22. LAYER 2 - MID LAYER LAYER 2 - MID LAYER

LAYER 2 CLOTHING HOLDS WARM DRY, INSULATING AIR INSIDE THE CLOTHING SYSTEM AND CLOSE TO THE BODY. IT, THEREFORE, PROVIDES INSULATION AND WARMTH WHILE TRANSPORTING MOISTURE AND EXCESS HEAT TO THE NEXT LAYER OR INTO THE SURROUNDING AIR.

Insulation wear is the second or middle layer of clothing you wear. It is designed to be worn over the base layer and underneath the outer layer, or by itself on chilly days. The thicker or loftier the layer is, the greater its heat retaining and moisture transport abilities. Mid layer garments come in a variety of fabrics with multiple purposes.
