The Outdoor Company’s Top Winter Picks (and top winter pics!)


Following our first flurry of snow this season, the team have chosen their favourite items to help you survive any outdoor adventure! Check out our top picks (and top pics!)…

Phil Tiney, Account Manager, chooses… the Berghaus RG Alpha 3in1 Jacket

“I love the versatility and warmth of the removable inner fleece in this jacket….The outer shell is fully waterproof, lightweight and breathable and it’s perfect for braving the cold on the drive into work each morning and for walking the dog. You can’t beat a Berghaus, really… it looks good and has great performance.”

John Ratcliffe, Account Manager, chooses… the Nano Puff Jacket from Patagonia

“As well as being a great-looking jacket, the Nano Puff is warm, windproof and water-resistant, using warm, incredibly lightweight and highly compressible synthetic down. It’s perfect for the winter and also makes me feel like I’m helping Patagonia to save the planet… one Nano Puff jacket at a time!”

Dan Rogers, Account Manager, chooses… the Dubliner Jacket from Helly Hansen

“Not only is the Dubliner a great technical piece, it fits really well and is ideal whether you’re heading into town or taking the kids to the park. It’s waterproof, breathable and windproof with fully sealed seams to protect you against the elements.”

James Downes, Warehouse Manager, chooses… The North Face Apex Etip Gloves

“These gloves are perfect for use at work in the warehouse but are great for all outdoor activities. The inner fleece reduces wind chill, keeping your hands warm and comfortable. The U|R® Powered palm feature allows you to interact with your touchscreen device which is certainly handy when I need to be tracking orders.”

Aaron Kelsall, Account Manager, chooses… the Alpine Pro jacket from Montane

“Designed with climbers and mountain walkers in mind, this is a high-spec technical piece – perfect for my journey to work in the winter as well as the outdoor activities I’m involved in outside of work. It’s an extremely versatile and lightweight mountain shell with a stiffened hood peak which gives stability and the tall collar offers protection to the face when faced with icy winds on the slopes.”

Barry Walker, Account Manager, chooses… the Crew Vest from Helly Hansen and the Explorer Trolley


“Although made in true marine style, this vest is versatile and perfect on land as well as at sea! It’s windproof, waterproof and breathable - and provides a warm comfortable layer. The Explorer trolley is a perfect travel piece. It’s hardwearing and roomy and ideal for trips anywhere as it’s made from waterproof fabric and ensures all your kit gets to its destination in one piece!”

Amy Shenton, Account Manager, chooses… The Elios Club helmet from Petzl and DMM Centre Alpine harness

“It’s not what I wear to pop down the shops on a weekend, but this helmet from Petzl is versatile and durable, perfect for climbing, mountaineering, caving, canyoning… It’s fully adjustable and adapts to all head shapes. So as well as being comfortable, its ABS shell and polystyrene foam liner offers effective impact protection. The DMM Centre Alpine harness is comfortable and has a simple, robust design with thread back buckles and a huge range of fit.”

Michelle Smith, Marketing Manager, chooses… The North Face Bones Beanie and the Powder Lite Jacket from Columbia

“While offering reliable warmth and comfort, the Bones Beanie also looks great! The durable acrylic fabric blocks out the wind and the microfleece inside keeps your head nice and warm. The Powder Lite from Columbia is incredibly snug, with its Omni-HEAT™ lining which reduces heat loss, and it’s really lightweight.”

Paul Morley-Smith, Operations Director, chooses… the Axion jacket from RAB

“The Axion is a hardwearing down jacket, perfect for winter walking and watching the kids play rugby from the touchline on chilly Sunday mornings. Filled with 650 fill power hydrophobic down, it’s reassuringly warm, durable and water resistant, making sure you stay cosy when the temperatures start to drop. And to boot, the hood and cuffs are made from Pyrotec - a synthetic insulation that dries quickly. A winter workhorse with all the features you need to shelter from the cold.”
