I'm in Ontario too, and wow what a blizzard we are getting today, eh?!
51- please explain at what point I was 'talking shit'. Because all I see me doing is pointing out a nice thread jack, then apologizing for pointing it out, and even ASKING people to thumb down my comments. Please comprehend what you are reading before you call me a dumb-ass.
That's a horrible comparison, considering OP is doing more of a disservice to themselves by putting so many clothes on. Not only will their mobility be reduced because of all the thick layers, but they'll probably start sweating pretty heavily in a short amount of time... edit: lol didn't even notice the person below me beat me to saying just that.
I'm from Rochester, NY, which is on the coast of Lake Ontario and probably has a similar climate to where the OP is from and I have to say, I agree with stevenmx86. The OP is in Ontario, not Antarctica. The OP doesn't need several pairs of those things. One winter coat, a heavy sweater, one hat, one pair of gloves, a good pair of snow boots, and possibly a scarf are all that is needed.
The more layers you put on the worse your are... You'll start to sweat and cold plus sweat not to fun. But hey it was the thought that counts
I've been through 20 Canadian winters, I know what I'm talking about when it comes to layering and cold weather. The thing about sweat is that it cools you down when it dries, something you obviously want to avoid when your objective is keeping warm. OP is an idiot for putting on two winter coats, plain and simple. The perfect way to bundle up is to wear multiple thin layers, since the multiple layers trap air between them, which in turn acts as its own insulating layer. I wasn't suggesting that layering in general is stupid, but the way OP did it certainly is.
