Warmest Clothing Available?

Hi there,

Looks like this Winter is turning out to be freakin' cold ... (-9?!) ... and when the snow starts to hit my car is shelved, I'll be walking a lot to and from work.

I need to start looking for some REALLY warm clothes.

Jacket
My friend recommended getting this jacket by Canada Goose, it's suppose to retain heat and is really, really warm. Also I've heard about Nobis jackets being surprisingly warm, although pricey ...

Also what kind of gloves?
I tried googling for warmest gloves and it came up with finding "Thinsulate Insulation" gloves will keep your hands the warmest, is that true? Where would they carry these kind of gloves?
I wonder if MEC carries them?... I'll be walking a lot when the snow really hits this week so I would prefer some nice super warm gloves rather then the 1 dollar cotton gloves ... but I don't want to wear some super thick skiing gloves where I can barely hold a coffee mug...
I also got a suggestion to try E-Tip gloves from MEC, how are those?

Also this is kind weird, but I vaguely remember seeing a commercial on TV with this dude giving a tour of some visitors to a meat shop, he says "This is where we keep all the frozen food, it's negative blah blah inside so we can't stay inside too long!"... then he opens the door and there's a dude inside on his phone, it's an advertisement for some kind of under-clothing? Sort of like long underwear? I can't remember the brand... is that useful?

Advice plz!
Thx!

I recommend buying a milwaukee heated jacket. Uses same batteries as their cordless tools and lasts up to 6 hours per battery charge.



I also wear a set of paradox base layer, which can be found at Costco, before winter starts.

Marks work wearhouse has a lot of warm stuff for reasonable prices.

Haha yes I am weak against the cold! ... you guys are seriously not cold standing outside these nights?
I can't even imagine what it's like to be further east where it hits -40 ... probably never leave the house

I wish I could be in Hawaii right now!

My friend is in the prairies right now. Says it's -25 everyday

The key is layers. Thick material like wool will help retain heat. Scarfs will protect your neck and face. Gloves are optional since you have pockets (I don't wear them).

I'm not sure about jackets.. I don't really have anything specifically for the cold. I just layer up under them.

The higher Canada Goose and North Face parkas are wayy too warm for Vancouver. A couple of my friends have them and they say the jackets are too hot even if they're just wearing a t-shirt underneath.

I just bought a bunch of thermal stuff cause i'm going to work up in northern Alberta. Bought a thermal skiin tight HH shirt from atmosphere in Coquitlam center then a carhart thermal zip up sweater then planning on a carhart rain proof jacket. Just food for thought on what I will be wearing in -40 weather. atmosphere is a nice store maybe just go check it out.

Do it.
I have a Ralph Lauren vest.. pretty much the same as the North Face 700 vest. That with a hoodie and thermal long sleeve is all I need.

That with a toque and some random black dollar store gloves.. Though I think it may be time for me to upgrade to some Thinsulate gloves..

I'm confused, what is this "Manning up" you speak of? ... so you big boys just run around in -5 degrees half-naked because you are "DA MAN" ?! ...
This is the Fashion forum right?... did I accidentally post in the "I'M THE MAN" forum?

I'm just asking what would be some very warm clothing to wear in the colder seasons. Like what is the best bang for your buck jacket and gloves to purchase so I don't get a pair of $99 gloves that can't keep my hands warm when a breeze blows by. A really thick warm jacket is a hefty investment, some of these jackets go for $500-$700 each.

Don't get me wrong it's not like I'm gonna keel over the moment I step outside because it's negative degrees lol ... but I would prefer to be more comfortable without being cluttered by wearing layer upon layer of clothing. Hence the reason for this thread

Sorry I'm not the type to commute around in Speedos and flipflops this weekend like some of you macho men

na, you don't have to get $500-$700 jackets
The secret is layering!

just like snowboarding, you should definitely layer your clothing:

base layer
mid layers
outter layer

Personally, I don't like thick jackets due to their bulkiness. A nice merino wool or lambswool sweater could be a good alternative, with a slimmer jacket that has synthetic insulation.

As for gloves, maybe a pair of leather gloves with wool insulation. I find the gloves with fleece or Thinsulate are a little too thick.

^ but for example if you are going to the restaurant to eat, you don't want your sweater + hoodie + jacket/overcoat hanging off the back of your chair because they are blasting the heater haha ... so I was looking for a really nice, warm jacket that I can possibly use and just wear a t-shirt or dress shirt underneath because I was never a big fan of wearing thick sweaters.

Y u no Man up?

I wear sweat pants, long sleeve shirt + hoodie and I am fine.
A little shiver wont hurt. Most of the time you are in a heated building or heated vehicle anyways.

It is to late to find a nice winter jacket at this time, those come out around september.
your stuck with north face
