Even if the only climbing you intend to do this spring is of the social variety, there are plenty of reasons to wrap yourself in one of these hardy jackets, made specifically for taking on the great outdoors.
First, of course, there's the simple fact that they look ace, thanks to a palette of punchy, spring-ready colours. Then there’s the fact that they’re made of recycled material, which no tree-hugging, adventure-loving man should be without. Last, and by no means least, pulling on one of these bad boys lends you a proper outdoorsy edge, instantly propelling you to Bear Grylls-esque heights of manliness. Grrr.
