February 19, 2018 at 3:54 am Ycreek Reply Do you take the spindrift along for glassing? I get that you sweat going uphill(even in 10 degrees). But, when do use the spindrift? What about the super down?

Nice review. February 19, 2018 at 4:54 am Toby Ben Reply If a base layer takes longer to dry it means it will increase evaporative cooling, ie it makes you cooler due to the conductive properties of liquid (in this case body sweat). When a base layer dries quicker it reduces evaporative cooling due to less moisture in the garment, = less conduction = less evaporative cooling = you will feel warmer. Wool is a unique fiber in that it is hydrophilic (absorbs moisture), well actually it does have hydrophobic properties also but not enough space to explain February 19, 2018 at 5:27 am Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
