WHAT TO WEAR

Hardy cam­era kit is just the be­gin­ning – keep your­self toasty and com­fort­able

Thick, woolly hat

A good beanie will pro­tect you from cold winds. The Barts hat we’re lov­ing here is made from a warm wool blend, but has a fleece lin­ing to avoid itch­i­ness.

Cam­era-friendly mitts

We’ve men­tioned gloves as a piece of gear, but they’re also vi­tal for warmth. If you don’t want to fork out on spe­cial­ist gloves, wear fleece mitts that still let you use your fin­gers.

Ther­mal base lay­ers

It’s bet­ter to wear many thin base lay­ers rather than one bulky one. Opt for mi­crofleece, but make sure it’s breath­able.

Tech­ni­cal coat

A jacket needs to be cosy but prac­ti­cal. This Canada Goose Parka has rib-knit cuffs to trap heat; a re­flec­tive flap at the back, for vis­i­bil­ity in low light; and plenty of pock­ets to keep cam­era ac­ces­sories handy.

Walk­ing boots

When con­di­tions un­der­foot are icy, a good pair of boots (such as Sorel snow boots) make it eas­ier to walk. Team boots up with thick socks.

Flask of hot drink

So not quite one to wear... but it’s easy to get de­hy­drated while car­ry­ing a lot of gear, even in win­ter. You’ll be thank­ful for a Ther­mos when the cold starts to seep in.
