The days are getting shorter, Christmas is starting to creep its way further along supermarket aisles and the abysmal British summer is now turning into the dark and gloomy British winter. OK, so it’s not quite as bad as I make it sound. There are some great deals on Lindt chocolate, the autumn colours look incredible and we are occasionally treated to one of those beautifully crisp clear mornings that set the day up in the best way possible.
One thing that can’t be overlooked, though, is that the temperatures are dropping and we’re at the receiving end of a lot of rain. This shouldn’t spell a stop for your UK adventures though, you just need to have the right gear and the right inspiration for those winter adventures.
Well, one piece of kit which seems particularly well-suited to the task is Rab’s Valiance Jacket (men’s version here), and we’re offering you the chance to win one! Rab believes the Valiance Jacket is “the ultimate warm and waterproof down jacket”, and looking at the spec sheet you’d be hard pushed to make a case against that statement.
The outer is made from Pertex Shield and is fully taped and waterproof. Inside the jacket you’ll find 800 fill power goose down offering excellent warmth, and it’s had a hydrophobic treatment, too, which means it retains its loft when damp rather than collapsing like regular down. A helmet-compatible hood with wired peak, zipped hand warmer pockets and internal security pocket are also present and the jacket comes in a black, red and grey colourway for men or berry, black and grey for women. Essentially, the Valiance Jacket seems to be your perfect companion for the colder months ahead.
