Warmth comes in layers

Bookmark and Share  

November 6, 2013

During very cold and windy days, wear layered clothing. Each layer of clothing traps a small amount of air that helps insulate the body from the outside cold and wind. The top layers will cut down on the penetration of the wind, allowing the lower layers to trap heat, thus lowering the amount of heat that the wind can carry away from the body.
