Layers for Winter Sports by Aurora LaGambre
This article is about the layers of clothing you should wear while playing winter sports.
In this article, it talks about how layering winter clothes when you were younger, and layering your winter clothes now is different because when you are younger you aren’t too far away from your house while playing in the winter but when you’re older you may go on adventures away from home. This is why it is important to have all the necessary layers. The article talks about how you should have three layers, the first layer should be a wind breaker, the second layer should keep you warm and the third layer should act as a wick for your sweat.
After reading this article I know what clothing will be appropriate for the winter camp coming up. I now realize that there are a few things that I have been doing wrong when it comes to keeping warm outdoors. For example I never use a “wicking” layer to absorb sweat.
