…and How SubZeroMax By Hoo-rag Can Help
Knowing how to layer winter clothes will help you enjoy winter even more. And SubZeroMax by Hoo-rag is here to help you stay warm even when Jack Frost is slinging enough frozen weather to whack The Iceman Wim Hof!
Since we can’t all wear shorts and flip-flops in January like Mr. Hof, we need to utilize layers with our winter clothes. Why? Because you can wear the heaviest coat on Earth and it won’t keep you warm if you are facing extreme elements. Layers utilize trapped air to keep you warm. One layer, regardless of the thickness, cannot keep you as warm because the warm air will quickly escape the one layer.
Another reason layers are recommended in wintertime is because each layer has its own function. Like The Iceman – his function is to make us feel bad about not being able to hold our breath for 9 minutes! The inner layer of winter clothes should function to keep moisture off your skin. Moisture-wicking material such as Hoo-rag’s polyester microfiber is best for this inner layer.
The middle layer is the main air trapper. This is the insulator that warms you up with the air trapped between the outer and inner layer next to your skin. Each layer is crucial to keeping your body temperature at a safe level.
The outer layer does this by keeping the elements out! Wind and precipitation should be blocked by your outer “shell,” because once the elements defeat that barrier then the inner two layers are at risk of getting wet and becoming cold fast!Continue reading The Importance of Layering Winter Clothes
