The outer fabric of a jacket
The outer fabric of a jacket (or shell) is the tissue which keeps the insulation in the jacket which ensures the mechanical strength.
The outer fabric of a winter jacket is usually nylon, which is a very strong and lightweight material. The nylon ripstop fabric is often (or raster). The ripstop fabrics are more resistant than conventional fabrics but weigh the same. Prefer a ripstop fabric that brings reliability.
To choose the strength of your jacket is easier, the fabric is lightweight and compressible least it will resist rubbing. You decide whether you prefer the weight or resistance.
Some use a waterproof fabric jackets. These are generally heavier and a lot less breathable than traditional jackets. Unless you have a very specific use of your jacket in the head versatility provided by a jacket and a waterproof jacket in the bag is better.
The accessories of a winter jacket
Some accessories can improve certain characteristics of the jacket. Key:
They add a bit of weight but help prolong your jacket. They are found particularly often on the shoulders.
The storage pocket
Very practical it makes it easy to store the jacket in a small volume
The hood is not essential on a jacket and adds a lot of weight but if you are looking for clothing for extreme conditions, the jacket with hood allows for very hot making the link between the head and body.
