We already had some sub-zero F temps this winter, but living 10 blocks away from Lake Superior had insulated us from the worst of it. No so this weekend! -10 F today on my way to work. Midday and it's only warmed up to 4 F.

As much as I like hiking and snowshoeing... I'm sure glad I don't have to go outside and sleep in this! :D

No disagreement there!

I've been testing the advice of some folks in the winter laying threads lately, and have started off wearing a lot less than I usually would this time of year for day hikes. Fun to test the base layer plus hard shell method with windchills of -30 F! At least, it's fun as long as I continue to jog in place once I get back to the car. :)

Low temp -8F, high temp +6F, bright sun and no wind ... yahOO, January come early this year!.

Thin X-Static base (top and bottom), REI Sahara pants, old and well worn 100wt fleece jacket, mid weight watch cap. suitable hand and foot wear and a hooded unlined nylon shell ... too much clothing for shoveling snow even at a leisurely pace.

Brings back fond memories of my childhood in Northern Michigan. We loved it as kids, but I sure wouldn't want to spend my winters in it now.
