The insulation layer series for men has been created to keep you warm and comfortable. Our Penguin crew tested all our snowboard and ski mid layers, composed of three innovative fabrics.

S.Café Marl Fleece Mid Layer Hoodie

This S.Café fleece mid layer hoodie is made of a special 2-tone material that dries very quickly. The polyester yarn was further enriched with coffee grounds which, in addition to the ecological aspect, also acts as a neutralizing agent. The soft brushed inside and the stretchability of the material provide a very pleasant wearing comfort. The mid layer fleece is ideally worn as an insulation layer between underwear and shell, depending on temperature and personal need.

Exist in the following colors :

S.Café Stretch Fleece 
Insulation Hoodie

This S.Café mid-layer fleece hoodie is made from a stretchy and fast-drying textile. The polyester yarn is also enriched with coffee grounds, which has an odor-neutralizing effect in addition to the ecological aspect. The soft brushed inside makes it very comfortable to wear. The fleece is ideally worn as an insulation layer between underwear and shell, depending on temperature and need. A ski mid layer that is ideal for stowing in a daypack.


Why the S Café mid layer ?

Penguin new fabric technology

Made out of coffee grounds

The S Café fabric is actually made of residues of coffee grounds

Fast drying mid layer fabric

S Café fibers are drying fast, preventing sweat from accumulating between layers


Made out of coffee grounds and requiring lower energy than other fabrics

Bamboo-Charcoal Fleece Mid Layer Hoodie

This comfortably stretchable hoodie has been designed for additional insulation. Made of soft polyester fleece, with a high neck. The finely brushed interior provides pleasant warmth. Further details such as the full zipper with an inner wind flap, raglan sleeves for comfort, large pockets with zipper closure, as well as a powder mask integrated into the hood add to the product's technical finesse. The product is made of a sustainable fabric, which consists of a bamboo charcoal enriched polyester yarn.

Pinneco/Bamboo Hybrid Mid Layer Hoodie

This hybrid mid-layer fleece jacket is an ideal combination of our warm Pinneco® insulation padding with the functional and stretchable bamboo charcoal fleece. This special mid layer consists of two different insulation materials on the core of your body and on the limb. To keep the core warm, we have insulated this part with our Pinneco Mantle Super Stretch material, while the arms and the hood are made with the Bamboo-Charcoal fleece.

Exist in the following colors: 

Pinneco Mid Layer Jacket 

The flexible Pinneco® Mantle Super Stretch padding, which has been processed into this jacket, supports the interaction with the stretchable inner and outer fabric and gives the wearer optimum freedom of movement. The jacket can be worn as an intermediate layer underneath, or on a dry day also as an outer jacket.

Pinneco Mid Layer Underwear Short

Another insulation highlight for the colder days is our “easy-on-easy-off” insulation short. This is a loyal companion on backcountry expeditions. Due to the two zipper closure, this short can be pulled on and off without having to remove the shoes.

We've used the flexible Pinneco® insulation on the front and the back, adding more stretchy fleece inserts to the sides for freedom of movement.

How to pick the best insulation  layer?

From mid-layer fleece to Pinneco insulation layers, the choice for a Penguin ski mid layer is broad. It all depends on the level of insulation you would like, all year long. Ask yourself. What type of neck? What level of warmth? All our snowboard and ski mid layers are made of Pinneco, S. Café or Hybrid  fibers to provide a freedom of movement, but also prevent sweat and neutralize bad smells.
