Stay Dry in Style with the Best Rain Jackets for Men

Sometimes it feels like the best respite from a rainy day is to stay inside next to a warm fire with our hand curled around a glass of good whiskey.

Unfortunately, jobs, friends, and the business of life mean we’ve got to get out and brave the elements. Whether that be a quick run from the house to the car to the office or a long-term commitment like a hike in the woods or a morning jog, we’ve still got to endure the rain. Luckily, today’s raincoats are a far cry from dear old Dad’s standard belted trench coat. Modern fibers, fabrics, and treatments keep today’s rain jackets and coats lightweight, while able to withstand monsoon-like downpours.

We’ve chosen a range of classic to sporty models that are sure to be up to your personal sartorial — and meteorological — standards.

Johnston & Murphy Modern Twill Raincoat – $198

The outer shell is a water-resistant twill that is complemented by a half-quilted liner for zip-in/zip-out warming, as well as a zip-up bib that adds another layer of comfort.

The M65 field jacket is an iconic style based on a model that the U.S. Army released in — you guessed it — 1965. Retaining that tough, military edge, Proof updates the jackets with contemporary fabric and fill. The Field Jacket has built-in stretch for ease of movement and easily accessible pockets so you won’t have to unzip to find your phone or keys.

Spotlighting another iconic silhouette, the mountain parka gets an update from Flint & Tinder. Incorporating Japanese fabric that is water and tear-resistant and riding that line between military and sporting style, this shell is perfect as a first layer, protecting from rain now. And then thrown over a vest, sweater, or fleece jacket once the flurries start to fly.

Barbour Sapper Jacket – $429

We can’t even talk about raincoats without mentioning Barbour. The brand has been perfecting rainwear in the U.K. since 1894, practically making an art form of treating jackets for water resistance way before modern hydrophobic fabrics were developed. Barbour still manufacturers outerwear by hand in its South Shields factory. The Sapper jacket features a signature corduroy collar and waxed cotton fabric, with sleek, handsome styling.

Fully water resistant—made with a polyamide and cotton blend—with taped seams and a detachable hood, Gant’s The City raincoat is made and behaves like some of the more active/outdoorsy branded coats on our list, but is styled like a truly classic raincoat, including a banker-stripe interior. It’s dressy enough to throw on over a suit or jacket for work, but sporty enough to handle a pair of jeans and a sweatshirt with ease.
