The perfect midlayer is the one that does exactly what you need it to do.
These are four of our favorite ski sweaters, light puffy jackets, and generally awesome insulating layers for the ski season.
Obermeyer Tera Sweater
What looks like a classic ski sweater but boasts the technology of a newfangled midlayer? The Tera, perhaps the most comfortable, versatile ski sweater on the market today. This half-zip is 100 percent nylon with durable woven shoulder panels to protect high-wear spots and a useful zippered sleeve pocket for hidden storage. No matter how many fancy midlayers you have stacked in your drawer, you’ll reach for this one. [$169, obermeyer.com]
