Gore Women's Air 2.0 AS Lady Vest (£100)
Kerry says: One hundred English pounds may seem like a lot of money for a sleeveless jacket but for top-of-the-range clobber, Gore are a brand that deliver value for money. Suitable for cold summer days (and let's not pretend we don't have plenty of those coming our way) and breezy autumn runs, this gilet is made with Gore's WINDSTOPPER active shell material, which means it's not only highly wind- and rain-resistant but it's lightweight and breathable too.
The weather protection is a point worth over-emphasising: don't be fooled by the minimal nature of the garment. If you wear one of these you'll be snug and warm without feeling constricted or weighed down: a combination which is worth paying a little extra for, as are the impressive design details such as the slim feminine cut; rear and front pockets for keys and other accessories; reflective detailing and adjustable drawcord collar.
