The Minimalist is heavier than some so won’t suit real weight watchers, but it has a flattering, contoured fit and comes in vibrant colours. Sadly, the collar isn’t as snug as rivals’ and has only a small amount of fleece to protect your chin. The fairly breathable Gore-Tex fabric will keep you dry and two pit-zips provide adequate venting. The main zip is one of the best – chunky and easy to do up with cold hands. The hood is volume-adjustable and swivels with head movement to prevent loss of vision, but it is quite small.
Men’s version: Yes
