How to Dress for the Outdoors

1 post in this topic

Dressing in layers is the key to keeping warm in the winter and to keep from overheating in the summer. To adjust to temperature changes and varying activity levels, you simply add or remove clothing according.

In order to reduce chilling, long underwear, and other under garments are now being made of polyester type materials to remove moisture away from the skin.

Fleece is a good second layer for trapping your body's warmth.

Outer layers vary depending on conditions. But these wind resistance, water resistance outer layers should provide convenience and ease of movement.

Always be prepared with rain gear.

For maximum comfort and blister prevention, you should wear two layers of socks, a thin polyester sock liner with a thicker outer sock. Make sure to change your socks if they get wet and also at night before going to bed.

Quality footwear is important for any activity. They provide stability, warmth and comfort. Make sure that you waterproof your boots. If your feet hurt, you will not enjoy yourself. Period.

Hats are good for both warmth and sun protection. In cool weather, sleeping with a hat can provide the warmth you need. Up to 80% of your body heat can be lost through your head and neck.

Gloves protect your hands. Exposing your hands to extreme cold can quickly cause frostbite. Protecting your hands is also important while doing outdoor work.

Quality sunglasses are also necessary.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
