How we rate waterproof jackets

In May 2015, members of the online Which? Connect panel took part in a survey about their waterproof jacket. We collected more than 2,300 responses. We asked them to rate their waterproof jacket on aspects such as water resistance, comfort, durability and fit. We need a minimum sample size of 30 to report on a waterproof jacket brand, and our research has allowed us to report on 16 different waterproof jacket brands.
