A hybrid insulated mid-layer that is ideally suited to those needing to move fast over technical ground. The versatile piece is a fantastic all-rounder providing a balance of warmth, breathability and temperature control.

Mountain Equipment says

A hybrid insulated mid layer that is ideally suited to those needing to move fast over technical ground.

With its exceptional moisture transfer and high warmth-to-weight ratio, the POLARTEC® Alpha® core is the current state-of-the-art in breathable insulation. Allied to proven Pontetorto® Tecnostretch fleece, the Switch is an essential piece for active layering.

Our Verdict

Mountain Equipment's Women's Switch Insulated Jacket is a very technical jacket, the fabric down the front and back of the jacket offers good wind protection but it's also there protecting the Polartec Alpha insulation. This combo gives you some warmth, but it comes into it's own when you're really active in this piece. Polartec Alpha insulates but doesn't overheat you when you start to move.

This garment will provide similar levels of warmth as a lightweight micro fleece, but when you set off on your trek, climb, ride or whatever you're doing you won't need to take it off and pack it away, you should remain comfortable in it.
