PATAGONIA POWSLAYER WOMEN’S JACKET, £600.

Often hailed as the go-to jacket for adventure seekers heading for the back of beyond the PowSlayer’s articulated, regular fit and fuss-free, supple styling belie a rock-solid durability.

It’s a surprising space-saver too, as the three-way stretch Gore-Tex Pro fabric is warm, waterproof, breathable and packs down easily.

A three-way adjustable hood makes sure you won’t miss a thing and cord locks in the hem and hood leave no loose ends.

REIMA REGOR BOYS JACKET, £115.

New from Finland, the Regor’s part of Reima’s kids range (with the Roxana for girls) that puts activity first and can ward off chills down to –20°C.

Jackets come complete with a ReimaGo™ movement sensor tucked out of sight in a pocket, whose app works away collecting data about young ones’ physical exertions – how intense they are and how long they last, so parents can get an accurate picture of how much exercise they are getting.

These trendy jackets also have taped seams to beat the cold and wet, plus breathable polyester linings to reduce the risk of overheating and adjustable cuffs and hems.

RAB MICROLIGHT ALPINE JACKET, £190.

When warmth, weight and packability matter most, reach for Rab’s classic with hydrophobic down which means it’s been treated with water repellant so the down dries quicker and resists water for longer.

The helmet-compatible hood is down-filled, so you stay toasty and the slim fit is pretty flattering too.
