2)- Preventing that environmental moisture touches your skin, causing a decrease of your temperature. This case is similar to the aforementioned, but there is a significant difference, nevertheless: in this last case, you also should avoid that your own sweat acts in such a way and at the same time, prevent outside water from penetrating your clothes.

Thus, by combining both requirements we can say that an efficient trekking clothing system should:

1)- Absorb and keep away your sweat.

2)- Repel outside water and moisture.

3)- Generate a coat of air which acts as a thermal isolator.

Even light and apparently fresh clothes, combined in this way, would produce a significant increase in the W factor of your clothing.

On the other hand, on warm regions, you should attempt to keep your body fresh and ventilated, avoiding excessive dehydration. Thus, clothes employed in such cases should sport a low W factor and contrarily to a common belief, should loosely cover the whole body. Traditional Arab garments are an example of this practice.

By exposing your skin to the sun, wind and environmental agents, your sweat more and thus, the speed of dehydration will be increased.
