Would really appreciate it if anyone can recommend good stores/online stores that sell good thermal wear for adults and kids.

We are completely unprepared for winter should it decide to come early

THANKS A HEAP

I have had the best clothes from Lands End. They can be a bit expensive but the sales are great and the quality of clothing is top notch. I have thermal shirts, turtle necks and lined jeans that are going on 15 yrs old and are still looking great! On line ordering is easy and the company makes it very easy to return an item if need be.

That's a great suggestion and I believe you can do returns at Sears even if you order on-line. Another close by option is LL Bean in the Promenade Shops. For lightweight comfy underwear, I like cuddleduds, which you can buy in Bon-Ton and other department stores.

Before you go shopping though, I'll warn you that most people don't wear regular "thermal" underwear, they just wear layers like a t-shirt or long sleeve shirt and a sweatshirt. Once you get acclimated to the weather it won't feel so cold. My boys wear just t-shirts and sweatshirts until about November. I otoh, start wearing my turtlenecks and sweaters anytime the temps dip below 60 degrees. My daughter, who is finally home from Southeast China, was bundled up yesterday in a long sleeve shirt and a sweatshirt but lost layers as the day warmed up.

Look up online a company called Damart. We use to snowmobile in Quebec and we used this company's thermal wear. It was real thin and extremely warm. We used in weather as low as -35F and it really kept us warm.

Do you have a local Army/Navy surplus store? That's where I get all my heavy duty winter gear from. They carry quality goods, and usually are even cheaper than the big box stores.

That's a good idea, although I think of that kind of thermal wear as pretty heavy weight stuff. There's an army-navy on Grape Street in Whitehall.
