Killy Nymphe Down jacket
The fur trim might be faux but there's nothing fake about its 650-fill duck down insulation. The exterior materials are waterproof and breathable, and have a little stretch for a slimline, tailored look. (£550; killy.com).
K2 fishing poles
Be honest, do you really need ski poles made from carbon fibre? These all-aluminium poles are tough enough for everyday downhillers: lightweight, stiff and with secure rubber grips. A great pocket-money purchase (£25; k2skis.com).
1000 miles ski socks
This company guarantees no blisters or holes after 1,000 miles in its walking and running socks. These calf-length ski socks are just as well made, spun from an acrylic/wool/Lycra mix for comfort (£16; 1000mile.co.uk).
