Warm fleece where you need insulation, and breathability where you need to dump sweat, topped off with thermo-regulating technology that manages body temperature in quickly changing climates.
Outdoor Research says:
The Vigor Collection is your guaranteed ticket to layering intuitively and effectively for cold weather adventures. Thermo-regulating ActiveTemp™ works hand-in-hand with Vigor's grid fleece fabric, which wicks sweat and allows total breathability when you're gunning it uphill. Whether you're wearing it as a midlayer for sub-freezing days, or an outer layer for cool ski tours, take on each adventure with Vigor.
Outdoor Research's Vigor Quarter Zip Top is a pull-over version with the same comfy, stretchy fleece and some great technical features. The next to skin comfort is second to none.
The clever hybrid construction gives zones of greater breathability with the classic grid pattern on the back and under the arms. Elsewhere warmer though still really stretchy fabric is used giving you great thermo regulation. You get a single chest pocket and more of a close, athletic feel to the fit compared to the jacket version. Thumb loops keep the warmth in and keep the sleeves in place when layering.
