The Aurora Womens Down Jacket from Mountain Warehouse is the perfect winter coat as it offers both extreme warmth and protection from the rain.
It is not often you find a warm winter coat that is fully waterproof, but this has coped extremely well with everything the weather has thrown at me so far as it has with taped seams to keep the water out and a feather/down filling for warmth.
The coat has been tested to keep you warm in temperatures as low as -60C, so this jacket is perfect for outdoor lovers like us.
The outer layer is made of 100% nylon with 75% down and 25% feather filling and the jacket fully waterproof, rated at 5000mm, with the IsoDry fabric allowing air to circulate which makes sure you stay dry on the inside and lets moisture out.
The jacket has an inner adjustable cuff with a Velcro strap and an inner ribbed cuff for warmth and comfort but it is the giant hood that has an elastic cord for a better fit and detachable faux fur trim for extra warmth that is my favourite part of the coat – perfect for hiding under when the weather turns.
The jacket also has a down proof lining which prevents the feathers escaping and
multiple pockets including one internal MP3 player/mobile pocket, two large front pockets with poppers which are big enough to store my camera and lens.
Teamed with my Hotter GTX Marlowe Boots, a duo-tone nubuck/suede combination knee-high boot with goretex technology to keep my feet warm and dry, this is the perfect outfit for keeping me warm and dry this winter!
Now we just need some really cold weather or snow as this jacket keeps me so warm I keep having to take it off as the weather has been so mild.
