Outermost layer may not be shell layer
I reverted as following:
Reverted from: The outermost clothes are called the shell layer as they are designed to block wind and/or water.
Reverted back to: The outermost clothes are called the shell layer in case they block wind and/or water.
Perhaps the text needs to be more clear that the outermost layer may not be a shell layer. Consider a sweater over a t-shirt. The sweater is not a shell layer garment because it doesn't block wind or rain. Sweater isn't a reasonable "shell" against anything. The second sentence of the paragraph attempts to make that point.

What is "active layer"?
Edit on 08:09,9 March 2007 by 188.8.131.52 claims that the term "active layer" means the inner layer. Based on some googling there doesn't seem to exist a good consensus on this term. For instance:
- DuPont has a trademark "DuPont Active Layer", with definition: "A 20 micron, soft, very breathable, waterproof, windproof and stretchable monolithic polyester film, intended for lamination to a support fabric." Clearly that's intended for the shell layer.
- https://www.secured-url.co.uk/adventurepeaks/acatalog/Mid_Layer_Clothing.html describes a jacket as following: "Women's wind resistant hooded full zip active layer. The jacket excels for year round mountain walking, with fully protective features and a balance of windproofing, warmth and breathability in a women's fit."
If there are no objections, I'll remove or rephrase the active layer mention.

best for warmth
The article has said different things about whether multiple thin layers or one thick layer is better for warmth. One could construct arguments for either, but without a source for either, that issue must be left out until we find a reliable source. Ccrrccrr (talk) 02:31, 2 January 2012 (UTC)
