How to stay warm and dry during your cross-country skiing outings
We recommend using the three-layer technique for your winter activities:
Layer 1: a second skin (high-tech base layer) to wick away moisture, keeping your skin dry.
Layer 2: an insulating layer (T-shirt or fleece) to provide warmth and transfer moisture outwards.
Layer 3: an outer protective layer (jacket) to protect against weather conditions: wind, snow, and cold.
Adjust the number of layers based on the level of physical effort and the weather and make sure that the 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 when making physical effort
RET >20: not very breathable and therefore not suitable when making physical effort
RET >40: not breathable
