    Jarvman,

    I can recommend the M&S 100% lambswool jumpers to go under your fleece. - http://www.marksandspencer.com/Blue-...elated-items-3

    In the past I would be sent out like this guy in the movie The Christmas Story. God help you if you fell down, you would be stuck for life. And don't lick the flag poles.

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

    Amen.

    The other thing,,, If it looks sexy and trim fitting,,, it's likely cold. you want to look like a StayPuff Marshmallow. Big,,, loose fitting, nothing tight on arms or legs and feet.

    Missed the Christmas story post,,, that's the look your looking for.

    Can you still get Moon boots? Remember those? Big old baggy things with an inch of styrofoam in the sole?

    I take it that is -4C (25F), the current temperature in Cardiff?

    It must be -4C because -20C is extremely rare indeed here.

    There's a company called psolar that makes balaclavas with a weird little mouthpiece doo-hickey attached to it (makes you look sort of like Darth Vader). The doo-hickey is actually a small heat-exchanger, heating your inhalation significantly helps the body retain heat in cold weather. First saw cops in Chicago using these. Works amazingly well.

    Don't forget to protect your camera as well. Not so much from the cold but from condensation when you come back to the warm moist house. I always carried some zip lock bags to wrap everything up tight before coming in from the cold.

    Austrian Army surplus winter boots (double layer of leather with some insulation in between, heavy but effective), cross-country skiing undies under normal outer wear (just add layers!) and winter cycling gloves of varying size, insulation and number of finger pockets (the warmest ones are "Live long and prosper" only). This winter, I'm trying out snowshoes for the first time, tired of getting stuck in snowdrifts.
