I want to keep my exercise going even during the Michigan winter (barring those days when windchill is an issue) and am curious about what others wear in a cold climate.
Right now I'm layering a set of Cuddl Duds (long johns) and a layer of thermals along with sweatpants, a thin polar fleece 1/4 zip, heavy polar fleece 1/4 zip, jacket, wool hat (polar fleece lined), gaiter or scarf, and mittens.
On the one day it was snowing, the sweat pants collected their fair share - so I see that I may need another choice like workout tights.
So far so good, even with the cold Michigan weather we've had so far -- but winter isn't quite here yet.
I've put YakTrax (ice traction) on the shortlist (to help me as I walk).
What kinds of things do you wear? Any recommendations for cold-weather workout gear? Am not one who cares about "famous" name brands, so off-brand/store brand is A-OK with me. Same with shopping in the men's department if something there is better suited.
Thanks in advance for any help offered!
