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.

Great jacket

Just thought it may have been warmer. Wellington wind seemed to cut through it. That of course was testing it to its max.

Tropic Waterproof Mesh Raincoat.

I just love the fresh bright colours that cheer my spirits and get me positive comments. I always point to the logo and say look up Scribbler online. The zip is a double bonus because it undoes at the bottom edge if you need to stretch your legs or drive using a gear shift. The colourful yellow zip is great and the poppers over the zip keep any wind out for extra warmth. I have tested it out in the rain and the elasticated undersleeves kept out water. The fold up or down sleeve cuffs are great The coat length is perfect as is your product. So well thought out. Even the packaging and delivery tracking kept us on track. Follow up to check if I am still happy is a bonus. 5 stars out of 5.Well done Scribbler.
