How does this former Florida boy beat the cold?
Start at the top. Knit caps and neck gaiters are wonderful. I have found the Polar-Tec material to be the warmest.
Base layers have improved over the years. The XGO brand is American made. Choose the “Phase 4.0” for maximum warmth. This brand is the most comfortable I have found.
SealSkinz™ makes waterproof socks and gloves. These actually fit like a second skin. Another great sock is a brand called “Fits”. These knee-high socks are very warm.
Boots are cumbersome in a boat. Try a half-boot style like the Camo-Camp Boot by Muck. They are waterproof and warm.
Your legs need another layer. Have you tried fleece-lined jeans? The warmth and comfort is off the chart. Look for these at retailers like Cabela’s outfitters.
Outerwear technology has changed too. Check out the new StrykR® jackets and bibs by StormR®. These feature Neoprene Core™ technology. This material adds positive flotation to their gear.
Layer up with these high-tech products. Now you can concentrate on fishing, instead of being cold.
