The hard-to-find Veilance line from Vancouver-based Arc'teryx adapts technology developed for the great outdoors for items geared more toward urban living. The Monitor coat is made of thin Gore-Tex® 3L, a fabric that repels water but is still lightweight and breathable (it sounds simple but is actually mind-blowingly complicated). It's finished with a StormHood™ (their speak for a really, really good hood) and taped seams and has ample zippered pockets, including one inside. Our favorite part? It comes with a travel pouch, so you can pack it in your carry-on and still have room for all your other stuff.
StormHood with adjustable drawcords.
Hidden zip closure with wind flap.
Slant pockets, external chest pocket with hidden zips, interior chest pocket, interior document pocket with zips.
