Best Snowboard Mid Layers 2019-2020

Chosen by the Whitelines Test Team

UPDATE: Check out our reviews of the Best Snowboard Mid Layers for 2020/2021 by clicking here.

When winter turns to spring and the temperatures rise, there’s nothing better than ditching that jacket for a jumper. As we’ve come to appreciate the importance of a good mid layer, we also decided to list them in a category of their own.

How to choose a good mid layer then? Well it depends on what kind of mid layer you’re looking for. If you’re keen to find a good hoodie then you might want to choose one specifically made for riding. The riding specific hoodies tend to have a Cordura reinforcing across both the elbows and bum, so if you take a slam your hoodie won’t be soaking wet for the rest of the day (nothing worse than a cold, wet mid layer).

“Whether you were one to prefer a long cut riding hoodie or a more technically advanced down-layer, we’ve listed all the best options for you down below”

Sometimes it’s nice to have a proper element repellent mid layer to keep out the wind and cold. Ideally, a thin puff jacket that you can carry around in your backpack without it taking heaps of space and weighing a ton. If it’s tech that you’re looking for then we’d suggest you’d have a look at Patagonia’s Macro Puff. This thing is new for the 2019/20 season, and is incredibly warm and just ahead of it’s time in many other ways too.

In the end it comes down to whatever floats your boat. Whether you were one to prefer a long cut riding hoodie or a more technically advanced down-layer, we’ve listed all the best options for you down below. Make sure to have a look at our best base layers and outerwear too if you’re lacking a decent set up for this season.

It’s ultra-durable as well, with Cordura reinforcing across the elbows and bum, so feel free to go HAM when wearing it.

    It’s slightly longer fitting to cover your butt, but not veering into XXXL tall tee $kier $wag territory. The zippered kangaroo pouch pocket at the front has an extra stash pocket, which is Velcro secured to keep your goodies safe.
