Adapt to changing weather conditions with our layering system. Whether it is for comfort or survival, there are a few basic principles when putting together a performance outfit.

Regulating your body temperature forms the core function of the layering systems, ensuring you are kept warm, whilst wicking moisture away from the body's surface.


The importance of the Foundation Layer - The Baselayer

Arguably the most important layer, the baselayer helps to regulate the bodies core temperature by wicking moisture away from your body to keep you dry and comfortable.



Moisture and temperature management

Baselayers - the foundation layer to the clothing layering system and the most fundamental layer in ensuring that your body temperature remains regulated during activity by wicking moisture away from the body's surface.



The mid layer's primary function is to capture and maintain warmth by trapping air. From thick Sherpa-lined fleece's to various shell jackets, we have a variety of mid-layers to suit any activity.

Always keep your primary activity in mind when selecting a mid-layer, as this garment needs to be fit-for-purpose. Mid-layers would generally need to offer superior breathability, as well as moisture-wicking properties, to eliminate the build-up of sweat.



Additional Insulation and Comfort

The insulation layer is your layer of extreme warmth, whether selecting a Down or Synthetic Jacket, the insulation layer is designed to provide you with extra loft and warmth, with garments in this category featuring a high warmth-to-weight ratio.

When selecting your insulation layer, ensure that it sits comfortably over your fleece and under your outer shell. Down and Synthetic Jackets are also great to wear individually during dry conditions.


Weather protection

The outer layer is your last protection layer, shielding you against the elements whilst allowing for additional body heat to escape, preventing overheating.

When selecting an outer layer jacket, it is important to ensure that it is waterproof and breathable, allowing for sweat and water to move away from the body, whilst keeping the cold air from passing through.
