Didriksons Heat Level Chart


The Heat Level stands for the garments ability to protect you against low temperatures.  A high level number has a better ability to isolate the heat and keep you body warm than a low level number.  What effects the level is the garments insulation volume, if its waterproof and/or windproof and how much of your body the garment covers.
