There are lots of good outdoor brands that make exceptional all weather technical wear, but very few can manage to combine functionality and aesthetics as well as Holubar, and this beautiful ‘Deep Powder’ jacket kinda proves my point.

The Deep Powder BU15 (to give it it’s full title) is constructed from Limonta Tech Nylon which is water-proof and wind-proof, just what you need at this time of year.  The interior has been filled with a mixture of 90% down and 10% feathers which will keep you super warm, even in the harshest of climates.

Better still it has detachable arms so you can wear it as a handsome gilet and show off one of your expensive Italian sweaters!  The hood is also detachable too, should the need to remove it ever arise.  Other features include two front pockets (with snap fastening buttons), elasticated cuffs, and a zip up mobile pocket on the inside.  The piece has been finished with an embroidered Holubar logo to the left sleeve.

This splendid winter smoother comes in six different colours, my favourite being this stunning autumnal orange iteration (try saying that after a few shandies).  So there you have it, a perfect blend of functionality and aesthetics, and you can buy one here.
