Not sure if this is the right swag thread...

I got this rain coat recently

Thought I'd try it out tonight since it's raining like a mofo and I wanted some shake shack. So threw it on and headed out fearless. 5 minutes later I am soaked through the jacket and wet to the skin.

What the hell? Anybody else have this jacket and had same or better experience?
The worst rain jacket i've ever used. Literally just soaks everything up. As waterproof as a Hanes Tshirt.

I have the black rain jacket that came in in 2016. Great rain coat. Looks great and repels all water.

Nice article about the boutique kit makers that provide original jerseys to each team and forgo the cookie-cutter tendencies of the big apparel companies.

North America’s indie kitmakers are giving youth and lower division teams unique identities

First hand experience, Icarus kits are indeed very nice and comfortable too. Only negative I can see thus far is that they don't have significant stretch nor will they be accommodating towards larger gut having peoples.

Hopefully MLS sees that kits can be more than just a blank copy paste template.

yooooooooo i didnt know they did MLS teams. I loved their liga mx and latin american designs. ...... damn well i now know what im getting myself for christmas. im gonna cop this and the chivas one.

EDIT: Apparently so far its only 6 MLS teams (LAFC, Galaxy, Timbers, Toronto, orlando :rolleyes: and us). lucky to be one of them.

Edit2: they got a sale going on this week. this comes out to about $44, before tax shipping. not bad at all.
