What to wear in winter?

Hi,
The times Ive been in Usa is during summer and fall but this time Im going to be here in the winter. When I was during fall I was cold and I didnt stay that long so I know I need something to keep me more warm. Im right now in HI so theres a big huge difference on the weather.

I always get cold just in a chilly night and the other day I was at the store and I see underclothes from Cuddl Duds and Armour. Ive never tried them before and I was wondering if you could give me any suggestions about these brands. One is more affordable than the other but what I really want is something that is going to keep me warm. Do they work fine with just jeans, leggins and socks?

Thank you for your help.

  • Where in the US are you going to be? Huge difference between say Massachusetts and south Florida! I've used cuddl duds and they work great, but I live in nc and rarely need them. Most days I just wear jeans or leggings without anything under them.

  • Um, yeah... you'll have to be more specific. Last year even in the Chicago area, they hardly got below 32 the whole winter. You certainly won't need that stuff if it stays the same as last year. Here in the Southern portion of Missouri, we didn't even wear winter coats last year.

  • Like the others said, location & dates matter - I know in my area the winter forecast is a lot warmer than a typical winter is for us. You can easily layer tights/nylons under pants to help insulate. Under Armour is good but there are a couple of different kinds - some to keep you cool, some to keep you warm. Thermal underwear/long johns are popular.

  • Portland will be mostly wet with a very damp cold, but not actually freezing. Youd do better to wear natual fiber layers with a waterproof outerlayer. Ive lived in Oregon my whole life, and Portland area 7 years

  • Cuddle duds are less intense than Under Armour. If you are going to be outside a lot spring for the Under Armour. You may also want to check out Cabela's website for outerwear and long underwear. Be sure to get a good hat! You lose a lot of heat without one!
