Good article. Report
I made a promise to train outside come January rather than cozy warm on my treadmill... so dreading the cold!!! This article had some good advise for me... gotta just such it up! Report
Good information if one can afford specialty clothing Report
I’m surprised the article didn’t specifically mention merino wool. It’s more expensive than regular wool but far and away the best at wicking moisture and keeping you warm. Plus it’s lightweight and not itchy. I love my merino wool snowboarding socks. Extra bonus, they’ve got cushioned bottoms so I use them for winter walking/jogging. Report
Good info. Report

Taking two steps forward and one step back is still progress! Report

The article is just like the coaches speech at the first meeting the parents and students attended for students joining the cross country ski team. All my children were on it. It is right on if you will be exerting yourself extensively in the cold temperatures. I define cold temperatures as anything below 20F. I work part time outside in the winter and spring (which includes backcountry snowshoeing) and wear the clothing mentioned even if it is as warm as 30F-35F because I may work up a goodly sweat and need to wick it away from my body. Wool is my favorite material for socks. I prefer a very tight knit micro fleece for a hat. It is so soft and breaks any wind. Head south? Would have if I could have last winter. This winter is much better so far. Report
Give me a nice soft cotton bottom layer, please - synthetics are stinky and I hate the feel of them. Report
I will take the south over the north any day. It's just too cold and too much snow. Report
I liked the article, but what about foot attire? I was hoping for more information on foot gear like on page six of the '10 Dead-of-Winter Workout Motivators.'

I don't get it I grew up in Canada and WE generally don't wear all these fancy expensive fabrics for underwear. Stanfield's is still selling a lot of their cotton underwear and it WORKS FINE. Report
I am sooo glad I live in Hawaii. Report
I discovered a layering trick 30 years ago. Fishnet underware, then your synthetics, then wool or wool blend. A hard hat liner under a ski cap works with any kind of cap and gives that extra layer. Report
LOL I beat the cold weather by going to Florida for the winter! Report
