The scope of this course is to provide clear and sound coverage of the current concepts, techniques, and challenges involved in the pursuit of exploring the backcountry and to provide a fundamental understanding of each topic covered. In this course we will cover the proper clothing you need to explore your world and immerse yourself into the wild. The course begins by defining why you need proper clothing and the importance of regulating your body temperature. From there, we will cover the different types of fabrics used and why they are special. Next, the course goes into how to apply a layering technique in order to maximize the desired effectiveness. Finally we will put all these elements together so you can build yourself an effective clothing system for your next outdoor adventure.
