The saying “Go big or go home” might ring a bell when it comes to a durable, hard-wearing piece of outerwear like the Topo Designs Anorak. It starts with the waterproof, breathable nylon, practically an essential fabric when it comes to taking on the elements.
The jacket’s well-made zippers also prevent water from getting into this jacket, while the front snap closure pocket provides a handy means to store your everyday carry (and any other odds and ends you might need on the trail). The tailored-but-reasonable fit also gives you the means to get around with mobility and speed in mind.
The brand’s American-made construction also guarantees excellent quality season after season — at least to us, that makes this jacket a surefire purchase. With an array of neutral colors available — including a sleek, commute-friendly black — this anorak should feasibly be the last one you need to buy for a very long time. – $289
