Eberlestock Layering System
Designed to keep you warm, manage moisture, and protect you from exposure to the elements.
Consists of 3 discrete layers of apparel, each with a specific function.
Separate layering allows you to adapt your clothing to suit both the weather conditions and the activity level.
The foundation which starts the heat generation and moisture transport process. This is the wicking layer which transports away moisture from the skin and helps regulate body temperature. Sweat passes into the next layer of clothing so the base stays dry.
The baselayer is one of the most integral pieces of clothing, forming the key foundation of the layering system and enabling you to stay warm and dry. This layer is worn next-to-skin, creating a thin layer of warm air against the body. It helps to transport moisture and sweat vapor from the skin to regulate the body’s temperature.
Our ultralight baselayers combine the excellent antimicrobial properties of Merino Wool with the quick-drying and 4-way stretch of synthetic fabrics. In our midweight baselayers, our proprietary HexWeave™ gridded fleece adds engineered air channels to both trap heat and wick moisture away from the body.
Midlayer garments have insulating properties which trap the warmth generated by the body. This layer is worn over the baselayer to help trap in body heat, as well as further transporting sweat away from the body to keep you warm and dry.
A versatile layer, with different types of insulation and moisture transport technology: waterproof down or loft insulation, high-pile fleece, specialized quilted panels, DWR-treated shells and more. In some instances, our versatile midlayers could also act as the outerlayer, depending on weather conditions.
This protective layer is crucial for protection against the elements, including wind, rain and snow. This “working layer” provides elemental protection, allows for ventilation and heat management, and is the final stage of moisture transport to move water out of your system to get you dry. There are different types of protective layers. For example, a waterproof jacket for rain or an insulated softshell jacket for protection against cold.
Two things to consider and plan for when selecting your apparel: Level of Activity and Weather Conditions.
Level of Activity
High Intensity Activities will generate body heat and sweat, so it’s necessary to wear clothing that is breathable, moisture-wicking, and has good temperature regulation properties. Over-layering will introduce too much heat and moisture into your system, and can cause problems later on. For a high intensity activity, like a high-altitude hike into elk territory, starting with a light baselayer, a versatile midlayer like a vest and a softshell outer layer stowed in your pack is a good strategy.
Low Intensity Activities, like glassing and or treestand hunting often require more insulation and weather protection to retain heat during the long static periods.
Often, a hunt will consist of both types of these activities. Planning ahead, wearing the best layering setup to start and having packed other options to maintain heat and keep dry is critical. An old adage, “Start Cold” refers to starting with lighter layers, allowing the activity to build heat and ensuring sweat is being wicked away and evaporated to make temperature regulation easier and more comfortable overall for the long haul.
Level of activity is a good starting point when choosing appropriate layers, but weather conditions and temperature are also very important to consider. Weather conditions can be unpredictable, which is why it’s helpful to bring additional layers with you so you can remove or swap pieces to change the dynamic of your layering system.
Extreme cold conditions will often dictate a warmer, thicker baselayer and more insulation for your midlayer, whereas wet and windy conditions will often require a hardshell to seal out the external moisture while still offering some breathability.
Conversely hot weather conditions often require deliberate selection of layers to cover skin, prevent moisture loss but wick sweat, and cover skin from exposure, while helping regulate temperature via evaporative cooling.
UPF protection is also a key factor to consider, and some hybrid layers (baselayer/outerlayer) like our Bruneau Hoodie offer wicking, wind protection and UV protection as well.
Wet/Cold environments are the most dangerous, as they rob the body of heat via conduction, convection and evaporation. Waterproof hardshells and wicking inner layers are key to managing moisture and preserving core body temperature.
I've only had it for the summer, but it has been a go to if I'm in the sun all day!!
So far I’ve really been diggin it a it will be a staple in my early season gear kit.
The first thing I did was check to see if it was water repellent... Definitely was not disappointed. Eberlestock really knows what they are doing.
I remember being on the fence when first making this purchase. I think the reason I originally ordered one of these was to get over a certain dollar amount for free shipping and it was on sale. The first use was a paddle in camping trip in Nothern Wisconsin. The mosquitos were insane this year. This hoodie was worth its weight in gold on the portage trails and while cleaning fish! It's not too hot while working hard and acts like armor. I ended up wearing it all day every day, cool mornings and evenings at camp and out on the water in the heat of the sun. That pattern repeated itself on the next two trips, with the only difference being I had it on the way out of the house, not in the pack! I'm a function over fashion guy and honestly thought this might be a bit of a goofy looking shirt. It turns out my wife REALLY likes the way it looks on me so that's a nice, unexpected bonus. I LOVE this hoody! I already received my second one in a camo pattern for early fall bow hunts. I'm especially excited to have this for late spring turkey seasons. It's one of those great additions to the lineup that I had no idea what I was missing. Well worth the price!!!
I love this hoodie! I have six of them. They breathe well and protect you from the sun. I also like how light weight they are. The only thing I wish it had is an elastic at the end of the sleeve to the excess up when not using the thumb hole.
Wore this for my Oryx hunt paired with matching pants. Can’t say enough about the comfort, and its ability to be warm when brisk, but cool when hot. I use the hoodie often to avoid the sun. Camo blended perfect into the New Mexico brush hunting Oryx. Started with their packs and now an Eberlestock believer. Looking forward to more products.
I was expecting for an All season hoody to be a little warmer. This really feels like a summer weight hoody to keep you dry. Unlined, it more closely resembles a shell than a hoody.
With that being said, as with all Eberlestock products, the build quality is excellent. Living on the western slope of Colorado, I know that I will get some great usage out of this hoody.

Super lightweight and extremely comfortable. I got one just for every day use and will definitely be getting more for hunting season
Love this product. I got my first one through a hunting event and had to buy a second. I wear these for everything outdoors and for travel. Light and comfortable. I get them a size larger to help conceal and also works well when layering. Highly recommend!
