How to Choose a Technical Shell

Guide

Waterproof Rating

Plan for the worst when you're looking for jacket that you'll wear into the mountains. You want a jacket with fabric that boasts a high waterproof rating (20K+) and a highly breathable membrane, ample durability, and a construction that includes fully taped or welded seams.
