I love cold weather, snow and walking my dog In the elements. I have experimented for years utilizing various types of outerwear and layering systems. I recently became acquainted with Beyond Clothings Axios system and, after reading reviews on other sites indicating the quality of materials and high functionalities of the system, decided to give it a try. I purchased the A3 sweater and the A 4 wind shirt. After studying the recommendation for use, I tried a base layer of a quality polypropylene waffle weave long underwear. On top of that, a crye precision G3 battle shirt. Then the A 3 sweater followed by the A 4 wind shirt. I was able to walk in 15ﾟ weather with wind and snow and felt nice and warm for an entire mile. Walking without bulkiness and no chill at all was a dream come true. I am now adding the A5 cadre jacket for even colder weather and static conditions. I'm also getting ready to pull the trigger on the A 6 rain jacket. The system works so well together that I would give it 6 stars if I could.
Excellent mid layer for active use.
