Thank you for the opportunity to test out Gator-Skins in Afghanistan. We operate in some of the worst and deadliest environments the country has to offer. The weather is very unpredictable, and at anytime can catch you off guard. Yesterday was 69 degrees and sunny, today it is 22 degrees, 40 knots wind, 90% humidity and 4″ of snow on the ground. I use my Gatorskins thermal shirt next to my skin, then layer up with heavy Carhart overalls. My partner wears shirts underneath his with the Skins on the outside. Both ways, it blocks the wind and cold from getting to your core. I highly recommend Gator-Skins to anyone looking to stay warm and dry in mild or the worst weather mother nature can throw at you! Remember, our best Americans protecting this country, are not in America…..
