Heat & Moisture Management System
When you overexert yourself the body creates heat, which in turn creates moisture to cool the body down. Our smart Heat & Moisture Management System is engineered to work hard so you don't have to. Every breathable component works like a thermostat to allow excessive heat and moisture to escape. You will keep warm and dry and spend less time shedding layers than with conventional clothing.
The Base Layer is the first layer and closest to your body. Its purpose is to help keep you warm, but more importantly to keep you dry. This clothing layer should be designed to wick moisture away from your body. The breathable, polyester Sweatbuster Tee is ideal for this layer and will eliminate the heaviest sweat, keeping you cool and dry.
The Middle Layer is designed to insulate your body. This clothing layer should keep warm air in close to your body, yet allow it to circulate so you don’t get too warm during levels of high activity. Of the three different layers, this one will vary the most depending on the persons activity level, combined with their level of fitness. Wind, sunlight and outside temperature will also factor into how much insulation the person will need in the middle layer. The Better Than Flannel Shirt or the Better Than Fleece Pullover by FIVE ROCK® are perfect for this middle layer. If the mercury really takes a dip, you can add them both to your layering strategy for extra warmth and comfort.
The Outer Layer or Shell is designed as a water repellent and windbreaker. This layers job is to keep you dry and to shield your body against penetrating winds. This shell should be breathable, to help get rid of any moisture you generate through sweat yet tough enough to keep out the elements. The FirstChoice, nylon oxford jacket from FIVE ROCK® is the answer to your outer layer. This waterproof, breathable, ultra tough jacket will shield you from the rain, muck and wind.
