Some do but not the same kind that you like.


Listen, question. With your..........issues....... with colder weather where did you grow up? Anywhere in the NE or into the Midwest you shouldn't be having trouble figuring out what to wear.

If you're walking you might want to skip jeans and have something in wool. Coats are really easy today. I just got a new Columbia one from Cabela's that is basically a very thin but warm ski jacket, I think it's called Omni-Tech or something similar. That is replacing a GuideGear parka from the same vendor that is Thinsulate based.

Here's what I would have worn today if I'd been goose hunting (high predicted at 16, low was 8 at 5AM:
4 in 1 Thinsulate parka
Thinsulate pants
Flannel/chamois shirt
polypropylene long underwear
polypropylene Expedition socks
Thinsulate boots (800 gram)
Thinsulate gloves (40 gram)
I probably would have put small chemical warmers in the boots.

The above would have kept me warm most of the day not moving around much.

Coastal South India in the city of Chennai at 13.5 N. Immigrated here 3 years ago for college and lived near a busy train station in Chennai as a child. Trains have been my love since I was 2 years old. I am OK with all kinds of trains. Fast, slow, passenger, freight, local, and Transcontinental. You name it and I have seen it .

Here is our year round climate:

Ok, so tropical or close to it.

I'd skip the short sleeve shirts in this weather, get a heavier long sleeved one, maybe flannel or chamois (be aware they can be somewhat pricey).

Good wool or polypro socks.

Cotton is really too thin (jeans) to stand up to wind and if it gets wet it will steal heat from you like nobody's business. Some people call cotton clothes, especially jeans, blue killers. You can get jeans with a lining, my oldest son works outdoors quite a bit and swears by them.

As someone mentioned layering is important, something that wicks moisture away from your body. Again, cotton just gets wet and stays that way.

I realize, as I'm being superior here, that I grew up in a colder climate and likely spend more time outdoors than you do so please excuse the tone.

I think this sailed over Adi's head like an Eli Manning pass.

And the pass gets intercepted by Jerod Mayo. Next drive, 6/6 75 yard drive by Brady for the game winning Touchdown. Clutch Recapture just the way I like it .

OK, I didn't realize you'd only lived in the U.S. three years. I apologize for my earlier snarkiness.

Not at all, but I never lived in a slum. As shocking as it may sound, there are a couple good things one can learn from slum life in India. Crisis management with very little resources available is one very useful skill. The longer you live in a place, the more you will come to appreciate the positive aspects of your surroundings.

Many people in Indian slums are not poor by choice, they were pushed there by the stupid caste system and are prevented from moving up the ladder. Corruption in Educational institutions (which rarely occurs in the US) is the main reason I moved to the US for college. Caste system has its hand in college fees payments at Indian Universities and Wreaks havoc. How Primitive .
