With the Spring thaw setting in, it's time to put away the sweaters and thick winter coats and start thinking about lighter layers for the warmer months and bright, sunny days.

Fortunately light to mid-weight layers abound in the upcoming catalogs of brands like Arc'teryxIcebreaker, and Under Armour.

For employees who need a nice, light base layer, look no further than Icebreaker's Techlite short sleeve polo. Like most Icebreaker products, this breathable, odor-resistant layer is made from Merino wool -- with a little bit of nylon for added reinforcement. Available for both men and women, this stretchy layer is the perfect incentive gift for looking good and feeling great.

If you need something a little heavier, the Quantum LS Zip Hood remains one of Icebreaker's best-selling midweight layers. This fantastic hoodie is sleek, slim, and wicks moisture yet provides all the warmth you'll need on a breezy spring day that has just a hint of winter. It has ventilated panels to dry off sweat and is form-fitting to ensure maximum mobility.

Then there's Under Armour's Storm Armour fleece hoodie. Designed with a fuller cut, the Storm Armour hoodie is meant to repel water while maintaining full breathability. It also has a cozy and soft interior designed to keep its wearer snug and warm.

Under Armour also has a generously-cut performance polo. Four-way construction lets the shirt stretch in all directions, and its polyester material wicks sweat and dries quickly. And unlike most polyester products, the performance polo is coated with an anti-odor technology to keep the item smelling fresh.

Another source of great layers is premium outdoor company Arc'teryx. Its most popular products are the Atom LT Jackets, an insulated mid-layer that's both wind and moisture resistant. It's also lightweight, with a minimalist design, and highly packable. If it does soak through, the insulation is designed to dry quickly and retain its warmth even when wet.
