Craghoppers Corey

£30.00

Unlike most outdoor companies, Craghoppers has a policy of being carbon-neutral and so with many of the features of this fleece mid layer being similar to many others’, those more ethical credentials give it the edge. At 410g this is reasonably light and the close-knit fabric also makes it a little more windproof than some others, without reducing breathability noticeably. ...

Berghaus Activity Jacket IA

£60.00

This midweight fleece from Berghaus is a touch too big and the fleece cuffs too baggy. The collar is perfect, though, and the drawcord hem does a good job of sealing warmth in. Cut from a lovely, soft, recycled Polartec Thermal Pro fabric, the Activity is a warm and cosy fleece that performs well both as a mid and top-layer. ...

Snugpak Sleeka Jacket

£80.00

This insulated jacket has a drawstring adjustment for the hem and the collar; one internal and two external pockets all with zips; good-sized stormflaps over the pockets; packs into its own stuffsack; manufactured in the UK; really warm.

The North Face Apex Elixir

£90.00

This soft shell jacket from The North Face is a great fit in the body and sleeves, and with a light stretchy fabric, drawcord adjustable hem and Velcro adjustment on the cuffs, you couldn’t ask for more. But although it was really easy to move around in, it didn’t feel as reassuringly warm and cosy as the best in class. ...

Berghaus W Hobart III

£100.00

This windproof fleece from Berghaus is a pretty good fit, although the fabric didn’t have instant “ahh” appeal, feeling heavy and bulky in comparison to the best. The hem is quite short, which will suit some. Performs impeccably on windy days, offering excellent windproofing and breathability. It’s a very warm fleece, but mesh pockets and elastic cuffs add welcome ventilation. ...

Mountain Equipment Lightline

£150.00

This is a very warm duvet jacket, and it’s warmer than most others. It incorporates 250g of down insulation, and the shell is very water-resistant. The collar is also fleeced-lined. There is a little extra reinforcement on the sleeves and shoulders for extra durability. You get a removable hood too, which fitted well and had plenty of insulation. The two ...
