Date: Tuesday, February 5, 2013 Instructor: Jim Phillips Winter Safety Made Real – Part 4 WSMR Part-4 continues to deliver more solid facts on winter clothing performance. Jim teaches the true how and why of cold weather clothing, rather than a particular brand of something to buy. A correctly informed person makes good buy decisions. Understanding the truth about insulation is important for your cold weather comfort and safety. A key part of this is what materials to use and why, rather than just going with a glitzy ad or an in your face sales pitch. The clothing industry gives lip service to breathability, however, they actually have no idea about the actual science of how to stay dry and warm for extended periosd. The reality of staying dry in the snow has nothing to do with waterproofing. In fact, clothing that is waterproof or waterproof/breathable can be deadly. Instructor Profile: Jim Phillips is a nationally known speaker and teacher who has professionally taught thousands of classes all across the United States for 40 years. For a number of years prior to this career, his hobby was teaching cold weather safety & survival. Jim is a strong advocate of self-reliance living and family preparedness. He developed an entire preparedness curriculum by asking himself the question "What if?" and then setting out to discover what actually does and does not work. Above all else, he believes that attitude and practical knowledge is more critical to survival than having a bunch of "stuff." (“Who you are and what you know is far more important than what you have.”) . Learn More About Jim.
