Waterproof Clothing Guide

Waterproof clothing is essential if you enjoy the great outdoors. Even in the height of summer, there's always a chance of rain. In order to make the best of your time outside, you'll want to make sure that you've got good quality waterproof clothing with you at all times. Here's what to look for when you're buying waterproof clothing. 1. What for You'll need to establish what you want it for. You'll have different requirements if you going for a walk in the countryside compared to if you're going fishing to shooting. 2. Town and country You might want to be able to wear your new waterproof clothing in the High street as well as when you're hunting. You'll want to choose something that will fit in with your jeans as well as your breeks. 3. Brands Here at John Norris we have all the leading country clothing brands, and so you will have lots of different waterproof clothing to choose from. With Barbour, Dubarry, Seeland, Musto, Schoffel, Le Chameau, Harkila and many more in stock, there's bound to be just what you're looking for. 4. Winter and summer In the winter you'll want waterproof clothing that will also keep you warm, whilst in the summer you'll want something that will help you to stay cool. You might be able to find what you need in one jacket or pair of trousers, or perhaps you'll need different waterproof clothing for different times of the year. 5. Colours If you're going to be wearing your waterproof clothing for fishing and shooting, then you won't want it to be too bright and colourful, so that you don't startle your targets. 6. Fit You'll want your waterproof clothing to fit well and be comfortable so that you can concentrate on what you're doing, instead of your jacket and trousers. You might also be looking for big pockets, or zips that are easy to use when you've got your gloves on. 7. Jacket and trousers You might want to get a good quality warm waterproof jacket and trousers for the winter, and know that you'll stay warm and dry, and that you won't have to remember any additional clothing when you go fishing, or for your walk. 8. Lightweight If you're looking for a different option, then perhaps a lightweight jacket and waterproof overtrousers will be more appropriate for you. You won't want to have to wear or carry a heavy warm jacket with you in the summer. 9. Accessories Remember that you'll also benefit from hats and gloves when it's cold and wet too, especially in the winter. Why not browse our clothing accessories, and see what else you need? 10. Value for money Choosing the cheapest option isn’t necessarily going to give you value for money, because if your waterproof clothing isn’t up to the job, isn’t comfortable or doesn’t last, then you won't wear it, and will have to buy something more suitable. It makes sense to buy what you need first time. If you're not sure what you need, or want additional advice, why not call us on 01768 864211 today?
