The most versatile for me is definitely a pea coat, unless you wear suits and/or blazers often. I'm biased against the duffell as it doesn't look nearly as smart as the pea. For a second more formal coat that covers suit jackets and can still be worn casually, I'd go with a topcoat that goes down to mid-thigh to knee. Another option is a bridge coat, which is just a longer pea coat.
