The DWR (Durable Water Repellent) finish has become almost ubiquitous in the outdoor industry, and the satisfying water beading it provides has become the hallmark of a beautiful jacket. It is not strictly waterproof but will provide protection on it’s own against a light shower; however it does wear off so needs to be topped up from time to time. The DWR stops water from soaking into the outer layer of waterproof fabrics like Gore-Tex meaning they remain breathable and light in even in heavy rain.
This jacket can be packed packed down and stored in one of its pockets, so you can easily store it in your pack or clip it to your rack. This saves loads of space and makes jackets with this feature the ideal just-in-case items for climbing, ski touring and mountaineering.
