Yahoo Lifestyle is committed to finding you the best products at the best prices. We may receive a share from purchases made via links on this page. Pricing and availability are subject to change.

Over recent weeks there are only a select few items of clothing we have truly relied on - pyjamas, loungewear and a thick winter coat.

The cold, wet, windy, and even snowy weather is in full swing, and while some may be staying indoors where it is cosy and warm, some have been venturing outside for walks.

Whether you enjoy a Sunday stroll, daily walks, or even are out walking your dog, a trustworthy puffer jacket to wear when braving the elements is a must.

There is one design in particular that has been a huge hit with shoppers - both male and female.

Online shopping platform Lyst, has released The Lyst Index, which is a breakdown of the most popular brands out of 12,000 labels, and in particular, the products, which have been highly sought after in the last quarter.

The North Face's 1996 Retro Nuptse Jacket was the most popular womenswear item over the last few months in 2020, and we predict it will continue to be a huge hit.  (Lyst)

The proof is also in the pudding. Over the last few months the 1996 Retro Nuptse Jacket has sold out on numerous occasions, and even now there are limited sizes, across all colours.

This design is a classic and ticks all the boxes. It is filled with goose down insulation to keep you warm, while the durable water repellent finish (DWR), as well as the packable hood, will keep you dry from the rain.

The bestseller boasts a boxy design that comes to the hips and a thick collar that fits snug around your neck for extra warmth.

It also features adjustable velcro cuffs on the sleeves, as well as an elasticated pull on the hem for the perfect fit and to prevent any cold creeping in to give you a chill.

The jacket has internal and side pockets, and a zip front fastening.

The outerwear item costs £250 from The North Face.
