A coat for the coldest winter weather, a lightweight jacket for cool breezes or a compact waterproof. From here to your next adventure, Timbuktu’s coats and jackets range will cater for all weathers and all locations.

Down & Insulated Jackets

With our insulated coats, you’ll be able to handle anything winter can throw at you. Combining performance and style in each product, our lightweight and warm jackets are perfect for the mountains or cool days in the city.

Timbuktu down jackets - the Sankore and Nanga - feature a 90/10 Down fill, making them extremely warm and very lightweight, bringing an impressive warmth-to-weight ratio. Complementing the warmth is the stitched-through narrow baffle construction, which creates that classic “bubble” jacket style.

Each down jacket by Timbuktu features a ripstop outer fabric for more durability to ensure you can keep your adventures going without worrying about tears to your jacket. The lycra-bound elasticated hood provides a snug fit for protection and warmth against the harshest weather.

Our Tonka insulated jacket carries the same features as the Sankore and Nanga, only without the down insulation. Its main performance feature is the synthetic fill, which makes this jacket very warm in comparison to the weight and thickness.

Waterproof Jackets

A waterproof jacket is an essential item of clothing, either for heading into the hills, exploring the city or getting into work. Timbuktu’s waterproofs are lightweight and breathable, ensuring the ideal balance between style and function.

Timbuktu’s range of waterproof coats - which includes parkas and Harringtons - is mainly focused on the Kabara, Kende and Kita jackets. Each model features highly breathable fabric delivering performances of 10,000mm Hydrostatic Head and a MVTR of 20,000g/m2 per 24hrs. Each will keep you protected from the harshest of wet weather.

Our waterproof parka, the Zarho, carries the same two-layer waterproof and breathable fabric of the Kabara and Kende jackets, delivering comparable performances for Hydrostatic Head and MVTR. The Zarho is also insulated with a fleece lining and a synthetic fill to keep you comfortable and protected in cold weather.

Timbuktu’s Alatona Harrington jacket is water-resistant, so while complete wet weather protection is not guaranteed, light rain showers are nothing to worry about. Features include a drawcord hem, elasticated cuffs, and a chin guard on the main zip for extra comfort.

3-in-1 Jackets

These jackets are the best of everything, warmth and waterproof. The layers making up our 3-in-1 coats can be worn separately or together. Timbuktu’s 3-in-1 can be worn as either a waterproof jacket, a cosy fleece, or all combined.

Our Perala 3-in-1 jacket features fully waterproof and breathable fabric, boasting exceptional performance. The inner fleece is a well-crafted knitted marl keeping you both warm and stylish. A waterproof zip not only stops rain and wind from passing through but enhances its style.


A versatile piece of clothing that’s home when worn in the mountains or in the city. A fleece by Timbuktu is hard-wearing and warming. They can be worn either in a layering system or on their own as a stylish, lightweight top layer.

Our range of fleeces include the Gamba, hooded Douta and Rouko, as well as the Markala fleece gilet. Each is made from polyester and are full-zip designs for ease of use. Drawcords on the hems bring an enhanced fit which also adds to performance by stopping cold air from passing underneath.

On the Douta and Rouko pieces, the hood, while providing added warmth and protection from light rain, also doubles up as a style feature giving these fleeces a “hoodie” image. The Markala features a synthetic fill “puffer”-style insulation on the front and a crafted knitted fleece back.

Sweats & Hoodies

A hoodie is a staple part of any wardrobe from the countryside to the city, either as part of a layering system or on their own for a classic casual look. Each Timbuktu hoodie is of medium weight with subtle styling and a tailored fit.

Our hoodies include full-zip hoodies and the classic hoodie. Each is crafted from 100% cotton, or a 60-40 split when in our grey marl colourway, with a “fitted” design for trim and athletic look. Another feature includes a contrast embroidered chest logo for delicate styling.

Our new classics collection also features sweatshirts, including half-zip sweatshirts. Like our classic hoodie range, the sweatshirts are of a medium weight with ribbed cuffs, neck and hem for the perfect fit. Half-zip sweatshirts have subtle side pockets to warm your hands.

T-Shirts & Tops

You can never have enough tops and tees, they’re the basis of a layering system on cold weather or provide the classic look in summer with jeans. Each top is lightweight, soft to the touch and provides effortless style.

The cornerstone to modern, simple style, the Classic T-Shirt from Timbuktu is ideal for men and women. Available in a variety of colours, our tee is crafted from 100% cotton fabric that is soft and comfortable. Featuring a subtle tonal embroidered logo to the chest, the Classic T is a medium weight top, perfect as its own or part of a layering system.

Building on our Classic T-Shirt is Timbuktu’s Classic Logo T-Shirt. Still made from 100% cotton, this tee features a contrasting large printed logo across the chest. An alternate style to the Classic T is our Classic Boxy T-Shirt. Exclusive to women, the Boxy T-Shirt features a box-shaped fit that is slightly cropped in the body for modern styling.

Timbuktu’s long-sleeve top - the Classic Long-Sleeve T-Shirt - is made from 100% cotton that’s soft to the touch for easy style. The Classic Long-Sleeve features subtle branding with a tonal embroidered chest logo. The sleeves are cuffed to create a perfect fit and keep the garment looking smart. The top is of a medium weight, not too thin or thick for versatility.

Pelen & Askia Polygiene T-Shirt

Timbuktu's Pelen and Askia T-Shirts are a lightweight top crafted from “active” polyester fabric which prevents the formation of odour-causing bacteria. This active fabric has been combined with a subtle marl detail for understated styling details. This low-key and classy tee is ideal for layering, gym wear or summer outdoor activities.


Trousers are an important part of any outdoor pack, providing much-needed warmth or water-resistance against the elements. Utilising stretch fabric to deliver a high level of comfort and fit matches the Timbuktu mantra of fashion and functionality.

Our Koro and Nia trousers are ideal for whatever nature sends your way with water-resistant fabric complemented with an elasticated waist. Shaped knees aid comfort when moving while subtle contrast embroidered logos and enhanced storage options deliver our take on the classic walking trouser.
