Our take Tired of playing the on-once more, off-once more game with your puffy? This lightweight, breathable piece from Sierra Styles is good for dealing with temp swings. Thin fleece side panels below the arms dump heat, when synthetic PrimaLoft Silver insulation everywhere else supplies sufficient warmth for shoulder season when worn alone or colder climate as aspect of a layering technique. One particular tester, who wore the Tuolumne Sweater in the course of a 4-day trip in Wyoming’s Wind River Variety, reports that it kept him warm more than a light baselayer down to 45°F, but also wasn’t as well stuffy on rigorous hikes when temps rose into the 60s.
The specifics The Tuolumne Sweater stuffs into its personal pocket for storage, and packs down to the size of a soda can. Two zippered hand pockets can every hold a pair of light gloves, when an unzippered interior pocket is a very good spot to stash snacks.
Trail cred “The 30-denier polyester outer fabric has held up so properly this has come to be my preferred year-round layer,” our tester says.
