I would say that how cold Boston is depends really specifically on where in Boston you are. The closer you are to the river, the nastier it is. There is something in that cold, moist air that can be particularly unpleasnat in the winter. So if you're going to be in a riverside location you might need more in the way of winter gear. (This might just be my idiosyncratic idea, however.)

LA Guy has convinced me that a duffel coat is the way to go in another thread, and I am also pretty interested in picking up a J. Press peacoat; they are cut prety slim and have a nice huge collar for $230. (There's a J. Press in Harvard Square.) I would also pick up a slim, black down vest for layering, and a big scarf. You can wear your vest under your coat, which is a cool look anyway and is very warm.

Boot-wise, I own a pair of Bean boots that I wear at most 2-3 days a year. Only rarely is there serious snow. What you do want, however, are some gore-tex or rubber boots that can be totally immersed so that you don't have to worry about big gutter puddles in the city. Tuck your jeans into those while you're walking around and your'e all set. This year I'm thinking of picking up some boots by Tretorn. The rest of the time any rubber-soled shoe with traction will suffice for dealing with snow, ice, and salt.

I call.

Sorry bud, you lose. I'm holding an Alert Station, AK, in late January, early February. I've been to some seriously cold places. But at Alert Station, if you don't go fast, your piss will congeal in your dick as it's coming out. I've heard it's even colder inland, in the middle of Nunavut. I do not ever want to be there in winter.

Been to Alta, btw, but in July. Drank until 3 pm became noon again

If you wish to accompany true New Englanders on ski trips, does all the advice given here go out the window and you should get your own expedition weight stuff?
