There’s little doubting the comfort of the Blade, which is cut from a lovely soft, stretchy fabric with a really cosy fleece lining and high collar, but the Lycra-lined cuffs wouldn’t pull up. This jacket was just too hot for strenuous walking on anything but the coldest days – even with the venting pockets and pit zips wide open. It’s also rather bulky and heavy to carry.

Verdict: A very warm jacket best-suited to those who really feel the cold, or perhaps prefer gentle strolls rather than strenuous hillwalks. Looks good, though, and would be ideal for skiing.
