Best women’s waterproof jackets

Don’t get caught out in a heavy downpour this season! Stay dry, protected and comfortable - no matter what the weather throws at you. Don’t miss these recommendations for womens waterproof jackets.

‘Tis the season for an April shower! One thing we can always be sure of is unpredictable Great British weather - no matter what the season. But here at Montane we don’t want rain to stop you from having fun in the great outdoors. That’s why investing in a well-made waterproof jacket for women is an absolutely essential piece of kit for anyone eager to get outside and explore comfortably.

Understanding how a waterproof works is important - so here’s a whistle stop tour to get you started! Ultimately waterproof jackets are developed to block out the rain. We know most people are familiar with the terms water repellant (able to resist water to some degree, but not fully) and water resistant (which is harder to penetrate with water). But did you know a good waterproof should also be breathable? This is because you naturally create your own water whilst on the move, known of course as sweat. A breathable waterproof jacket allows this sweat to pass out of the jacket - in turn helping to keep you dry (and comfortable!). You can rest assured that all of our Montane waterproofs are developed with breathable technology in place,  though please be aware that how breathable a jacket is, varies dependant on the style you choose.

With your waterproof jacket knowledge now suitably up to speed, the next step is to help you choose the best women’s waterproof jacket for your specific needs! We have a number of styles to choose from, each of which combines water resistant protection with breathable technology - to keep you dry and smiling whilst out and about! Whether you’re looking for something for everyday use or you’re into walking or running - we’ve a waterproof jacket for you!
