The Best Range of Women’s Winter Jackets and Coats for 2022

Last updated on August 24th, 2022 at 01:29 pm

It can be hard to find a jacket that is perfect for you and your needs. That’s why we’ve collated a list of our Best Women’s Jackets for outdoor activities.

We love these jackets and there’s bound to be something in this list that is just what you’re looking for.

“You can do anything with a great jacket…”

Before purchasing one of our top jackets, there are three main questions you’ll want to think about…

1. Is the Jacket Waterproof or Water-Resistant?

Waterproof jackets have a waterproof coating on the outer of the jacket, with fully taped seams – meaning that water cannot enter the jacket, or soak in, therefore keeping you fully dry.

Water Resistant jackets have have a waterproof repellent coating on the outside of the jacket to prevent water being let into the jacket but will not be fully tape seamed, making it only resistant and not proof.

2. Is the Jacket Warm Enough?

Insulation is very important when it comes to how warm your chosen jacket will be. Down insulation is the warmest type of insulation, meaning jackets with down insulation are the better option if youre looking for warmth. However some jackets also use synthetic insulation or a combination of both.

3. Does the Jacket include all of the Features That You Require?

Finally, you’ll need to think about what features the jacket includes. For example – a hood, pockets and where they’re located, zips or buttons? etc. These will all be crucial things to think about when you decide on the perfect jacket.
