A hardshell jacket is designed to be waterproof (as opposed to just water-resistant) and windproof. It’s generally worn as the outermost layer when layering clothes for hiking, skiing, or other outdoor sports. The wrong hardshell jacket can leave you wet, cold, and uncomfortable. They’re generally made of synthetic fabrics like PVC or a breathable fabric like GORE-TEX. Hardshells include a hood that can sometimes be removed. It’s important that a hardshell jacket be comfortable yet provide good protection against cold weather. Another consideration is the color, since hardshells can range from conservative styles to more outlandish hues.
