+ The Pertex Quantum outer fabric is tough and hardwearing, while hydrophobic down repels moisture to ensure you’ll stay warm even in damp conditions. The considered design incorporates storm flaps, zip guards, an external collar hook and a stuff sack.

- Snug fitting arm holes make it harder to add layers underneath. Insulating baffles are sturdy but a little less flexible than others here. It’s also lacking an inner security pocket.

VERDICT: A neat, functional gilet that combines high quality materials with generally good design.
