Mountain Equipment Mens Touchstone Jacket
We reckon the Touchstone is spot on for anyone still pining for the late, lamented Karrimor Alpiniste fleece. It's a super-warm, luxurious-feeling, winter-weight jacket made from thick, recycled Thermal Pro fleece, complete with ergo cuffs, thumb loops and a grown-on hood along with a collar.
It's very warm, but should be ideal for end of day pottering about or
simply standing around gawping at the view in winter. Price will be £100 and
weight 645 grammes. Think of it as a winter version of the ME Shroud
fleece and you won't be far wrong.
