The Iggy jacket from Protest’s Geotech 10.000 Series is certainly bright. It comes in either pink/blue or pink/orange plaid, neither of which are for the shy, or a more muted grey and black check.

Price
£149.99

I wore it for a week skiing in Val Thorens where the temperature was a steady -8ᵒC and layered with a thermal top and Protest’s micro fleece, it kept me warm on the slopes and even on the coldest, windiest chairlifts, but cool enough hiking around all my gear. Its lining is 100% polyamide ad the padding is 100% polyester.

The removable hood is lined with a fake fur, and there are plenty of pockets both inside the jacket and on the outside for your lift pass, tissues, lippy, and everything else you take on the slopes. It’s quite a long jacket – it covers your bum – but you can use the drawstring waistband to adjust it.

One niggle I had was the belt, which is stitched into the jacket at the back. Fastened by Velcro, it can’t be made tighter and hung rather loose at my waist rather than nipping it in to create a svelter look (which I would have welcomed!). Also, a couple of times it caught at my skis as I hoisted them to my shoulder, which was a little annoying.

On the whole though, the jacket performed well. And my friends certainly had no problems spotting me on the busy pistes!
