WATERPROOF JACKETS

By Kasia Hastings and Sarah Kershaw, 21 April 2017

So a waterproof jacket is a must – preferably a lightweight one you can bundle into your backpack the moment the sun pops out.

Lightweight, woven fabric, an understated design and streetwear credentials mean it’s ideal for the great outdoors, or inner-city living.
