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.
