Clothing tips:
In clothing try to avoid cotton, it easily gets wet and does not dry quickly. Synthetic materials are preferred.
Use the layering principle. You can add or remove layers depending on temperature. Don't forget comfortable and preferably woollen socks. And a spare pair.

First layer: this layer keeps you warm: short or long sleeve T-shirt from wooll or woollen/synthetic materials is recommended.
Second layer: woollen or fleece sweater for extra warmth.
Third layer: it is your protection from wind and rain: waterproof jacket and trousers are recommended.
