MASTER THE MOUNTAINS
Dress for Comfort
Mountains make their own weather.
Layer for efficiency. On cold, windy days, hike in your shell and put your puffy on over the top at rest breaks.
Prevent chills. Stop and put on a layer before reaching a windy ridge. Add layers for the descent.
Stay dry on the inside. Before you start hiking, delayer until you’re comfortably cool. Moderate your pace so you don’t overheat under a shell.
Don’t let rain sneak in. Wear gaiters. Snug your hood. Cinch cuffs and make sure no baselayer sleeves are exposed.
