Understated good looks, warm and practical
Would not really work as a hard core outdoor garment

Not all outdoor gear has to make you look like you’re about to head off up Everest, and the Khuno is a good example – for whilst it will work fine in bad weather thanks to being constructed with a combination of two weights of Corelof insulation and windproof, weather-resistant and supple Windstopper fabric, it’s designed more for urban use.

This makes it ideal for wandering around towns and parks in mid-winter or in resort after a day on the slopes.

The cut is full length jacket with a trim profile through the sleeves and it’s also lightweight, and features include an insulated hood, chin guard, gusseted underarms, a hidden drop pocket with water-tight zipper, two high-volume hand pockets and two internal chest pockets.

We liked the understated looks too, and if you’re more of an urbanite than an outdoor animal the Khuno is well worth checking out.
