LAYER UP TO STAY WARM

Sky at Night Magazine - - WINTER CLOTHING REVIEW -

1 Base layer

Ice­breaker Ev­ery­day Long-Sleeve Crewe £54.99 • www.el­lis-brigham.com For the base layer, com­fort is key as it will be di­rectly touch­ing your skin and can’t be con­ve­niently changed in the field. Merino wool is breath­able, light­weight and itch-free.

2 Ther­mal leg­gings

Ice­breaker 200 Oa­sis Leg­gings £64.99 • www.el­lis-brigham.com The func­tion of fab­ric touch­ing the skin is to wick mois­ture away. Avoid cot­ton and stick with Merino wool. Its fi­bres are thin­ner than nor­mal wool, mak­ing it good for per­for­mance and com­fort.

3 Mid layer

Rab Nexus Pull-On £55.00 • www.rab.equip­ment/uk The mid layer is your in­su­la­tion: it keeps you warm. This model is a stretchy fleece ma­te­rial, mean­ing it will keep in the heat around your body with­out re­strict­ing your move­ment.

4 Socks

Lor­pen T3 Heavy Trekker Socks £23 • www.lor­pen.co.uk Your feet will be do­ing most of the work and have a bad habit of sweat­ing. Good qual­ity, thick socks will keep you warm and dry, and are also com­fort­able in hard-shell footwear.
