The clothing hud

"Out in the wilderness, clothing is like armour against the elements. Wear layers to stay warm. And remember, wind is your enemy! Clothing offers different protection from cold and windchill. Your clothes can get wet from blowing snow or if you fall into water, which makes them ineffective and increases your risk of hypothermia or even frostbite. Keep your clothes as dry as you can! Finally, clothing can protect you from physical injuries as from falling or tangling with wildlife. Balance all these factors against the weight and mobility cost of your combined clothing."
— In-game description

Clothing is the term for items that can be equipped to provide bonuses to the player throughout their playthrough. Clothing does not have any requirements to wear. A player's total clothing bonus can be seen on the status screen.

Clothing attributes

Warmth

Temp icon.png

The Warmth bonus provided by clothing protects against the chilling ambient temperatures experienced by the player character. Each equipped clothing item contributes a specified number of degrees to the warmth bonus. The bonus is a constant effect that increases the "Feels Like" temperature. However, as clothing deteriorates, so too does the level of warmth it provides.

Windproof

Windproofness icon.png

The Windproof bonus provided by clothing protects against the additional heat loss experienced by the player as a result of windchill.

Only the outermost layer of clothing contributes to the player's windchill bonus. Layered clothing does not help mitigate the effects of windchill beyond the windproof rating of the outermost layer.

The windproof bonus only comes into effect when the player is experiencing a reduction in temperature due to windchill. The windproof effect only increases the "Feels Like" temperature by the absolute number of degrees of windchill affecting the player.

Waterproof

Waterproofness icon.png

The Waterproof bonus provided by clothing measures how quickly clothing becomes wet during outdoor activities. Clothes gradually become wet when it is snowing or when the player walks on ice. Clothes also become completely wet if the player falls through weak ice or passes through a traversable waterfall.

If clothing becomes fully soaked, then the clothing will start to freeze if ambient temperatures are below freezing. Clothes will gradually dry off when worn in warm interior locations, or when worn near or placed beside a fire.

As clothes become wet and frozen, their warmth and windchill protection bonuses diminish, and the clothing becomes heavier. Wearing wet or frozen clothing also increases the likelihood of hypothermia and can ultimately lead to frostbite.

Protection

The Protection bonus provided by clothing provides a reduction in physical damage that the player may experience through falls, burns, or attacks from wildlife.

Only the outermost layer of clothing contributes to the player's protection bonus. Layered clothing does not help mitigate the effects of damage beyond the outermost layer.

Mobility

Mobility icon.png

The Mobility penalty provided by clothing reduces the length of time that a player can sprint. The mobility penalty reduces the length of time a fully rested player can sprint by a given percentage. The penalty is cumulative when wearing multiple pieces of clothing that cause a mobility penalty (e.g., a coat that reduces mobility by 5% and a pair of gloves that reduce mobility by 4% would yield a total penalty of 9%).

Condition

Item condition icon.png

The Condition of clothing affects how well it does the job it's designed to do. As clothing deteriorates, it contributes less to the player's warmth and windchill protection: a piece of clothing at 50% condition rated for +2.0 degrees of warmth will only contribute +1.0 degrees.

Weight

Weight icon.png

The Weight of clothing is how much it weighs when carried or placed in a container. When worn, clothing only contributes 75% of its weight towards the player's carrying limit.
