WHAT IS IT?

Weird Fish Beatrix Waxed Fin­ish Wa­ter­proof Coat, RRP £100, www.weird­fish.co.uk

I WANT IT BE­CAUSE:

It’s per­fect for wet, win­ter days and this wa­ter­proof coat looks great too.

USE­FUL FOR:

Ro­bust enough for win­ter dog walks, but stylish enough for a trip to the shops.

HIGH POINT:

It’s not so thick that you can’t layer up un­der­neath. So although it will keep you warm and dry, you won’t end up a sweaty mess on milder days or brisk walks.

LOW POINT:

Siz­ing is on the big side.

WHAT IS IT?

Haglöfs Skuta Mid Proof Eco. £120. www.ha­glofs.com

I WANT IT BE­CAUSE:

It’s an in­cred­i­bly com­fort­able hik­ing boot with a wide fore­front fit for added com­fort.

USE­FUL FOR:

All man­ner of hik­ing, but they’re also pre­sentable enough for ev­ery­day wear. At just 475g they are light yet sturdy.

HIGH POINT:

They’re wa­ter­proof, while some tech­ni­cal el­e­ments (such as high abra­sion re­sis­tance rub­ber on the heel for dura­bil­ity) are very good.

LOW POINT:

I’m not con­vinced by the aes­thet­ics of the plas­tic mesh across the toes.
