    What we wear for cold weather hikes.

    Thursday, January 8th, 2015

    Layers!

    Say it with me!

    LAYERS!

    Not big bulky snow suits (unless you are someone that never seems to get warm, I guess).

    But base layers.

    smoky

    It was maybe 30 degrees when the above picture was taken, in the Smoky Mts.

    I am wearing a tank top, running pullover shirt, and a fleece vest on top.

    It was a lot of up hill and other then the fact I should have worn gloves I was comfortable.

    I like my vest because I can zip it up to my chin if I am cold and unzip it all of the way if I am hot.

    When it was really cold, I would throw on a pair of nice long underwear under my pants.

    ontopIn this pic, I opted for gloves and a hat, as well as a fleece jacket to go with my thermal shirt, vest and thicker pants.

    I think I put on long underwear as well.

    The boys are both wearing long underwear.

    My youngest never wore a winter jacket, just that hoodie with lots of layers underneath.

    I don’t like hoodies for my top layer because I can not regulate my body temp as easily.

    You don’t want to wait until you are covered in sweat to cool off in the winter.

    That is dangerous.

    I like jackets and layers with zippers so as I get hot I start unzipping it.

    coldweatherhikesHere is what I would typically wear on a cold weather hike(minus bra and underwear).

    Left to Right: Base Layer(I like to wear something that is a wicking material), Mid Layer(Vest), Outerwear(Pants, Jacket, Gloves, and Hat).

    I like wool socks for almost any weather but I do choose the ones geared more for the cold in the winter.

    I hope this helps someone get out and enjoy a winter hike!

    Winter is one of the most peaceful times of the year to hike in my opinion!

    Plus, NO BUGS!

    snowYou might just stumble upon a fairy land like this as well.

    Don’t wait until spring!

    Do you have any cold weather hiking tips?
