History of the Rain Jacket
It’s no secret that the ultimate goal when it is wet outside is to find any way to stay warm and dry. Different cultures used different strategies to achieve this: the Inuit people used long body coats made of sealskin, South Americans used rubber, while the ancient Chinese used vegetable oils. Although these tactics proved to be functional in a sense, the materials led to an array of issues ranging from heaviness, stiffness, and awkward fitting of the clothing.
It was not until the 1800’s in Scotland the idea of a waxy oil, paraffin, was incorporated into the design of the waterproof jacket, also known as the raincoat. Using this material prevented water from going through the surface of these jackets, instead, it rolled off without damaging the jackets. Thus, beginning the original framework for the durable, waterproof, and comfortable raincoat jacket.
Once 1969 arrived, designers began using a material called Gore-Tex, one of the most commonly found materials in modern-day raincoats. Gore-Tex is a manmade fabric which excels in breathability, water resistance, durability, and it is lightweight as well.
Raincoat Jacket Features
The raincoat is known for its many convenient and diverse features which aids in the overall functionality of it. In addition to having a variety of colours and designs, the raincoat focuses on hood design, seams and laminated zippers, lightness of the jacket, and wrist closures.
Often overlooked, the hood design plays an important role in the functionality of the raincoat. Hood designs can vary from jacket to jacket depending on the intended use of the jacket. Usually, for alethic purposes, the hood can be detachable or have drawstrings to ensure that the wearer will not face any annoyances while doing their activities. However, for a more practical and daily use, the hood will be similar to a regular jacket hood.
Seams and Laminated Zippers
Most modern raincoats feature taped seams and laminated zippers. These combined decreases any chance of moisture slipping into the jacket and increases the chances of the wearer staying dry and warm – no matter how intense that rain happens to be. These two features can also improve the longevity of the jacket itself. The taped seams will help the durability of the jacket overall while the laminated zipper will prevent rusting or water slipping in through the small cracks of the zipper.
Lightness of the Jacket
Although the jacket is made to be durable and have adequate protection against the elements – most raincoat jackets are made to be lightweight, so the wearer does not feel super weighed against the rain. This also adds extra comfort for the wearer as well.
Cuff design is another important feature that goes into the creation of raincoat jackets. Many raincoats are beginning to come with additional draw cords for the cuffs. The purpose of these is to eliminate the likely hood of moisture or wind getting into the jacket or increase air ventilation if the wearer is overheating.
How to Select the Right Raincoat Jacket
After deciding if the raincoat has all the desired features to fit your preference, it is crucial to select the correct size and fit of your jacket. You can refer to the Marbek sizing guide for advice on how to properly measure your shoulder width, back length, sleeve length, waist circumference, and chest circumference and select the correct size that would best fit and flatter your body.
It is vital to take accurate measurements and refer to the sizing guide if any questions or uncertainties arise. As a rule of thumb, the measuring tape should fit snugly, yet comfortably are the area of measurement.
Overall Raincoat Jacket Fit
It is vital that your raincoat allows for additional layering to be worn while wearing the raincoat itself. Before wearing a raincoat, it is recommended to test the ease of the zipper and how the zipped jacket fits around your body. Next, the wearer should be able to move and stretch with ease while having the jacket zipped fully up. If both tests are completed and correct, then the wearer can be assured that thy have found the correct jacket that will give them the proper amount of durability mixed with comfort.
Most tips on making sure the wearer has the correct fitting jacket relies on the comfortability when moving the arms/sleeves. It is recommended to zip your jacket up fully and stretch your arms directly in front of you. If the sleeves are too long, then they will go past your wrists, and if they are too short, then the sleeves will end before your wrist begins. Having the proper length sleeves will eliminate the possibility of chaffing and avoid any physical restrictions arising.
Materials Used in Raincoat Jackets
Previously mentioned, raincoats mainly use high-quality cotton, nylon, polyester, and Gore-Tex to aid in the prevention of moisture leaking through the jacket and increasing the longevity and durability of the jacket as well.
