Our highest performance jacket of the season is the McIntyre: if you have a lifestyle or hobby that requires more technical performance from your clothing, then McIntyre is definitely the jacket for you. In addition to all the features listed above, McIntyre has elbow darts as well as articulated seams to ease movement, and under arm ventilation to keep you cool. McIntyre is the perfect waterproof jacket for tackling the Yorkshire Three Peaks, or even just walking the dog. Available in satsuma orange, or charcoal black.

Sykes and Dawson both have an 8K/8K waterproof performance rating, which is more than enough for most outdoor activities and weather conditions. If you refer to our Waterproof Guide [LINK] you can find out what each waterproof rating really means, and which one is necessary for you.

Sykes has a more technical look to the jacket, making it perfect for walking the dog or heading to the pub. Available in forest green, or black. Dawson has a more casual look with its classic 4-pocket parka set up making it great for a trip to the pub, or the daily commute. Available in naval blue, or dark khaki.
