Rohan Furnace

A warm but bulky jacket, made from a fairly heavyweight fleece fabric. The fit is generous – long in the arms and at the hem – but the chunky cuffs are stretchy, and easy to pull up if things do get a bit warm. The hip pockets, which are protected by zippers, are also mesh-lined so can also be used for ventilation when needed. Don’t forget to do them back up again when you get cold! In action, it works best as a warm mid-layer beneath a shell, as it’s just too bulky to carry in a pack. Unfortunately, the fabric tends to pill quite quickly with wear, but for only £50, it is still pretty good value for money.
