HOW TO DRESS FOR THE COLD
One excellent method for dressing in cold conditions is the multi-layer principle. This principle makes it possible to adapt to the cold, wind and rain.
The multi-layer principle divides clothing into four layers, each with its own purpose:
It is easy to assume that a winter trek is synonymous with extreme cold, but in many mountain environments the weather can change dramatically, for example when coastal winds blow in wet snow or even rain.
In this kind of unpredictable weather a reinforcement garment can be an ultra-light rain garment that is pulled over the third layer, the working garment, to protect against moisture.
In other words, the multi-layer principle is a model that provides a basis for how to think when planning your trek. As with all models, it must be adapted to real-life situations and prevailing conditions.
