6 eVent Waterproof Jackets for Your Favorite SportPin

Partaking in outdoor activities is always fun and for some people it’s a way of getting the most out of life. Those who love being out in nature and going on outdoor adventures know too well that what you are wearing will make or break the experience.

Jackets are a must for any sportswoman or sportsman, despite the season, but especially so during autumn and winter, when temperatures drop and the weather gets a little unpredictable. The best way to stay protected under those conditions is having a waterproof jacket, but not just any waterproof jacket. A breathable one is a must.

This brings us to eVent jackets, which are waterproof, windproof and highly breathable, due to DirectVenting™.

eVent is a fabric technology, which is made of ePTFE as the main material, which then is bonded to other fabrics in order to create a multitude of options for different purpose. These fabrics are not just used for jackets, but other outdoor clothing and shoes as well.

We recently took a look at how eVent fabrics compare to the staple of quality waterproof fabric technology, Gore-Tex, which we have frequently included in our selections, reviews and comparisons.

We recommend you check that out to get a more in-depth understanding of how eVent works and why it is considered to be the closest alternative to Gore-Tex, while some would even argue that it is the better of the two in terms of breathability.

But what you are here for is the jackets we have picked, so let’s get right into it.
