Wa­ter­proof/ breath­able lin­ings

Most tex­tile jack­ets and trousers at this price point will come with a fixed breath­able mem­brane mean­ing that rain will pen­e­trate the out­er­most layer of the suit but be pre­vented from reach­ing your skin by the mem­brane be­neath. It acts like a one-way valve, keep­ing rain out but let­ting sweat-re­lated mois­ture es­cape.

Ther­mal lin­ing

Most suits will come with a ther­mal in­ner jacket that can be zipped in or out de­pend­ing on the con­di­tions. Some top-spec suits will fea­ture spe­cial tem­per­a­ture-reg­u­lat­ing fab­rics such as Out­last.


A true all-sea­son suit will also fea­ture zipped vents that you can open to let fresh air flow through the gar­ment – ideal for hot con­di­tions. In a good suit th­ese vents will fea­ture wa­ter­proof zips to help pre­vent wa­ter get­ting into them.

Get the right fit

Many man­u­fac­tur­ers will of­fer trousers in a choice of waist sizes and leg lengths, and of­fer com­fort-en­hanc­ing fea­tures such as Vel­cro ad­justers and stretch panels.
