When the cold is upon us, a well-layered outfit is essential, and this is where you must not forget the mid-layer. When you wear an effective mid-layer, you get an insulating layer that helps regulate your body temperature, and, as with the base-layer, it comes in a myriad of different types of construction.
For your optimal performance, your clothing must provide you with the best support. With a mid-layer in the right materials, you're guaranteed freedom of movement and good breathability throughout your workout, so you won't feel clammy and cold. But which materials should you consider when selecting? Depending on whether you're skiing, hiking, or something else, it can provide special comfort to wear a mid-layer in the right material. Nature's very own insulation layer can be found in wool and merino wool. With temperature-regulating properties, a mid-layer in these materials ensures that sweat and condensation are wicked away naturally. As a bonus, wool is less likely than synthetic materials to exude the smell of sweat. A synthetic mid-layer, such as polyester or fleece, also offers good insulation, absorbs very little moisture, and dries very quickly. With our special focus on offering androgynous and sustainable designs that last season after season, you'll find a great selection of mid-layers at SOS.
