REI Trailmade Rain Jacket: <a href="https://classic.avantlink.com/click.php?color=BIRCH+BROWN%2FORANGE+CALCITE&tt=cl&mi=10248&pw=27131&ctc=hawk-custom-tracking&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.rei.com%2Fproduct%2F217400%2Frei-co-op-trailmade-rain-jacket-mens%3Fcolor%3DBIRCH%2520BROWN%252FORANGE%2520CALCITE" data-link-merchant="rei.com"" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">was $69 now $34
REI makes high-quality jackets that often rival the features and tech found in much pricier options, particularly from brands like Patagonia and The North Face. And the Trailmade Rain Jacket is a great example. Even at its regular price of $69, this is a super deal. But $34 for such a stylish, water-resistant shell is just bonkers.

The black full-zip fleece is a cool-weather staple in any closet. And this super-soft option from Columbia is as perfect for outdoor adventures as it is for bopping around town — wear it as your main or under a heavier weatherproof outer. It features lowkey branding and hand-warmer pockets.

Cotopaxi makes the best-looking high-tech jackets on the market, IMHO. And $74 for this fashionable, reversible synthetic insulated puffer is an absolute steal. Like two jackets in one, the Teca Calido is super warm, lightweight and packable.

There are water-resistant jackets that will keep you dry, in a pinch, for short periods.
