We may look funny, but we were actually pretty warm. Before we left on the trip I contacted Columbia Sportswear about some jackets, and they mentioned their new Omni-heat line of clothing. This stuff is pretty cool. The inside of the jackets, gloves, and hats all have little silver foil dots that reflect heat back at you, plus they are very wind-resistant. The boots have electric heaters in them to keep your feet warm. My jacket is black; Trent’s Columbia parka has some version of green and outer-space camo.
