What to wear in altitude?

An alpinist’s outfit, just like its equipment, greatly differs according to the season. It is of course of great importance to choose the right clothes for winter alpinism, when the weather is much less favourable than for summer alpinism. Temperatures below zero, wind, storms, snow, the weather in alpine terrain can be particularly rugged, dangerous, even deadly.

In the same way as for any other winter sport, and more generally for mountain clothing, it is a good idea to respect the 3 layer principle. To begin with, the base layer, which acts as a second skin, is very breathable, to directly drive away sweat toward the outside. Secondly, a mid-layer, or insulation layer, for instance a fleece, warm and breathable, to stay warm while wicking away moisture. Finally, a hardshell outer layer, waterproof and breathable, protecting you from the elements while letting the sweat evaporate. This outer layer will feature a performance membrane, such as the well-known Gore-Tex membrane, which offers a high protection level against snow and rain while letting your skin breath.

In addition to that, mountaineering clothing should meet other important criteria. First of all, it should be robust, as the environment you are in can take its toll on your gear. Indeed, it should be abrasion resistant, when rubbing against the rock. Keep in mind that your mountaineering outfit will be mistreated by your equipment. Your pants are not safe from the bite of your crampons for example. On the other hand, your outfit should offer total mobility as well. Mountaineering can be considered extreme climbing, therefore, it requires perfect freedom of movement. Finally, your outfit should be compatible with your equipment. For instance, your jacket should be compatible with a mountaineering harness, the latter being probably loaded with hardware, the hood of your jacket should be compatible with a mountaineering helmet, etc.
