Thermals FAQ



Q: Why Layer?

A: Layering gives you the ability to select a mix of garments that are appropriate for anticipated weather conditions, your expected activity levels, and your metabolism. Successful layering matches garment weight, fabric technology, & number of layers to the expected conditions & activity level. It also allows for some adjustments so you can be comfortable, dry, and perform at your best as activity & temperature vary.


Q: How important is theBaseLayer?

A: The base layer is your most important layer—this is worn next to your skin & it helps regulate your body temperature and transport moisture away from your body; so you keep you dry and comfortable. Base layer garments use a variety of fabric technologies & follow a progression from light to heavier weight. You select the fabric weight & technology to suit anticipated temperatures, activity level, and your metabolism.


Q: Do I need a Mid-Layer?

A: The mid layer will provide you with additional thermal insulation and it should also aid the transportation of moisture from your base layer to your outer layer. Select the mid layer weight & technology accordingly to suit anticipated temperatures, activity level, and your metabolism. This layer may often serve as your outer layer when your activity level and weather conditions suit a simple two layer system. In mild conditions & the warmest part of the day, you may find you only need to wear the base layer.


Q: Do I need an Outer-Shell?

A: This is the outer garment you would put on over your baselayer / midlayer for barrier protection from the effects of wind or cold air movement, rain, water spray, or snow. This layer may add significant thermal insulation, and it should aid transportation of generated moisture to the outside air. As you warm up and conditions improve you have the choice of removing this layer or your mid layer where appropriate to suit your needs.


Q: How do I choose the best layering system for me?

A: We have a lightweight, and some midweight baselayer options to choose from. In general, for more activity & freedom of movement, you will want the light-weight micropolyester base-layer, or the mid-weight micropolyester base layer. In general for less activity, the polypro will work well. Our mid-layer will work well with all these options.
