Dockworkers aren't glamorous, but they were the first to figure out the utility of a killer peacoat. G Lab's Helmsman Tech Men's Jacket isn't a classic peacoat, but its style is certainly informed by the utilitarian jackets that came before it, and it's even more weatherproof than its predecessors, so it's the perfect choice for braving the urban elements with style, if not for going to work down by the docks. The backbone of this weather beating jacket is the three layer waterproof and breathable membrane, which keeps you dry without making you feel clammy or sticky. The synthetic fabric is treated with a Teflon DWR coated, which encourages water to bead up and run off rather than soaking in, and G Lab finished the seams with full taping, preventing moisture from sneaking in through tiny gaps. A good peacoat has to keep you warm as well as dry. The Helmsman accomplishes this task with a zip out thermal jacket, which features knit cuffs to trap heat close to your skin without feeling bulky or excessively steamy. It also features a removable knit lambswool collar as well as fleece lined hand pockets that let you bundle up against the chill when you're strolling along the shore on a breezy November afternoon.
