Terra New York’s designer raincoats aren’t just PVC-free, they’re also made from solvent-free and biodegradable thermoplastic polyurethane, which breaks down in a landfill after 15 years of nonuse. The frost-white MOMA trench includes a double-breasted design, mesh vents for breathability, and heat-sealed seams to keep you bone dry.
