This is minimalist insulation for when it’s important to stay warm and simultaneously dump heat. There are panels of PrimaLoft in a windproof shell on the front, whilst the back is constructed from quick-drying seamless material reminiscent of Odlo’s excellent base layers, being quick drying and stretchy. This hybrid construction makes this the ideal garment for speedy adventures, when wind resistance is needed at the front of the body, and breathability behind. Lightweight, slim fitting and beautifully cut, with superb freedom of movement, it is easy to forget you are wearing it. A zipped pocket with a headphone port secures valuables.
VERDICT: Excellent winter layer for high intensity activities.
BEST FOR: Running, mountain biking, and skinning uphill.
