Mountain Hardwear Kelvinator (2012)

£220.00

MOUNTAIN HARDWEAR KELVINATOR £220 Our rating: ***** Review: A classic-looking mountain-style down jacket, complete with hood for battening down the hatches when it’s really cold outside. As it uses natural down filling inside, it is susceptible to wet conditions, but a thicker grade of face fabric means that the filling is a bit more protected than in a really lightweight ...

Rab Baltoro Light

£110.00

It’s not often that an article of clothing ticks all the boxes, but this does. The excellent fabric provides a decent amount of insulation and is also incredibly weather-resistant and very breathable. It has two huge hip/chest pockets that double as vents and the cuffs are fastened with Velcro. Single-handed drawcords adjust the hem, trapping or releasing warmth, and another ...

Montane Dragonfly Shirt 2009

£40.00

Mountain Equipment Astron Hooded/Astral Hooded 2008

£120.00

This soft shell jacket was developed specifically for those who want a soft shell that is stretchy, light and easy to pack in your rucksack – and it is one of the lightest here. It uses Polartec Power Shield fabric, which is extremely wind-resistant and very water-resistant, but most importantly it is also more breathable than the more waterproof options, ...

Haglöfs Gemini Hood

£75.00

This fleece mid layer just about has it all. At just 304g, it has a hood, which makes it a rare beast – and for me this gives it an edge. The fabric is warm enough for year-round use while the two chest pockets allow easy storage and access to maps on the move while wearing a rucksack. The stretch ...

Millet Touring Hoodie

£160.00

Soft shell is such a broad category that choosing just one really depends on your definition and expected use of the jacket. For me, a soft shell is a garment that is more wind- and water-resistant than a fleece and also more durable, which allows it to be worn on the hill whenever you can get by without your waterproof ...
