Recommended Winter Attire

  1. Wear loose fitting, lightweight, warm clothing in several layers (the trapped air between the layers insulates). Layers can be removed to avoid perspiration and subsequent chill.
  2. Wear outer garments that are tightly woven, water repellent, and hooded.
  3. Wear a hat (half of body heat is lost through the top of the head).
  4. Wear mittens that are snug at the wrist. Mittens offer better protection. Gloves allow your fingers to cool much faster than mittens do.
  5. Cover the mouth and nose with scarves to help protect lungs from cold air.
  6. Attempt to keep your feet as dry as possible. Wear wool socks.
