The wonders of the night sky are best viewed from out in the countryside, where light pollution is at a minimum. There's plenty to see in the sky at the moment so why not plan an exciting nighttime adventure? Make sure you wrap up warm with these brand new coats and jackets from Barbour!
The most exciting feature in the current night sky is Neowise, a comet that had never been seen from Earth up until a couple of months ago: it's scheduled to return in around 7,000 years! You can also clearly see Jupiter, Mars and Venus sharing the sky together and putting on quite an extraordinary show.
Last but definitely not least, the yearly Perseids and Aquarids meteor showers have returned and so you've a good chance of spotting one streaking across the heavens. Don't forget to make a wish!
Back on Earth, we here at Ken Varey Outdoor World have been updating our stellar collection of outdoor clothing: among the brand new garments now available is a choice selection of stylish, practical country clothing from world-class brand Barbour. The range includes:
Distinctive, trademark Barbour styling is presented here in a fresh, modern package. The breathable, waterproof jacket is designed to deliver carefree protection, ensuring that the wearer is cool, comfortable and dry whatever the weather conditions. Practical design features include a fully-adjustable hood, roomy bellows pockets and upper handwarmers. A final flourish of reflective branding detail completes the effortlessly-iconic aesthetic.
Rendered in a rich Navy Marl colour, the new Overland from Barbour was inspired by the unpredictability and fierceness of coastal weather: if it can deal with that, then it's perfect for keeping you warm in the countryside during a night spent gazing at the stars! Two side pockets are given an elegant, stylish twist with stud detail while a subtle and sophisticated Beacon logo plate decorates one sleeve.
