I grew up in Brazil and moved to Toronto 10 years ago. My first 7 winters I wore/layer: a long sleeve under shirt, a sweater, a Patagonia fleece jacket, a long down filled jacket, a toque and gloves. I was so bundled up that I couldn’t put my arms down. During -30 degrees days, I was shivelling like my internal organs are going to freeze. 3 winters ago I bite the bullet and bought an Expedition CG jacket. If you ask me where my gloves are – I couldn’t tell ya. I don’t need them or any other winter gears anymore!
