Whether you're heading out into a thunderstorm or merely acquiescing to the infamous British drizzle, a waterproof jacket is a fine companion to have on hand. A waterproof jacket repels water, resisting the ingress of liquid water. There are many different ladies' waterproof jackets as well as mens waterproof jackets available on the market today. Therefore, it's only natural that you should put a little effort into selecting the right jacket or coat for the purpose. If you're often out jogging or trail running, a lightweight waterproof jacket is of course the best choice. A larger, thickly-lined coat with a waterproof exterior is more suitable for cold days at sea or during wintertime. Similar to a seaman's coat is the waterproof jacket for mountain climbers, fit with with a hood, high neckline and velcro straps on the wrist so that you can tighten the sleeve down to your wrist, ensuring that no water will drip upwards into your sleeve while hiking or climbing.
Waterproof jackets for women and men are an all-around good piece of clothing to have. Not only are they waterproof, but look just like a normal jacket and so can be worn for all purposes and occasions. Surprisingly, there is a lot of technology and research that goes behind every jacket and coat. Most commonly, jackets and coats are waterproofed by applying a polyurethane coating to the material before it is cut and sewn into a wearable form. Then, the waterproof coating is sprayed on the inside of the jacket and on the seams, ensuring that no water is able to leak through at any point. Another method of making the jacket resistant to water is a membrane coating, PTFE, that is laminated onto the material with hot pressing irons.
