What makes our jackets waterproof?

Every stitch and fibre uses the latest technology to give you the best performance and comfort. Regatta isotex fabric is measured by its ability to withstand a certain amount of downward pressure of water in millimetres. The number it is given relates to its test results and how much water it can withstand (mm). All our jackets are waterproof and the higher the isotex number the more water the jacket can withstand.

Packaways Jackets

As the name suggests packaways are lightweight waterproof jackets designed to be packed down into a pocket or a small bag, so you are always ready for the rain. Perfect for carrying with you at all times, our packaway jackets for men and women are ideal for low level walking, travelling and festivals.

All Regatta packaway jackets are breathable, which means they move moisture away from your skin so you shouldn’t get too hot when wearing one. They are designed with a full front fastening, a hood and elasticated cuffs to stop the water from getting in. For the more adventurous walker some styles have more technical features than others, including taped seams.

3-in-1 Jackets

Layer one is made of fleece or softshell to provide insulation and comfort. When worn alone this layer will keep you warm on a cold day.
