It might look like wool tweed, but Chrome’s take on the field jacket is actually cut from a fully taped waterproof breathable material that has kept me dry on long, wet jaunts on the bike. The arms and torso are long to keep out spray when you’re in the drops. There’s a stowable hood, reflective straps at the cuffs that conceal easily for when you’re not riding, a hidden rear cargo pocket, and a subtle reflective detail on the nape of the neck for visibility. It’s a fully featured coat for riding in the rain—minus the bright plastic-bag look of most outdoor jackets. $250
