THE WORK­HORSES OF ALL GOOD LAY­ER­ING SYS­TEMS.

Skiing - - “all I Have To Say: Meh.” -

1 > SALOMON

SOULQUEST BC IN­SU­LATED MID­LAYER By us­ing syn­thetic in­su­la­tion in the chest, back, and arms, and a stretchy and ul­tra-breath­able ma­te­rial along the flanks and un­der­arms, Salomon has cre­ated a fan­tas­tic mid­layer for in- and out-of-bounds ski­ing. Pair it with a good shell and you have a lay­er­ing sys­tem that’s ready to take on the unfriendly as­pects of na­ture. [$225]

4 > SCOTT

NINE9 JACKET “Dressed to the nines” means über-fash­ion­able, but dressed in Scott’s Nine9 means you’ve got a stylish layer for tour­ing, ski­ing, or hang­ing out on or off the hill. Soft, wash­able merino wool and a poly-knit blend in the shell and lin­ing lend anti-odor and mois­ture-wick­ing prop­er­ties to this form-fit­ting layer. Jack­et­like de­tails in­clude a zip front, a sub­stan­tial col­lar, and chest and hand pock­ets. [$200]

2 > ED­DIE BAUER

IGNITELITE RE­VERSIBLE PULLOVER Ver­sa­til­ity is this mid­layer’s call­ing card. On the slopes, en­joy the warm embrace of Pri­maLoft in­su­la­tion. While at après, take ad­van­tage of the clas­sic down-sweater styling. For the evening fes­tiv­i­ties, flip it inside out for a high-vis­i­bil­ity jacket to throw over your party duds with enough DWR coat­ing to de­fend against a light pre­cip. [$149]

5 > PATAG­O­NIA

DOWN JACKET Patag­o­nia’s pair­ing of 100 per­cent re­cy­cled Po­lartec Ther­mal Pro with 54 per­cent re­cy­cled Po­lartec Power Stretch is a combo as great as kale and ba­con. The mul­ti­ple weights of fleece add stretch, breatha­bil­ity, and warmth, and it can dou­ble as a stand-alone jacket or a lay­er­ing piece. Look for the long fit, zip­pered hand-warmer pock­ets, and fun, quilted pat­tern. [$199]

WOMEN’S HY­BRID WIN­TER BULL­WHEEL JACKET De­signed like a tra­di­tional plaid shirt, in­su­lated like a fully func­tional mid­layer, and fin­ished with a durable wa­ter-re­pel­lent coat­ing, the Bull­wheel tran­si­tions seam­lessly from the gnar to the bar. It can be worn un­der a shell or alone as a jacket on warmer days, and it’s al­ways ap­pro­pri­ate at après. [$175]

6 > SMART­WOOL

PHD SMARTLOFT DI­VIDE HOODY SPORT JACKET A smart choice for aer­o­bic junkies or layer lovers, this form­fit­ting mid­layer or light jacket com­bines a DWR-treated, quilted ny­lon face with in­su­lat­ing wool. A merino jersey knit adorns the sleeves, back, and col­lar for a soft feel. The scal­loped waist cinches to cover kid­neys. The in­su­lated hood fits snugly un­der a hel­met, and the sleeves have thumb holes. [$260]
