+ This well-fitting jacket has clearly been designed for the female figure – it’s not just a men’s version made smaller. Narrow baffles under the arms and sides help to reduce bulk. Other features we liked included a hood with a stiffened peak and zip pulls with easy grab tabs, ideal when wearing gloves.
- More expensive than most other jackets here but it is also one of the warmest, whilst remaining relatively lightweight.
VERDICT Warm, lightweight, windproof and breathable, with Nikwax-treated Hydrodown insulation that offers warmth even in wet conditions.
