    He has absolutely no credibility when it comes to fashion. :)

    I wear shorts all year here
    I have to be a pusillanimous and wear a long sleeve shirt for about 3 months when it dips into the 20's and 30's

    Glad I don't have to spend $25 on gloves
    I buy a 10 pack at home depot for $10 and that lasts about 6 months
    Of course I rarely have to deal with the extreme cold

    Yeah, and? Is there more to this story? Not one person mentioned wearing black thermals and shorts with UPS socks.

    Yeah, it is what it is. By the time you get thermal base layers, full face hoods and boots or overshoes, $25 for a pair of gloves is a cheap date for feeling in your fingers at 10pm when it's single digit temps and negative wind chills.

    Damn I could not function in temps like that
    Of course 3 months of 95 plus is no picnic either

    It's only is that bad for a few weeks with a usual winter. If it's in the 20's it's not too bad. But summer here, 80's usually. 90 happens, but in short bursts. Easier to stay warm when you're constantly moving in the cold than to try and cool off when you're constantly moving with nowhere to hide from the sun IMO.

    The baselayer stuff is worth the money. I made it through the coldest days wearing this stuff with pants, a long sleeve shirt and vest only. I also had a really nice pair of Merrill boots that were awesome in rain and snow.

    I probably dropped $400 upfront on 3 sets of baselayer and the boots but it was a good investment that has lasted years.

    It's a shame that we can no longer deduct non-reimbursed job expenses or union dues on our taxes.

    I use the Neo's as well and love them. Have a nice pair of comfortable sneakers inside and feet stay dry and warm all day.

    Got a vest and beanie today, SOL on long sleeves. I took what they had, but the sleeves are like 3/4 length, and I'm sure I'll rip through them.

    What's the deal with Twin Hill being replaced? When will we be able to order stuff?

    I am a hot nature person I wore shorts, short sleeve and the vest for all of peak. One the only things that actually work on pkg. cars is the heater.

    In really cold winter weather in New England (single digits or below zero), layers you can easily put on and take off are essential. Thermal base layers, yes. But thin ones so you don’t overheat, which I think is worse than being cold. Buy the best quality boots you can afford.

    And don’t even think of driving up some ice-packed driveway where you’re truck gets stuck. Walk it off.
