Now a Permanent Piece of the Gear List

My wife bought me this for a winter layer, for skiing and snowshoeing, and it’s perfect! Just thick enough as a layer to wear above a base layer, and thin enough to wear under a shell without overheating. I was impressed at how warm this was just wearing this over the base layer while gearing up for an alpine tour, at 10°F, but it was very breathable for both the uphill and the downhill under the shell. The hood and built-in face cover are nicely designed. And it’s very comfortable! Well done Burgeon!

New go to!

The Franconia is my new favorite top layer! Comfortable, warm, breathable, and I love that it’s a little longer at the bottom. The built in face mask and thumb holes on the sleeves are awesome features as well!

Terrific Insulation Layer

Went looking for the right winter hiking insulation layer after getting some guidance from a guide. Love Burgeon gear and this one has performed beyond my expectations.


This is my favorite mid layer, it is soft, warm and very stretchy. The hood fits very well and fits under a ski helmet and the face mask built into the hood is great.

It's ok

A little disappointed for $179. I have a bunch of Burgeon articles of clothing and mostly happy, but the value of the Franconia is not quite there. The fit isn't great and I was surprised there were no side pockets. The quality is excellent and I suspect it can be a great layer, but again for $179 I expected much more.
