Walking garments need to be comfortable, functional and durable. The level of breathability required depends on the intensity you are working at. The most breathable walking jackets use eVent or GoreTexProShell. For extended use in wet climates such as hill walking in theBrecon Beacons or Black Mountains these are ideal. These jackets are normally reinforced in key areas such as the shoulders where carrying a heavy pack can cause wear over long periods of time.
For less frequent use or easier walking such as canal paths or dog walking many of the lighter less expensive jackets will be perfect. These are less breathable and less durable but are very comfortable and are great for general use as they pack down well. All our waterproofs are just that… 100% waterproof!Walking jackets often have smaller hoods than mountaineering jackets as they do not need to accommodate a helmet. Pockets are often high up to work with a waist belt on a backpack. Back lengths are generally slightly longer than those of mountaineering jacks to offer more bum coverage, ideal when sitting on rocks in the wet!
