Are you in search of a field jacket that is really practical? Go for those that come with several pockets and comfortable cotton lining. If the outer fabric is of mixed fiber, your body is able to keep cool and comfortable with the inner cotton layer that is in direct contact with your skin.
Some jackets have only four pockets and they are all open; none of them can be zipped. Men with busy field trips and some very sensitive tools with them need safe and protecting pockets. If the pocket is zipped there is no possibility that any of your possessions in the pocket may slip out while you do not notice. Button up pockets is also a safe idea but not as much as the zipped pockets are!
Color choice is up to you and there are many rugged and attractive colors that perfectly suit your field jacket. The colors are chosen with full consideration of the circumstances a jacket is used and are kept dull and rugged to cover miner stains and dirt signs. Therefore, do not look for light colored elegant jackets as they do not prove to be practical, no matter how carefully you use them.
Wearing a field jacket protects you from many troubles while you are on a field trip. Keep with you a couple of field jackets if your job imposes upon you multiple field trips frequently. Choose two different and most trendy colors to keep your outlook refreshing and handsome!
