How to choose the right winter jacket with Hi-Tec

Hi-Tec jackets


Nothing beats a great puffer jacket, and in the dead of winter, they are everywhere. But due to the overwhelming variety, finding the right one can be difficult. Usually, you are faced with 2 options: down vs. synthetic (both with their pros and cons). The most important thing to consider is your surroundings and winter weather conditions. Brands, like Hi-Tec, have also started introducing something for the eco smart shopper. The synthetic fill is recycled performance fibre made from ocean-bound plastic bottles; like the Hi-Tec Lady Flen II (R1299, also available in a darker subdued colour, Anthracite Periscope Microchip) and Hi-Tec Lady Neva II (R999, available in Mesa Rose and Black). Their new puffer ranges welcome winter with a snug and comfy fit, never compromising on style, warmth, and comfort.

The Outer Shell Faced with a variety of materials; your focus (again) should be on the elements you face during winter. If you need to keep dry and retain heat, opt in for a waterproof (or water-repellent) jacket. Look out for technologies that provide a garment with these capabilities, such as Hi-Tec Tecproof, which is a waterproof (or repellent) coating on the fabric. Such as the new Hi-Tec Lady Nimba Softshell Coat (R1299, in Black) with a fleece inner and shell that’s water repellent enough to protect you from a light downpour. The Nimba coat has a beautiful shape and comfy fit. Wear it as a classic minimalistic look.

The 3-in-1

The best thing about all 3-in-1 jackets is that you get three jackets for the price of one. It is one jacket for all the elements, to wear three ways: as a single fleece, an outer rain shell or as a warmer winter jacket with both fleece inner and waterproof outer. The Hi-Tec Lady APEX 3-in-1 (R1999, Windsor Wine Microchip) not only has a great shape, fit and colour but includes loads of other technical functionalities that are so important to protect you against weather elements. It is the perfect investment in your wardrobe; get that hiking chic look that protects you against bone-chilling winds and downpour. A true unmatched value for your money.
