    Didn't Joe Namuth wear panty hose as a foot ball player? Or was that just a tale of sorts?

    Anyway,,, the silk glove comments a bit ago, they've got the full silk underwear available.

    Specific to hands, I wear wool mitts with a separate outer shell. That's just for trudging in an out. Working the camera, I take the mitts off, but I keep some of those Grabber Hand Warmers (opening exposes them to air and they heat-up) in my coat pockets. I get to work the camera barehanded, but take a break now and then to warm the hands and fingers if necessary.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    I'll have Mommy dress me.
    Luckily, Mommy lives in West Palm Beach !

    Many years ago when I had to do roofing repair on extremely cold days.
    They first layer to go on was pantyhose, and then thermal underwear,
    and a few other layers on top. This past weekend I went to the beach
    and wasn't properly dressed. Went back home and went through the
    SCUBA gear, and pulled out the Henderson Titanium Gloves, and the
    EVO Lycra suit. Went back to the beach and spent an hour taking
    pictures, and felt nice and warm. Now I'm thinking about trying the
    drysuit when it gets really cold and I feel like take the 4X5 for a walk.

    I shoot down below -30C in the mountains in winter and use good quality outdoor gear and heated clothing. Since you are in UK have a look at Blazewear. Wearing layers works best rather than 1 really thick one then as you move around you can remove a layer so you don't overheat. I wear 2 or 3 gloves to keep hands warm. Ski gloves are warmest over 1 or 2 pairs of thin liner gloves.

    I've started to use PolarTec materials, long johns, upper body stuff and I have a thin pair of PolarTec gloves. The gloves remind me of "old lady gloves" from the 50's and 60's except they are a bit stretchy and black. They make a real nice inner glove for any other glove. They allow me to operate my Leica and Hassy without too much of a death grip. The gloves are enough for reasonable amounts of time but outer gloves or into the pockets are needed when its really cold.

    My wife has gone very PolarTec. She is out walking every morning for 45 minutes at the break of dawn. It keeps getting colder and she is very much staying warm. She also got us both a PolarTec hood/face mask thing. Makes you look like you are on the swat team.

    For Xmas I have purchased her a pair of ski goggles. Probably will get myself one too, mostly to keep the cold off my eyes till I need to pull them down or up to focus frame and shoot.

    So if you like shooting in cold weather... (shameless plug on the horizon now) Come to the Frozen Film shoot this Feb, the weekend before Valentines at Hocking Hills State Park.

    Come see:

    -4C isn't so cold that you need much in the way of specialist clothing

    However, its probably beyond your regular attire

    I would start with a high quality base layer for both legs (http://www.blacks.co.uk/clothing/men...tribute=165654) and torso ( http://www.blacks.co.uk/clothing/pro...tribute=165296) and then build up from there.

    Personally, I find it difficult to match the requirements of walking/hiking and those of standing around for ages waiting for the light

    Any good outdoor shop will be able to advise you but wickable layers are the key IMO
