My personal favourite.
The Flintoff range is a new line at Jacamo, and I probably urged Mike to get these more than I should as I’m a bit of a Freddie Fan! These are the Olive Green Chukka Boots, not made for hiking or long distances but perfect for when you need to look smart without going overboard.
I did lean towards the darker coloured pair, but on arrival these did convert me to the olive side. At £35, I’m sure we bagged a bargain as the stitching and materials used for these are incredibly high quality and made to last – even if they do need to be broken in a little to make them comfortable.
We also decided to splurge on a new winter coat. We splurged a few years ago and wore our last ones to death, so having the opportunity to pick a long-lasting, pocket friendly jacket was too good to pass up! We settled on this one, for £18 in the sale.
This Snowdonia 3-in-1 Jacket is windproof and waterproof which means no matter what the season throws at us it will do him well, especially as it has a removable fleece lining. It has a number of pockets for hiding gadgets away (phone, camera, video camera..) which are secure and waterproof, giving me peace of mind that we aren’t going to lose anything when we are out and about.
