There are many kinds of jackets available in the market but we have listed only 4 types of jackets. i.e. Fleece, Duck Down, Waterproof, and Leather.
Because if you can have at least 1 jacket from each of the following 4 types of jackets. Then you might not need any other type of jacket for casual, sports and formal needs.
Fleece: These types of jackets are softshell jackets, feel great, and are very comfortable, But dust catchers. So they are best for indoor activities.
Down: These are good for traveling, and mountaineering because they are lightweight and you can compress them in a small bag of size 15cm * 25cm. They don't lose their warmth even after many compression and decompression.
Waterproof: As the name suggests these are padded jackets and they are waterproof but not dust-proof. You can't compress them in a small bag, they take full storage space. So they are mainly used for outdoor activity in rainy weather. You don't need a rain jacket or poncho over these types of jackets.
Leather: Ahh 🙂 The classical! Why we call them classical is because they are dustproof and most the premium leather jackets are both dust-proof and waterproof. And you just need a wet cloth to wipe dirt and dust from your jacket and you are good to go again. So if you can afford to buy a premium leather jacket then you are free from worrying about indoor or outdoor activities.
