Choose the outdoors specialists for winter jackets for women

When the ice and rain start to get serious, the clothing has to stop being frivolous. It's worth checking out the mountain gear stockists for really warm winter jackets. Women with an eye for detail needn't sacrifice style for comfort.

The Go Outdoors store (gooutdoors.co.uk) will be familiar to hikers, campers and mountain enthusiasts, and stock a great range of comfortable and stylish women's jackets. If you sign up for their discount card you can make substantial savings on jackets and outdoors gear.

They have a North Face Women's Resolve waterproof jacket which has a lightweight mesh lining for ventilation. The outer layer stays dry to the touch. The hood folds into the collar when not needed, and there are useful pockets for mobile, purse, and that compass or GPS to complete the hardy hiker look. These are marked down to £85.00 for discount card holders.

For jackets that combine the pretty with the practical head to boohoo.com. Their Cindy Fur Collared jacket is designed to look chic and casual when you wander down country lanes kicking the fallen leaves. It's warm and stylish, ideal for combining with jeans and chunky knitwear. It's available in 2 colours, chocolate and stone, for £45.
