Keep moving, grow the beard out to keep the face warm and a wool cap on windy days. Hot coffee is also essential to warm from the inside out. Lol

Not too many cold days in my part of the country. Can usually get by with jeans and a long sleeve flannel shirt. Wear coveralls a couple of days a year.

Keep moving is the number one thing I do. I also layer up, and shed layers when I heat up. Hot coffee and a long beard get the job done during the Michigan winters.

Even here in SoCal it can get cold in the winter, not too often but when it does insulated boots, fleece beanie, layers for when it does warm up and like the rest hot coffee.

My old boss used to say "The heat is in the tools" While there is some truth to that, I suit up in layers with under armor, a nice hoodie, and I even slide those fireman boots over when I am trudging through the mess.

Re: Giveaway: Wolverine Outfitting You From Head To Toe


As the weather changes and it does here in Montana. I start layering my clothes, hoodies with vest, jeans . Gets colder maybe bibs or lined pants with heavier boots, flannel shirts , stocking cap. Still layer upper part as I tend to get to warm working in in cold weather. Also what helps is a nice heated work trailer with coffee.

It's not unusual to hit 40 below in my neck of the woods.

Keep moving. Catching a chill is easy to do and hard to get rid of in a cold environment.

Layer properly. Overestimate the cold. You can strip layers off easily but you'll be cursing if you need more and didn't bring any.

Bring replacement clothing. Sometimes you sweat through your socks then your feet freeze and mild frostbite can set in. Switch out your socks at lunch and it can save you a lot of trouble.

Become a finisher. Working out in the cold sucks.

Re: Giveaway: Wolverine Outfitting You From Head To Toe


The older I get the more I try to bid inside work for the winter. But always seem to end up outside.

I stay warm by dressing in layers mostly. Have tried just about everything in the last 20 years and have found what works best for me. One of the most important things is realizing you will have to take more breaks to go warm up through out the day. Just part of the process so you need to bid the jobs a little padded to account for it taking longer.

A lot of it is mind over matter. Kind of like getting in cold water, you just have to jump in. Just like you have to just get out there and get to work. Dress good and keep working and don't think about the cold and take a few extra coffee breaks and before you know it the day is almost over. A nice warm lunch also helps.

Layered clothing. While layers are good so you can peel a couple off if it warms up through the day, they're also more effective than a single heavy coat/pants.

Hot drinks help too.

Most effective of course, as long as you have the opportunity and the energy, is to keep moving. Nothing's much worse than being stuck doing some tedious task in one spot on a ladder.

1st. Wolverine is practically family being it's origins are my stomping grounds; family has been with the company as well.

When at work, I wear a pair of their DuraShocks boots with 3M™*Thinsulate™, wool socks, layered under armor with Jobman work pants. My upper is usually under armor, or some other layer, with a heavy jacket. Stocking cap or baseball hat, depending on how cold.

A good pair of socks and layers work for me. Can start at -20c in the morning and be 5c above at then end of the day so layers are key

Actually,I try not to take on large masonry jobs in winter weather. The winter protection needed is costly (enclosures,fuel for heaters etc.) Production goes down costs up = real tight margins. If we must though,it is layers of clothing and a fire barrel for the mortar makers.

Layers are the most important
More thin layers is better then one big coat

Here in. Northeast Ohio it is not uncommon to get to sub-zero temps during the winter months. I usually have to layer flannels, thermals, beanie, jackets and multiple pairs of socks if I'm working outside.

Warm feet are a huge factor walking through snow or the cold ground and its easy accomplish. Other things like tucking in your shirt and hoodie are a must to keep out drafts. The cold is one thing.....and the wind is another its the worst.

Re: Giveaway: Wolverine Outfitting You From Head To Toe


Top and bottom Columbia thermals over my polkadot undies, merino socks, Duluth firehose pants, two Superseal sweatshirts, a fresh pair of thermal boots, polar penguin gloves and a nice tight fitting thermal hat.

I usually also buy a fresh case of foot and hand warmers and leave them in the truck...really come in handy during those brutal days.

Logistics come into play as well, when you can...stay dry, follow the sun, avoid the winds and no long lunches.

Now get back to work!
