How to Dress in Really, Super Cold Weather!

How to Dress in Really, Super Cold Weather!

Hiking in the snow

It's that time of the year! Time to go out hiking in the snow! There's really no better time of the year for exploring all that the outdoors have to offer! Snow, great photo shots, and just an all around fun time! However, there is one little problem! If you're not used to the cold, it can get, well, cold! Dang cold!

So what's the best way to dress to have fun in the snow without getting frost bite? Layers and good outdoor gear! That's it! Well let's discuss this further!


Layers can definitely be your friend. Layers upon layers! It will be very difficult for the cold air outside to push through all those outer layers of clothing.

Yes! Wear thermals underneath, sweats, pants, etc. The only problem is, depending on how cold it is outside, you're gonna have to wear a lot of layers! In fact, if it's below 30 degrees Fahrenheit, you'll probably have to wear like, 5 layers! That's not just impractical, it's also very difficult to even get 5 layers of clothing on your body! Let alone walk around comfortably. 

Good Outdoor Gear

This then brings us to our next solution.

Truth is, nothing can beat good outdoor gear. It's true they are gonna be pricey but you'll be thanking me when you realize you only have to wear one layer of clothing and still be warm! Thank the gore-tex gods!

Not just that but a lot of the good gear is made with mobility in mind! Not only do you not have to wear layers but you also can get good clothing that allows you to walk and move freely without 5 layers of clothing bogging you down and making you feel like you're stuck in a bush!

Outdoor Gear Recommendations

So without further ado, here is my list of recommendations for some of the best outdoor gear you'll find for hiking in the snow:

Well that sums up my recommendations. Get a good jacket, pants, boots, gloves, a beanie, and a balaclava and there will be little the environment will be able to throw your way that you couldn't handle! Let me know what you think in the comments and below!
