“PHILOSOFY OF THE 3 LAYERS”
• INNER LAYER: the first layer or first skin: This is the layer that is in direct contact with the skin of the person. It is important that the garment absorb sweat and expel it to the outside of the fabric to facilitate its evaporation and avoid the sensation of cold and moisture.
•ISOLATION LAYER: coat, the second layer or second skin layer is carried above the first and which can be formed by a great amount of insulating fibers and fabrics (such as windbreaks, fleece). Its function is to draw air, enabling heat transfer.
•LAYER WEATHER PROTECTIO, THIRD LAYER OR “MENBRANE”: these are very important in the case of rainy or windy weather and avoid heat loss. Protects the body and to the other layers. Should be waterproof (keep wet second coat), windbreaks (cold air does not enter) and breathable (allowing moisture to escape and not feel you are "wet inside").
