Oh baby, it's cold outside!

...but no worries. The key to staying warm, as I've mentioned before, is layering, and taking advantage of the technology available.

GEN III ECWCS - Extended Cold Weather Clothing System - is based on the layering systems used by the Army and mountaineering professionals, and is designed to keep you warm and comfortable in extreme cold conditions.

Level 1 - a lightweight undershirt and leggings worn next to the skin, made of a highly breathable fabric with moisture-wicking abilities, dries quickly to providing cooling in warmer weather, and works as an insulating base under other layers without adding a lot of bulk. Black or sand, sizes Small - 3XL. Level 1 balaclava, also available.

Level 1 Top, Bottom, or Balaclava

Level 2 - a mid-weight top and bottom, also has moisture-wicking properties and provides another layer of insulation in colder climates. Black or sand, sizes Small - 3XL. Level 2 balaclava, also available.

Level 2 Top, Bottom, or Balaclava

Level 3 - a fleece jacket that can be worn as a liner for level 4, or as the top layer in milder weather. Black or foliage, sizes Small - 3XL.

Level 3 - Jacket

Microfleece watch cap - I know I can't get through winter without one. One Size in black, coyote, or foliage.

And don't forget our tried and true Flight Jacket.

Stay warm this season!
