Lincoln, New Hampshire, the heart of the White Mountains
"I was up in Lincoln and just happened to run across this store . .. ended up buying this mid layer. I wore it out of the store, and haven’t wanted to take it off since. It’s super warm and comfortable.” Neil S
“I used the Franconia as a mid/outer layer in 3 activities: hiking, skiing, running. Performed extremely well every time. Ventilating great at hiking . . . very warm and comfortable as a midlayer for skiing - allowing upper body movement and just tight enough in the hip area to prevent the cold getting in. Winter runner’s best friend.” Aljosa
"It is an amazing, comfortable, versatile piece that I have been wearing non-stop. Originally I bought it for cross country skiing and it’s great for that. But it is just so comfortable, breathable and warm... that I also wear it for lots of other things. I wore it on a long haul flight, I wore it running. I even wore it over a black cocktail dress... The only problem is finding a time to take it out of the rotation for washing. I need another one.” Andrea
The weather in the White Mountains changes all the time -- sometimes by the minute depending on where you are. The woods can be warm, the summits cold and whether you are on the north or south side of the mountain can make a huge difference. This calls for a mid layer that will keep you warm whether by itself or in combination with other layers. Requirements; warm, breathable, flexible, quick drying and of course, comfortable.
