With the arrival of winter, we are often asked what clothes should be taken with you for a trip. Let's start with the fact that clothes do not warm. It keeps your warm. Therefore, the main task of winter clothing is to eliminate the loss of warm air heated by your body, as well as to remove the moisture evaporated by it. Clothing for passive rest in winter can often look like cabbage, that is, consist of several layers.
All winter journeys can be divided into two kinds— leisurely city walks and outdoor activities (snowboarding, hiking, etc.). In reality of course there are much more options, but for your understanding principles, it is enough. The fundamental difference between passive and active rest — is the amount of heat generated, as well as sweat. And we will proceed on this basis.
Clothing for passive rest in winter, otherwise you will look like cabbage
The most common principle of winter equipping is reduced to the so-called three-layer system. This system involves the use of three different kinds of clothing-a basic layer with moisture wicking capability (thermal underwear), an intermediate insulating layer (a jumper) and an upper wind/moisture resistant layer (jacket).
Depending on how you personally afraid of frost and degree of activity, you can individually select each layer, as well as add more layers.
Details of importance
Make sure that the air heated by your body is not wasted anywhere (exclude the models similar to loose cloaks, under which the wind moves freely, and those with wide sleeves without cuffs, etc.). Cover your bare neck, wear gloves. Otherwise, your heat goes away to the outside.
For active athletes, the opposite is true-they should use ventilation holes to avoid overheating and excessive sweat. It is better to dress a little lighter and be dry than to overheat and sweat. You can easily catch a cold that way.
Do not let warm air out
On the head it is better to wear a hat that covers the ears (again, not thin cotton beanies, which all stores selling general purpose objects are littered with, and which are blown by all the winds, but wool or acrylic ones with a fleece lining). For very cold weather a ski mask will be the single choice. You should put knitted gloves on your hands, in addition to warm mittens, which can be put over the first pair in case of the need arises. If despite all the layers you continue to feel cold, you can consider that on the other hand and stimulate the production of heat by your body.
