Kjus Formula Four-Way Stretch jacket, £730 Two things Scandinavians do well are fashion and winter sports. Kjus have thought of everything – this even has a detachable balaclava.
Burton Mix Master glove, £105 The Mix Master gloves allow you to throw your iPod Nano or iPhone into your jacket or pack, then control it by simply tapping on your glove.
