Snow reviews the Craghoppers Bear Polar jacket - a well-insulated, if bulky, jacket perfect for the celebrity adventurer in your life

bear polar jacket
Overall Score
you feel snug as the proverbial bug once you're fully zipped up
rather bulky and heavy for serious winter sports

Designed exclusively for Bear Grylls, the Polar jacket features a mix of synthetic and 500-fill power down insulation plus a faux fur trim around the hood. It's a pretty bulky jacket for skiing in, but it's obviously designed with that in mind since it comes with a powder skirt.

The Aquadry fabric is waterproof and breathable and the seams are taped, and you get a stack of pockets (eight outer pockets in total plus a zipped inner pocket) and useful features such as inner storm cuffs, adjustable waist, hem and cuffs and a brushed chin guard.

Zipped into the jacket and with the hood up you do feel very protected from the cold and whilst for me the Polar Jacket is a little too warm and bulky for serious skiing, if you feel the cold and like to be well-insulated it might well suit you.
