That's how you're ideally equipped for ski touring
Finding the right clothing for a ski tour is not always easy. During the ascent you are exerting yourself and sweating, during the final sprint to the summit the wind is blowing towards you, during the rest you cool down and during the descent you want breathability and insulation at the same time. But no matter what the conditions are and how individual your temperature sensation is, if you stick to one simple rule, you are guaranteed to find your optimal ski touring outfit: keep your body temperature at 37°C!
Your body is most efficient at a body temperature of 37°C. You can maintain this temperature on ski tours with a clever selection of products from our Modulario system.
All products from the KLIMA module are perfect as a first layer that lies directly on the skin. The KLIMA Pro products have already proven themselves as functional underwear over many years, as they have both warming and cooling properties due to their unique fibre structure. This is especially helpful on ski tours, as you sweat and need cooling on the ascent and need warming and insulating functions at low intensities (like on the descent).
TIP: If you sweat a lot during the ascent, you should at least take a base layer with you to change into. All KLIMA products dry extremely quickly, but with wet clothing it only takes a few moments in the cold or wind to cool you down.
The AERO products can be incorporated into your ski touring outfit in a particularly versatile way. These breathable shirts, hoodies and jackets can be worn as a base layer or mid layer, depending on the temperature and personal preferences, to regulate your body temperature.
TIP: Make sure that your ski touring clothes are as close to your body as possible, as this is the only way for the functional textiles to show their strengths and transport excess heat and sweat to the outside.
The VENTO module stands for breathable wind protection. Especially in winter, the wind can be particularly uncomfortable and make already cool temperatures seem even colder. Your goal should be to keep your body at 37°C, and with a VENTO product that protects you from wind while allowing excess body heat to escape, this is really easy to master.
TIP: 40% of your body heat is lost through your head. Therefore, especially in windy conditions, make sure that you protect your head sufficiently and keep it warm. You can find the right products for this below.
All CALDO products offer insulation and warmth in the smallest pack size. Even if you only want to go on a short tour, you should always take an insulating layer with you for safety's sake. Thanks to their functional construction, CALDO products keep you warm, but also let excess heat escape and protect you from light precipitation. A CALDO jacket is perfect for the descent, for example.
TIP: If you often suffer from cold fingers, you don't necessarily have to get the thickest gloves. First try to adjust your poles a little lower. You often suffer from "ice-cold hands" because the poles are too long and your hands do not get enough blood flow.
The SCUDO module stands for reliable protection against wind and precipitation. The water- and windproof products are suitable for ski touring when it is particularly cold or it snows intensively. Above all, SCUDO products make sense as protection at the summit or on the descent.
TIP: Only use waterproof clothing when it is really necessary. As little moisture as it lets in from the outside, as little gets out from the inside. This means that as soon as you increase your intensity, you will quickly start to overheat in waterproof clothing and your body will have to expend more energy (in the form of sweat) to cool you down again.
