Winter warmer: 10 best outdoor gilets
Planning a walk this weekend? These useful jackets make a good stop gap for those days when it’s not quite warm enough to go coat free
Thursday 13 March 2014
Find yourself feeling a bit too warm when you leave the house in the mornings? Problem is, it’s still too soon to pack away your coat for the year. So what’s the solution?
Go sleeveless. An outdoor gilet will keep your body warm, whilst giving you freedom of movement in your arms. Meanwhile the wind resistant, water repellent fabric will protect you from the elements. From the Fat Face Amy Gilet, with its smart looks, super cosy fleece lining and feather filling, through to the highly technical Berghaus Men’s Scafell Hydrodown Vest, which is as lightweight as they come, we have researched the best of the bunch.

The North Face’s Nuptse Vest is a classic. Not only does it look good, but the attention to detail means it ticks every box. For a less expensive option, Superdry have some great gilets this season, including the super cool Retro Sherpa Gilet. For kids, the bright looking Crew Clothing Preston Gilet is both practical and smart.
