Our Guide To Layering
Layers are essential this time of year when the cold creeps in. They help you control and maintain your core temperature, whilst staying adaptable to weather condition, and they should be light enough to carry with you; whilst keeping you comfortably warm.
We’ve got you covered with a wide variety of baselayers, midlayers and outerlayers that are designed to help you take on the challenge no matter the weather, so you can stay active all season long.
FROM THE BASE UP
A base layer moderates your body temperature, helping you to keep your cool when hot, and toasty in the cold.
When choosing your base layer, keep the following in mind:
Material - consider moisture-wicking garments for your base layer, as these absorb/ help move sweat off your skin to better regulate your body temperature whilst keeping you dry.
Weight - the heavier the fabric, the warmer you’ll be.
Fit - Moisture-wicking fabric needs to be in direct contact with your skin to work its magic.
Check out our range of base layers made with bamboo and polypropylene fabrics for optimal moisture-wicking and odour control.
TRAP THE WARMTH INSIDE
Mid layers are for insulation and should be breathable, moisture wicking and quick drying. Consider the weather conditions you’re layering up against - wind, rain or snow can make the air feel colder than the temperature forecasted, which will determine which garment to choose, and whether to add a second layer on top. Shop our range of fleece and soft shell jackets.
TACKLE THE WEATHER
Your outer layer protects you against the elements.
Wind - Our lightweight windbreaker is easy to carry, folds small, and will keep the wind and mist at bay. We recommend the Kinetic Running Jacket. Don’t let its weightlessness fool you - it’s incredibly durable
Additional items like a pair of fleece-lined gloves or toe covers can make a big difference to your comfort when the temperatures get low. A neck gaiter that can be pulled up over your nose or a pair of toe caps over your shoes to protect you from the icy wind when you’re moving will keep your extremities warm. These accessories can also easily be removed if you get hot during a ride and packed into your pocket.
In summary, base layers are for body temperature control, mid-layers are for insulation and outer layers should protect you from the elements. The concept of layering works perfectly if each individual layer supports the wicking process – each item has to transfer moisture to the next layer. Our garments are lightweight and durable, with options for anything the weather might throw at you. Move through winter with confidence, without your comfort being compromised.
