Womens Hiking Jacket Of The Month

Women Hiking: Back in the 1970's, women's hiking jackets were practical and fashionable, perfect for strolling through the woods or climbing Glacier Point in Yosemite National Park. These jackets were long and fitted, beaded at the waist and very smart looking. In a few years, this type of jacket was out of fashion, but the design has since become popular again. LS&Co is the brand behind this type of jacket, and it is now available in a wide variety of styles.

arcteryx trench coat: While mountaineers are attracted to the boxier silhouette of Arc'teryx apparel, urban dwellers will appreciate its streamlined architectural designs and breathable GORE-TEX fabric. Both materials are capable of providing full environmental shelter, regulating temperature and elevating comfort levels inside the garment. In addition to being waterproof, the Nila trench coat features a reflective surface under the collar to improve safety.

Directly comparing the Zeta with its Gore Paclite Plus fabric to air-permeable models isn't as cut and dry as it sounds. Air-permeable models have a lower but more static level of breathability. In contrast, this model, as well as other models that feature any variety of Gore-Tex, can have higher and lower levels of breathability depending on the level of activity of the user and environmental factors (like the temperature outside). This level fluctuates more depending on how much internal heat build-up there is relative to the air temperature and to a lesser extent relative humidity (which for most people means generally higher when you are wearing a rain jacket). When we were working hard (such as hiking), both Gore Paclite Plus and Gore Active breathe better than any model featuring an air-permeable fabric, such as the Outdoor Research Microgravity and the Rab Kinetic Plus (the two best). However, these models performed better if it was exceptionally hot and humid out, or once we had cooled off (say, while setting up camp).

Our testers loved the feel of the internal fabric of the Zeta even more so than the REI XeroDry, which is also constructed with Gore-tex Paclite Plus. It was a significantly less clammy and sticky feeling than the majority of competitors and felt great directly against our skin, and feels nice even when we only had a t-shirt on under it.
