Technical baselayers are designed to move moisture away from the skin keeping you drier, warmer and more comfortable
Ideal for cold weather use, fleece trousers work well layered under some sort of waterproof or windproof shell pants and are great for hut and tent wear too.
Gloves or mitts stop discomfort and frostbite by keeping your hands snug, dry and safe from wind chill
You can lose large amounts of heat through your head, so a good insulated and possibly windproof hat is a must in colder conditions.
Down-filled and synthetically insulated clothing combines low weight and bulk with high levels of insulation. As a generalisation, choose down for dry conditions, synthetics for damper climes.
Long sleeves provide extra protection from the sun's rays as well as some extra insulaton in cooler conditions.
Do we really need to explain what a scarf is?
Do you need... salopettes or normal high–waisted trousers ... full length leg zips for easy access when you’re wearing boots, or even crampons? And how many reinforcement patches are in order? All the options are here...
Ideal for summer months, shorts are great for freedom of movement, let your legs breathe more easily and tend to improve overall cooling too.
Short-sleeved shirts and tees are a good warm weather choice. Bear in mind that exposed arms can burn, so it may make more sense to wear a long-sleeved shirt and simply roll the sleeves up when needed.
Technical walking skirts in outdoor-friendly fabrics can make a great warm weather alternative to shorts for women.
A walking sock does three main things: provides cushioning, increases insulation and helps to wick moisture
Simple tee-shirt designs often work well for fast-moving activities like running, but casual cotton holds sweat and isn't generally a good choice for the outdoors.
Walking trousers may look like any other legwear, but technical fabrics and features like zipped vents and carefully position pockets and reinforcements make them far more suited to on the hill use.
Soft shell legwear works exceptionally well giving a good balance between weather protection, comfort and breathability.
