April Shower Solutions: Our Top Picks For Coats & Umbrellas

Summer may seem as though it’s just around the corner, but as this week’s weather has proven, it’s all too easy to get caught in a sudden April shower. If you’re looking for something to fend off an unexpected cloudburst without weighing you down, we at Universal Textiles have a variety of transitional jackets and umbrellas to keep warm and dry until the summer months arrive. Take a look at our top April shower solutions below!

Whilst a sunny spring day may signal the approach of warmer weather, slipping on your shorts and t-shirt too soon may leave you more soggy than sunkissed. This Brave Soul Survivor Transitional Jacket is perfect for unpredictable conditions, combining a comfortable, lightweight build with a special showerproof finish, ensuring that rain is kept at bay without bringing you out in a sweat. For women, this Brave Soul Rave Jacket brings together fashion and functionality, coupling equally effective showerproofing with an eye-catching floral pattern.

For those seeking something even more convenient, this SOLS Shore Packaway Windbreaker Jacket offers water resistant and windproof protection in a design that folds neatly away into the jacket’s front right pocket. Younger customers are also well catered for, with our Boys and Girls Packaway Jackets being the perfect choice for parents looking to keep kids dry on the way to school or during trips out.

Though somewhat unwieldy in windy conditions, a quality umbrella can prove to be an invaluable tool when faced with an unforeseen downpour. Available in London and New York designs, this stylish Compact Close Cityscape Umbrella is the perfect choice for those looking to stay dry whilst on the move, and this Kimood Auto Open Walking Umbrella is a smart, sleek choice for sheltering two people from the elements.
