This can help to stay warm if you go outside and it is 10 below (for a short time layers..(cheap) [View all]

This is a suggestion, may or may not work for you, but should help..

Can a person stay warm outside for relatively cheap..if ten below??
and.... for a relatively short time...., if you must go out..
Well..yes...this is a suggestion...maybe it will work for you.......
. but it requires some planning..(not much.)

First..it is not pretty, but I do not enter clothes contests..those days are over..
(when this cold, no one cares what anyone looks like, anyway..)

What do you need?...nothing extra, you probably have these items already...here we go.

two tee shirts.
three old sweat shirts. (change to one old sweat shirt)
maybe 2 heavy sweaters over the sweat shirt .
one light spring/ fall jacket
one heavy winter jacket.
one good hat., and a ski mask. to cover face..
and two scarves...very important to have at least one very good scarf over face. (wrapped around the face)
good strong pants.
maybe a pair of sweat pants under your pants.
good gloves, and a pair of mittens over gloves..
decent shoes or boots, with two pair of socks on feet..

So it is very very cold. Those two or three sweat shirts, covered by the sweater and light spring jacket, covered by your winder coat, will keep you warm..Of course, yes, it is a good winter coat, but the other layers act as insulation on top of each other. Ski mask and scarves protect face, and the

scarf around face warms the air that enters lungs....that is extremely important.

It isn't pretty but it would work for maybe 10/15 minutes, or till the car warms up, or the bus comes.
....this is not a new idea, but enough layers,and there enough layers here, can keep you warm, for relatively inexpensive amount. but you must have those scarves on your face to warm the air entering your lungs. This is what I read....people can argue about this,,that is ok.....take it as a suggestion that might work. worked for me..
Everyone has their own way to deal with this. This is mine.. All other suggestions are desired and wanted , please add your own..because .......

.... it is cold out there..................
