UOG TOP PICK - Inov-8 Race Elite 260 Thermoshell - best for ultralightweight warmth- we've singled out Inov-8's Race Elite Thermoshell as one of our top recommendations because it provides exceptional warmth but also styling and features are a cut above its rivals.

Primaloft uses a unique microfibre structure which is specially treated to create a core with similar physical and thermal properties to down meaning you will be well insulated against the cold. It's compressible, breathable and has excellent water repellency so you remain dry, warm and comfortable even under the most extreme conditions.

This is a really flexible piece of kit - a lightweight Primaloft insulation layer should be in everyone's pack because most Primaloft jackets will be too warm when slogging up a hill - and a lightweight version gives just enough warmth and protection from cold gusty winds.

The Race Elite 260 is finished really nicely, when worn with the Black outermost the quilting shows giving the garment an attractive texture, when worn Orange outermost the face fabric is free of any stitching.

We like the thumb loops - which replace gloves in all but the coldest conditions.

There may be some people out there who will use the fact that the insulation value can be varied by 10% just by reversing the garment, but for most of us its just a warm functional piece of kit.

Use this all the time for winter travel for which it's ideal, warm stylish light and works on its own and as a layer. It's too warm to run in typical southern England winter conditions and fabric is not (as you would expect) up to any form of abuse. I only gave it 4 stars as after a couple of winters the fabric has ripped where it is stitched at the end of the sleeves. Perhaps I expect too much,
