How we test waterproof jackets

You can tell if a jacket looks good in the shop, but there’s no way of knowing how strong the fabric is or whether it will keep you dry.

Our team of expert walkers cover over 2,800 miles to ensure that you don’t waste your money on a jacket that’s not up to scratch. And in the lab, our experts assess the strength, water resistance and breathability of the fabric.

  • Our Best Buys will keep you dry even in a prolonged downpour, while a bad jacket will start to let in water around the seams, zips and pockets.
  • A great waterproof jacket allows vapour to pass through the fabric, whereas the condensation inside a bad jacket can make you feel cold and clammy.
