Layer 1 - Baselayer

– The garment you wear closest to your body, such as baselayers, underwear or socks. When it comes to baselayers, it's primary job is to help wick moisture away and keep you warm regardless on what temperature you are in.

Think of:

Avoid:

Layer 2 - Midlayer

– Layer 2 is worn between the inner layer and the protective shell layer. The perfect midlayer transports the moisture further away from layer 1 while keeping the body heat so you wont get cold.

Think of:
icon-checkmark.svg The insulation of the midlayer comes from the air that the material contains.
icon-checkmark.svg In cold weather - use double midlayers.
icon-checkmark.svg In warmer weather - use a thinner midlayer.
icon-checkmark.svg Can be used as a lighter jacket.
icon-checkmark.svg Adjust layer 2 according to temperature and activity.
icon-checkmark.svg Both synthetic and wool materials are suitable in a midlayer.

Tip! Down heats extremely poorly when it gets wet and takes a long time to dry. Therefore, have a rain jacket ready to put over the down jacket on rainy days.
