What is a layering system?
A layering system is used to best protect you from the elements, whether it’s raining, windy, or hot, whilst also keeping you as comfortable as possible. Knowing your environment and activity is key when determining your layering system. Taking into consideration your activity and if the weather conditions are likely to change is as important. The basis of a layering system should be to keep sweat away from skin, whilst trapping body heat and protecting you from the weather.
Why is it important?
A layering system is important because it allows you to make the most of each item of clothing in different conditions. By taking advantage of each individual layer, you can mix and match to give you the best combination for the activity and weather ahead.
