How to dress while exploring the Arctic Circle?
There is a golden rule for extreme cold explorers which is the 3-layer rule:
- The first layer: a nylon or merino garment to keep the body dry
- The second layer: a garment made of wool like a fleece in order to retain heat
- The third layer: a protective garment such as a ventilated windbreaker to protect yourself from the wind while protecting you from the snow
CAUTION : Please ban cotton from your clothes except your underwear. Cotton soaks up moisture, which is
a danger in extreme cold.
