A Jane of all seasons.
Since Old Man Winter is somewhat prone to nondiscriminating bouts of snow, ice, warm, cold, and the much appreciated (though somewhat infrequent) bluebird day, the folks over at Mountain Standard crafted up the Women's Hybrid Insulator Jacket—a one-quiver insulation layer that caters to the planked, picked, perambulated, and occasional yard sale adventures. Built with a hardy ripstop body and 80 grams of PrimaLoft Gold synthetic insulation, this hoodie's construction keeps you warm even when wet while the Tough-face fleece side panels ensure ample breathability and mobility. After all, there's nothing quite as discomforting as the sensation of your interior layers boa-constricting your stomach and upper body post tomahawking down the hill. In addition to its versatility, the Hybrid Insulator is equipped with a fitted hood, multiple pockets, and stretchy cuffs that put the cherry atop your powder-hounding days.

- Q & A
Truly the best skiing mid layer I own
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: Medium
I wasn't really sure how to use this piece until I stuck it under a shell on a 20 degree ski day this weekend. This piece was absolutely perfect for this use and I will never leave home without it again
Super lightweight but nice and toasty.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
This jacket is stylish, very comfortable and warm. I've worn this jacket snowshoeing on a warmer day and it was too warm. I think it will be perfect for those colder days without having to add to many layers. It fits close so works best as an underlay. It is so comfortable you don't feel like you even have a jacket on. The only downside for me is the media pocket is too big for the iPhone6 in a lifeproof case. Otherwise I would have given it full stars; it's topnotch!
