Best waterproof jackets
If you’re heading to the great outdoors don’t leave home without one
Arc’teryx Beta LT
A great spring/summer option, this jacket has a high-quality Gore-Tex waterproofing layer and two large pit vents to release heat. The hood is helmet compatible and the pockets can still be used with backpack straps tied across the front.
Berghaus Deluge Pro
A slightly more budget-friendly jacket, which offers good protection from the British weather. It has an easily adjustable hood and is relatively light (maximum 378g) so it’s one you can bring on a walk just in case of rain.
North Face Mountain Light
Despite its name, this jacket is a more heavyweight option. It will keep the rain out, but on strenuous walks it may also keep too much warmth in. Still, its retro design makes it a stylish choice.
Adidas Terrex Myshelter Active
This unlined shell jacket is very light, but will keep you dry in just about all weather conditions. With reflective design details it’s highly visible, but the fit can be loose so avoid sizing up.
Fjällräven Keb Eco-Shell
With unique features including its eco-shell fabric specifically designed for hiking, this jacket is top quality. It is highly durable and suitable for year-round use.
