Sandy Asks: Are Raincoats Still Dorky?

A quick look outside into the womb of Hurricane Sandy makes me yearn for a rain coat of yore. Not a long orange trench. Not a water resistant Stella McCartney x Adidas running windbreaker. I want a fully waterproof rain jacket that doesn't look like Mommy has to zip it up for me. Somewhere along the lines of teenagerdom, a proper raincoat became properly nerdy, so we drifted into the cool wetness. But with these raincoats to lead as an example, would you suit up waterproof again?
