A higher percentage of men love outdoor activities and doing things that are fun altogether. But many a times the weather becomes quite unfavorable for such activities probably because of rain.
We are all familiar with the old saying, “there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.” Sometimes planning an activity around the weather is hectic but with a rain jacket, the rain can be tolerable.
Therefore, with the right clothing you can go about your outdoor activities without having to worry about any changes in the weather. The design of the coat, materials used in the making and the style are all factors to consider when picking the right rain jacket for you.
Here are some of the most stylish and best men’s rain jackets in 2022:
Arc’teryx Beta LT
The Arc’teryx is a lightweight rain jacket which is most suited for any casual and any outdoor activity that you might have in mind. This series has a three-layer Gore-Tex fabrix with taped seams that keep any water from sipping in.
It also has a hood that is compatible with any helmet and can be adjusted to any desireable size. The Arc’teryx has the baggy stylish look that everyone loves.
Patagonia Torrentshell 3L
The Patagonia Torrentshell, as the name suggests, is a three layered jacket that has the Patagonia’s H2No Technology that manages its waterproof nature and manages the moisture as well.
It is a stylish piece featuring some functionalities such as an adjustable hood, pit zips and comes with its own hand pockets that you can store the jacket in, that is after you fold it.
Mountain Hardwear Stretch Ozonic Jacket
We all know that rain jackets are not the greatest source of sustainability but the Ozonic Jacket is the best sustainable rain jacket in the market. This is because it is made from 100% recycled material.
You can even see why it is called the stretch ozonic. It has an array of pockets where you can put your stuff in and just like the Torrentshell, one of the pockets can be used to store the jackets.
It also packs some sets of pit zips which come in handy should the weather turn warm.
Outdoor Research Helium Jacket
As the name suggests, the Helium jacket is the best rain jacket for outdoor activities such as hiking or biking. This is because it is a very light jacket of about 180g.
The downside for such a light jacket is that it has minimal features, the single chest pocket that serves as the only storage on this rain coat.
The North Face Dryzzle Futurelight Jacket
The futurelight is one of the best rain coats recommended for daily wear since it has a higher breathability than any other rain jacket in the market.
It does not have any pit zips, which might be a red flag for some people but a daily casual wear jacket does not necessarily need them. The hand pockets on it actually make up for the absence of the pit zips.
There you have it; 5 of the best rain jackets for men that you should check out.
