Best Men’s Waterproof Jackets

Stay dry, protected and comfortable on the move - no matter what the weather throws at you this season. Take a look at our top waterproof jackets for men. 

Let’s face it, no matter what the season, a heavy downpour is a common feature of the Great British weather. But here at Montane we don’t believe a bit of rain should ever stop you from getting out and enjoying the great outdoors. That’s why investing in a technical, durable waterproof jacket for men is an absolutely essential piece of kit for anyone eager to explore the UK’s incredible natural spaces. 

First things first, waterproof jackets are developed to help block out the rain. Most people are familiar with the terms water repellant (able to resist water to some degree, but not fully) and water resistant (much harder to penetrate with water).  A good waterproof should also come with a breathable membrane. This is because whilst on the move, you generate your own water, in the form of sweat. A breathable jacket allows the sweat you generate to pass out of the jacket - helping to keep you dry! Rest assured, no matter what the style, all Montane waterproofs are engineered with this breathable technology, though how breathable this is varies jacket-to-jacket. 

So where do you begin? Dependant on what you’re eager to get up to, there’s a men's waterproof jacket best suited for you! We have several options to choose from, each combining water resistant protection with highly breathable fabrics - alongside an array of handy features that will help you maximise your chosen activity. Whether you love to walk, run or are simply looking for a waterproof jacket for every-day use - all of our jackets featured below offer serious waterproof protection, when you need it most!
