Scrambling Stanage Edge, trail running in Snowdonia, backpacking from London to Benicàssim...the list of potential wet weather adventures goes on and on. Whether you're exploring the UK or heading further afield, preparing for unpredictable weather will ensure you get the most from your trip.
We've chosen our favourite waterproof jackets and destination recommendations for whatever your next adventure may be.
Suitable for outdoor pursuits all year round, the Rab Firewall jacket offers excellent waterproofing, breathability and stretch thanks to 3L Pertex® Shield®+ fabric. Pit zips and a wired peak allow you to customise your fit for maximum comfort and visibility while hiking.
From Dartmoor and the South Downs to the North York Moors and Yorkshire Dales, Britain has an incredible selection of National Parks which offer lower-level walks which still have phenomenal views.
The concrete pillboxes which line the bridleways of Box Hill on the North Downs are a beautiful sight in Surrey. En route, don’t forget to visit Denbies Wine Estate and enjoy a walk through their vineyards.
Layering is the best way to stay warm on the slopes - but only if you do it right. Your mid-layer is the one which actually provides the warmth, so the one you choose can make or break your day in the mountains. Remember, each layering system is unique, and what works for one person may not work for another, so we've created this guide to help you choose the right mid-layer for you.
