Clothing for cold weather
The best thing is to wear light summer style clothes with additional layers. Layers work well as they can be adjusted throughout the day as the conditions change.
You will also need:
A warm jumper. The best material these days is polar fleece or equivalents as they are lightweight and dry very quickly if they get wet. Wool, on the other hand, is heavy and takes a long time to dry. Cotton is not appropriate.
A warm hat is an important weapon for winter use. Did you know that you lose 40% of your body heat through your head? So if you’re feeling cold, don a hat and feel the difference.
If you suffer from cold hands, we suggest you invest in a lightweight pair of polypropylene gloves.
In very cold conditions, thermal clothing is useful. Thermal clothing should be worn next to the skin to be most effective.
