BASE LAYERSThe base layer is worn next to the skin and its main purpose is to regulate your body temperature by retaining heat and wicking away moisture. On colder days, the base layer is essential for keeping the body warm.
When heading out, you need to dress for the conditions but as we all know, conditions and temperatures can change rapidly. With this in mind, you need to be able to adapt by adding or shedding clothes and by using layers of clothing allows you to be flexible and alter what you're wearing accordingly.
In it's simplest form, layering for colder weather consists of a three-piece outfit: a base layer, a mid layer and an outer layer. Extra layers can then be added like an outer rain jacket or extra insulated jacket.
You can simply regulate your comfort by taking layers on or off depending on your activity level or the weather conditions.
