Upper three-layer theory

Surely many most of you had read for some websites the famous theory of the Three Layers.

Consisting of. breathable layer, another that warm you up and finally one that protects us from inclement weather. Well, let’s explain this theory that any hiker should know properly to buy their hiking clothes.

First: The first layer should be breathable (synthetic materials), that is, a cotton T-shirt is totally forbidden. Why is that? Some will ask, and the answer is very easy: when you are trekking we sweat so that a breathable layer allows the perspiration to pass to the outside and dries quickly, providing more comfort; Also, if we sweat, the temperature is low and our layer glued to the skin does not transpire well, the feeling of cold will increase drastically.

Second: The second layer is the one that will provide us with shelter. Avoiding that the heat that our body produces escapes so that even if it becomes cold we keep warm.  Normally for this purpose polar jackets are used for the upper part of the body.

Third: Finally, We have the coating to protect ourselves from the outside. This coating will prevent the rain, snow, wind etc. from penetrating inside our body, but We will also need it to be breathable. Now We have many garments made with membranes that allow both. And there are many jackets that provide the second and third layer at the same time and are removable. Personally, I recommend any  jacket

Trousers & Footwear

For the lower part, in very low temperatures or in places with the every changing weather. It is also advisable to use the theory of the three layers. With a thermal mesh and hiking, pants would be covered. In more temperate areas it is sufficient to have a long or short trekking trousers, depending on the time of year.

The first thing to take into account the climate, for dry and hot climates must seek breathability. Instead of in humid and cold climates, waterproofness. Also, a wide variety of slippers and boots to choose from any online shop with hiking equipment.  So let’s explain the 4 main families we will find:

Mountain hiking shoes.

  1. – The trekking shoes Must be light and flexible, although they do provide the ankle restraint offered by the rest, ideal for short walks and without any accidents.
  2. – Medium-cane boots are also light and flexible. But also offer more ankle restraint, which is ideal for people with a tendency to ankle injuries and who do not have to bear much weight.
  3. – High-cane boots are perhaps, the most useful for long Trips. A very good grip of the joint allows us to carry enough weight in the backpack and go on rough terrain. With a low risk of spraining the ankle and injuring.
  4. – Finally, We have mountaineering boots. Indicated for very extreme situations such as approaches to very high peaks and land with ice and/ or snow peaks. For normal routes are too heavy and rigid. if you want to learn more about Best Hiking Boots and Shoes Trekking Peru | Tour & Adventure
