There are lots of brilliant things about living in Britain: a wide range of options on Deliveroo, and orderly queues that you mean you don’t need to jostle to keep your space in line.

However, there is a downside to island living: wind. And we’ve been experiencing a lot of it recently with Storm Ciara and then Dennis.

We live next to one of the biggest oceans on the planet and so it’s little wonder that our fair isle is more prone to windy weather than other countries.

Luckily though, we also have Liam Gallagher, who taught us that the answer to everything is to wear a windbreaker. And he was right.

So, we’ve searched high and low to find the best bunch of breeze-barriers, for men and women, so that you can leave the house without looking like a multi-layered meatball.

From sleek monochrome numbers to clashing prints that will stand out anywhere, these are our top picks, and they’re all under £100.

The best windbreakers for men

Play it safe with this lightweight, black windbreaker. It looks sleek, will go with anything in your wardrobe and will never go out of style. Plus, the hood with drawstring and cords adds an extra level of breeze-battling.

Largo II Long Length Waterproof Insulated Jacket | £29.95 from Regatta

This high-tech windbreaker is made with Isotex 5000 fabric which is waterproof, breathable and windproof. Reduced from £100 to just £29.95 it’s the bargain of the windy-season.

Mountain Light Windshell Jacket | £45 from The North Face

This print is called ‘lunatic’ but we actually think it would be lunacy to brave the windy weather without it. The North Face know what they’re doing when it comes to outwear so this is definitely a trustworthy option for a first-timer.

This unisex jacket means business, just listen to its credentials: it has a full length internal front storm flap, an adjustable hood and can be neatly packed away into its accompanying bag.

Pentagon Artaxes Softshell Jacket | £76.86 from UKMCPRO

Go full Liam Gallagher in this olive windbreaker, or dial it down slightly with four other colours. This jacket is a favourite of the military and police force, but it’s also just pretty brilliant for civilians who feel the chill.
