Got back from Boston last night, last week was pretty cold. When I got to Boston it was 0F and windy, during the week houses burnt because of frozen hydrants, schools were closed because it only took 5 min. to freeze exposed skin. Yesterday was a lot warmer, when I left it was 18F with a wind chill of 3F and starting to snow, seemed pretty nice.
I was so happy I had the Snorkel Parka and the Heavy Walt Tweeds, I was rather impressed. Had some Thinsulate gloves, had to keep my hands in my pockets after about 15 minutes. Wore thermals my heavy tweeds, a shirt and tee shirt and some wool socks & AE shoes, was not bad at all. When the wind would gust I could feel it a little on my legs. Went out site seeing, walking around for about 2 hours, wasn't cold at all when I got back to my Hotel. I thought this parka was rather light when I got it, but it said it was to military spec.... it was awesome at -20F.
I'd like to thank all of you that helped me find these tweeds (and this store), just what I needed, SF Rocks!
My manager commented on my Walt Tweeds and asked me where I got them....
Wow -20F? Impressive.
Which tweed Walts did you wind up going with?
