Everlane Men's Rain Jacket Raincoat

When it comes to shopping for new clothes, men really aren’t too picky. As long as you don’t force them to wear the color pink (god forbid), odds are, they’ll oblige without putting up too much of a fight. If there’s one investment piece that every guy needs, it’s a damn good rain jacket that can be sported beyond April showers. Because men are stubborn and forgetful, there’s a 95% chance he won’t remember to pack an umbrella anyway—despite your happy reminders to do just that (le sigh).

At a minimum, the optimal rain day slicker should be water repellent and include a hood justttt in case of a downpour. Steer clear of unsightly rain jackets that, err, look tacky and cheap. Spend a few extra dollars for a handsome topper that will make your man look (and feel) like Don Draper. 😉

If you’re stumped on what to gift the dad or husband who already has everything, look no further. Scroll through for the best raincoats for men—from a safari-worthy anorak to more full-length raincoats—that deserve to be front and center.
