Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Grams in your layer

Hi All.

There are some good bits of kit on sale on SP just now, including range if layers with different amounts of fill.

EG 200g primaloft, another with 130 body and 80 arms and another with primaloft 100.

I will be using a single wick layer (smart wool or Haglofs) and a Haglofs vortex jacket. (this is fine for spring in Scotland) However, what would you recommend as a filling grade for an intermediate layer. EG in the S11BB

By intermediate do you mean 'mid layer'? Cos in that case I wouldn't recommend down or microfibre at all. A decent fleece will last longer, dry quicker, breathe better, probably be cheaper and unless you're going somewhere very cold indeed by entirely fine for the conditions.

If you're dead set on it, the lightest fill weight on offer is probably the way to go... generally 60gsm. It is mostly what you get in low-profile microbaffled tops like the nanopuff anyway.

Heavier weights will be very warm and quite puffy, so they won't make good midlayers at all.

I will say that lightweight insulated tops make excellent overlayers, something to stick on top of your shell if it is super cold, or you're having a rest stop outdoors. They weigh less and pack down smaller than the equivalent fleece, so they're good things to have in your rucksack if you're touring or doing a long day away from the lifts. Not really worth it if you're spending all day within a few pistes of a bar, though.
