The layer next to your skin should stay dry and within a stable temperature range. However this is an area prone to high moisture due to the body's action of perspiration. Ideally your body wear should create a stable microclimate.
The insulating layer, between your thermals and shell wear, works by trapping warm air between your body and the coder air of the environment. The warm air is trapped within the synthetic fibres and in the air spaces in the fabric weave. By trapping warm air in your insulation layer and close to your skin, you stay warm in cold conditions. New technology synthetic fleece fibres are lightweight, very breathable and dry quickly. They perform beautifully, providing effective insulation.
Bodywear and insulation layers minimise heat loss in moderate conditions. In the wind and rainn you need to add an extra layer to protect the inner layers from getting wet and cooling down your body. Out layers work on two fronts. Firstly it prevents cold wind entering your insulating layers and secondly it prevents the rain from doing much the same. Breathable outer layers allow moisture vapour to escape from under the shell and at the same time stops water from entering.
It is important to keep your extremities protected as well.
