Upgrade Green – Men’s Winter Jackets

Fresh Men's Winter Outerwear

 A bulky wool coat is not the only thing capable of keeping you warm when the temperature dips. These five alternatives are more than up for the task.

Stay Puff Parka 

This parka is the streamlined, featherlight upgrade to the shapeless outer layers that drown the sharp lines of a well-tailored suit. It packs a 700-fill goose down which is certified by the Responsible Down Standard. $498; lululemon.com

Utility Down Shirt 

The winter season is business as usual, even for those whose livelihood involves working outside. This heritage-inspired shirt-jacket hybrid gives you the warmth you require, without impeding on your range of motion. It also comes with a snap collar that you can pop should the winds start getting rough. $235; nau.com

Yukon Sherpa Jacket

For those whose idea of a winter escape involve a rustic cabin and comforting whisky by the fireplace, the Yukon Sherpa is for you. It uses Hollowcore polyester, capable of retaining more warmth compared to the standard variety. Slip your hands in the warmer pockets whenever you feel like going out for a stroll. $169; toadandco.com

Royan Insulated Jacket 

An effortless play on fashion and function: This velcro-free jacket is breathable and sleek, just like the city-dweller that would appreciate putting it on top of his trusty knitwear. It has 60 grams of toasty Primaloft Black insulation to boot. $200; hellyhansen.com

Batten Down Jacket 

If there's ever a jacket that partners well with the needs of a winter traveler, this is the one. The fully insulated Batten Down has hidden pockets for safeguarding small essentials like your passport and your phone. It also packs into its own, eliminating the weightiest layer you have to shed to go through security. $170; royalrobbins.com
