what to wear for expedition

Layer up for essential warmth on your expeditions. Choose thermal, breathable base layers that wick away moisture to keep you comfortable and dry. Add breathable warmth with a fleece then a mid-layer jacket filled with duck down or PrimaLoft® insulation. Finally, protect yourself against the elements with an outer layer that is waterproof and windproof. Complete your kit with thermal gloves, hats and socks too.

ACCESSORIES

OUTER LAYER

High-energy activity requires very breathable and waterproof technical shells. GORE-TEX® and PrimaLoft® garments that are highly specialised will ensure your comfort and safety. These weatherproof garments will help insulate you from the weather. Technical details, such as RECCO® Rescue reflectors, will help mountain rescue teams locate you in an emergency.

MID LAYER

Your mid layer is your insulator: add or remove warmth as you increase or decrease your level of activity. Choose a mid-layer that is lightweight, warm and breathable. Unrestrictive PrimaLoft® insulated garments are often ideal for purpose. Utilise WINDSTOPPER® technology to block the wind – a cause of rapid heat loss.
Middle Layers for expedition

BASE LAYER

Heavier, thicker clothing won’t optimise your comfort or leave you free to move on expeditions in the coldest climates. Light layers that trap your body heat are much more effective at keeping you warm. So choose your base layer wisely. As the layer closest to your skin, it has to be your most comfortable. It should regulate your temperature and wick away moisture. Lightweight merino fabrics make excellent base layers, with natural anti-odour qualities to keep you fresh. Opt for active thermals in colder climes.
