RECOMMENDED GEAR-HATS, BOOTS, GLOVES
A thick Rag Wool Hat
Lined Wool Gloves
Rag Wool Gloves with a furry nylon type liner work great even when wet. Rubbing in powdery snow will make sloshingly wet gloves dry enough to be comfortable again.
Wool Outer Mittens
Rag Wool Outer Mittens that fit around your wool gloves. These can double as extra socks if needed.
Extreme Cold Vapor Barrier Boots (Bunny Boots)
Bunny Boots is the widely-used nickname for the Extreme Cold Vapor Barrier Boots (Type II) used by the United States armed forces. The liner-less bulbous boots retain warmth by sandwiching up to one inch of wool and felt insulation between two layers of rubber and are typically worn with one heavy wool sock. These boots were originally developed at the Navy Clothing and Textile Research Center in Natick, MA USA for use during the Korean War.
