Extreme Layering: Clothing for all Weather Conditions

Wild weather coming? We've devised a perfect system for every condition.

Extreme Cold

Our testers faced raging blizzards, pounding hail, frigid temps, and 60-mph winds to select these top clothes.
We get all warm and fuzzy just thinking about them.

Extreme Heat

From the bottom of the Grand Canyon to the top of sunshine-pounded Colorado peaks, stay cool and comfortable with this ultralight system.

Extreme Rain

Don’t let a crappy forecast keep you home for the weekend. Just pack this deluge-tested system.

Extreme Versatility

For all-purpose performance year-round, this layering system works overtime through any weather.
