Sleek. That’s the best way to describe the Free Climb, a soft shell so finely tuned, you can barely see the seams or pockets. Made of Polartec Power Shield, the waterproof, windproof Free Climb can be worn solo on warmer days or layered under a jacket for extra protection when it’s cold. The best part: It’s plenty sharp enough for après-ski, too. $tk; thenorthface.com

The Shak is so aerodynamic, a speed-skater could wear it. Thanks to a low-profile hood that, when pulled up, leaves no bunching at the crown of the head, the Shak fits nicely underneath even a slim-fitting jacket. Made of 100 percent Merino wool, the sleeves also have tapered cuffs with thumb loops, so there’s no gapping where jacket meets glove. $140; ibex.com

Quick drying and breathable are the Meridian’s key words. Made from a polyester pique mesh, the Zip Tee is also cut to a trim fit, so it’ll slide comfortable over a base layer, as well as underneath a jacket—with plenty of room to move around. And the deep zipper lets you control the thermostat. $40; moonstone.com

The marriage of technical and feminine should be celebrated. Especially when they merge to create a functional women’s fleece that’s tapered to fit a curvier shape. The multi-fabric Tindur employs Polartec Wind Pro on the body of the jacket, Power Shield on the shoulders and arms, and Wind Pro Stretch on the side panels for maneuverability. In other words, the Tindur’s got you covered. $220; 66north.com

Once you put the Power Stretch on, you’ll want to curl up and take a nap in it. Made of Polartec Power Stretch, a body-hugging, four-way-stretching fabric is composed of two layers: The top is wind-resistant; the bottom is moisture-wicking. Together, they’re just plain comfy. Just take care not to fall asleep on the lift. $75; marmot.com

Under a shell, or even by itself on a spring afternoon, the women’s Rumor jacket is ready for takeoff. Its sleeves and balaclava-style speed hood are made of a thermodynamic fabric, while the jacket’s main body is a soft and durable stretch-fleece. The lining, a moisture-wicking polypropylene, keeps you dry underneath—no matter how hairy it gets underfoot. $99; orgear.com

Wear it as a base on warmer days or layer it when its storming, the Expedition should be in every skier’s closet. Its deep-neck zipper lets you ventilate at will, and with its high-density texturized weave, the Expedition is anti-microbial, so you never have to worry about odor. If only you had matching socks. $40; marmot.com

Made from merino wool, the women’s Quattro is lightweight, warm and breathable. And merino is anti-microbial, so odor isn’t a problem—not that ladies ever schvitz, of course. And while alpine-inspired piping on the arms will make you want to pair the Quattro with your favorite skin-tight stretch pants, the retractable thumb loop adds a modern—and functional—touch. $140; icebreaker.com
