2 Avid Dura-Stop Quilted Jacket

Warm yet breathable, this quilted jacket is the perfect autumn accessory. It boasts multi-layer insulation with a shower-proof Dura-Stop outer fabric, plus elasticated cuffs and waist, a smooth lining and zipped pockets. Available in M to XXL.

3 ESP Syncro XT Loaded

One of the best main lines around, this stuff is highly abrasion resistant and sinks quickly. It has a dark olive green colouration and has just the right level of stretch for feel and cushioning.

and breathability.
