With spring only a month away, options for spring outerwear are starting to show up everywhere. With so many to choose from, it’s really hard to go wrong. The key is just to make sure you’re getting the right jacket with the right features. Go for a classic style. A well made parka, anorak or raincoat should last for years, so the style you choose should carry you through those years and not become irrelevent or “out of style.” Also look for a jacket made of a cotton/nylon blend, lightweight waxed cotton, or even go the technical route with a fabric utilizing GORE-TEX technology. These are my favorite this year:
Stick with one of these or something similar, and any weather spring throws at you will be perfect.
