Advice on How to Choose the Best Waterproof Jacket
As with anything, it’s always good to be prepared. After all, that’s why you’re interested in a waterproof jacket, right? When deciding which jacket to buy, consider the following:
- Waterproof – this is an obvious one, but ask yourself why you’re looking for a waterproof jacket and what you’re planning to do in it. For example, an everyday winter jacket is different to one for sport or such activities.
- Appearance – how you’d like the jacket to look and your style preference will also be dictated by the practical use of the jacket. For example, a waterproof jacket you’d use for hiking, you wouldn’t wear to work every time it rains.
- Weight – heavier jackets tend to be warmer and this could be an issue if you’re intending to do extreme amounts of activity in the jacket. So again, consider the primary activity before committing to a purchase.
