About Rains Canada

Ready to help you dance through downpours, Rains jackets make the rain fun by keeping you stylish and decidedly dry.

Redefining Rainwear: A Brief History of Rains

Rains started with one simple mission, to change the standards for rainwear. Started in Copenhagen in 2012, this Danish company combines an intimate knowledge of rain and transforms it into innovative outerwear. The company was founded by Daniel Brix and Phillip Lotko, who met while at the same design school in Denmark. Denmark averages roughly 170 days of rain a year, so rain is a constant environmental hurdle that presented a design opportunity.
Rains Canada collections blend innovation with function, trying to plug fashion into the formally drab world of rainwear. The designs come from a strong urban inspiration, blending it with a Scandinavian aesthetic to create some ...truly unique offerings. Canadian are no strangers to rain, and the applicability of these outerwear offerings is obvious.
Similar to other outerwear specialists like Mackage, Canada Goose and Nobis, Rains wants its offerings to not only protect you from the weather but give you an outlet to showcase individuality through style and design. The next time the skies open up, instead of reaching for a forgettable raincoat or umbrella, grab a Rains outerwear piece instead.
