As winter slowly fades into spring, it’s essential to carefully layer your clothing to match the weather conditions. You don’t want to be overly bundled up and sweating profusely during the day, nor do you want to end up shivering after dark when the wind picks up. A good windbreaker shell can reduce heat loss and provide targeted ventilation, keeping you comfortably warm and forming an essential part of your layering system.
