    +1 about being anti-bulk. but i do like layering. last night i was outside having a cigarette. i had on a dress shirt, my single buttoned cashmere overcoat and a cashmere scarf wrapped around my neck. the wind was tearing my face off, but i felt pretty boss.


    lawlz, i too hate the heat, but maybe not quite that much.

    Minneapolis often has wind chills rivaling that of Chicago.

    When it's really cold or snowing, it is awesome. In most states it doesn't get that cold.

    What I am thinking of is not a pure wind thing....I think the biting chill has more to do with a difference in humidity than the wind chill. Last time I was in Minneapolis (over christmas) there was a day like this where the raw temp wasn't really that low but it just cut through and sucked the warmth out of you...my dad something like "this feels like chicago cold...nasty"

    I believe the actual explanation lies in the increased humidity. Chicago is more humid than minneapolis in the winter (maybe because of the lake? or just being more southern). Below a certain temperature, higher humidities make you feel colder (when you extrapolate the "Heat Index" down to low temps, it has a negative effect), especially when combined with wind. I've heard explanations that include it being because the air has a higher heat capacity and can thus draw out more heat through conduction (amplified by convection from the wind).

    One explanation that I think might have some merit adds in the idea that the moisture starts to condense which defeats the insulating properties of a lot of fabrics. This is less of a big deal with wool and some synthetics (which is why they are good in the wet and cold) but for the average joe on the street it is a big deal. Step outside from a warm room and sure, your winter jacket will still do its job, but your cotton jeans or chinos will immediately experience a little condensation like a cool glass on a hot day when they are exposed to the freezing temps outside. Your jacket will keep working, but some of the same condensation might start to occur on your cotton shirt...ditto your cotton underwear and socks.
    Now, compared to a more arid environment of the same temperature, it is like you have gone outside and taken off a layer.
