Otherwise known as the protective layer against the elements (snow, rain, wind, mud), the outer layer comprises of a mixture of different types of clothes which are focused on providing a balance between breathability and protection.
Mid layers are focused on heat insulation and breathability for function and is most commonly known as a soft shell or fleece (although not limited to these types of clothes). In a way, you can consider the mid layer to be similar to the base layer, however it does not need to be as comfortable as it doesn’t touch the skin as much.
The base layer is the first item of clothing that should be considered for comfort and function. The comfort is to ensure that the clothing does not irritate the skin for a long period of time. The function is to move moisture away from the body and ensure that humidity does not irritate the skin as well.
