Wild Things has been designing technical apparel for the past 35 years. Our team is composed of individuals with significant experience in the field in military and recreational activities. While we exist to sell our excellent products we thought it would be helpful to provide a source of clear information for how to use technical apparel to reduce the impact of weather – temperature, precipitation, wind – on your outdoor activities.
Listed below are some sources of information – some we have written ourselves, some we did not. We hope you find this helpful. Please feel free to add your own experiences, thoughts and sources of information. Be sure to check back as we will be adding more internal articles each month! Stay WILD!
