Use the Klim Layering System to Stay Warm & Active For many outdoor enthusiasts, the layering system of clothing is most practical and has been around for some time now.  It allows you to change your clothing when you encounter a wide variety of weather conditions and activity levels.  This style of outfitting is most common among hunters and hikers in the back country areas, but is becoming more and more popular with mountain snowmobile riders.  The trend is starting to catch on more and more with all types of riders so they can adapt to the changing conditions of a long ride.  The premiere brand of snowmobile apparel for layering is, of course, Klim.
