How to stay warm and dry during my cross-country skiing outings?
Follow the 3-layer technique.
Layer 1: second skin (high-tech base layer) that wicks away moisture to keep the skin dry.
Layer 2: insulating (T-shirt, fleece) layer that provides warmth and transfers moisture outwards.
Layer 3: outer protective (jacket) layer that protects from the weather conditions: wind, snow, and cold.
Adjust the number of layers to the level of your physical effort and the weather, and make sure that the clothing is breathable.
Why should you protect yourself from the wind?
Did you know that the wind makes you feel colder?
With an outside temperature of 0°C and a 20 km/h wind, the perceived temperature is -10°C.
The so-called "windproof" components help to reduce this wind chill by blocking the air flow resulting from actual wind and the forward motion of your activity.
Why is it important to wear breathable clothing for cross-country skiing?
To avoid getting wet, wear breathable clothing that eliminates water vapour generated by perspiration.
We measure its evaporative resistance=RET
RET<6: extremely breathable – ideal for very intense physical effort
RET from 6 to 12: very breathable, suitable for moderate physical effort
RET from 12 to 20: moderately breathable, not particularly pleasant when making physical effort
RET>20: not very breathable and therefore not very suitable when making physical effort
RET>40: not breathable
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
The environmental impacts of the product are calculated over its entire life cycle using various indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc.) with each other.
Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating system.
