The days might be getting longer but the drizzle is certainly here to stay. We’ve scoured the internet to find five jackets that are built to combat precipitation.
Gramicci Cordura Rip Jacket (Black)
Featuring some seriously slick water-resistant ripstop CORDURA®, this Gramicci jacket is a bit of a techwear dream. Taped overlays, lots of pockets, crinkly black fabric… you get the gist. Lined with recycled polyester for extra insulation, you’ll stay warm and dry this winter if this is your coat of choice.
Battenwear Scout Anorak (Green)
Everyone loves a smock don’t they? First released by Battenwear in 2014, the Scout Anorak has become a firm fan favourite. Packed to the brim with technical details, the raglan sleeves and extra deep side zips make getting in and out of this smock an absolute breeze. Finished off with a water-repellent nylon shell, I think this might be the perfect jacket for walking to the Co-op when it’s pissing it down.
Patagonia Torrentshell 3L Jacket (Olive)
If unpretentious outerwear is your thing, look no further than the Patagonia Torrentshell. A great normcore staple for keeping the elements at bay, it’s recycled nylon construction utilises Patagonia’s trusted 3-layer H2No™ technology for exceptional waterproof/breathable performance. In other words, it’s really good at keeping you dry. For best results, wear it with a pair of chunky knitted mittens.
And Wander Nylon Taffeta Hooded Jacket (Pink)
I think layering might possibly be the most overused term in menswear, that being said, this jacket from And Wander is genuinely really good for layering. Constructed by hand in Japan from nylon taffeta fabric, it’s a super lightweight wind and water-resistant outer layer that’s perfect If you’re looking to inject some colour into your raingear rotation. It’s also got a flashy 3M logo, so you can make sure everyone knows that you’re well into technical Japanese outdoor brands.
Adsum Marsu Jacket (Gold)
The Marsu jacket from North American tastemakers Adsum, is a breathable taped-seam delight. Constructed from waterproof nylon fabric, it features three substantial front pockets and some stealthy underarm ventilation zips. The gold colour adds a touch of understated regal class, it’s the sort of rain jacket you still want to wear when it’s not raining.
