Our favourite midlayers

ARCTERYX-Cerium-SL-Jacket-W-Ruby-Sunrise1. ARC’TERYX
CERIUM SL JACKET

£250 

It’s the lightest down piece in the Cerium collection. How light? It weighs in at just 185g – about the weight of an apple. It is filled with 850 white goose down and features Down Composite Mapping technology or – in layman’s terms – strategically placed synthetic insulation in areas most prone to moisture. The face fabric has a durable water repellent (DWR) finish to repel moisture, while elasticised cuffs and hem seal out drafts. Available in men’s and women’s versions. 

EIDER Yomba Light Jkt - men - Fiery Moab2. EIDER
YOMBA LIGHT
£180

A super-durable jacket made from down and ultra-light ripstop fabric for high resistance to tears and abrasion. It has a zipped front opening and zipped hand pockets and adjustable hem with drawcords.

Haglofs_FW14_ActivesWarmIIHood3. HÄGLOFS
ACTIVES WARM II HOOD
£120

The clue is in the name. It’s made with an extra warm merino wool/synthetic mix with a snug hood to help keep frostbite at bay on the nippiest of summits. Stretch fabric allows maximum movement. 

AW144. HELLY HANSEN
SKI THERMAL PRO JACKET
£100

This ski fleece provides both insulation and breathability thanks to the use of high-loft Polartec Thermal Pro. Specs include side and underside sleeve reinforcement panels, raised wind-blocking collar and bottom hem adjustment. It works well as a midlayer for colder days, or as a standalone piece for spring days on the mountain.

Mammut Broad_Peak_Hoody_JA_dark_space_bild15. MAMMUT
BROAD PEAK HOODY MEN
£210

A great-looking jacket that combines 125g 90/10 goose down with a water-resistant outer material. It features three good-sized pockets, an adjustable drawcord hem and down-filled fixed hood. Ideal as a midwinter midlayer or standalone jacket. 

73540_2740_isotherm_hdy 00216. MARMOT 
Isotherm hoody
£110

Hailed as ‘active insulation’, Marmot’s award-winning Isotherm Hoody is ideal for backcountry forays. It’s made with an abrasion-resistant Pertex Quantum face and lined with hyper-breathable mesh. Reinforced softshell shoulders, an attached hood and free-moving fit complete the package. 

Patagonia W Hybrid Fleece Jacket7. PATAGONIA
HYBRID DOWN FLEECE JACKET
£160

Looking for a lightweight and packable layer to store in your pack as you head into the backcountry? The new Hybrid Down Fleece Jacket ticks both boxes, and pairs two weights of snow-shedding fleece for warmth, breathability and stretch where you need it most. Slightly longer in length and with a relaxed fit, it’s the perfect low-bulk midlayer. 

Scott Kickstart Jacket8. SCOTT
KICKSTART JACKET
£180

Redesigned for more warmth, Scotts new Kickstart Jacket keeps you drier for longer with 650 water resistant fill. Extremely light and packable, it features a new fixed hood, internal security pocket, handwarmer pockets and an adjustable hem. 

SMARTWOOL SP234-526-1-p9. SMARTWOOL 
PHD SMARTLOFT DIVIDE HOODY
£210

Another ISPO award winner here. It’s made with über-lightweight SmartLoft wool insulation, providing ultimate thermo regulation even when wet. Strategically placed SmartLoft insulation HyFi knit panels and wind-resistant nylon provides breathability and protection from the elements, while a DWR finish keeps you dry. Available in mens and womens versions. 

TNF THERMOBALL HOODIE_MONTEREY BLUE10. THE NORTH FACE 
THERMOBALL HOODIE

£170

We’re big fans of TNF’s Thermoball insulation technology. It is comparable to 600 fill power down for weight and packability but dries quickly and, most vitally, remains effective when wet. Hurrah! Perfect for spring skiing and backcountry exploits. Check out the full range of hoodies, jackets and vests.
