If you’re like us, you’re already actively willing the onset of summer’s full warmth by shivering on patios after sunset and jumping into still-cold lakes in cottage country. But a smarter choice might be to rely on layering pieces to get you through the transition weather.

Canada Goose’s midweight WindBridge knits are one option for staying warm during the in-between seasons. Lined with soft merino wool, these zip-up knits feature Thermal Mapping ™ technology under the arms and along the upper back, which promotes breathability and ventilation. The women’s knit has a reinforced collar, while men’s styles come with either the collar or a nylon hood. All knits have wind-resistant panels that keep your core warm when the temps drop.

It’s an investment piece, but one that will carry you through the chilly spring evenings. Plus, it’s a handy item to pack for multi-stop journeys with varying climates or anytime the weather is going to be unpredictable.
