How to dress in Lapland?

What you get from us and what you need to bring with you!

First Layer

No Cotton! The first layer, the layer next to the skin, is the foundation of the system. This layer consists of long underwear, usually made out of synthetic material. It should have properties that transport moisture away from the skin so it can be absorbed by the next layer of clothing. It also provides insulation. This layer must fit snugly, but not restrictively.

Mid-layer

No cotton! This portion of the system may contain multiple layers. These layers are called insulating layers.
Items such as shirts, pants, sweaters, pile/fleece pullovers, pile/fleece pants, etc., all make up these layers. It is important to remember that each layer Added must fit over the previous layer easily be restricted.
You should also have a bulky jacket or liner that fits easily over all of the above mentioned layers.
Polypropylene, polyester or wool work best.

Third layer (provided by Explore The North)

The third layer is often called the shell layer. Like the previous
layers it provides insulation, layer should be waterproof.
A jacket with hood, pull over pants (preferably with leg zippers),gloves/mittens, and gaiters make up this layer. They must all fit easily over the other layers. Pack boots are provided and you should have 1 to 2 sizes bigger than your normal shoe size, the air insulates.
