Padded and Quilted Body Warmers

For a super cosy winter look, choose a ladies gilet with a faux fur trimmed hood. There’s a whole range of features your can choose from in a padded body warmer or quilted gilet, including handy zip pockets to keep your essentials safe while you ride, a water resistant finish, a two way zip for ease of movement in the saddle, stetch side panels for a flattering fit, and a high neck to keep the wind chill off.
Softshell Equestrian Gilets
BA softshell gilet or a lightweight body warmer is perfect for summer wear – it’s a great way to add warmth to your outfit when a coat would be too warm. A softshell gilet has the added benefit of being wind and water resistant, so is perfect for a changeable English summer day.
How to Style your Equestrian Gilet
The gilet is a popular equestrian choice of clothing, not only for it’s warmth and practicality, but also for it’s style. For an added layer of warmth in the summer, a lightweight ladies gilet can be styled with a short sleeve polo shirt, or long sleeved baselayer, and looks equally as great with jeans, jods or shorts. For those in-between seasons of spring and autumn, a gilet is a great statement piece that keeps you cosy and can really make your outfit pop. Teamed up with breeches, a gilet will look great over a baselayer, hoodie or sweater. For an athletic look choose a slimline gilet with stretch side panels and subtle quilting or padding. Or for a cosy chic look, choose a bold puffer or padded style, with some neck detailing such as a high neck, hood, drawcords or faux fur trim. On the coldest winter days it’s all about warm layers, so choose a lightweight Primaloft fill gilet with a slimline design that will fit comfortably under a warm winter coat.
