Stay dry, whatever the weather
A waterproof jacket is not just a raincoat, just prettier. A quality waterproof jacket protects you from rain and wind, but on top of it, it can breathe. And it can be very light, compact, and durable. You can get all this in the same jacket.
If something is a must of the essential outdoor equipment, it is undoubtedly a good waterproof jacket. It should be your protective shield when you decide to go out facing all-day rain, but in sudden weather changes where there is no possibility of finding a shelter, or you want to keep going. Without a quality waterproof jacket, a stay in the mountains can quickly become a nightmare due to harsh conditions.
Patagonia has combined its long-term manufacturing practice with the reviews and experiences of its ambassadors to develop superior waterproof jackets for various outdoor activities, as their demands on equipment are slightly different.
