Nordstrom was founded in 1901 in Seattle, Washington, so we know a thing or two about wet weather and the benefits of owning a rain jacket or three. You don't see many umbrellas on the sidewalks of our emerald city, but no one leaves home without a raincoat or waterproof jacket (hood not really optional). The North Face makes several jackets that are favorites with the locals. Thinking of visiting our hometown in November (or January or April …)? Bring a packable rain jacket that folds up nicely in a suitcase. Because there are varying levels of insulation to a women's rain jacket, plan your sweater underneath accordingly. And if the weather's extra bad—we've seen our fair share of sideways rain—don't forget some rain boots. Your feet will thank you.
