Dress for The Winter Fashionably

When we are physically active so the body produces heat. If it gets too hot so the body would start to cool itself by secreting sweat. It can become a problem during the winter, but is unproblematic if you are properly dressed.
The secret is to dress properly actually consists of two things:

  • Transporting sweat away from the skin to keep it as dry as possible.
  • Keep your body warm and good.

Dress in Several Layers

This principle is to have clothes in different teams have different functions. If you know these principles so you can be sure that you get an excellent outing. The reason is simple: you are achieving the two simple principles, sweat and excess heat are transported away from the body while you do not get cold.

For convenience we call the three layers:

  • underwear
  • Between Garments
  • GARMENT

Underwear

There are undergarments made of cotton, wool and various synthetic materials. Cotton should never use next to the body. When cotton gets wet then pasted the inntill body and you want to feel cold. Wool is recommended to secure the highest number of conditions. It retains heat even if it gets wet. Soft merino wool in Ulvang and Iris are very comfortable to wear next to the skin.

See our range of underwear for women and men.

Three layer gives you the feeling of being warm and dry. To the left, it is a synthetic underwear from Bavac, a fleece and a shell jacket that breathes.

Base of synthetic material often go under the covering technical underwear as such Craft and Lifa. These transport humidity very well from the body. The question is whether to use a technical base layer of synthetic or natural materials such as wool. It depends on the degree of activity, outside temperature and the degree of sweating.

  • Should you train hard, we recommend synthetic, technical underwear
  • Is your training full of different degrees of loads, combined with breaks so it is recommended wool. If you do not like to have the wool on the skin, so you can combine with a technical underwear inside ulltröjan. Then you have eg Helly Hansen base layer called Warm, Lifa Prowool. They have combined with technical base layer next to the skin and wool outside.

To see that the place for you, so it will sit tight on the body but you’ll still have good movement. It must not slide up along the back when bending.

Between Garments

Mellanplaggets primary job is to keep you warm and transport moisture and excess heat further away from the body. As the garment is recommended fleece or wool. Fleece generally have good wear resistance, good comfort and low weight. Also transports moisture away.

It is the middle layer that you choose the number of teams depending on temperature and activity. Several thin law gives you good reguleringsmöjligheter. In order to limit the weight you can use a fleece has wind resistant inner lining, and if the weather permits, you can also use it as an outer garment.

Remember that a warm, thick wool sweater is smart to have in your backpack if you become frozen.

Garment

Also known as shell jacket. The ultimate team is the most important and should be a windproof garments with good ventilation possibilities. The best shell jackets have a membrane that lets moisture out but not in. The best-known membrane is Gore-Tex used by many textile producers. Triple Point, and Helly Hansen Helly Tech is the second membranes breathe. Waterproof outer garments may also have an opportunity ventilation under the arms, which is a great advantage.

The tops should have a hood that accommodates a cap when the cap is on. The lining on the outer garment is obvious than on the season and temperature, but it also comes at an election of the garment. It is best if the outer garment has a zipper, preferably with wind flap with Velcro so that the wind flaps are in place.

Hats, Socks And Mittens.

Pay extra attention to the head-that’s where you usually lose the most heat. Make it a habit to always use at least a thin cap. Wool and fleece are good-preferably combined with a windproof layer.

When choosing sugar so you should never use cotton. Cotton allows you to quickly get blisters and you will be wet feet so socks are useless. The best is wool. At the chilly tours so they should be thin, deep and extremely thick.

Mittens and gloves should also be of wool. Is it properly cold or if you are going to the mountains and skiing, it is windproof gloves a good option. Either slide the outside of the ullhandskarna or simply use them. It is an advantage if they windproof gloves have a removable lining in fleece or wool.
