    first cold day of the year..in the teens where I'm at. Had 6 layers on up top(shirts) n 2 layers of pants..as I said in a previous post I HATE wearing a ton of clothes feel clostraphobic(sp)....j/w what everyone else wears to keep warm but not feel like the young kid from a Xmas story.
     
  2. Keeping my feet warm seems to be the key for me.

    Clock Sucker I handle a lot of packages

    I usually wear under armor pants, work pants, a long sleeve shirt, long sleeve work shirt, my winter jacket, 2 pairs of socks, and my arctic sport muck boots

    But I usually never use gloves, no matter how cold it is

    A base layer and pants. On top, a base layer, shirt, sweatshirt, jacket and vest. I also wear a neck gaiter and stocking cap.

    Next week, it will get below zero, so I might add a pair of knit longjohns on top of the base layer.

    For gloves, I wear a pair of knit liners inside of Mechanix gloves. I have 3 pair of each so I can have 2 pair on the defrosters and switch off if my hands get sweaty or cold.

    When it is cold and windy, I have one of those neck gaiter jobbies that is also like the hoodie part of a sweatshirt. It has to be really cold to wear that, as it is really warm, almost too warm if it is in the teens or warmer.

    Layers are the key.

    How can they say you cannot?????

    My bosses have no idea what I have under my costume and I am not doing a strip show so they can find out.

    I wear a UPS hoodie that was in the UPS catalog. I have heard that hoodies are a grey area and could go away as a 'flavor of the week.' I try to keep mine clean to stay off the radar.

    Wear a brown or black neck gaiter to cover it. I would be powerfully tempted to file a harassment grievance for supes complaining about dressing for the cold.

    I'll post pictures of my official ups sweater that bought in 97 that still wear sometimes and the one I had made three years ago that unofficial. The 97 one I call the relic when anyone asks me about it.

    For socks, I wear liner socks and then smart wool or similar over them. I have 200 gram, 600 gram and 1000 gram thinsulate boots that I wear depending on temps. I have 2 pair of each so that I start the day with a dry pair.

    I love wearing a sweater. I like to look a little different from the rest.

    I think they were in the 1st catalog I looked at when I started driving. I think it was $80, so I passed. Now I regret it.

    I honestly don't remember. My wife bought it for me. There was one with the liner and without. I have the one without and its warm as hell. I hate wearing a coat so both come in handy.
