Our layering system has been developed as a way of layering garments together to offer versatility and ensure ultimate comfort during your outdoor pursuits.
Regulating your body temperature forms the core function of the layering system, ensuring you are kept warm whilst wicking moisture away from the body’s surface.
The layering system does not only apply to tops and jackets, but also leggings and bottoms. Outdoor enthusiasts and athletes combine both top and bottom layering systems for optimum insulation and protection from nature's elements.
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-layers primary function is to capture warmth by trapping air. With a wide variety of mid-layers on offer from your thin to thick fleece. Selecting a mid-layer should be based on the activities and conditions which you are undertaking.
It is important to ensure that when selecting your mid-layer, that the garment is breathable and features moisture-wicking and quick-drying properties, to eliminate sweat from building-up in the layering system.
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.
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.
