Velcro adjustable cuffs roll up easily when it gets too warm, and the fleece-lined fabric felt great against the skin. Polartec Power Shield fabrics are only 98 per cent windproof, but this makes them extremely breathable. The fabric is soft, making it feel like a fleece, but with the bonus of wind and shower resistance.

Verdict: A fantastic soft shell for cool weather walking. Very breathable and wind and shower-resistant, too, with the added benefit of a removable hood to protect your face. Pricey, though.
