When hiking on alpine routes, it is common to encounter stormy weather. So a jacket that can withstand high water pressure makes a great choice.
When hiking through dense bushes and cliff edges, an abrasion-resist jacket would be a wise option.
Hong Kong summertimes are often stifling and rainy. You will appreciate the light and breathable waterproof jackets. Personally, bringing a 2.5-layer waterproof jacket to a summer hike helps shield against sudden showers. Also, a sudden drop in temperature can be harsh as we get on public transport. Putting on a thin waterproof jacket can avoid catching a cold. The dynamic environment in Hong Kong makes a thin waterproof jacket essential.
The price of a waterproof jacket can range from dozens to thousands. To make a smart purchase, it is crucial to determine which feature is needed.
