The Caliber is a very breathable mid layer cardigan style sweater that is quick drying and moisture wicking. The sweater has 2 hand pockets with breathable lining and one small laminated sleeve pocket which is nicely sized for tickets, hotel room cards or credit cards. This is not the solution to keeping you warm in cold weather but if you’re looking for a light fleece for spring or autumn conditions then the Caliber Cardigan is a great choice.
Once again I stress the fact that dressing in layers is the ideal way to maintain body temperature. When working in cooler or cold conditions like in Canada or Iceland the temperature will drastically change during the course of a day and by being able to add and remove layers will allow me to stay warm, dry, and comfortable. I want my clothes to look good but I also need them to be very practical and Arc’Teryx makes this easy for me with solutions for all kinds of climates and temperatures.
By adding the Caliber under an Atom hoody, I’m kept very warm and as a bonus these items are incredibly light and flexible making it easy for me to remain very mobile even while wearing a heavy pack. If you’re looking for a heavier and warmer version of this cardigan, I’d suggest looking at the Covert.
