Choose a high visibility jacket

high visibility jacketIf you’re considering a new waterproof jacket for mountain walking or the three peaks challenge, consider choosing a high visibility colour. A bright red or yellow jacket for example will stand out and be easier to see if the mist and fog falls while you’re out on your walk.

If your team are walking a few yards apart in single file, it is possible that the person at the back won’t be able to see the person at the front in bad weather. Wearing bright colours makes it easier to spot people and keep the team together. If you find yourself in difficulty on the mountain it will also help the rescue team to find you.
