The autumn season is just a few weeks away. And that means that it’s time to start planning to turn over your wardrobe, pack away those summer things, and begin incorporating seasonal outerwear. Autumn can be a tricky time of year as it’s not cold enough to warrant a parka, but it still gets chilly enough where you need something to ward of the cooler temperatures. So, you need something of an in-between jacket. And for guys, if it’s time to refresh your wardrobe for the coming season, these top picks from Amazon are great options.

This jacket from Wulful features a cotton shell and is fully lined for added warmth on those cooler Fall days. It features a rugged yet sleek look with plenty of pockets, a stand-up collar, and a structured fit. The sleeves can also be rolled up for a more casual effect.

Dickies Men’s Insulated Eisenhower Front-Zip Jacket

This zip-front jacket is a perfect example of the Dickies aesthetic. The sleek and minimalist design features low profile front side pockets, a sturdy zipper and is fully lined and insulated—making it the perfect jacket for a chilly Fall day whether you’re working on your car in the garage or spending all day outdoors.

Columbia Men’s Glennaker Lake Front-Zip Rain Jacket with Hideaway Hood

For many people, the Fall is a great time to go hiking or spend more time outside in general. So, for those outdoor enthusiasts, they need a jacket that’s more functional than anything else. Columbia is a household name that’s known for creating sturdy outdoor apparel that can stand up to water, extreme temperatures, and keep your warm and dry without making you sweat. The Glennaker Lake jacket is meant to be used during bad weather. The waterproof jacket features the brand’s signature Omni-tech fabric for superior protection. Yet, the fabric is also moisture-wicking and breathable. Best of all, the collar also doubles as a hidden closure for the hideaway hood to help protect you from the elements.

WEEN CHARM Men’s Military Jacket

Military jackets are a staple for both men and women’s fashion. And this variation features a hood, which gives you added protection on those rainy Fall days. The Ween Charm jacket features a zippered and button closure for added protection from those windy moments. The structured design has a standing collar, reinforced stitching, and plenty of pockets to carry your essentials—including an interior chest pocket. The sleeves can also be comfortably rolled up for a more casual effect.

Columbia Men’s Voodoo Falls Down Jacket

Depending on where you live, the Fall can get pretty cold. And if this is the case for you, you might need to transition into a more serious coat or jacket sooner than the rest of us. Once again Columbia makes the list with a classic and very popular style. Their Voodoo Falls Down jacket is a fan favorite and for good reason. Its low profile design doesn’t make you look bulky, yet it’s constructed to keep you warm and toasty. The jacket is filled with a combination of 550-fill-power-down and also features 40 grams of insulation. The reflective material also helps to further insulate you while still providing the water-resistance and moisture-wicking qualities that you’ve come to expect from a Columbia garment.
