  1. I think electrically heated clothes have a function just not in survival. I see the main benefits of them in work clothes, as they can be slimmer, which leaves you with more dexterity. So if you are a tradesman, who has to work in relatively cold condition, maybe give a try. And nowadays almost any tool brand will have some, which can be used with their tool batteries.

  2. I live in northern Sweden (slightly south of the polar circle), and in the winter it can be as cold as -50°C/-58F, although a more average temperature is between -25°C to -30°C (-13F to -22F). After 13 years up here, I've apparently managed to figure out how to dress in winter (based on your video). The brands in the video are different from mine, but other than that, I dress in quite a similar way. My extreme winter clothes have a comfort temperature around -30°C/-22F (with just a thin base layer underneath), and my Pax Black boots with a removable inner boot of wool felt has kept my feet warm and dry in -38°C/-36F. Thanks for a great survival tutorial!

  3. Thanks for sharing. My son just moved to Northern Vermont and I didn't realize what real cold was like. Planning a trip to the Laurentians when they open up the border for some long distance dog sledding. Definitely realized that a Pennsylvania winter is nothing compared to real winters up north. Thanks to your video I got the right parka that I could afford (650). Got my real rabbit lined trapper's hat and I'm replacing that faux fur with real coyote fur on the parka and have already ordered a beaver pelt to make my own beaver mittens. And got my Sorel snow boots. Do you think I'll pass for a Canadian, eh? Hoping they open that border soon!

  4. Most of these guys wear an inner layer such as meriano wool. When it was around -25 in Toronto, I had no inner layer just a regular sweater from RW&CO and do a daily walk about 30mins to work in my Canada Goose expedition. Other accesories include Sugoi cycling gloves with fingertip cellphones and a Sugoi beanie. Pants were heattech layered khakis from Mark warehouse and they have served me up to -30 without warm socks for the shins. Shoes were Ecco Goretex hikers.

  5. Coyote (trapped / shot in the head) trimming is USELESS …. would you skin your dogs just to "look good" ?

    Go SYNTHETIC !!!!

    Don't encourage / support companies that have no consideration for animals, ESPECIALLY, knowing that other options are available ………

  6. Thanks for the tips! I'm looking out for winter wear, and I checked reviews of the Merrell Chameleon Thermo 8 Tall boot. Unfortunately Amazon UK reviews of this boot are putting me off i.e. boots get holes after 5 months, another after a year (not what I'd expect of this brand at this price), shoe laces keep untying themselves, slippery on wet rocks or when wet, so wondering at its grip on ice. Is this the best, mid-range priced winter boot that you can recommend? I'll check out your videos to see if you have other winter wear / boots recommendations.

  7. I find that cold is not a very static thing. I live in Denmark, and we've had some pretty warm Winters lately, but fortunately, we finally got a bit of classic Winter this year with minus 10 deg Cel. in the day and minus 16 in the night and ½ meter of snow some places. And then there's the everlasting cold wind that add's a chil factor. And here in Denmark, it's usually a very wet air and cold. So feels fairly colder than the scale says. When I am in mountains, say the Carpathians, during Winter, it can get really cold with minus 30-40 deg. cel, but usually just minus 15 deg. cel. But air is dry and feels less cold. And less wind. Only on top of mountains, it's windy. But for walking in mountains from top to top, these jackets are too warm as long as you move. Once you stand still, you'd want a propper down jacket like mine or yours. I have two old Canada Goose Expedition and they have served me well. No cold, no problems. Just work like they should. Btw. I always clean my Canada Goose jackets myself. I don't trust anyone in cleaning them correctly.
    But I've read about recent problems with production quality, sewings and fabrics being of lesser quality than before. That was some 4 years ago. Are they better now? Or did they become a fashion company? I want a heavy duty Snow Mantra, but not if they have skipped on quality. Maybe they've corrected this? Otherwise, I'll get an OSC heavy duty Mission. Why? I always feel cold, as I am slim and do not have a lot of body fat. Blood circulation etc. is fine and I am fit for fight always.
    Years ago, I wore some military wool sweaters with patches on the elbows, but they could destroy the liner in a not so good jacket. all the fashion crap is just that – crap. It's fine in a studio, not outdoor.
    One thing that I do wonder about on commercials for down jackets, is when you see the model putting a pen into an inner pocket at chest height. That can be fatal if you stumble and/or fall.
    Btw. I ALWAYS wear two layers of socks but leave room for air. In the dessert or in the mountains – always two pairs: a think one inner and a thick one outer. I tighten my boots pretty much up and a bit looser down. Take care of your feet, and they'll take care of you. Never had wet feet. Just super comfortable always, even crossing rivers, gletchers, mountain tops, deserts, city streets Summer or Winter. As sioon as I get indoor, in a tent or in a cabin, I dry my clothes and boots. And I always protect my sleeping bag from water and humidity in general.
    No silly cotton clothing at all. I learned that the hard way many years and many trips ago on my second mountain trip. Crap – wet – wouldn't dry. I brought extras, but never used that after that trip. Only merino, plastic and wool. I always bring minimum 1 pref. 2 extra toque's (thick beanies), apart from the other gear. I often use gaiters in snow. Btw. on my job, we repeat first aid, cpr and gunshots, broken bones and head trauma aid every third year. I work with children and also teach. Anyway, just my two cents.
    Thanks for your videos.
    Stay warm, dry and safe.


  8. Super duper advice. I loooove polypropylene. I can run or play a long ball hockey game in very cold weather and not get wet from sweat at all. It is the best for moisture wicking. You must wear it against your skin everywhere from head to toe. I recommend a full balaclava. I love turtle necks. My last suggestion is a big husky or malamute or Newfoundland dog to snuggle with at night if sleeping in a tent. What do,you think of real sheep fleece. I have a sheep fleece hat, that is the warmest hat I ever had.

  9. No!! Canada Goose parkas are good to well below -30 -50 windchills. I am testimony to this. Almost too warm and these parkas
    can only be worn in minus temps. Also I have full sheepskin gloves that rival beaver but half the cost. Watch what you promote! And sheepskin foot liners are a lifesaver for your toes!!
