Rain jacket recommendations
October 20, 2013 7:23 AM   Subscribe

Anyone have recommendations for a men's, black, medium-weight, hooded rain jacket that has no logos?

Been looking for something used like this for over a year and have come up empty. Logos of the sort that can be cut off would be ok too.

Cheaper the better but I'll pay more for something that'll really, really last.

Is the same-color embroidery of this L.L. Bean jacket too logo-y for you?

The Outlier rainshell has a logo on the inside. I find that their price is fair, given the quality of the garments.

Nau still doesn't put logos on the outside of things. Their clothing quality has declined lately, but their outerwear is still quite well-made and long-lived. They've got a couple hooded rain jacket options. Nau tends to have good sales, and REI stocks them, so you can use their coupons, if you get them.

I was also going to suggest L.L. Bean. Good quality and value, great customer service. Minimal logo stitching can even be removed with a seam ripper I think.

I got one from Muji that I like a lot. No logo. Very handsome. Not sure if they still make it, I can't find it on their website.

This marmot jacket doesn't seem to have a logo except on the tag. It may be too heavy for you?

What are you using it for? You may benefit from reading this article.

Choosing features narrow this decision significantly. Do you want pit zips to vent, inside or outside pockets, or stretch fabric? Does it need to be compatible with a helmet or a climbing harness? Do you want more of a casual appearance, or would you prefer a technical outdoor garment?

I have the Patagonia Triolet which fits my needs well, but may not fit yours.

I love my Carhartt Men's Shoreline. I've had it for about 2 years now and it's held up to all kinds of horrible abuse. The logo on the front is a small patch that could easily be removed with a seam ripper or small scissors. There's some embroidery on the end of the sleeves that says something like "Waterproof Breathable" that could also probably be removed, or you might not care.

It might be a bit heavy, though. That jacket over a hoodie and I'm good down to the lower 40's, temperature-wise.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone.

Re use: General use, to work, walking for exercise, biking for exercise and transport, anything and everything.

Doesn't need to work with a helmet or harness.

More of a casual appearance.

The Triolet that I have definitely doesn't look fully casual, even in black. Instead might I recommend either the Marmot that jeffamaphone linked or this one, but the stitched logo might be a dealbreaker for you.

If it is, then I'd look at Nau, Outlier, or maybe Swrve.
