Rainseries: breathable and waterproof
If you want to stay dry outdoors all day long, jackets from the Rainseries range are the ideal choice for you. They are completely waterproof but don't make you sweat. Although the material keeps water out, it is breathable and allows moisture to escape from the inside to the outside. The jackets in the Rainseries range are also reliably windproof. These jackets provide the ideal protection on rainy autumn and spring days or also on cool summer evenings.
Airseries: as light as a feather and moderately warm
The jackets in the Airseries range are typically a very low weight and look casual. An Airseries jacket weighs only about half as much as an ordinary jacket. The cleverly positioned seams of the quilted design ensure that the jacket keeps its shape, and the thin layer of padding inside the quilting will keep you moderately warm. You'll hardly notice that you're wearing it yet will benefit from the comfortable warmth provided by this featherlight jacket. This jacket is not waterproof, so it is the perfect choice for outdoor activities in good weather when it's not too cold. It is a great travel jacket, as it is easy to clean, durable and a very compact size when folded.
GORE-TEX®: thermal and breathable
The microporous GORE-TEX® membrane offers four benefits: the jacket is windproof, waterproof, breathable and allows vapours to escape. The rain can't penetrate, and the moisture resulting from vigorous activities that make you sweat can also
escape. GORE-TEX® can be combined with textiles in a wide range of different ways; accordingly, the choice of functional jackets with this technology is therefore equally wide.
GORE-TEX® has long since become firmly established in the area of outdoor clothing.
Which jacket is perfect for which area of use?
You should always choose the right jacket for the time of the year and the activity you intend to pursue. Functional jackets can only offer optimum protection if they are worn in the right context. This means that a light rain jacket without thermal protection is ideal for summer activities. If these activities are likely to make you sweat, your functional jacket has to be breathable. The jackets in the Rainseries range are a particularly good choice, in this instance.
A slightly padded jacket will keep you a little warmer
A thin, slightly padded functional jacket, on the other hand, is a better idea for a relaxed cycling tour in the autumn and spring when the weather is dry. Jackets from the Airseries range are therefore ideal for a family outing, a picnic on a park bench or an evening stroll through the old city centre with friends on cool late summer evenings.
In the winter, war outerwear is a must
During the cold time of the year, when you spend many hours outdoors in windy, wet and cold conditions and have to be able to rely on a well-insulated jacket that will keep you warm, you should make sure that you make the right choice. Your OUTIQ jacket will keep you comfortably warm when the wind is blowing coldly in your face. To keep your head warm, jackets with an attached hood are perfect, although you can also combine your jacket with suitable accessories such as a hat and a scarf
Conclusion: every jacket performs specific functions
The particular properties of a jacket can be appreciated best if it is worn for the purpose and in the temperature and weather conditions it was designed for. In short: a rain jacket works best in rainy weather, a ski jacket on the piste and a cardigan is the ideal choice for enjoying an apres-ski snack inside a mountain-top hut. If you own a choice of several jackets for various uses, no weather will be able to stop you from participating in all those tempting outdoor activities.
