(TacticalNews.com) – An emergency can happen anytime and anywhere. However, when you leave your home, you’re survival is often restricted to little more than the clothes on your back. As such, dressing appropriately is vital.
Rule number one is that you should always dress in layers; you can always take a layer off if you become too warm, but you cannot add layers that you don’t have. That being said it’s essential to wear an inner layer, two middle layers and an outer layer in colder climates. Good footwear makes a huge difference; you want something that will keep your feet warm and dry but is also already broken in.
A waterproof jacket is best to use as an outer shell to keep you dry — because if you’re not dry, you’re usually not warm. Wool wicks moisture away from your body, so it can keep you warm even when it’s wet, making it a great insulator.
Head coverings are also important as most of the body’s heat escapes through the top of your head. While a hat with a wide brim is best, something is better than nothing, especially when you’re trying to survive.
