When we travel we must protect ourselves from at least five factors: a) The wind b) The cold c) Sweating and condensation d) Moisture / water / snow e) Light / sun

a) How do we protect ourselves from the wind? Well, isn’t it enough to get more clothes? Probably yes, but there are also specialized solutions for sale. Another invented membrane is called a wind stopper. As the name suggests, it stops the wind. The difference between a fleece and a windstopper is that at the same thickness (approximately), a windstopper will keep us warm even if the wind blows.It would make the difference and you don’t need to take a jacket with you if you don’t need to. If you are hot, unzip or lower the windstopper. Below it is created a microclimate protected from the outside wind and if you are active, you have a chance to warm up a bit. In this category I would introduce a newer material: soft shell. It is slightly elastic and resembles neoprene on the outside. It withstands the wind, but also has a slight impermeability.

b) The cold

Humans have learned many things from nature, including how to keep our bodies warm. Whether we sleep or are outside, the most important thing to keep in mind is that clothes do not produce heat. Likewise, the sleeping bag does not produce heat, but a good one keeps you protected at very low temperatures. All they do is keep the body warm where it should be. Basically, the secret to not shaking is to put some layers between the body and the cold, and the body heat to stay in the body or around it. Basically we have to cover the parts of the skin through which we lose heat if necessary. This is where the head comes in: being highly vascularized, much of the heat is lost through the head. Leave the laziness and bullshit at home, but take your hat / fez with you. I recommend that you have several fleeces, of all kinds: thin, thick, long, of various colors and definitely some with a zipper from top to bottom.High-performance footwear keeps your feet dry and warm and makes all the money! So are the gloves.

c) Sweating and condensation

Body moisture is a big problem when you’re on the road. If you sweat underneath, you cannot ventilate and get wet from your own perspiration or from the condensation of vapors released by the body.

What is the solution to the condensation caused by body perspiration? There are several that must be combined:

Use clothes with the highest possible permeability and breathability. Compare various materials and read the label when buying good clothes for travel / sports. Don’t wear more clothes than you need. If you have a fast pace and warm up, take off your clothes. Do not use inappropriate clothing for outdoor conditions. If it’s not raining, it’s not windy and you know you’re going up a hill, don’t take your waterproof jacket, or your windstopper. They will create a microclimate between the body and the outer layer and will not “breathe”. Buy clothes with aerators. These vents are usually under the arm. If you find a ski jacket with a zipper under the arm, it is clear that once opened, it will be possible to exchange steam with the outside. Some jackets have vents on the front or chest.

d) Moisture /rain / snow

The outer layer of clothing is the one that must provide protection from rain or snow. How does he do that? The answer comes either from nature or from technological evolution.

1) Skin A coat or shoes made of shiny leather (girls’ boots, for example) can hold water, but not for long. At some point it will soak and you will get wet. To further the performance of the skin, it is applied with grease or something similar. Waterfowl do this and then the water slides so well. We are not birds, but we can buy a waterproofing solution from mountain stores.

2) Other waterproof materials-The seams of all waterproof clothing are vulcanized

e) Light / sun

Here the answer is much simpler: wear sunglasses and apply sunscreen. Especially in winter on snow, but not only then, but whenever there is strong sun (especially at sea and in the mountains), the body is attacked by solar radiation, in this case ultraviolet. The glasses must have a UVA + UVB filter, ie a filter for the two types of ultraviolet radiation. If they don’t have an ultraviolet filter, the glasses may do more harm than good.
