The Maver Performance Thermal Quilted Jacket comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

Description: quilted jacket with hood.

Specifications: windproof; showerproof; breathable; adjustable hood; adjustable hem cord; chin guard; elasticated cuffs; full-length zip; two zip-up pockets; sizes M to 5XL.

My verdict: available in seven sizes, this quilted jacket is ideal for cold days, and allows room for you to wear layers of clothing comfortably.

It also has a hood, which helps to retain valuable body heat at this time of year.

Additional protection around the neck and chin are welcome, as they prevent drafts getting to your body. The zippered pockets are useful for protecting your valuables. It looks like an ideal jacket for spring and autumn weather, too.

Price: £69.99.
