How to Choose Vests for Outdoors
A hiking vest is a great piece of womens clothing that keeps the core of your body, warm and protected in cold conditions. While leaving your arms completely free, these vests
are a wonderful choice. A hiking vest provides the functionality and efficiency you need for an outdoor adventure while keeping you dry, warm, and comfortable on the trails.
Vests can be used as a mid layer or an outer layer and suitable for days when you don’t want to wear jackets. Some hiking breathable vests
are designed to allow breathability with additional storage space/pockets for keeping all the essentials you need. Salomon
, and CMP
offer high quality outdoor vests for women.
A good hiking vest should have the following qualities;
• Water repellent
• Packable without wrinkling
• Wind resistant
The fleece vests are ideal for hiking and outdoor activities as they offer all the above mentioned features. While choosing fleece windproof vests,
make sure they are not bulky fit so that you can layer yourself underneath and over it easily. The vest must stand up to heavy usage and abrasion. Waterproof vests
for outdoors are typically designed with waterproof material such as nylon. Fleece vests are usually not waterproof and windproof, owing to their soft and comfortable design, but they are best suited for non extreme outdoor activities.
