Magic - Great fabric, ingenious versatile hood, doubles as lightweight mid-layer.

Tragic - Hood can get in the way when not being used.

In A Nutshell Mountain Equipment's super technical winter baselayer come lightweight mid-layer uses a brilliant, stretchy, micro-gridded Italian fleece for a close fit and great insulation for the weight then plays a killer trump card with a versatile hood that'll sit over or under a helmet, cover the lower face completely in a Buff style and double as a night-time warmer too. Not cheap, but a superbly versatile bit of winter kit that can do the mid-layer gig all year round. Works well over a thin, high-wicking tee. Also available without a hood.

Good For Cold conditions technical use where the hood really comes into its own.
