If you don't have anything at home yet and you have to buy one or the other, I would suggest a boat varnish. Usually it is Polyacrillic with additives to withstand all weather conditions and with UV blockers to last longer in the sun. I use yacht varnishyou can see on top of this page.
It is very hard to sand, but that's the whole idea, if you really want to protect it.
