Mid Layer

The mid layer is the second layer of clothing, worn under the first layer wind and weather protection.The main purpose of the mid layer is to provide insulation. The mid layer garment can be made of all different kinds of material. Tops and trousers made of synthetic fibres such as polyester fleece are the most suitable material for this layer, as this transports moisture outwards rapidly and its fibre structure preserves body heat well. Unlike natural fibres such as cotton or linen, the insulating properties are retained even when the material is wet, and synthetic fibres dry much more quickly.
