3 Columbia OutDry Extreme jacket

To create a jacket that's water-resistant and ultra-breathable, Columbia invented its own rainwear technology. A waterproof membrane on the outside of the jacket prevents it from ‘wetting out', while the outer layer has been designed to repel water and provide protection in the heaviest of downpours. Underarm venting is a great touch, too.

£150

4 Oakley Latch sunglasses

Oakley teams function with fashion with this sunglasses range, designed and inspired by athletes. The arms hold a secret latch when closed, allowing the glasses to be clipped securely onto a top or shirt — a great way to keep them safe on walks in nasty weather.

£110
