A Good Waxed Jacket Is Perfect for the Winter to Spring Transition

Among the outerwear styles that should be in your rotation as we move (ever so slowly) from winter into early spring, the waxed jacket reigns supreme. A good waxed jacket offers seasonal style and functionality that fits right in during other seasons, too.  Think late winter and fall. And that’s because upgrading your traditional cotton jacket with a wax finish gives it weather-ready qualities, which is part of the reason why this style of jacket has long been favored by all manner of explorers and adventurers in the field.

If your adventures keep you closer to home, our picks for the best waxed jackets will work just fine for cruising around the city.
