Clothing from head to toe.

winterkleding

Wearing the right clothing is of vital importance to arm oneself against the potential deadly climate. We had a wide range to our disposal from which I daily selected, depending on the minimum temperature expected. Just once in a while I actually wore the hereunder mentioned outfit at the same time.

Feet:
2 pair of Booster warming socks, electric heated socks by Klan over that and for the outer layer Yamaha snowmobile boots.

Lower part of the body:
Held thermal underwear. Klan electric heated trousers. Knox Cold Killers thermal trousers and over that the Lookwell insulated Endeavour motorcycle pants.

Chest:
Held thermal undershirt. Electric heated inner coat combined with a Klan overcoat. Next layers were a Cold Killers Wind Buddy with a Lookwell insulated textile Endeavour jacket.

Overall:
Lookwell Polar overall with 3 layers of insulation.

Hands:
Sometimes Cold Killers undergloves or the Klan heated inner gloves under the Klan heated outer gloves. Touratech muffs.

Neck:
Booster neck warmer.

Head:
Knox Cold Killers balaclava. Arai helmet with heated visor.

Backup:
Balaclavas of Held and GC. A Held neck warmer. My own R1goesExtreme.com fleece vest. Wind stopper coat and trousers of Carinthia. Term-ic battery heated soles.

Just in case:
Long underwear and socks for swapping (laundry). The spare heated socks and trousers could also be used as an extra layer if necessary.
