What is a mid layer?
A mid layer is the ‘intermediate layer’ of choice for many skiers and snowboarders. Many winter sports enthusiasts wear three layers when they’re out on the slopes – the base layer is the thermal clothing, the outer layer is the jacket, and in between you have the mid layer. Simple. Mid layers are also often called ski sweaters; so a mid layer is just a sweater (or zip up) that you can wear when you go skiing or snowboarding.

Why wear a mid layer and not a normal sweater when you’re out on the slopes?
Mid layers look a lot like normal sweaters, but there are some important differences. One of the key characteristics of mid layers is the material they’re made of. Our mid layers are made of special fabrics that are suitable for intensive activities in cold environments. This means that mid layers are both warm and breathable at the same time – so you’re protected from the cold and you won’t overheat when you’re conquering the slopes. Many of our mid layers also have a 1/4 zip on the front. You can open this zip when you want to cool off quickly while skiing or snowboarding. Mid layers are also great for après ski! All our mid layers that have a 1/4 zip also feature a chin guard. A chin guard is a piece of fabric that is attached at the top of the zip. This protects your chin from being scratched by the zip, eliminating the risk of skin irritation. And – you guessed it – you won’t find these extra features on a normal sweater. So, always go for a mid layer (or ski sweater) instead of a normal sweater when you hit the slopes!

Different materials
Our women’s mid layers are made of high-quality polyester. Polyester is strong and it retains its shape, so you can always rely on the quality of our mid layers. Mid layers made of 100% polyester are called fleece mid layers. Fleece is wonderfully soft and warm but less stretchy due to the lack of elastane. We sometimes use elastane in our mid layers. Elastane is well-known for its stretchability, which makes the mid layer even more suitable for active sports like skiing and snowboarding.
