What is a Waterproof Jacket Made From?

Waterproof jackets have an outer waterproof protective layer that forms a barrier against water and moisture caused by wet weather. This outer layer can be made from a range of different materials including polyester, Elastane and PVC. These materials offer different levels of breathability. An outer breathable layer contains a thin layer of microscopic pores that can let moisture out but are small enough to stop rain coming in. Breathable coatings provide more moisture control than a coated jacket. Some waterproof jackets feature a fleece lining or are padded so not only do they keep you dry, they keep you warm too! Waterproof jackets are available with hoods some of which are designed to fold away neatly into your collar. Handy pockets are also included where you can keep your essential accessories including mobile phones.

What is the Difference Between Waterproof and Water Resistant?

A waterproof jacket has certain features in its construction that a water-resistant jacket does not:

  • A DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish on the outside which can be a waterproof breathable membrane, laminate or other waterproof technology
  • Sealed seams which are either critically sealed (upper body only) or fully seam sealed (all seams are sealed)
  • Taped seams: these are seams that are sealed with a waterproof tape
  • Welded Seams: these are seams that are bonded together with glue rather than stitched

What are the Waterproof Ratings for a Jacket?

The waterproof ratings of a jacket are given in accordance with how well the fabric performed in a waterproof test called the 'Static Column' Test. In this test, a 1-inch diameter tube is placed on top of the fabric and filled slowly with water. When the first signs of leakage occur the height of the water in the tube is recorded. This height is the waterproof rating. For instance a jacket with a waterproof rating of 5000mm will start to let in water a lot earlier than a jacket with a 20000mm rating!
