Why You Should Buy Prana’s Bestselling Outdoor Jacket on Amazon

Prana Men's Trembly Jacket

Fall is a fickle beast. Unless you live at the extreme corners of the U.S. (we’re looking at you, Florida and Hawaii), you likely need to prepare for sun, rain, cold, snow, hail, and locust swarms — often all in the same day. Of course, layering is key. But a well-designed men’s jacket is just as important. For fall, that means lightweight materials that wear well, look good, and keep you comfortable in a wide range of weather. We scoured Amazon Fashion for some of the best, more affordable options. Once again, Prana delivers with its men’s Tremly Jacket.

This deceptively simple top layer is versatile, rugged, and handsome. Thanks to a blended face fabric of 98% heavy garment, washed organic cotton, it’s light and comfortable enough to wear in the mild heat of a fall day. The addition of 2% spandex provides just enough stretch where you need it most. Plus, a quilted taffeta lining and 40g high-loft polyester insulation mean it’s surprisingly warm when the mercury drops.

Prana Men's Trembly Jacket Pocket
The Trembly offers a standard fit with enough room throughout to allow for additional layers. The exterior design is streamlined and muted with a front tack button closure with zig-zag stitch detail on the placket. It’s an aesthetic that feels equally at home on the trail or the streets. A chest pocket with a snap closure stows your smallest personal effects. Inside, a zippered pouch with a media port securely hides your smartphone or passport. It’s just enough organizational space to wrangle your EDC. Twin handwarmer pockets promise to keep your digits toasty in colder weather.

Prana Men's Trembly Jacket
Some technical adventure jackets and waterproof jackets cost north of $400. Unless you’re an expedition climber, most of those are overkill. The Prana Men’s Trembly Jacket is available on Amazon for less than $150 in Charcoal, Embark Brown, or Slate Green. Of course, shopping for men’s clothing online that you can’t try on in person is challenging. The Amazon Wardrobe program guarantees free shipping and returns on tons of apparel, including menswear. That means you can try before you buy for seven days and only pay for the clothes that work for you. Keep what you like, and send the rest back with no risk or obligation.

I never go to the coast without this jacket from Royal Robbins
This anorak is cozy and built for adventure
The author wearing the wearing the Royal Robbins Merced Anorak on the Oregon coast.

Whenever I head out to coastal Oregon, I never know how to dress. No matter how often I check the forecast, the weather often turns out to be the exact opposite of what I've prepared for once I've made the hour-and-a-half drive out to the Pacific. If I wear a heavier jacket for a grey, foggy hike through one of the area's many state parks, it'll warm up as soon as I arrive, and I'll be drenched in sweat after a mile or two. If I'm hoping for a sunny walk around Cannon Beach, the rain will come through and the wind will whip up, leaving me running back east to chase the sun.

But this spring, I found a solution in a jacket that's built for all of these situations and then some.
Why I love Royal Robbins' Meced Anorak Jacket
This Merced Anorak from Yosemite Valley-inspired outfitter Royal Robbins has quickly become my go-to outdoors jacket. This lightweight, nylon windbreaker keeps me comfortable in just about any weather out in the Pacific Northwest. It's thick enough to be a decent lightweight cover-up in cool temperatures but still thin enough to not get too heated when the sun comes out. The wind resistance this half-zip provides is next-level compared to any other jacket I own — no matter how the wind comes off the waves, I know it'll never chill me to the bone.
