How to layer
FIRST LAYER: Base Layer
Sometimes called "long underwear," this is the first layer you put on. It should have a close fit that contours to your body to wick moisture away from the body, and thereby keep you warmer.
SECOND LAYER: Fleece
Worn semifitted, this layer is worn over a base layer, and is meant to provide additional warmth and still maintain breathability. It’s also great worn without a base layer, thanks to next-to-skin, brushed softness and different weights and finishes, such as water repellency and wind resistance.
THIRD LAYER: Outerwear
The final layer is a protective shell worn over the base layer and fleece layer. This defends you from the penetrating, chilling effects of wind and water, while still maintaining breathability to wick away the moisture evaporated from your skin by the base layer.
The shell’s ability to guard against moisture is a major consideration - preventing water from soaking through to your skin is ideal not only to optimize your cold-weather comfort and performance, but also to ensure your safety in extreme cold weather.
