LAYERING GUIDE – PROTECTION AGAINST THE ELEMENTS
The Norse Projects layering guide is thoughtfully created to aid individuals in attaining utmost comfort and peak performance across a variety of situations. This guide will accompany you through an exploration of the four foundational layers: base layer, mid layer, shell layer, and outer insulation. Remember that layering is all about adaptability. You can mix and match these layers depending on the weather and activity level. Norse Projects provides a wide range of options, ensuring you can build a versatile layering system that suits your needs.
The foundation of effective layering begins with the base layer. Designed for both comfort and functionality, this layer serves as your initial defense against moisture. Its primary goal is to keep your body dry and comfortable, even in challenging conditions. Opt for cutting-edge moisture-wicking fabrics such as fine merino wool or innovative synthetics. With the assurance of staying dry, you can move unhindered and confidently.
Enhance your layering strategy with versatile mid layer options. Whether you’re navigating the urban landscape or embracing the great outdoors, these pieces provide an extra touch of warmth and adaptability. The mid layer is engineered to insulate and adjust according to your surroundings. Choose from a range of materials including wool, down, or advanced synthetic fills like THERMOLITE®. These materials combine comfort and insulation, ensuring you remain snug and well-prepared for any adventure.
Protecting against the elements, the shell layer shields you from wind, rain, and snow, keeping you dry and comfortable in any environment by also being breathable in order to transport moisture out of the microclimate. Discover jackets crafted from advanced materials like GORE-TEX®, GORE-TEX INFINIUM® or Pertex® Shield, combining protection and breathability in all conditions.
OUTER INSULATION LAYER
The outer insulation layer is a versatile solution suitable for cold weather, as it can be used on its own or as a replacement for a shell when needed. These jackets are designed to provide essential warmth in chilly conditions with added water protection from either GORE-TEX® or Pertex® technologies. You have the option to select between different levels of down, all of which are highly effective at trapping heat and ensuring your comfort even in the harshest weather conditions.
