Westcombs Cayoosh Light Hoody is a little out of the realm with what I'd normally choose for a mid layer, mostly because of the "hoody" part, but this jacket quickly cast away any questions about a hoody on a midlayer. 



With the Hypo-allergenic Hutterite goose down fill, and Polartec WindPro fabric, the Cayoosh is lightweight and easy to fit under your favorite shell, or to wear on its own, for optimal warmth and wind protection. 

The soft side panels give it a nice fit that allow it to move with you when you're doing what you love to do.  


I was a little perplexed that the two front pockets don't have closures, however they are plenty deep to contain a few bare essentials. 

The  Cayoosh Light, is warm, lightweight, and extremely comfortable for a day on the slopes or for apres' ski.


Edit:  I skied Northstar today after a damp storm blew through.  Winds up top were sporadic and unfriendly, but the Cayoosh's Down fill was cozy warm.  I pulled the hood over my helmet for a bit to stop the wind from going down my neck, which fit nicely and helped me ski longer into the day.  Big thumbs up for the Cayoosh!
