In Finland we have this pre-spring season before the actual spring starts. This is the time to enjoy the last of the snow and bask in the fresh sun. You don’t have to worry about mosquitos or other blood-sucking bastards yet. By layering your clothing you'll get the most out of this season. Here are a few pointers.

Merino wool underneath

Merino wool is a lovely material next to your skin. It won’t itch or scratch your bits to bits. It also dries fast and isn’t an utter bastard when wet either. If a bit higher price tag makes you uncomfortable, we do have other options as well. Check out our underwear department. You can also find a mid-layer Merino wool shirt and long johns for those good ol’ cold-as-hell spring days there. When you have two Merino layers underneath, you can even survive a traditional nuclear winter, until the radiation gets you.

Good boots and socks

Cold creeps in like a fiendish ninja if your footwear is cold or wet. In snowy spring weather, you should wear tall enough boots. And a waterproof material or waterproofing the material keeps the water on the nicer side of things. When you put on good Merino wool socks or two pairs if needed, life can be called wonderful again.

Windproof/warm outer layer

The pre-spring weather can vary a lot. Sometimes it is gentle and calm and the sun caresses your delicate features. Sometimes it rains, snows, or downright pisses on you in a very unpleasant way. And occasionally it is windy as hell, and the temperature can drop below the point of no return. Therefore the only sensible advice is to dress according to the weather. Windproof and warm is usually a very good combination. Our Woolshell is a fantastic option for those cold days. Breathable but still warm.

Suitable camping gear

It is a whole lot nicer to do things outdoors when you proper gear for the task at hand. If you want to sleep outdoors, get a warm sleeping bag plus sleeping pad, and a shelter that protects you from the hostile elements, and you won’t die prematurely. And select the rest of the gear based on your activities. A decent axe is of course suitable for everything.
