Look fly while staying dry

Best men's rain jackets in 2022

Spring is in full effect and there's no better reminder than the scattered rain showers always looming overhead. Now that many of us are going back into the office (at least a couple of times a week), you need something to keep you dry for your commute. It can be taxing to have to carry your workbag and umbrella, so what's the next best thing if one has to go? A raincoat.

Some people would rather use an umbrella because they don't want to come off looking too tech-ish with their rain jacket, but we're ready to embrace that look. You can look cool and stay dry, you just need to find the right outerwear piece.

Anoraks, parkas, and bombers—there's a myriad of styles to choose from, but one thing they all focus on is functionality. Look for some warm-weather friendly fabrics like ripstop or nylon. These will travel well because they're usually packable and always water and wind resistant. From tried-and-true classics to more performance-based jackets, we've rounded up the best options to buy right now.
