STAY WARM AND DRY NO MATTER THE WEATHER

Here in Maine, we know that preparing for weather during the changing seasons is all about expecting the unexpected. But no matter where you live, unpredictable weather and varying temperatures can make dressing for the outdoors feel like an impossible task. To make things easier, we’ve narrowed it down to the three key layers you need to stay warm, dry, and ready for anything.

Up First: The Moisture-Wicking Base Layer

Provides comfort and breathability

This is your most basic piece. Look for moisture-wicking fabric and features like SunSmart technology, which offers ten times more sun protection than a plain white tee.

Next Up: The Midweight Layer

Adds warmth without weight

The second layer is all about adding a little warmth without adding weight. A fitted fleece jacket provides a soft, cozy layer that sits close to your body and seals out cold air. Plus, it’s still light enough tuck into a backpack or tie around your waist when you’re not wearing it.

Lastly: The Lightweight, Weather Protection Layer

Protects you from the elements, including rain and wind

For temperamental weather, the final layer is the most important. Look for a water-resistant jacket with light insulation or a warm lining. While the shell repels water, the interior will provide additional warmth to ward off that extra chill without adding too much weight. That way, you can combine it with your other layers and you’ll be prepared for any weather you encounter!
