Waistcoats and gilets are an essential tool when it comes to layering and are extremely popular for outdoor use due to their versatility.
Quality waistcoats and gilets allow for freedom of movement while keeping your core warm. A waistcoat or gilet makes a great addition to a layering system. In mild weather, a waistcoat/gilet can be worn over a base layer for added warmth and in extreme cold, it can provide an extra insulating mid layer worn underneath a jacket.
