How to Find the Right Winter Jacket or Vest
Looking for the right jacket this winter? Use these guidelines to find the outerwear that’s right for you:
- Layers: If you need a little extra versatility, try a three-in-one system jacket. This style can be customized based on the varying weather of the day. Or try layering a lightweight fleece jacket beneath a soft shell jacket.
- Water Resistant vs. Waterproof: Water-resistant styles have some permeability. This outerwear is breathable and comfortable for a variety of activities. Waterproof styles, however, completely block water penetration for superior protection, though they often limit breathability. Some materials are actually designed to repel moisture on contact.
- Lining: Inner liners promote comfort and warmth when you need it most. Look for fleece, microfleece or soft brushed fabric—particularly if you’ll be spending long hours outdoors.
- Cold-Weather Training: Working out in the cold? Try a vest or running jacket. These options allow for increased mobility.
- Temperature: For extreme conditions, choose an insulated jacket. Jackets typically come with temperature designations or guidelines. The level of warmth provided is designated by the jacket’s “fill rating.” The higher the fill rating, the more warmth the jacket will provide.
- Natural vs. Synthetic Insulation: Though natural down insulation has a superior warmth-to-weight ratio, synthetic insulation is much more water resistant.
