SCOTT – Layer Like a Pro

How you dress for your day in the mountains can make or break your experience. Whether you’re a resort skier, mountaineer, or big mountain freerider, strategic layering is key to ensure all day comfort and enjoyment. Following these simple steps will allow you to make quickly adapt based on your activity level and changing weather conditions.

It doesn’t matter if you are skinning up to your secret powder stash, or summiting your next peak. You will sweat. If you don’t, you’ll overheat. The ideal comfort zone for the body is 37°, above this temperature, it becomes difficult to stay focused and perform at your best.

In order to keep your body best in its optimal comfort zone, we recommend wearing different layers so you can actively regulate your temperatures throughout the day. The thinner these layers are, the more precise the regulation.

Each layer has a function

SCOTT products are specifically designed to work in harmony with one-another, and our full line of layering pieces is no exception. Together with SCOTT outerwear, our layering keeps skiers warm, dry, and ready to tackle the mountain.

 1. BASE LAYER

Staying dry in cold weather environments is the first step in ensuring all day comfort. As the name implies, the base layer is your next-to-skin layer and is vital for actively managing perfusion. It helps regulate core temperature by moving your body’s perspiration away from your skin.

2. MIDLAYER / INSULATING LAYER

The midlayer, or insulating layer, provides the warmth you need to play in the cold. The insulating layer helps retain the heat you produce by trapping air close to your body. Natural fibers such as wool and goose down are excellent insulators.

3. SHELL LAYER / OUTER LAYER

The shell layer/outer layer is your shield, protecting you from the elements. All SCOTT shells are treated with a durable water repellent (DWR) finish, which ensures that moisture will bead up, and easily roll off the fabric. But keeping the elements out is only half the battle. A good shell-layer also needs to offer good ventilation capabilities, so perspiration can properly exit the body and evaporate rather than condense on the inside of your shell.
