HANDLING SUB-ZERO TEMPERATURES DURING SHOOTING

Keeping warm and dry are prerequisites when shooting during the winter months. I have made some recommendations
on attire and layers. Hope you will find them useful.

 

TOP - 5 layers (from left to right)

1. UNIGLO top (HEATTECH)

2. COLUMBIA top (with breathable material with little silver dots that reflect body heat)

3. ICE-BREAKER Fleece with hood

4. UNIGLO Down Jacket with hood

5. COLUMBIA Rain Jacket

 

BOTTOM - 4 layers (from left to right)

1. UNIGLO pants (HEATTECH)

2. COLUMBIA (with breathable material with little silver dots that reflect body heat)

3. UNIGLO (warm-lined cargo pants)

4. MOUNTAIN HARD WEAR Men's Compressor pants (insulated and water proof- with long side zips to slip over boots)

 

MISCELLANEOUS

LEFT TO RIGHT

1. MARMOT thin gloves (most useful for shoots; fingers remain flexible but always retain a heat pack to squeeze in
between shoots)

2. GLOVES from THINK TANK (although thumb and index finger can be exposed; overall the gloves feel rather rigid.
Useful to keep hands warm when not shooting.

3. COLUMBIA Cap (with silver dots)

4. Fredickson fleece cap
I prefer to use the hoods from the attire as the caps then tend to tighten my spectacle frames to my face which makes it
more uncomfortable

LEFT TO RIGHT

1. Mask to cover mouth (optional - more difficult to use as it tends to cause my spectacles to fog up)

2. Woolen socks - a must

 

1. Yaktrak (a must especially when carrying gear)

2. Water proof boots from Columbia (most easy to slip in and out)
