Base Layer

Layer 1 - The Base Layer

A good base layer will wick moisture away from your body to keep you dry, warm & comfortable.
 
This layer is worn next to your skin and must transfer (wick) sweat away from your body as fast as possible. Polypropylene and Polyester fabrics are best for this. A good wicking fabric will attract liquid moisture and use body heat to convert this to liquid vapor to move it away from your skin.  
 
Beware of cotton clothing which can absorb 30+% more than its weight in water and transfers heat away from your body thirty times quicker than dry air. 
 

The Layer System:

  1. The Base Layer
  2. The Middle Layer
  3. The Outerwear Layer
