Keep cosy during the winter months with our edit of seriously toasty outerwear, from long padded coats to outdoorsy gilets and puffer jackets
Best for low temperatures: the long padded coat
As close to a duvet you can wear as it gets, a full-length padded coat is the ultimate in winter outerwear, taking on the worst of the season’s weather with ease. The perfect layer to pop over thermals to keep snug on chilly walks, our long puffer coats combine weather-beating technology with design details that will help you stay warm and dry, such as funnel necks and hidden hoods. This feather and down long padded coat with a hood is a classic cold-weather style you’ll wear for many winters to come. For more outerwear inspiration, read our coat guide.
Best for rainy days: the Stormwear puffer jacket
The Great British winter requires a coat that will protect you from the freezing temperatures and seemingly endless showers that are hallmarks of the season. Many of our long padded coats and padded jackets feature water-repellent Stormwear technology as well as Thermowarmth technology to keep them super warm yet lightweight, making them as practical as they are stylish. This black hooded puffer jacket features drizzle-beating Stormwear and a feather and down filling to keep you toasty on the coldest days. Add this season’s most-wanted knitwear for a layered look.
Best for versatility: the padded gilet
A layering hero that’ll keep your core warm without restricting movement, a gilet is ideal when your coat is too hot but you still need some insulation. Plus, it can be worn under a winter coat for extra cosiness. Marrying style and practicality, this khaki gilet is reversible. The lightly quilted khaki side features water-repellent Stormwear technology to keep you dry and the borg side adds extra snugness when it’s cold outside. Sporty padded gilets are a useful addition to your fitness kit for cold-weather workouts. Our Goodmove gilets are made from recycled polyester with zip pockets to stash your keys and phone, making them a versatile layer for outdoor exercise on chilly days.
