Style Pick of the Week: Filson Ranger Anorak – Spring’s Best Rain Jacket for Men

Best men's rain jacket for spring.

Well, my friends: We aren’t quite yet out of the woods in terms of spring rain and foul weather, so that’s where some of the best men’s spring gear is going to come in mighty handy. If you read the blog, you’re well aware of the fact that a heritage outfitter like Filson is the place to go for the best spring style essentials, picks that will serve you well even if you deal more frequently with a city commute than days in the backcountry.

Either way, a pick like the rugged, rough-and-tumble Filson Ranger Anorak is sturdy, substantial and tough yet easy to wear — and it’s all part of the jam-packed Filson New Arrivals section, here just in time to outfit you for whatever spring adventures are still on your list.

Helpfully, the Filson Ranger Anorak carries on all the hallmarks of the brand you’ve come to know and love, whether you recently shopped the Filson Warehouse Sale or whether you’ve had some trusty Filson gear on hand for years now. With the Pacific Northwest outfitter, fabric is everything and the water-resistant waxed cotton of the Filson Ranger Anorak gets the job done, and then some.

Inspired by, as the brand says, vintage Arctic gear, this rugged anorak streamlines and lightens things up a bit, with design inspiration also coming by way of mountaineering and WWII-era artic smocks.

Best anorak for men to wear now.

Colors like Dark Navy and Olive Drab give the Filson Ranger Anorak a classic look and feel, but the Expedition Orange colorway (with contrasting white detailing) is also a standout touch if you like your outerwear with just a touch of flair on drab days. There are helpful touches like a front snap-button pouch pocket, plus a front kangaroo-style pocket, while the drawcord waist offers maximum coverage in rainy, windy conditions.

Plus, the double-layer back on the Filson Ranger Anorak adds durability, while the large drawcord hood turns this hard-wearing anorak jacket into a true foul-weather companion. For good measure, the Filson Ranger Anorak offers room to layer other essentials you need on a brisk day, from a rugged Filson henley to your favorite lightweight flannel shirt.

Luckily, Filson has each of those picks in spades, but it’s the Filson Ranger Anorak that’s going to offer up supremely effective coverage this season. Act accordingly and shop now, my friends.
