  • I will take the south over the north any day. It's just too cold and too much snow. - 9/8/2013 6:31:50 PM
  • 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. - 1/28/2012 2:15:51 PM
  • I am sooo glad I live in Hawaii. - 1/28/2012 1:45:34 PM
  • 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. - 1/28/2012 8:27:44 AM
  • LOL I beat the cold weather by going to Florida for the winter! - 1/28/2012 7:16:08 AM
  • I've been biking to work through the winter. I love my Outdoor Research (OR) Helmet-clava. I wear it inside my bike helmet. It's completely adjustable, so I can choose whether to cover my face and head, or just use it to keep my neck warm. I also like the REI convertible gloves/mittens. They open up if you need the use of your fingers, but they still keep you warm. - 1/26/2012 10:00:14 PM
  • Thanks for this great information. I've been avoiding the outside because of the Winter cold. I want to change that, and this is just the kind of information I need to get started! - 12/10/2010 11:21:33 PM
  • The best "wonder" material? Wool !! It still keeps you warm when it's wet, it dries quickly, and as a bonus, it doesn't stink like synthetics! I wear thin wool baselayers by Smartwool, Icebreaker, Ibex, just to name a few companies. When it gets colder, I layer them. Thin merino wool (say, 180 to 200 micron) is as soft as silk, not itchy at all. Give wool a try. - 12/18/2008 10:52:43 AM
  • You are so right! I always wear a "Buff" when I do outdoor sports. I have one that's fabric only, and another that's fabric *and* fleece. They rock. - 1/17/2008 7:09:38 AM
  • Great article! One thing I'd add would be considering a balaclava for headgear. DH and I both have fairly lightweight ones and they've been excellent this winter. They adjust easily to cover the forehead and all the way up over my nose, but I can also push it below my chin if it's warmer or I need to breathe more. And if it's extra cold, I can always put a hood or hat on. We've been out in windy nearly 0 F weather, and my head is always warm! Peace. - 1/1/2008 4:53:50 PM
