Which men's waterproof jacket is best for me?

Choosing the right men's rain jacket for you is ultimately a personal decision, but there are several things to bear in mind as you make it. Not only will your new jacket protect you from the elements but, if it's looked after carefully, it could last you for years to come.

Before you start your search, you could ask yourself the following questions:

  1. 1. What conditions do you need it for? Will you need a waterproof jacket that you'll wear only during a light shower or will it have to withstand all-day driving rain?
  2. 2. How will you use it? Are you planning to wear your new jacket for speedy trail running and steep, intense climbing or are you looking for a comfy all-rounder?
  3. 3. Will you need it to keep you warm? Waterproof jackets are versatile but you'll find that most are designed to be layered. If you need ultimate protection against cold weather, you might need to wear an insulated jacket
  4. 4. How waterproof does it need to be? There's a difference between water-resistant and waterproof men's jackets. Water-resistant garments repel light showers but might not withstand heavy rainfall like a Gore-Tex jacket would.

Once you've decided how you'll use your waterproof jacket and thought about the type of conditions you'll need it to withstand, it's worth knowing about the technical features on offer with different brands too.

What makes a jacket waterproof?

Many of the men's waterproof jackets in our product range have been produced with a special water-repellent treatment. Durable water repellent, or DWR, lowers the surface tension of your garment to help prevent water droplets from 'gripping' to the fabric.

  • You can learn more about making the most of DWR treatment in our guide to caring for waterproofs, which includes instructions on how to re-proof your men's waterproof coats.
  • In our waterproof jackets buying guide, we've explained the functions of some of the most popular features you might expect to find on these jackets.

Our waterproof jackets for men rely on innovative technologies within technical fabrics to help keep you dry through driving rain. A few examples seen across our online collection include:


As our most popular type of waterproof fabric, Gore-Tex technologies feature an outer membrane that's entirely waterproof, windproof and breathable. The Gore-Tex technologies are all guaranteed to keep you dry but you can choose between:

  • Original Gore-Tex, a two-layer fabric ready for adventures
  • Gore-Tex Pro, a triple-layer fabric developed for ultimate durability on rugged terrain
  • Gore-Tex PACLITE®, designed to be lightweight and packable

Gore-Tex is a key feature on many of the men's waterproof jackets in our selection, offered by leading brands including Berghaus, Arc'teryx, Norrona and more.

Pertex Shield

Pertex is another popular provider of waterproof fabric technologies. You'll find its Shield range used in men's waterproof jackets manufactured by renowned brands including Rab, Montane, and The North Face.

Brand-specific Technologies

Many of the brands we recommend to our customers have developed their own waterproof membrane technologies. A few high-tech examples include:

  • The North Face FUTURELIGHT™ offers the highest level of protection against rain across the product range by this brand. It's also incredibly breathable, allowing air to permeate through the material to help you regulate your temperature.
  • The North Face DryVent™ combines sealed seams with DWR-treated recycled fabrics to provide sustainable but uncompromised waterproofing technology. Several men's rain jackets by The North Face feature this technology.
  • Patagonia H₂No™ is a performance standard benchmark unique to the Patagonia clothing range. This technology ensures full water repellence alongside breathability and durability for the user.
  • Berghaus Hydroshell™ is designed to help you feel comfortable instead of clammy. When things start to heat up but it's still raining, this Berghaus technology will keep you dry on the inside and the outside.

Are men's waterproof jackets breathable?

Yes! Many of the waterproof men's jackets we provide in store and online are as breathable as they are water-repellent. This feature is particularly important if you're looking for mountaineering jackets or planning to explore an area where the temperature might change dramatically and unexpectedly.

If you're not sure how to find the most suitable jacket, we can help. Our team of in-store experts know about each of the different technologies used in our waterproof coats for men, including which ones might provide the most breathability.

Is a Gore-Tex men's jacket worth buying?

Choosing the best waterproof jackets possible could be seen as an investment. Being prepared to spend a little bit more on your gear means that you'll benefit from world-class technologies proven to withstand the most extreme conditions and environments in the world.

Other world-class waterproofing technologies are available and, when you get in touch with the Tiso team or visit us in store, we'll be happy to share our knowledge and help you choose. If you're looking for a reliable waterproof to take with you on everyday rainy adventures, though, it's certainly worth buying a Gore-Tex men's lightweight waterproof jacket.

Are all Arc'teryx jackets waterproof?

High-end Arc'teryx jackets make a popular choice for amateur and experienced explorers alike. The models we've featured in our selection of waterproof jackets for men include an outer Gore-Tex shell, so it's guaranteed that they'll be incredibly versatile and waterproof too.

If you've got your heart set on buying a new Arc'teryx jacket but are not sure whether to choose an insulated or shell model, don't hesitate to ask the Tiso team for some advice.

Can you wash waterproof jackets?

Knowing how to clean a waterproof jacket could prove invaluable if you're eager to make your gear last as long as possible. However, the technologies and cutting-edge fabrics used in waterproof gear mean that you might not be able to wash them alongside other outdoor gear.

Looking after your waterproof jacket is certainly a task worth putting time and effort into. We've written a detailed guide to caring for your waterproof gear to help you get started. You should always remember to check the label and find out the recommended care instructions by the manufacturer too.
