Types of Raingear

They’re hundreds of different rain gear options. Today I will be telling you about a few of them!

The first option to choose is Waterproof/ breathable. This stops the water from getting through to your skin. If you want to do and lung and limb pumping activities then this is the right gear to use!

Next, you have the water-resistant. This is also breathable. It can handle light rain for a short amount of time. However, it can not handle precipitation lingers and rain that comes down sideways!

Third we have waterproof/ non breathable. An example of this is a rain slicker or even an emergency poncho. This keeps the rain out only when you are sitting or standing still. Although, if you exertion then you will sweat that will cause the inside of your jacket to be slick on the inside so then it will no longer be usable. The one really good thing about this is that it is very cheap! One other bad thing about it is that it doesn’t take that much wind to make a poncho largely ineffective.

The fourth thing is windproof. Any waterproof jacket is also windproof. You will find with windproof technology, usually some type of laminate, are considered water resistant!
