Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, which means Spring is right around the corner. If you need a lightweight jacket to knock around in, the anorak is the go to garb whether you are hiking or just hanging out. The Mountain Classic Anorak ($49.95) from L.L. Bean is windproof, water resistant, packable, and it’s under $50. Made from two-ply nylon, it feels like cotton and folds into the front pocket.
If you plan on hitting the slopes in the next couple of months, you might want to stock up on a light-weight shell to keep you dry and warm. The TREW Soft Shell Anorak ($200) is a great addition to any man’s winter wardrobe. It’s light-weight (only 12 ounces!), water-resistant, and wind-proof with full-range motion and comfort.
Add a new lightweight, weatherproof shell to your fall wardrobe with the Fred Perry Colourblock Cagoule (~$185). From the brand that pioneered the polo, this manly piece of outerwear gives you a rugged, yet stylish option for cooler weather. 100% cotton with a kangaroo pocket.
Finally a cool front after months of stifling heat. Keep your core warm in the cool Autumn weather with the Patagonia Men’s Slingshot Down Vest ($129). 100% polyester ripstop shell fabric filled with goose down will make sure you are comfortable and free to move about as you do manly things, like split wood for the fire.
