Why we chose the Planks Free Peaks Mid Layer: Slick looks, warm, packable
The Planks Free Peaks Midlayer has been designed to keep you warm as a mid-layer, on those cold winter days, and has enough style to be worn by itself for the good weather shred. Hell, it’ll take you straight to après (and even further into the night) if that’s what you desire.
Having witnessed half of the Planks team wearing this jacket day-in-day-out, it can only mean one thing: it’s a seriously decent bit of kit. Of course, that’s the least we expect these days when it’s a product from our pals at Planks.
I’ll let you into a little secret. The Free Peaks is actually my favourite jacket to take off the back of a chair from fellow ski pal, and almost-legendary Planks rider, Chris McCormick. With my hands-on experience considered gospel, I can confirm that you’ll never get cold. Also, just wait until you tell those envious souls looking your way that the jacket is made from recycled materials and packed full of 100 grams of insulation.
