Mid Layer

The function of the mid layer is primarily to provide insulation. A mid layer will direct any body heat that your base layer didn’t retain back into your body and help stop cold air passing through to your body.

A good mid layer will be breathable and also wick any moisture away from the body so any moisture trapped by the base layer is transported out to be evaporated.

Micro-fleeces, merino wool tops, soft shells and thin insulated jackets are popular mid layers. However Forcefield utilise the "Defender" windproof fabric in our Tornado Mid Layers. This gives a critically windproof garment that is thin, light, comfortable and offers unmatched performance

Tornado Windproof Shirt
The Forcefield Tornado Advance Shirt offers the best possible protection against extreme weather. Windproof, thermal, anti-bacterial, light, fast drying - keeps you comfortable even when wet! Now in a fresh new colour-way and improved fit.

Tornado Advance is a range that keeps the wind out, and has thermal properties - the perfect combination as a mid layer.

Our Defender fabric (forward facing) is wind-proof, water resistant and breathable, it has a water-resistant rating of 8000mm, so will help keep you dry should your outer jacket let in water. Defender material also benefits from having a micro fleece lining. The material we use to complement Defender is Thermolite. Thermal and breathable even when wet, Thermolite® fabric is made with engineered hollow-core fibres that trap air for greater insulation and dries 20% faster than other thermal material and 50% faster than cotton. Thermolite® is also anti-bacterial stopping the development of bacteria caused by perspiration, both with little weight, no bulk, and a soft feel.  

Every aspect for a high performing, mid layer garment has been thought of. This product range has evolved over a 10 year period.

Tornado Advance works best when used in conjunction with the Forcefield Technical Base Layer range of product, creating the most efficient layering clothing system.
