Being kitted out with the right clothing is essential if you're a keen walker, and having a walking coat that's lightweight, waterproof and durable is a must.
You’ll want a walking coat that will see you through many hikes to come. And if you're looking for a little inspiration, it seems there's one coat, in particular, that's caught the eye of Amazon shoppers this week.
The Trespass Women's Qikpac waterproof jacket is a bestseller for the retailer, with hundreds of five-star reviews from happy shoppers.
It's available in four colors, black, green, navy and red, and the rain jacket claims to be waterproof, windproof and breathable. It's set to see you through all weather conditions and acitivies, whether you're walking the dog or going on a Nordic walking adventure.
With over 1,000 global reviews, it's a clear favorite with shoppers who took to the review section to share their thoughts on the coat.
“This is lightweight and dries fast, but withstands the heaviest of downpours with no leaks. The hood is a nice size, not too big that you can’t see but covers the head fully. A nice fit and comfy,” one reviewer wrote.
Another shopper added, “Needed a fully waterproof and lightweight mac for hiking and this is ideal.”
The Trespass jacket is made from Polyamide PU coating with polyester mesh. It's waterproof to 5000mm with a breathability rating of 5000 mvp. The internal flaps promise to prevent cold air from getting into the jacket, keeping you warm and dry as you walk. The adjustable hood, elasticated cuffs and drawcord at the hem have been added for ultimate comfort.
While most shoppers thought it fitted well, some recommend sizing up if you're planning to wear lots of layers underneath.
Now all that's left to do is lace up your walking shoes, join a walking club (or create your own), and get outside to enjoy all the benefits walking has to offer.
