Firstly you need to make sure that you are using good materials such as wool, fleece, polyester, and nylon. Second you need to layer your clothing into wicking, insulating, and waterproof laters. Third and probably most important is that you "shingle" your clothing. You tuck clothing in or leave it out in an alternating pattern so that it your precious body heat is trapped and snow and cold air are kept out. This is must have knowledge for survival situations whether in the wilderness or in a SHTF scenario.
