Rain Jackets
It's rare that any of us throw on a jacket that's purely designed to keep the rain out; because modern rain jackets are usually capable of much more than 'just' being waterproof for sports activities, leisure or travel. Nowadays, waterproof, unlined jackets are often called hardshells – but what makes a hardshell a good rain jacket? According to the Swiss EMPA, a hardshell is waterproof from a water column of 4000 mm. But, if you're going to be active in your jacket you'll need to pay attention to its breathability too. After all, what good is a waterproof rain jacket that gets wet on the inside during moderate exercise? If you're really only interested in rain protection, you'll also find simple models that serve this purpose for little money.

Buy the perfect rain jacket at Addnature

A jacket that keeps you dry when the sky opens is arguably the first piece of outdoor clothing you should purchase. Choosing the right kind of waterproof or rain jacket can be a very daunting task, and with so many different kinds of designs, fabrics and features available, finding the right one can be difficult.

Whether you’re looking for a rain jacket for the sake of convenience or you’re a true outdoor enthusiast, this guide will help you find the most suitable one for you.

Layers and activities

When you’re planning on investing in a rain jacket, first determine what type of activity you want to use it for. Are you looking for a basic rain jacket to wear when running errands and mooching about town or are you looking for something more technical?

There are three types of design available: 2, 2.5, and 3-layer jackets. 2-layer jackets are comprised of an inner fabric bonded to a ‘face fabric’. 2.5-layer jackets are similar to 2-layer, but with an additional sprayed-on layer that bonds to the outer layer. With three-layer jackets, you get an additional textile or fabric on top.

  • 2-Layer Rain Jackets
  • These rain jackets come in at a moderate price and are extremely common – typically used as travel or urban rainwear. These jackets usually don’t come with armpit ventilation such as armpit zips, so they’re not ideal for intense physical activities. If you're looking for a moderately-priced rain jacket to roam around town in, a 2-layer model could be perfect for you.

  • 2.5-Layer Rain Jackets
  • 2.5-layer rain jackets usually come equipped with arm ventilation, making them better for intense activities where you may sweat a lot. These jackets are lightweight and can easily be packed into your bag. If you’re an outdoor fanatic and are looking for a capable jacket but are on a budget, a 2.5-layer jacket is the perfect place to start.

  • 3-Layer Rain Jackets
  • These jackets are the heaviest, most durable and most expensive style on the market. Thanks to their tough construction, they’re able to withstand the harshest weather conditions. Although they’re usually made with GORE-TEX, these jackets are also manufactured using other equally-reputable membranes such as Hyvent, eVent, and Dry.Q.

    If you spend most of your time outdoors and are often out in harsher weather, do yourself a favor and invest in 3-layer rain jacket.

Technical Features

Some features to look at before investing in a rain jacket include durability, colour and the number of pockets. Keep on reading to find out more about these features.

  • Hood Size
  • Having to constantly readjust your jacket to focus on whichever activity you’re doing can be very annoying - especially if you’re cycling, climbing or skiing. It’s therefore important that you invest in a model that has a hood with toggles that can be held in place.

  • Pockets
  • Another key feature to consider when shopping for a rain jacket is the number of pockets and where they are placed. Remember that more pockets often equal a more expensive jacket. Look for jackets that have chest pockets, so you can easily reach them and stow away your essentials when it starts raining.

    Also, if you’re just looking for a jacket to use around town, having four pockets probably isn’t necessary.

  • Laminated Zippers and Taped Seams
  • Most rain jackets come with a laminated zipper and taped seams that help keep the rain out and you dry. Even though most modern rain jackets are made with taped seams, not all jackets come with a laminated zipper. Instead of this, most manufacturers make use of a storm flap which simply protects the zipper from direct exposure to rain.

    Jackets that come with laminated zippers are always covered at the top of the zip: this little cover is known as a zipper hut or a garage and works to keep your zipper protected from the elements.

  • Packable
  • Many rain jackets are ultra light and extremely packable; providing you with rain protection without hindering your performance or weighing you down. These jackets are extremely handy and convenient and thus especially appreciated by minimalists or those for whom bag space is at a premium.

Conclusion

It’s essential that you pick the right size when looking for a rain jacket. This way, you remain protected from the rain from all angles and whatever activity you’re doing remains unaffected.
