DO YOU WEAR UNDERWEAR UNDERTHERMAL UNDERWEAR?
The simple answer is that it is up to what you feel most comfortable with! There is no right or wrong way to wear thermal clothing. Some people prefer to use the thermal layers next to the skin, and it is, of course, possible to buythermal underwear. However, if you feel better wearing some underwear underneath, it will not be a problem. Close fitting items would be better than roomy boxers for thermal insulation properties.
WHAT IS THE PRINCIPLE BEHIND THERMAL WEAR?
Gases (which include air) possess poor thermal conduction properties compared to liquids and solids, and this makes them good insulation material if they can be trapped. In order to increase the effectiveness of a gas, it may be broken up into small cells which cannot effectively transfer heat by natural convection. This principle is mimicked in nature by trapping air between fibres of wool, or between feathers of a down duvet for instance.
WHAT ARE THE MAIN BENEFITS OF THERMAL CLOTHING?
- It regulates body temperature. Thermal clothing will not absorb moisture such as sweat, and any moisture generated by your skin will quickly be led away from the skin to other functional layers. It helps to stabilise your body temperature and saves your energy.
- It always feels warm. The ability not to absorb sweat brings another indispensable feature - thermal clothing will not make you cold. It will maintain its functions and lead the sweat away while keeping you warm and dry.
- It dries very quickly. Thermal clothing will dry much more quickly than, for instance, cotton pants and shirts, which can be a real bonus in many situations.
- It gives you freedom of movement. The thin layers of thermal clothing fit closely against the skin but do not impair your freedom of movement like a bulky jacket might do.
- It is lightweight. Thermal clothing is lightweight, which is a bonus when you are wearing it and also when you have to carry it around in your luggage.
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THERMAL CLOTHING?
Thermal clothing is ideal to wear as abase layernext to your skin, and can also be incorporated into middle and outer clothing items. Thermal clothing is layered, from underwear to thermalt-shirt,thermal top,longsleeve top,unisextop andleggings. To combat extreme cold, experts recommend that you add another two layers of clothing to your thermalbase layer: a mid-layer and an outer layer. That way, you maximise the benefits of trapping air between the various layers of clothing, and in changing conditions, you can shed either the mid layer or the outer layer to stop your body from overheating. The mid layer may be something like to fleece top orsoft-shell jacket, which will increase the warmth, while the outer layer keeps the wind and/or rain or snow from your inner layers.
