LAYER UP TO STAY WARM
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
