Midlayer
Cloudveil Traverse Hoodie

"This fleece actually made me look forward to cold weather," said our Colorado tester, who reported that this low-bulk, lightweight layer slid unobtrusively under a shell and kept her warmer than many heavier tops. Though not windproof, the Polartec 100 fleece repels most chill breezes, and the hood provides an instant warmth boost (bonus: no fumbling for a hat). Seams placed well away from pack straps kept testers chafe-free on long days, and the embroidered design on one arm lends this layering workhorse a playful flourish. $90; 8 oz. (M); XS-XL. cloudveil.com. Reader service #123
