COLD SPRING 

“Sometimes It Snows in April”, Prince famously sang, and the best way to protect yourself from the cold is by using a system of three layersChoose a base layer with a tight fit against your skin on the inside. Add to this a middle layer, a jersey, and top it off with a wind-resistant outer layerA gilet or a jacket. The three layers combined work together to retain heat, keep out the wind and most importantly, wick sweat away from your body, so you don’t get cold.
