We know the changing of the seasons brings with it, typically, changeable weather. This is especially true for autumn. Whilst the changing colours of the leaves are usually a beloved sight by many, the varied elements that come with this, are usually less loved. We’re of course talking about dropping temperatures, increasingly unsettled weather and the days gradually getting shorter as we head into winter.
Getting outside begins to feel more and more like a challenge in autumn. But we know making sure you have the right kit to keep you protected is paramount to ensure you’re comfortable on the trail! Cue our extensive range of jackets and fleeces, from GORE-TEX waterproof shells to warm, breathable fleeces and packable down jackets. Whatever adventure you’re plotting this season, continue to do what you love with our trusted-to-perform layers.
Not sure where to begin? Here are some suggestions for those colder, changeable days ahead…

Autumn can still hold some wonderfully warm days, even into October. Despite this, as the season sets in, the mornings and evenings become noticeably chillier. The answer to this ‘nip in the air’? A trusted, warm fleece, of course, which you can include as part of a layering system. The Protium range is amongst one of our most popular and, due to demand, this season we’re adding new colours to our bestselling classic hoodie. In addition to this, we’ve expanded the range and added even warmer options, including the Protium XT, which features a more luxurious fleecy liner, ideal for those who really feel the cold. Also available in a women’s fit too.
