The Difference Between Waterproof & Water Resistant | Inside the Outdoors

When it comes to selecting the perfect jacket for your outdoor adventures, there are several things to consider. One of the most important factors to keep in mind is the level of protection the jacket can offer against water. But with terms like "waterproof" and "water-resistant" being thrown around, it's easy to get confused about what each of these terms really means. In this blog post, we'll help you understand the difference between waterproof and water-resistant jackets and how to choose the right one for your needs.


Waterproof vs. Water-Resistant Jackets

Waterproof jackets are designed to keep water from penetrating the fabric and reaching your skin. These jackets are typically made from a special type of fabric that is coated or laminated with a waterproof membrane or material. The seams of a waterproof jacket are also sealed to prevent water from seeping through.


On the other hand, water-resistant jackets are designed to repel water to a certain degree, but they are not completely waterproof. Water-resistant jackets are typically made from a tightly woven fabric or have a durable water repellent (DWR) coating that causes water to bead up and roll off the fabric. However, prolonged exposure to rain or heavy rain can still make its way through the fabric and soak your clothes.


Choosing the Right Jacket

The level of protection you need from your jacket depends on the type of activity you plan to engage in and the weather conditions you're likely to encounter. If you'll be spending a lot of time in the rain or snow, a waterproof jacket is the better choice. If you're engaging in a less intense activity, such as a light hike or a casual walk, a water-resistant jacket should suffice.


If you're looking for a jacket that can handle both rain and wind, a hooded jacket like a waterproof rain jacket or a tech jacket would be the ideal choice. The hood will protect your head and neck from getting soaked, while the rest of the jacket repels rain and wind.

Zipper jackets are also popular among outdoor enthusiasts. They offer versatility and allow you to easily adjust your temperature as needed. And if you're looking for something more stylish, a mens hooded jacket or a windbreaker outfit can keep you looking good while also providing protection from the elements.
