If you’re out and about in inclement weather, then you need to invest in a quality hardshell jacket. While softshells are designed to protect you suitably from wind, they rarely are waterproof. Hardshell jackets are waterproof, windproof, and well-insulated to keep you warm. Frequently they have lots of pockets of all sorts of shapes and sizes.
