  • from our atmosphere For the 90 of our body which is clothed wind will make no appreciable difference So take care of hands and feet and then ignore windchill Is it this simple Not quite C Windchill and Clothing Figures Windspeed can actually affect the insulation offered by our clothing in three ways by penetration by ingress and by compression Since most of the insulating value is provided by so called dead air in and between the layers of clothing any disturbance of that air will reduce its effectiveness Penetration Wind can come straight through our outer clothing fleece etc Uncoated woven fabrics are all permeable to some degree When they are used as outers for clothing direct wind penetration may lead to a substantial loss of insulation from our clothing layers At very low windspeeds this effect is likely to be negligible At 30mph a garment with a tightly woven cotton outer can lose up to 40 of its insulation value while a down jacket with a glazed downproof outer can lose up to 10 The message is obvious In cold windy places wear clothing with a totally windproof outer fabric Ingress Wind can also penetrate our defences via the gaps in our clothing When we walk or climb the movement pushes warm air out of every gap in our clothing This is called the bellows effect and is often very useful movement warms us up and this natural ventilation system can reduce the total insulating effect of our clothes by up to 50 and that s without any help from the wind But when conditions are extremely cold and windy this useful effect becomes a liability Not only are we leaking heat we want to keep we also allow the cold wind to force its way in down the same gaps and replace our warm dead air with something much less friendly So at neck wrists waist ankles all the places it s so good to ventilate when we re hot we must be able to close down tight when it s necessary Compression High wind can flatten our insulation and reduce its value Warm gear is usually thick and soft the filling whether down or synthetic having expanded to trap as much air as possible High wind speeds will compress the filling to some degree with an insulation loss of anything up to 15 Summary Windchill Clothing Add up all the figures and it looks scary Either we shouldn t risk going out in high winds or we need twice as much insulation as we thought we did It s so often the same with figures take them at face value and you re likely to end up with nonsense Experienced outdoor people already know the answer If you re going somewhere very cold and windy Everest Denali or Antarctica are all good examples then you need a totally windproof outer which reduces direct wind penetration to zero good closures at all points of potential wind ingress
