OUR pick of the best explorer-type jackets this Autumn in price order.
Superdry’s Patrol jacket (£159.99) has a double zip, a fleece lined hood and 2 inside pockets. Great colours too.
North Face’s Gotham Jacket (£220) has a Hyvent outer and a Goose down filling on the inside. It has a shorter length fit compared to the others here too.
Bear Grylls’ Bear Polar Jacket (£225) has 90% Duck down and a waterproof outer shell. The hood is removable and a snow skirt means we could wear this skiing or snowboarding too. It has a lifetime guarantee.
Penfield’s Hoosac parka ($450) has full of thick 360g down feathers and has a hardwearing 60/40 cotton nylon outer shell. The 70’s inspired Cobalt Blue colour and leather cord pullers make an apperance along with a coyote fur hood but best of all are the fleece-lined hand-warmer pockets…
Peak Performance’s Rob Vintage Down Jacket (£425) is filled with 90% duck down feathers and has a brushed outer layer for a soft feel. Fur trimmed hood, leather trims and chunky shoe lace draw strings along with imitation horn buttons give this a real rugged – and vintage – look.
