Shirts and Sweaters
If you are looking for a shirt or jersey to go underneath the fleece, and gore-tex shell jacket, look no further than the Patagonia R1 Hoody.
For cold winter weather or cool spring weather you want a mid-layer shirt that can wick away moisture and is breathable. The Wild Things Power Stretch 1/4 zip hoody is American made in New Jersey and it should be your grab and go mid-layer for winter weather and for cooler spring / summer weather the stretchy Wild Things Power Stretch is more than ideal as an outer-layer to keep you warm and a bonus is that it is lightly windproof. Another bonus the hood keeps your head warm when you are losing too much heat through your head.
Going outside in cool weather? A warm breathable base layer is essential, and that makes the North Face Wool one piece a must in your closet.
