How to stay warm and dry during cross-country ski outings
We recommend the 3-layer technique.
Layer 1: a technical base layer that wicks away moisture to keep your skin dry.
Layer 2: an insulating layer (T-shirt, fleece) that provides warmth and wicks moisture outward.
Layer 3: an outer layer (jacket) that protects against the elements: wind, snow, and cold.
Adjust the number of layers according to your physical activity and the weather. Make sure your clothing is breathable.
Why is it important to wear breathable clothing when cross-country skiing?
To avoid dampness, wear breathable clothing that eliminates perspiration.
We measure the evaporative resistance (RET) of our clothing
RET < 6: extremely breathable, ideal for the most intense physical effort
RET 6–12: very breathable, suitable for moderate physical effort
RET 12–20: moderately breathable, not particularly pleasant for physical effort
RET > 20: not very breathable and therefore not suitable for physical effort
RET > 40: not breathable
