Lisa” ($298.50), made by Vaute in New York City from domestically sourced—and vegan-friendly—yellow waxed canvas. (A satin version, derived from recycled plastic bottles, is also available.)

CAPED CRUSADER

Designed by the Providence-based company that bears the same name, Cleverhood is a high-performance rain cape manufactured in the Northeast from waterproof yet breathable seam-sealed microfiber. Urban cyclists will appreciate the details, from the 3M reflective stripes to the interior finger loops for rainy-day pedaling.

REAL SLICK

Terra New York’s designer raincoats aren’t just PVC-free, they’re also made from solvent-free and biodegradable thermoplastic polyurethane, which breaks down in a landfill after 15 years of nonuse. The frost-white MOMA trench includes a double-breasted design, mesh vents for breathability, and heat-sealed seams to keep you bone dry.

PULL ONE ON

An elegant reinterpretation of ye olde rain poncho, the “Poncho Via” by Nau features a triple-layer hard shell of organic cotton and recycled polyester, along with subtly chic details such as dolman sleeves, a draped cowl neck, swooping back pleats, and a two-way adjustable belt.
