Now that winter is in full swing and the cold weather is set to get worse, we’ve put together a few top tips on how to keep warm on site.

The right combination of clothing is a simple solution for keeping warm. Combining a base layer, middle layer and outer layer helps to maintain body heat, trapping warm air and increasing insulation. An ideal solution to suit the unpredictable British weather, ensuring you are prepared for all the weather eventualities that could arise.

Base:

The Scruffs base layers provide brilliant thermal insulation with thermal engineered fabric and close to the skin contact to wick away moisture.

Middle:

A fleece is ideal for a comfortable layer of insulation. The material traps air in the pockets between its fibres helping to maintain natural thermal insulation. Clothes that are made from cotton, wool or fleecy fibres are an ideal middle layer.download-min
