When should you wear a rain poncho?
Determining how you intend to use your waterproof will help you to choose the right jacket. Depending on what activity you’re doing, you’ll need a jacket that is more or less waterproof so that you can enjoy your activity in all weathers with peace of mind. A waterproof is the perfect addition to your autumn wardrobe if you do any of the following activities.
- Which waterproof do you need for hiking? If you’re hiking in the forest or in the great outdoors, the unpredictable weather of certain seasons can quickly catch you out. There can be heavy showers, but you can protect yourself with a lightweight waterproof jacket. A jacket with a short, fitted cut will give you freedom of movement so that you can enjoy your hikes whatever the weather. While it's a good idea to keep an eye on the weather when planning your routes for safety reasons, the rain will no longer be an issue, and you can enjoy your passion to the full.
- Choosing a waterproof jacket for cycling: Like all outdoor activities, your cycling routes are inevitably subject to weather conditions. Whether you're taking it easy on country roads or training on steeper paths, it's important that you can focus on your performance and enjoying your activity at all times. Depending on your preferences, you can opt for a short model, taking care to add a thigh protector so you don't get wet during your exercise. For all-round protection, rain capes or ponchos can provide effective insulation from the rain during your rides and races, without impeding the movement of your legs when pedalling.
- How to choose a waterproof for sailing?Bad weather on a boat usually means rough seas. If your outfit is to keep you dry in spite of the rain, it must also be sufficiently waterproof to ward off splashing waves when you're on deck. Yellow foulies have been developed over the years and now come in a range of sizes and colours to suit everyone's taste. You can also opt for a more fitted, technical jacket that performs just as well, from the wide range of waterproofs in our catalogue dedicated to sailing.
- Find a waterproof for your running sessions: Ideal for improving your cardiovascular performance and strengthening your leg muscles, running requires very little equipment and can be done in a variety of environments: comfortable sportswear and a suitable pair of trainers. Nevertheless, when the weather is wet, you need to be able to run without the risk of coming back from your running session soaking wet. At the end of the good weather, buying a waterproof is essential if you want to keep up your training rhythm and work out without compromising on comfort.
Whether you're running, hunting, sailing, hiking or cycling, you need to practice your activity regularly to improve. By knowing how to choose a waterproof that's compatible with your sport, you can keep up your efforts throughout the year to simply improve your performance and endurance.
