The N types have gasket built in so they are in fact more weather resistant.
However I still used butyl tape + Electrical tape on my outdoor connections.
There are in fact, two gaskets in a type N connector. There is the gasket on
the shell that mates the male to the female and a gasket where the shield is
clamped to the body of the shell. This is true on both the 5 piece and two
piece N male connectors.
That said, to ensure proper weatherproofing, you need to following Ryan's as
well as other's suggestions.
