It's that time of the year again! As winter approaches, it's a good time to take stock of your cold-weather wardrobe. You may have all the hats, gloves, and scarves you need, but do you have a top-notch men's winter coat to help you get through the season comfortably? Make room for one or two of these practical and fashionable styles; here are a few of the best winter jackets for men.
It's cold. Brutally cold. You're not about to head out in a lightweight jacket, but you don't really need a heavy down coat, either. Whether you're running errands in sweats on the weekend or headed to the office in a men's dress shirt and slacks, you can easily throw on your waterproof Squall® parka and easily feel much better about the situation. This style is a dream for chilly days: It's built with a wind- and moisture-proof nylon shell and features a sinfully soft fleece lining for a blanket-like quality inside.
If you love men's winter parkas but need something a bit more heavy-duty than a waterproof design, look to an incredible Rusk Parka instead. It combines three very key features: down, air and PrimLoft®. You receive the benefits of a soft (and great-looking!) quilted outer layer, coupled with 600-fill power down and a layer of 100-gram PrimaLoft inside. The result? A warmer garment that allows you to feel more like you're wrapped in a blanket.
Meet the not-so-ordinary jacket. The Expedition puffer is a fresh alternative to every other grab-and-go coat out there. It stands out from the rest, thanks to its ability to handle temperatures between -43° to -12°F with complete ease. Its innovative jacket-in-jacket design keeps you as warm as possible by trapping body heat inside and preventing those tell-tale chilly spots from overwhelming you. It's essentially your best friend this winter, whether it's merely grazing the freezing line or downright unbearable out there.
For those who prefer the advantage of a little length, the Stadium Squall® long coat is destined to be your most dependable companion during the season. This topper is built to handle the chilliest temperatures with ease. It's made with a durable nylon shell that repels both wind and water and is seam-sealed to lock out moisture. You'll stay extra warm, thanks to the addition of insulation throughout the lower body, hood, and sleeves, and it provides additional coverage to ensure you stay as toasty as possible.
Easy does it in an ever-reliable Squall® hooded jacket, a rugged topper that's more than equipped to keep you toasty on those days when you need to lock out the moisture and the wind but don't need too much lining. Throw it on over a men's cardigan sweater, slip into your favorite jeans, pull on a pair of rugged boots and you'll be ready to face it all with ease.
Don't let your fear of wearing something too heavy keep you away from a packable down jacket. There are several reasons it's such a smart choice, not the least of which is that you can fold it into its own pocket when you're on the go. Its real advantage, however, is the 800-fill power down, which is lightweight enough to feel like a cozy sweater, yet robust enough to keep you warm when temperatures fall between -8° to 15°F. The water-repellent fabric will keep you dry when you need protection the most.
With its military-inspired roots, the bomber jacket is an eternal favorite that is built to perform like a true superstar all season long. The style was a wardrobe essential during World War I, and it's easy to understand what makes it such an essential even today: It's short, comfortable, and easy to wear on long drives. Features like banded sleeves and a close-fitting hem make it great for locking in body heat when it's chilly out there. The bonus? A detachable faux fur hood that exudes cool-guy vibes.
You can never go wrong with a handsome wool overcoat. It's an exceptional choice if your tastes lean more toward the refined side and you crave warmth without any bulk. A magnificent topper is destined to be a seasonal favorite for years to come because of its ability to withstand temperatures between 5° to 25°F. Pair it with your finest cold-weather pieces, from men's cashmere sweaters to crisp dress shirts.
What's more classic than … well, a true classic? Since its inception in the 1980s, the Squall® jacket has been a trustworthy coat that keeps people warm on the chilliest of days. It's a reliable option, but it's also one that looks just as good during the first day of the season as the last. It provides maximum-level protection from both moisture and wind with features like a soft fleece lining plus zippered pockets to keep your essentials close at hand. Wear it with your favorite pair of men's jeans for an effortless look that defines winter comfort.
You can never go wrong with a classic men's winter vest. It's ideal if you need a mid-layering piece to wear over a flannel shirt on brisk days that don't necessarily require a coat. The right vest for chilly weather is made with water-repellent polyester that is quilted for a handsome and refined finish. With hip pockets and 100 grams of quality insulation, you can trust it to keep you toasty when you need just a hint of extra warmth.
No matter the temperature, these 10 coats will keep you warm, comfortable, and stylish all winter long.
