Polypropylene, polyester, Thinsulate and wool are all good choices. AVoid cotton because it traps moisture, stays wet and draws heat away from you. Base layers come in various weights -- lightweight, midweight and heavyweight. Select a weight based upon the out- side temperature and your activity level. The light6r weight fabric is better at wicking; the heavyweight fabric has more insulation. The mid or second layer is for insulation purposes to keep your body warm. This layer should be somewhat looser, but to function prop- erly it needs to maintain contact with the base layer. Mid layers also carry mois- ture away from the base lay- er to the outer layer. The mid layer is often made of down, polyester, fleece, wool and synthetic/natural blends. Many mid layer clothing have extras such as armhole zippers, long front zippers, adjustable cuffs and collars. The final or third layer al- lows moisture to escape while blocking wind and re- pelling water. This outer layer sports a dual function: It should be a breathable material that will allow moisture to escape the body and should function is as a wind blocker and water re- pellent. This layer is often made of a high-performance textile such as Gore-Tex, which is waterproof, or a similar material. Extras such as armhole zippers, an- kle zippers (for pants) and a variety of ventilation op- Outdoor exercise is an ex- cellent ways to stay fit year- round -- even during cold winter months. However, it is important to make some changes to your exercise routine to ensure your well- being and safety during the colder seasons. No matter your locale or how long the winter might last where you live, winter exercise will usually require some modi- fications in your wardrobe. Your location and the aver- age winter temperature may even change the type of ac- tivities you use to keep fit. By moving your routines to an indoor location such as a gym or your living room, it is possible in most locations to dress properly, even for sub-zero temperatures. Prepare for your workout by choosing a combination of clothes (in layers) to help regulate your temperature and keep you warm and dry. The layers you wear for a given activity are matched to the weather, your activity level and your personal pref- erence. There are essentially three layers to consider: base, mid and outer. Each layer has a specific function. The first or base layer is in contact with your skin and keeps moisture and per- spiration away to keep you warm. The base layer should be a tight layer made of a BEST Burgers in Chester First Thursday of every month "Martini Madness" Open bowling 6 days00:00liv00eek Full bar . $ 2 Draft Beer,,:000044 Easy walki00J}00'00stance : 00a00.0000r00adBerUnsw, ck poo, tables tions are standard. Outer layers should also be tough enough to withstand tears and abrasions. Other less high tech options may in- clude wind resistant materi- als, or water resistant fab- rics. Once you have a layering plan, you can adjust your temperature control simply by removing or adding lay- er3 as needed. Another tip for maintaining the life of your clothing is to follow the care instructions on the item. Synthetic and techni- cal fabrics need to be cleaned properly in order to wick, insulate and repel wa- ter over time. Special clean- ing products can restore the moisture-wicking and water repellent properties when necessary. After your body is covered, you need to prop- erly dress your extremities (head, hands and feet). If the weather is significantly cold or there are warnings for frostbite in your area, it is especially important to re- member your feet, fingers and your head should be protected. The extremities are the first places that will lose body heat in cold tem- peratures. Wear a hat, mittens/ gloves, socks and shoes that match your activity and weather conditions. To cool down if you overheat, you can just remove your hat or gloves. Keep in mind that wind-blocking fabric is also important for hats and gloves. Although fleece by it- self is warm, it does not pro- vide protection from wind so look for wind resistant fleece products. Extra options on gloves include grips on the palms to assist keeping hold of handles and removable fin- gertips to allow you to use the buttons or zippers on your jacket, among others. Proper layering will not only make you more com- fortable during winter activ- ity, but it also keeps you safe. And speaking of safety, darkness comes early in the winter so consider gear and clothing in bright color and with reflective accents. Fi- nally, remember to protect your natural outer layer as well -- your skin. Winter weather threatens the skin with cold, wind and lower humidity indoors and out. Protect your skin, espe- cially face and lips, with mois- turizer and sun protection. Apply face lotion and lip balm before venturing outdoors, and for daytime adventures choose products with SPF. Once you are back home, wash your face and apply moisturizer to offset winter's chapping and the drying ef- fects of indoor heating.
