Water-resistant and Showerproof Jackets
For use in light rain and mild weather a showerproof or water-resistant jacket should be sufficient. A water-resistant jacket has a water repellent finish which will cause rain droplets to roll off the fabric rather than be absorbed into it. However water-resistant fabric is not fully waterproof and without taped seams rain can still leak through where the parts are stitched together.
Fully Waterproof Jackets
Even a cheap waterproof jacket has a waterproof coating or membrane which prevents water penetrating the fabric. To make a jacket fully waterproof it should have taped seams, which means the seams have been covered or welded to stop water getting through the stitching.
The waterproofing level of fully waterproof jackets is denoted by “hydrostatic head” The hydrostatic head measurements range from 2000mm to 15000mm, the higher the hydrostatic head the longer the fabric will remain waterproof.
The Action & Adventure range of softshell jackets will offer light protection for a more active lifestyle - perfect for running etc. While a 3-in-1 jacket, including a shell and separate inner jacket can’t be beaten for warmth and versatility, if skiing is your passion our cheap ski jackets are for you.
