What’s not to like about subtle but eye-catching shimmer that’s practical, durable, and stylish? Also, water-repellent, wrinkle-resistant, and reversible?
We’re talking about rainwear from a Moraga-based company, with an oddly technical-sounding name, Mycra Pac, headed by local girl Sharon Huebschwerlen.
Huebschwerlen’s raincoats look dressy enough to be evening coats. The lightweight, washable garments also travel well and allow multiple looks.
East Bay retailers that carry Mycra Pac raincoats include Nordstrom in Pleasanton and Walnut Creek, and Edwards Luggage in Walnut Creek. Discounted coats are sold in an outlet store at the company’s headquarters at 535 Center Street in Moraga (open weekdays 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.).
Holiday shopper alert: There’s a discount sale December 3–6 in the adjacent parking area.
