Best Heavy Midlayer that I've used
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: large
So... I've used another piece that is similar from a brand that everyone and their brother are wearing now.... What I like about this piece is that it seems to have a broader temperature range than most. I think it's because of a looser knit outer shell that lets the moisture out. Under the arms, there is a loose stretch fabric, but the whole jacket uses a breathable fabric. I would describe this as a purpose-built heavy midlayer. It may not have the techy-looking fabric, but it also doesn't feel as sweaty. Keeps me warm on the lift and stays dry when I'm skiing down. Also moves well under a shell.
