Call me lame, but when I was in Boy Scouts that's what we were told to where. It's warm and wicks the moisture AWAY from your body. Which is what you want when you're perspirating in cold weather. Besides, do you know what happens to you if you catch on fire and you're wearing a synthetic? I know it's not likely, but just saying.Originally posted by Rainman
[br]I was watching some stuff on the discovery channel that wearing cotton is very bad in the cold weather. What else is good to wear under your coat/recommendations?
That seems like a lot of clothes to me. Id die of sweat with that much on.Originally posted by xcr440
[br]I layer my clothes, I wear long john, jeans, insulated socks, columbia long sleeved shirt and a jersey, tekvest, and then my jacket and pants. The vents on the jacket are always opened. Rarely get wet with this set up.
I'm a dope - I meant wool. Heh - it's been a long time. Wool insulates when wet, cotton doesn't.Originally posted by rayrevo
[br]like they told me in snowmobile safety COTTON KILLS and that if you want to stay warm that 100% wool is the best because it still insulates when wet. i normally wear some kind of neopreem as a bass layer and and parcial wool sweatter or pants over it but, that is only on really cold days.
