FAQs

Do Waterproof Jackets Keep You Warm?

Waterproof jackets won't necessarily keep you warm. It ultimately depends on the design of the coat. A jacket that's only designed to be waterproof isn't likely to have any insulation to keep you warm. Its job is to keep you dry. If you’re looking for a warm, waterproof jacket, also look for one that’s insulated and wind-proof – this will provide extra protection against the chill.

Are Puffer Jackets Good for Hiking?

A puffer jacket isn't an ideal choice for hiking due to its bulkiness and lack of breathability. While some puffer or padded jackets have been designed to be warm yet breathable, not all of them have. You should always purchase a puffer jacket for hiking from a reputable outdoor retailer or opt for a lightweight jacket with water-resistant fabric instead.

How Waterproof Should a Camping Jacket Be?

A camping jacket should be waterproof to at least 10,000mm of water pressure, as this level is considered suitable for light rain use. Higher ratings, such as 15,000 to 20,000mm, are more suited for extreme weather conditions like heavy or prolonged rain. Check the product description before buying a jacket to know its waterproof rating.

Is Synthetic Insulation as Warm as Natural Insulation?

Synthetic insulation is generally not as warm as natural insulation, but it depends on the quality. Synthetic insulation provides a good balance between warmth and weight, but it does not replicate the warmth of natural options such as down or wool. Natural insulation is known for its superior breathability and warmth-retention properties, which synthetic materials cannot replicate.
