What do you wear in the Arctic?

To work safely in the polar regions it is important to wear the right clothing and have the best equipment. Today, we have a good understanding of how the human body works in the cold. With a knowledge of the properties of different materials we choose clothes made from a wide range of man-made and natural fabrics.
