How To Layer For Outdoor Activities

The TERREX Layering Guide

When we’re out in nature, layering is important. Layering allows us to add and remove clothing so that we can respond to the weather as it changes. From lightweight base layers, to outdoor fleeces to waterproof jackets, we’ve designed a flexible wardrobe to keep you comfortable in every situation.


The adventures we have in nature come in all shapes and sizes. And nature can throw anything at us. The TERREX Adventure Wardrobe is versatile layering designed to be the perfect remedy to that - keeping you layered up, ahead of nature’s next move.

Four layers of clothing make up the wardrobe - the Base layer, Mid layer, Insulation layer and Outer layer. These are available in multiple colourways across three main sports: Trail, Hike and Snow Sports.


"I always need to feel prepared in the mountains…which is why layering is so important.”

Michi Wohlleben, adidas TERREX mountaineer


Every adventure starts from a solid basecamp. The base layer is worn on activities of all intensities to lock away moisture, feeling like a second skin. The mid and insulation layers are designed for lightweight, reliable warmth without restricting freedom of movement. The windproof and waterproof outer layer keeps the weather out and keeps you feeling dry.

Our layers work best together, each fitting seamlessly under the next. But we know that everybody responds to conditions differently, so each product also excels in its own right. Which ones will you take with you on your next adventure?

With the TERREX Adventure Wardrobe, whatever your summit, you’re good to go.

HOW TO WEAR BASE LAYERS: TEMPERATURE MANAGEMENT. BY MERINO

However you connect with nature, keeping control of your core temperature as you move towards your summit is always high priority. As part of the TERREX Adventure Wardrobe, TERREX has launched three new base layers designed for versatility on trails, hikes, slopes and beyond. Made to manage temperature and move sweat away from skin, choose from 100% merino wool base layers, or a lighter merino & tencel synthetic fibre blend. Each base layer is designed to sit comfortably on skin, so you can focus on enjoying the outdoors. Merino wool adapts to your changing body temperature, helping to keep you feeling warm when it’s cool, and cool when it’s hot.

“My favourite piece is definitely the merino base layer - an item I believe should be a staple in everyone’s cupboard. It’s incredibly versatile, durable and comfortable.”

Toni McCann, TERREX trail runner

MID LAYERS MADE FOR EVERY ADVENTURE

When you’re out in nature seeking adventure, the weather can always turn. It’s one of the main reasons why packing a flexible and lightweight layer of warmth is so essential.

As part of the 2023 TERREX Adventure Wardrobe, TERREX has launched a new range of mid layers. Made in part with recycled materials, and engineered with FLOOCE material, feel comfortable all day on trails, hikes and and on colder snow days. Every layer is lightweight too, letting your body move freely whilst providing a layer of warmth when required.


“The TERREX tech Flooce has perfected the balance between insulation and moisture-wicking, meaning even if your are running on wintery trails, you can do so at a comfortable temperature.”

High or low intensity, rain or shine, the insulation layer is an essential wardrobe item that will respond when you need it most.


TOUGH IN TOUGH WEATHER: THE OUTER LAYER

Let’s face it, sometimes we set foot into the great outdoors knowing the weather that day will be challenging. Even the clearest of starts to a day can, in what seems like moments, turn into sharp and fast winds, horizontal rain, monsoon-like downpours and driving snow.

That’s why an outer layer is so important to either wear when you set off or keep close to hand in your rucksack. The final layer in the TERREX Adventure Wardrobe, the outer layer is designed to protect you from wind, rain and snow across Trail, Hike and Snow Sports.

There’s a whole range of jackets designed to meet your outdoor needs. Be fully waterproof with GORE-TEX or rain-resistant with RAIN.RDY protection. When you’re on the trails, keep the winds at bay in a shell that’s wind-resistant but breathable too, so moisture and heat can escape naturally, stopping you from overheating.

And for head-to-toe protection in the snow, the TERREX TECHROCK 3L GTX Bib Pants keep you feeling dry.


“The TERREX XPERIOR GORE-TEX PACLITE RAIN JACKET is my favorite piece from the adidas Terrex adventure wardrobe. The fit allows me to move freely when I climb or hike and protects me from wind and rain when I fly my glider.”

Michi Wohlleben – adidas TERREX mountaineer
