Outdoor clothing

There is no bad weather, only bad clothing.
Layer up people, we are going to stay comfortable in the outdoors as we do Nature Therapy. We want moisture wicking fabrics like wool and polyesters that trap air even when wet to keep us warmer. We will avoid fabrics like cotton because it gets wet and stays wet and has no insulation. When it's wet and windy, we will use barriers the keep us dryer.
