12 Best Hiking Jackets For Walking

Hikers say that there’s no bad weather its just you are wearing the wrong clothes!  Well living in Scotland i am not quite sure I agree as boy oh boy does it rain here!   However I do agree that when you are going on a walk, hike or climb you have to be wearing the right clothes.

Since the British weather changes at a moment’s notice (and sometimes, even without it!), being protected against wind, rain, and storms is important.  Getting wet & cold miles from home it can lead to hyperthermia and worse!

To keep us warm and waterproof on our hikes my husband trusts his Marmot waterproof hiking jacket, while I’m loyal to Rab Women’s waterproof jacket

When it comes to keeping our little ones happy on walks my vote goes to the Jack Wolfskin Unisex jacket for kids.  All of these Hiking Jackets are reviewed in our best hiking jackets article below.
