Item For Review: The Waterproof Stealth Raincoat

I’ve sat on this coat & review for a few weeks because I really wanted to take some time to try to beat the hell out of this stealth piece of outerwear. If you get a chance to watch the video review below, I mentioned that this jacket is made from waterproof Swiss performance material — so I wanted to push performance to the limited. Here’s a list of all the things I did in this jacket:

  • Ran half a mile
  • Taken multiple naps
  • Climbed scaffolding
  • Visited a cigar bar
  • Actually played in the rain like a 4-year-old

After all those fun activities, I did actually menswear things — attending a few events, rocked it with a tuxedo (see below) and gave it some streetwear love.

Overall Impression:

Aside from the waterproof properties, there are three things stand out about this coat — the tailored fit, the stretch/breathe-ability of the fabric & the self-fabric elbow patches. With this trappings of a blazer (peak lapels, breast & ticket pockets), with the length of a modern topcoat, it’s a no brainer that wearing this with a suit or formal wear is a must. Because of the colorway, mixing this coat with casual & streetwear pieces elevates your look to a level worthy of a street style-god.  Needless-to-say, I really like this coat. To accommodate my height (5 ft 9.25), I took the coat back to the CMMP showroom and had it chopped two inches. Grade: B+

My Only Con

The color is listed as jet-black, however; depending on the light, it shows blue. It’s a con wrapped in a pro because the variation in color makes it a bit more versatile than one would think when you hear black coat.

As someone that suits up often (and attends for events), this jacket is perfectly tailored for any occasion. Because of it’s light weight, it still works as the weather gets warmer and you need a topcoat for inclement weather. My only alteration was the have the jacket shortened two inches. The tailored torso creates the perfect silhouette.

  • I really, really like this coat. Since I’m a bigger guy, I gravitate more towards things like this because pieces that are oversized tend to look sloppy on me. This coat would easily elevate anyone’s style since it’s more tailored. Topcoats have been so popular during the fall and winter so I like that this coat allows you get that same look during the warmer months. This coat is a really awesome find!

    • Definitely. It’s a pleasure to find a waterproop topcoat that is truly a 4 season coat!

    Very cool, essentially a modernized frock coat.

  • DJ Hargrave

    The color really threw me off..I kind of see that as a con too. Nonetheless, the tailored fit of the sleeves and body of the coat is priceless.
