The weather isn’t always ideal for skateboarding in just a T-shirt, so finding a good jacket that is ultra-comfortable to cruise around and do tricks in is key. A good one should allow you to move freely without feeling constricting and withstand the wear and tear that comes with falling, which is pretty much inevitable. To help you find a style that is warm but also breathes and will look great as you do your thing, FN did some research and rounded up a few of the best skater jackets on the market for men. We selected our top picks from popular, well-respected brands like Adidas, Dickies and more.
1. Adidas Essentials Wind Jacket
This lightweight Adidas 3-Stripes windbreaker features a blend of moisture-wicking polyester and nylon.
Pros: Front-zip pockets securely hold smaller items. An elastic hem and cuffs help to lock in warmth while a mesh lining offers breathability. It has an adjustable hood for added coverage and comes in a variety of colors to choose from.
Cons: It may run slightly small.
2. Dickies Snap-Front Nylon Jacket
This Dickies front-snap jacket has a nylon shell with a polyurethane coating and DWR finish for water resistance.
Pros: A drawstring bottom and elastic cuffs prevent cold air from getting inside. Hand-warmer pockets offer enhanced comfort. A polyester lining draws any moisture away from the skin if you start to sweat. An inside pocket provides extra storage. It’s offered in a wide range of sizes.
Cons: This one has a larger fit.
3. Carhartt Full Swing Armstrong Jacket
A 100% ring-spun washed cotton duck exterior and stitched seams make this Carhartt jacket extremely durable yet soft.
