DON’T FOR­GET YOUR LEGS!

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - Advice -

You’d be sur­prised how many peo­ple cover their up­per body with su­per-warm gear and then sac­ri­fice their legs to the cold. Although they’ll be work­ing and cre­at­ing heat, cold legs can lower your blood tem­per­a­ture enough that your jacket be­comes ir­rel­e­vant.

Con­sider some wick­ing un­der­wear to keep your groin (which has a lot of blood ves­sels close to the sur­face and gives off a lot of heat) dry and warm. And tights or thin leg­gings un­der walk­ing trousers can make a real dif­fer­ence to your body tem­per­a­ture over a day.
