The 3-layer principal
HOW TO DRESS FOR COLD WORKING DAYS
Our high-tech and functional garments are designed to protect you in heavy down pours, icy winds and snow. At the same time and despite heavy manual work the clothes must transport excess heat and moisture away and you must be able to move freely. Dressing according to the 3-layer principal is a smart and effective way to keep dry and avoid getting cold.
The base layer keeps you dry closest to your body. Keeps moisture away from the skin and prevents the body from getting cold.
Spring, autumn and during hard physical work, choose lighter underwear in function material. For cold weather conditions choose underwear that also are warming, in merino wool or in insulating micro fleece. Use our Underwear Guide to find the right underwear for your working conditions.
The middle layer insulates while letting out the moisture from the base layer. Select the thickness of the garment based on your working conditions.
Choose thickness of the garment depending on temperature and physical activity. See some examples of garments below.
The outer layer, or shell layer, protects against wind, rain and snow - but lets evaporating moisture out.
Choose lined garments or shell garments depending on temperature and physical activity. See some examples of garments below.
