We’ve listed below some of our Top Tips for Dressing Right for Winter Adventure:
- Dress in layers so that you can easily add or remove layers throughout the trip to regulate your temperature as needed.
- Bring more layers that you think you’ll need, you can always remove them during the trip.
- water resistant / warm Winter Jacket.
- Nylon or Winter Snow Pants.
- Comfortable, loose fitting pants, they even sell insulated pants
- Long underwear, an easy replacement for long underwear is flannel PJ pants.
- Long sleeve undershirt
- a warm outer layer shirt
- warm, WOOL socks, why wool, because wool is warm, even when wet.
- Winter Boots. Not dress-up boots but WINTER BOOTS.
- Warm Mittens or Gloves ( mittens are warmer than gloves, plus your fingers will have some friends to play with)
- Warm Wool Hat. If it is extremely cold you can get a hat that even covers your face, great for robbing banks.
- Scarf. A long wool scarf can make you extra warm.
- Bring a pair of shades… Yes, it’s even brighter in the winter!
- You know yourself best, if you get cold easily bring extra layers.
- We will be exercising so you will most likely get quite warm out there… Don’t forget to remove layers before you get too hot!
- Ladies, no yoga pants, unless they are being used a your under layer and topped with warm pants or snow pants.
- Guys, no running shoes. We are tired of watching you freeze.
