Choosing A Jacket

The weather is so unpredictable right now, but come rain or snow, one thing is for sure, you need a dependable, good quality jacket. But what do you choose?

Hard shell jackets consist of three layers, the inside layer being a porous breathable membrane which protects you from the rain but also allows your perspiration to move away from the body. On either side of this is a fabric layer which gives the overall look of the jacket. They are also treated with Durable Water Repellent treatment.

Soft shells also have the DWR treatment, but don’t use the inside membrane. They are more breathable than a hard shell, providing you with an appropriate amount of protection and meaning you don’t get sweaty while wearing it.

We have a selection of hard and soft shell coats, so whatever you need them for, you will find what you are looking for.
