Dressing Appropriately for Cold/Winter Months

Dressing warm

 

How does one survive being out in the cold?  Follow these simple steps to help keep your body warm if you have to be out in the cold.       

  • Wear layers.  Examples wear long underwear under your pants or wear coveralls or snow pants over your jeans.

  • Wear winter socks and winter shoes to keep your feet dry.

  • Keep your head and hands covered with a stocking hat and gloves.  If you will be outside for a really long time you may even want to consider hand warmers.

  • Invest in a good quality winter coat to help keep you dry and extra warm.

  • Remember you want to stay “warm and dry” not “hot and sweaty”. 

  • Dress appropriately for the activity you will be involved in.
