Clothing Layering System:
Level 1- Light Weight Base Layer
Level 2- Mid-Weight Base Layer
Level 3- Heavy Weight Base Layer (fleece)
Level 4- Wind Jackets (Ultra-Thin Barriers)
Level 5- Weather Resistant Outer Layer (Soft Shell)
Level 6- Water Repellant Outer Layer (Hard Shell)
Level 7- High Loft Outer Layer
Level 7 can often be worn right over individual armor or load bearing equipment, some versions are also designed to be used in lieu of a sleeping system, so the wearer can don them, get warm, and sleep in them in the field. This reduces gear taken to the field and makes fighting from a sleeping system much easier.
The layering system of clothing is designed around the concept that fabrics pushing moisture away from the body will keep you warm while in motion, once you go static you can don waterproof or warm layers to insulate yourself. While in motion, you will not be 100% protected from precipitation, however, at the same time you will not have water retention in your fabrics that will keep you cold.
We hope this helps you in your selection for cold weather outerwear.
