Clothing for riding on sitski

Several layers of thin, warm clothing are appropriate for a person who rides on a sitski

The user has technical underwear, fleece clothing and Gore-Tex trousers and jacket.

Authors comments
The user prefers several layers of thin clothing; thick sweaters make it difficult for him to move. Most people who ski actively stay warm all the way down to -15/20 degrees C.
People who freeze easily can put a heat pack in each boot. The heat pack maintains a temperature of about 50 degrees C and lasts for a few hours at -15 degrees C. When the heat pack cools off it can be boiled for about 10 min in plain water. The manufacturer says it can be recharged about 1000 times.
