The Big Winter Chill Is On Us!
As the mercury is set to drop even lower this weekend its time to get kitted out in some of our finest cold weather outerwear and headwear.
Unless you have been hiding under a rock somewhere for the last couple of days, you may have noticed the sudden drop in temperature. Don’t worry though as we’ve got all your cold weather apparel needs covered with a solid range of winter warmers with big chunky down jackets and beanie hats. Just because its cold doesn’t mean you have to over compensate for style and a solid piece of outerwear will not just have you looking the bees knees, but also warm, the main function of a proper jacket. Doing your research when it comes to winter jackets is key as with the right care and attention a good jacket can last you a life time. If you want the best performance from your outerwear that you can also rely on from the same piece in 5 years time, you have to start viewing outerwear as an investment, which to many of us it already is.
Highlights from our ‘winter chill’ outerwear include some of the best performance driven outdoors brands such as Fjällräven and Patagonia, as well as premium designer labels such as GANT. We’ve got the Patagonia Hi Loft Down Jacket featuring a robust and water repellent Ripstop fabric with 600 fill duck down for superior warmth. Then we’ve got the Fjällräven Expedition Down Lite Jacket which is slightly lighter than their famous Expedition Jacket built for Arctic extremes and exploration, although virtually the same in appearance. The Expedition Down Lite Jacket features 35% less down than the original making it more suited to normal winter temperatures. Last up its the sleek looking GANT Alta Down Jacket packing down insulation available in marine blue for a slightly smarter look.
So that’s the jacket sorted, now your going to need a decent looking hat to match, and most importantly to keep your canister warm in the cold. We’ve got a huge selection of beanies for the winter chill from classic heritage labels like Lyle & Scott, French and Italian sportswear brands like Fila, ellesse and Lacoste and performance outdoors brands including Patagonia and Fjällräven.
