- ECWCS stands for ‘Extended Cold Weather Clothing System’ and was developed by the U.S. Military to provide it’s soldiers with a clothing system to get them through any weather situation they might encounter in the field. From sand storms to blizzards and rain this gear will take it all. The system is a layering system designed to keep it’s wearer comfortable through a wide range of temperatures and conditions. Layering allows for adding or removing of layers to adjust to the body’s temperature needs avoiding hypothermia which allows for peak performance in the field.
- The Base Layer is worn next to the skin by itself or in conjunction with other levels for added insulation and to aid in the transfer of moisture, they are designed to wick moisture and to provide protection from the elements. It is highly breathable, wicks moisture away from the skin and dries fast providing evaporative cooling in warmer weather and insulating in cool weather – all with less weight and bulk than in previous ECWS systems.
