K-Way Jackets

K-Way Jackets – How To Choose Your Style

In today’s climate, dealing with surprise showers is a year-round issue. As a result, choosing a great piece of outerwear is absolutely vital when it comes to protecting yourself from the elements. If you want the lo-down on how to choose the best jacket for year-round wear then look no further than this handy guide…


 Waterproof Jackets

Picking The Best Jacket For YouK-Way x Comme Des Garcons Jacket

Waterproof jackets are a hot commodity in today’s world. Following the recent gorp-core movement there has been an overwhelming influx of new styles arriving on online stores and retailers across the globe, so it can be a bit tricky narrowing down the right jacket for your day-to-day life. The easiest way to guarantee you’re making the best choice is to look out for the following three key features:

1. Is it actually waterproof? – Does the jacket you’re potentially going to buy arrive with a nylon or polyester construction, with taped seams and a variety of adjustable features to keep you dry.

2. How warm do you need it to be? – It’s all well and good grabbing a new jacket, but if rain is the only element it protects you from then its still not going to be ideal for everyday wear. Think about the weight and warmth it needs to be, and consider whether you may opt to layer other garments underneath, such as a hoodie or gilet.

3. Is it versatile? – Ideally you want a jacket with the ability to adapt as you traverse different surroundings and environments. Bonus points for adjustable draw-cords, handy pockets, pack-ability and more.


 KWAY Jackets

Looking To The Brand That Does It Best

K-Way Jackets

Back in 1965, a man named Leon Claude Duhamel observed the streets of Paris as passers-by struggled to cope with wind and rain under their raincoats and umbrella’s. Even worse though, was the conundrum of what to do with the wet coat or umbrella once the weather had dried up.

His solution? A lightweight waterproof jacket that folds into itself for easy carry. The result? K-Way.

Problem solved right? Just head over to our K-Way category and just grab any jacket you like a look of… Well, not quite. While you cant go wrong with any K-Way piece, you really want to narrow down to the exact type of jacket that will cover all bases in your everyday life. K-Way produce three main styles, the Le-Vrai, Le-Vrai Warm and Le-Vrai Heavy. Lets have a look t all three and find the perfect style for your lifestyle.


  K-Way Le Vrai 3.0 Claude Jacket

The Light One…

KWay Le vrai Light Jacket

The original style, this jacket is ultra-lightweight with a durable nylon construction. It is unlined and features taped seams, an elasticated cuff and adjustable hood and hemline. Two zipped pockets make an appearance on the garments body to offer on the go storage. Storage too, for the jacket as it packs into its own bag on the left-hand side.


 K-Way Le Vrai 3.0 Claude Warm Jacket

The Mid-weight One…KWay Le Vrai Warm Jacket

Still fairly lightweight in comparison to most jackets, but what it lacks in weight it certainly delivers in warmth thanks to its padded down fill. This jacket is ideal for those who prefer a warmer outerwear piece, with the ability to layer underneath it in the colder Winter seasons. Like the two other jackets in this list, it packs into itself for easy transport.


 K-Way Le Vrai 3.0 Claude Heavy Jacket

The Big One…

KWay Le Vrai Heavy Jacket

This is the jacket that you look to when you want to be toasty. All of the time. And it’s still made using waterproof materials and boasts a voluminous down fill. Now you might be thinking that this style mightn’t be able to pack into itself given its size, but you’d be wrong. Granted, it packs up a little larger than most but that’s to be expected, plus for the travellers out there, its packed size is about the shape of a camping pillow so its a two-for-one. Win-win.


 Choosing The Perfect Outerwear Piece

Look To A K-Way Jacket

In the end, the choice of the perfect jacket or coat comes down to your individual needs and preferences. Whether you prioritize lightweight portability, added warmth, or all-encompassing comfort, K-Way has an option for you. So, next time you’re bracing for unexpected showers or chilly temperatures, you can do so with confidence, armed with the knowledge of how to choose the best jacket for year-round wear and a brand that excels in delivering reliable and stylish outerwear options. Stay dry, stay warm, and stay stylish with K-Way at Aphrodite.

Rains Waterproof Jacket

What’s the difference between Water Resistant and Waterproof?

When buying a jacket, or any new garment for that matter, a couple of terms that tend to get thrown around are ‘waterproof’ and ‘water resistant’. But what does this even mean, and what materials possess these properties? Get in the know, below…


What is the difference between Waterproof and Water-Resistant?

Waterproof v Water Resistant

Water Resistant means that the material can resist the permeation of water but only to a certain degree, after a certain point water will permeate the material and it will feel wet. Waterproof means that the material is impermeable and not susceptible to getting wet, waterproof materials offer the best elemental protection.

How do I know if my Jacket is Waterproof?

Typically if a garment is waterproof, then the designer will scream about it till kingdom come. I mean, in all fairness, its is a pretty big deal, and they deserve bragging rights for effectively combatting the dreaded downpours that arrive with British weather. But if somehow “I am Waterproof” isn’t plastered all over the piece you own, or are interested in buying, then here are some telltale signs that what you’re looking at really is waterproof.

Canada Goose Water Resistant Jacket


1. Gore-Tex 

Is Gore-Tex Waterproof?

Not to be confused with Gore-Tex Infinium, a Gore-Tex label (like the one seen below) is a sign of advanced weather protection. Products made with Gore-Tex are impermeable to water, meaning that they are waterproof, however sweat vapor can permeate the material allowing for advanced breathability. In short, sweat vapor gets out and water, or rain, can’t get in. Its a pretty great technology and is used in the most premium pieces of outdoor clothing, it does also come with a pretty premium price tag, but rightly so!

Gore-Tex Logo


2. Wax Coating

Are Barbour Wax Jackets Waterproof?

 

Probably the oldest from of waterproofing on this list, Wax Coating is typically done to cotton jackets and accessories. Made famous in the current fashion climate by Barbour and their iconic wax jackets, this waterproofing process is celebrated thanks to its ability to easily re-wax / re-proof making it the most sustainable choice on this list. The process is exactly what you’d imagine it to be, you take a piece of clothing, such as a jacket, and apply some proofing-wax, rub it evenly over the garment and then set it out to dry. And voila, you’re done. By the way, we really do recommend checking out Barbour’s wax jackets, they are truly the top choice for a timeless waterproof jacket.

3. Polyurethane Coating

Are Rains Jackets Waterproof?

Probably the most unheard of proofing process on this list, a polyurethane coating can be applied to garments in order to make them watertight. The contemporary minimalists over at Scandi brand Rains are the perfect example of this process.

Rains jackets are fully waterproof thanks to their polyester material which is then covered with a waterproof polyurethane coating. A synthetic resin, polyurethane is a great way that brands use to proof jackets on a budget, reducing the final costs for the consumer. This means that this is the most affordable process on this list, check out Rains Jackets for a few examples.

Belstaff-Trial-Master-Jacket

Belstaff Trialmaster – A closer look

The clothing brand Belstaff was founded in 1924 by Eli Belovitch and Harry Grosberg in Staffordshire and was named Belstaff as a combination of Eli’s surname and for Staffordshire where the clothing company first began. Belstaff went on to become a brand synonymous with quality, making some of the most hard-wearing and reliable jackets and garments you could buy on the market both then and indeed now. One such jacket being their definitive Trialmaster Jacket.  

Belstaff-Trial-Master-Jacket

The Trialmaster was designed in 1948 and was made to be able to deal with the harsh conditions of the Scottish 6 Day Trial, the oldest internationally recognised motorcycle trials compotation in the world. As the event took place in notoriously rainy Scotland and seeing as wind and cold temperatures would be unavoidable due to riding motorcycles out in the open, the Trialmaster had to be able to shrug off the elements.  

Belstaff’s Trialmaster Jacket is therefore made from a 6 oz. waxed cotton and lined with signature Belstaff check cotton twill, the main fastening of the jacket is a metal zip covered by a snap fastening storm flap and the Trialmaster also features a buckle fastening for the collar and an adjustable belt to suit the wearers desired fit. Details also include an inside pocket and four outer pockets including one angled map pocket.  

Designed for gruelling conditions and built to last, the Trialmaster does exactly what Belstaff designed it for and is just as good now as it was way back when. Shop the Belstaff Trialmaster In-Store and Online at Aphrodite Clothing.
