The ultimate WIRED Christmas gift guide for 2020


Seven Layer (7L) is a Manchester-based outdoor brand, founded around the US Marine principle of only needing seven layers of clothing for all eventualities. The result is a capsule collection of impressively adaptable highly technical items with bags of urban style, 50 per cent of which is made in Britain. Our pick is the 3L Waterproof Outer jacket manufactured from 100 per cent recycled polyester and a recycled hydrophilic monolithic membrane with a hydrostatic head (how waterproof it is) of 20,000mm. It’s an impressive rain jacket, and one made all the more flexible by the fact the arctic-worthy Modular Down Outer zips neatly inside to cocoon the wearer from the elements.

Price: £350 | Seven Layer
