How to Buy Thermal Underwear


How to Buy Thermal Underwear. What you put against your skin has a lot to do with your comfort and safety in the wilderness. Buy wisely.

Things You'll Need

  • Thermal Underwear
  • Waterproof Hats
  • Waterproof Hiking Boots
  • Waterproof Jackets
  • Waterproof Pants
  • Waterproof Gloves
  • Waterproof jackets

Determine what thickness or "weight" to buy, depending on conditions and activity: the colder the temperature and the less activity you'll be engaged in, the thicker the underwear.

Look for "wicking" underwear - material that spreads out moisture and dries quickly.

Ask about odor retention. Older materials such as polypropylene tend to get stinky; several newer materials hardly retain any odor.

Find materials that are easy to care for - that is, those that are machine-washable and, preferably, machine-dryable.
