Winter  Camping essentials  

In general, dress in multiple thin layers of synthetic clothing. No cotton!

Examples: polyester, acrylic, or polypropylene. Wool is the only natural fiber recommended.

Bring clothing to allow for two different activity levels, one active and one for stationary around camp.

Layer your clothing in three different types:

 

1 The first layer against the skin should be long underwear that will be the wicking layer to transport the moisture from your perspiration from your skin.

 

2 The second layer should be the layer that traps warm air and creates insulation from the cold. This layer contains lofty material that has dead air space such as fleece – "Polartec", synthetic down, or down. The higher the loft the warmer you will be.

 

3 The third layer should keep out moisture. This is to keep your insulating clothing dry but also allow your perspiration to escape.
