    When looking for a jacket that’s going to keep you dry, be sure to read the label and understand it correctly. There are basically three levels of protection. A water-resistant jacket may keep you dry in a light shower, briefly. These jackets are usually very light layers and are often for athletic wear. A water repellent jacket has been treated with a surface coating that will keep you dry through most wet weather. A waterproof jacket has a laminate-type outer (think oilskins and waxed jackets) and a breathable waterproof membrane. These will give you the best protection from heavy precipitation. If you need snow protection rather than rain, there are some choice waterproofs with a variety of insulation levels.
