How to get dressed in the mountain
The choice of suitable clothing to do any physical activity in the mountain represents a fundamental prerequisite for organism well-being.
In the mountain, in fact practicing sport may cause some adaptation issue, because efforts provoke perspiration and the rigid temperatures may block its evaporation.
It must be always kept in mind the risk doesn’t lie in the low temperatures but rather in a not suitable clothing.
Besides cold, in the mountains there are fast and sudden temperature changes that contribute to create thermal annoyances to the organism.
High mountain clothing must be made of layers ( like an onion) and preferably of technical fabrics such as the polypropylene that, thanks to its specific requisites, can maintain the body temperature constant at its physiological values.
Finding oneself in a skiing track during a severe downfall can be exhausting also for the most trained body, given that the hypothermia risk is always a conceivable possibility.
Mountain climbing technical underwear features must regard an adequate protection from cold, wind, rain and snow; the possibility to get the perspiration expelled without cooling down the body but drying the body quickly, an optimal adherence and wearability.
Technical fibers must dry quickly to let the water vapor from sweat evaporation get through other garments, leaving the epidermis completely dry.
While natural fibers, such as cotton, have long drying times, technical fibers instead offer decisively better functional performances.
What garments you should choose for the mountain
Mountain technical underwear must keep the body always dry, guaranteeing perspiration wicking and evaporation, seamless boxers are ideal for any high altitude sport, because they adhere perfectly to the body without any constriction and, overall, avoiding any irritation from friction.
Wearing a men’s skiing long-sleeved jersey made of polypropylene, the sportsman is sure to protected from low temperature hits in particular during downhills, when there’s the risk to cool down the sweat that comes from physical effort.
Polypropylene is a chemical polymer that constitutes technical fabrics used for technical clothing and assumes a continuous, elastic and voluminous look thanks to the texturization process.
All Biotex high altitude clothing is made of fabrics that are endowed with termoplasticity, a requisite that lets is adhere to the body assuming its shape.
To solve the issue of the cold air that penetrates through the collar even when the jackets are endowed with a hood edged with fur, men’s skiing neckwarmers are the best solution.
Manufactured with technical fabrics, these indispensable accessories are adherent to the neck contributing to seal any possible opening.
