Men's Mid Layer Coats
About Men’s Mid Layer JacketsPrioritizing lightweight and breathable function, mid layer jackets are perfect for standalone use in mild weather, or for supplementing your more extreme winter apparel.
Midlayer Jacket: Worn for Sports and All-Weather ConditionsEvery outdoorsman knows the importance of layers. Novice adventurers throw on a single coat, jump into the wilderness, and expect the best results. Far too often, this leads to discomfort when the jacket’s insulation either underperforms or results in overheating. One of the most adaptable products that you can add to your outdoor wardrobe is a versatile midlayer jacket. These light weight coats are perfect for a variety of circumstances and give you ultimate control over your body heat regulation.
Used as a standalone jacket, these coats are a bit heavier than thin underlayers, giving you warmth and protection in mildly cold temperatures. Perfect for the unpredictable shoulder seasons of fall and spring, the synthetic insulation provided by these coats will keep you comfortable in nippy conditions. Even with the warmth they provide, you’ll still be able to move around easily. Middlayer ...jackets are never bulky, making their tight-fitting nature perfect for athletic endeavors like cross country skiing.
Layer Up Against Harsh Conditions With Fleece JacketsA significant advantage of a midlayer fleece jacket is that it can be worn underneath your thicker layers for maximum protection against the elements. Even on the coldest days of winter, you can endure the freezing temperatures like it’s nobody's business. Thermal fabric keeps all of your natural body heat in, while still promoting breathability against perspiration. The moisture venting properties of a mid layer vest or jacket help to keep you dry while never sacrificing heat retention.
This combination of insulation and breathability is ideal for winter sports in subfreezing temperatures. Whether you’re skiing a frigid powder day or hiking your favorite glacier, a men’s mid layer jacket gives you the durable, protective layering you need.
