It's refreshing to see a waterproof field jacket specifically designed for female photographers, especially from a brand as well respected as Finisterre. Since 2003, the Cornwall-based surf brand has been dedicated to providing functional and sustainable outdoor wear that can bear the brunt of North Atlantic gales and relentless rain. 

The Finisterre Women's F2.8 Field Jacket is inspired by hardy surf photographers who regularly withstand cold, wet, miserable conditions to get the perfect shot. It's purposely oversized so that lots of layers can be worn underneath providing warmth and comfort and has adjustable sleeves, a full-length zip and poppers, a drawstring hood, and a stiff peaked hood so that photographers can easily look down the viewfinder without it getting wet.
