We can’t control the weather in Britain, but we can be prepared for it. A versatile clothing system that is flexible and can be adjusted is crucial to stay comfortable and protected from the elements. This is why the 3-in-1 Jacket is so beneficial for many.
These coats can be used in all seasons, and you can choose from three different jacket options depending on the weather. A 3-in-1 jacket will make you ready for any outdoor adventure or climate.
What is a 3-in-1 JACKET?
The 3-in-1 Jacket is also called an ‘interactive’ (or ‘IA) jacket. It consists of a waterproof outer and an inner fleece that can be detached. This Jacket is ideal for all-year use. This Jacket is perfect for dealing with changing weather conditions head-on.
Layering up during winter is essential. Layers of air trap air close to your skin, which helps you stay warm.
Although they seem more expensive initially, 3-in-1 waterproof coats are an excellent investment because they can be worn throughout the year.
These jackets provide exceptional comfort in winter conditions. However, you can still unzip the layers to use them for outdoor activities.
Use the waterproof outer layer.
A 3-in-1 Jacket’s outer layer should be made of waterproof, breathable synthetic materials. This is your first line of defense against the elements. It would help if you also treated it with a water-repellent finish. This allows water to run off the surface.
When you need to provide temporary protection from the elements, you can wear the outer layer on its own in warm or cold weather.
There are many ways to waterproof your Jacket, but the most common is to add a waterproof membrane or coating. Membranes are stronger and more breathable than coatings, often providing superior protection.
Although coatings are less expensive initially, they may lose their waterproof properties quicker.
Use the inner layer to insulate
Your 3-in-1 Jacket is your inner Jacket. It acts as an insulating layer. It is made from a warm material like fleece or synthetic polyester filling. You can wear this layer alone if you need extra warmth.
The inner layer of a 3-in-1 jacket will usually be a fleece. However, softshell jackets can be used as a middle layer. These jackets offer more versatility and versatility than fleece but are lighter and warmer.
A 3-in-1 jacket will provide all the protection you need from the elements. For maximum security, the fleece can be worn with the outer layer if the weather is more severe than usual.
The outer shell and inner layer are often zipped together. However, they can sometimes be attached with buttons or hooks.
As you would expect, waterproof protection is the main feature of a 3-in-1 Jacket. You can achieve this by using a waterproof membrane or coating.
Zips and pockets
You can store your belongings in multiple pockets, both internal and exterior. Waterproof zips can also be used to prevent water from getting into pockets.
Taped seams are required for a jacket that is 100% waterproof. Taped seams are heat-sealed seams that stop water from getting through the stitching. If you are exposed to prolonged, heavy rains, you should choose a jacket that has taped seams.
Cuffs that can be adjusted
Adjustable cuffs ensure a snug fit around your wrists to keep the rain out. An elastic hem can be added to 3-in-1 jackets to prevent rain and wind entering your Jacket.
