Tropic waterproof mesh lined raincoat
A fresh, light and bright statement to inclement weather! The Tropic is your new best friend - this print goes with everything, all year round. Layer under it during winter, use it as an additional windbreak during warmer weather - you will wear this a lot.
Tell me quick:
Conscious fashion at its best - recycled plastic is used to create the lightweight outer waterproof fabric as well as the soft grey mesh lining.
All the deets:
Packable perfection. This rain jacket will fit in the tiniest of spots and weighing in at approx. 500g, is great to have with you for those unexpected, sparkly showers.
- Waterproof to 10 000mm (high), seam sealed (no water can reach you through the seams) and treated with DWR (Durable Water Repellent) means you won't get wet in a downpour with water beading off you like a duck's back. This is our highest rated waterproof level.
- Breathable to let water vapour escape while you're getting from home to work or whiling time away at the farmer's market on Saturday morning.
- Printed layer of fabric and mesh lining are both made from recycled plastic - this is feel good fashion all the way. Scribbler is so proud to finally be able to offer this to you.
- Reflective elements on side pockets, chest and back so that cars and others can see you in low light. New reflective edging on cuff.
- Two-way front zipper (YKK - cos they're the best) - so you can ride your bike/horse or sit in your car/a bus comfortably
- New hood shape with 3-way adjustable hood - because nobody wants water in their eyes when they're trying to see in front of them in a rain shower. Our new hood shape was based on research from our Scribbler fans - better peripheral vision, back of head adjustability and peak adjustability
- Zippered side pockets to keep your valuables dry and safe when out and about
- Internal pocket - for those extra special valuables you want to keep close to your heart (quite literally!)
- Storm flap over the front zip to keep things water tight for you
- Hidden elasticated cuffs to keep water from running down your arm (and cold shivers up your spine!)
- Palm cut out cuff for ease of use now with reflective on edge
- Longer back scoop to protect you even more when moving about
- Chin guard to protect your chin from the gorgeous yellow zip
Rae wears a size 8 (S) and Lan wears a size 16 (2XL).
Sizing: our styles are all slim fit, but check our sizing guide for help.
Sizes range from 6 (XS) - 22 (5XL).
To clean your coat we recommend washing with Nikwax Tech Wash. Then, if your jacket requires DWR re-proofing, wash with Nikwax TX.Direct. We sell a care bundle here with everything you need.
See our garment care guide here.
We know that sometimes when you're online shopping, you need to ask a couple of questions, so here are some that we get regularly. Hope these help. :)
An item is sold out - will you bring out any more like this?
We don't reprint any of our fabrics/styles in order to keep them unique and special. This way, you and your friends won't have the exact same coat! :)
Why are so many items sold out?
We are a small business and don't work in the same way as larger brands and companies. We take our time developing new styles and like to ensure everything is 'just so' before pressing 'play' on any production. We don't follow trends and try to create items that are timeless, beautiful and functional. We also don't do large production runs to ensure items are kept special and unique. You might need to wait a little longer for our new ranges, but we believe it is worth it!
Where can I try on your products?
We don't have our own stores, but we have some amazing stockists around New Zealand that have selected Scribbler products in stock. Take a look at this page to see if there is a store near you.
I have bought the wrong size - can I exchange for a different size?
If it's been less than 30 days, you haven't worn the item (it is in new, unworn condition) and it has all its original swing tags attached we will gladly do a size exchange (stock permitting). Please follow instructions within our refunds/exchange policy here: https://scribblergear.com/pages/returns-policy or start the returns process now: https://scribblergear.com/a/return
I am unsure which size to order... can you help?
We know online shopping can sometimes feel hard when it comes to sizing. To help with this, we have developed comprehensive size guides with measurements for each of our sizes and styles to give you as much detail as possible. You can find this here: https://scribblergear.com/pages/raincoat-sizing-chart

What is the best way to care for my Scribbler product?
Great question! We create products to last. Please refer to the care label within your product for instructions on how to best care for your Scribbler product. We have put together the following guide to help you look after your Scribbler coat. Read here: https://scribblergear.com/pages/how-to-care-for-your-waterproof-jacket
Are the colours and print placements on screen the same as in person?
We try our very best to colour match how garments are shown on our website, however, we cannot guarantee that they are a perfect match. Not all monitors show colours in the same way.
Many of our styles have repeat patterns all over. We cannot guarantee that these will always look exactly the same as in website photography. The placement of fabric for cutting will vary, making each item unique.
Do you sell gift vouchers?
Yes indeed we do! You can buy vouchers in the following denominations: $50, $75, $100, $200 and $250. Buy here: https://scribblergear.com/collections/the-scribbler-online-gift-card/products/gift-card
Can I send an item as a gift?
You sure can! Just ensure you enter the recipients address as the shipping address and your address as the billing address. Ask us about gift wrapping - firstname.lastname@example.org
Can Scribbler cancel an order I've made?
This is quite a rare occurrence, but it does happen from time to time when many people order the same item at the same time. Our system can over sell in error. You will usually receive an email from us letting you know, and offering you the option to exchange for another item or have a full refund.
Where do you ship to?
We ship worldwide!
Our policy lasts 30 days. If 30 days have gone by since your purchase, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund or exchange.
To be eligible for a return, your item must be unused (in new condition - no hair/dirt) and in the same condition that you received it. It must have all original swing tags attached.

We all know the weather just happens. There's no taming it or predicting it. Especially here in our own Aotearoa where there literally are 'Four Seasons in One Day'. One minute you're walking along the road, dry and happy as ever, the next, well, let's just say, you're contemplating using a cardboard box to save yourself from the wind and rain! Owning a SCRIBBLER raincoat will mean that you are never caught out by wild, untameable weather again.
But that doesn't mean that you have to compromise on style, either. All SCRIBBLER raincoats are designed with YOU in mind. We aim to create the most beautiful prints that we can, in stand-out, complementary colours. Our focus is on how our coats will look on you - we want you to feel and truly look amazing when you wear a SCRIBBLER.
With love from New Zealand.
We're not like the others
We are a small business and don't work in the same way as larger brands and companies.
We take our time developing new styles and like to ensure everything is 'just so' before pressing 'play' on any production. We want you to love what we make, and if we aren't sure, we don't go ahead until we are.
We don't follow trends but we do try to create truly unique items that are timeless, beautiful and yet are still really functional and deliver on their promise to you.
We keep our production runs small to ensure pieces are special and unique for you. This means that you might need to wait a little longer for our new ranges, but some things are definitely worth the wait. We think you'll agree.
