I thought I’d show you my latest gilet purchase during the Debenhams Blue Cross sale.

Originally I was looking for a navy blue gilet, as navy seems to be the new black these days! But I came across this gorgeous Craghoppers thunder grey Kilnsey gilet during my search, and I have to say the colour and feel of this gilet are both equally fabulous.

To start with, the colour which is a warm shade of blue-grey, mixes gorgeously with the white and grey fur lined detachable hood.

The fabric has a soft flannel look to the outer with a smooth silk lining and the gilet is slightly padded with a luxuriously soft synthetic insulation.

I love the fact that this gilet is so comfortle and keeps me warm without overheating during the Spring like weather we have at the moment. It’s due to the special insulation which is not heavy but keeps away the cool breeze, with an added bonus of the gilet being water resistant aswell, which is a huge plus during our continuing changeable British weather.

The gilet has a zip and velcro front fastening with two side pockets, with the added bonus of a hood and fur trim which is detachable, making this jacket a great transitional piece of outerwear during the changing seasons.

Due to it’s subtle colour, this gilet can be paired with any colour like my brightly coloured jeggings or patterned cigerette trousers for example.

Having worn my gilet a few times lately as the weather seems to finally be settling into Spring, I have been pleasantly surprised how warm it has kept me, even though it is not that padded like my sheepskin lined gilet from Fat Face.

Unfortunately, I think this gilet is now sold out since the Debenhams sale, but Craghoppers certainly have plenty of other superb choices of gilets available, just like this dovegr compresslite reversible vest in black/grey.

Plus Debenhams still have a 50% discount off most of their outerwear items, making this another great bargain at £37.50.
