Tips for Staying Warm with Layers

Posted: Updated:

Head to Toe Clothing Layering

To start, it is important to consider what level of activity you are going to be doing.  If you are going to be walking then you would use a lighter layering system than if you were sitting all day in a tree stand all day.

Most people who enjoy the outdoors know about layering their clothing, but sometimes forget about their head, hands and feet. You should layer those as well in cold weather.  When layering, be sure to use fabrics that will wick moisture away from your body such as Thermax, polypropylene, and silk.  Avoid cotton fabrics as they can retain moisture and aid in lowering body temperate, sometimes to dangerous levels. Cabela's and other retailers have several layering systems that can help make you purchasing decisions easier.
