Fleece tops and soft shell jackets that can stand up to the cold while venting the heat you don’t want.
TO CALL THIS COLLECTION of zingy jumpers and jackets ‘mid layers’ is a bit of an industry misnomer. They’re called that to differentiate them from hard shell outer layers – waterproof jackets and insulators. But does that mean you’ll only ever wear these in the middle of two other layers? Does it heck: we’ve cheerfully gone for miles wearing these tops as an outer layer – mainly days when it’s chilly, but not freezing, and not too wet either. It’s only in the coldest and wettest conditions when they become ‘mid layers’. So in fact, with the addition of one little letter, you can find a more apt name for these things… … mild layers. We’re thinking of copyrighting it.
