6) RLX Ralph Lauren Fairway Jacket Force Grey £249.00
The Brigadier's personal favourite this one. And he knows a thing or two about the textile industry, having made his fortune in the silk trade in the late 1900s. Anyway, this full zip jacket from RLX is made with piece dyed poly in a two layer hybrid with mesh lining for rain protection and a comfortable feel.
The jacket has side body shingles for ventilation , zippered hand pockets that are integrated into the seams, an adjustable hem with bungee cord and a pull with a flat front hem construction to keep the swing radius clear of the fabric. RLX logos on the left collar bone, and centre back of the body with written logo on the front right pocket edge.
7) Under Armour Gore-Tex Paclite Jacket Black £239.00
You never see Jordan Spieth looking damp under the collar do you? Well, that's because when the going gets tough he wears the Gore-tex Paclite jacket from Under Armour.
Made with UA storm technology which repels water without sacrificing breathability, the Gore-tex construction is fully waterproof as well as wind resistant due to a bonded 2.5 layer fabric. The jacket features zip hand pockets, an internal chest media pocket and adjustable hem and cuffs with Under Armour logo at the wearer's left chest.
