Anyone seen one?

I have to (train) travel a lot for work and have been looking for a light weight jacket with a hood (because it always rains!) but I want it to be smart enough for work.

Anyone seen anything?

Thanks for those suggestions, I hadn't looked there are Seasalt have some nice ones.

I think what I'm looking for is a trench coat type coat but with a hood!

I haven't seen a trench coat with a hood. The Boden Rainy Day Mac could work. It's not super stylish or anything but in a plain colour and maybe size down so it's fitted.

I have this, it looks really nice on and I've worn it in absolute downpours with no issues.
Merrell make clothes for outdoor pursuits so it's a technical fabric that is very good at repelling water, you can see it bead on the surface, rather than a fashion jacket from the High Street that happens to be shower-proof.
