I'm still wanting to walk outside during the cold winter season. Just cautious about what I should be wearing( clothes wise) and how long I should be staying out there for. It's usually between -21-38 here in Kenora, Ontario.

  • I guess as long as you have on really good insulated boots, plenty of warm layers, hat and gloves you can walk as long as you feel comfortable and can still feel your extremities.

  • It is alot colder than that where I live.I think that as long you are dressed for the weather and you dont go too far from your home you should be okay.Maybe you could just do laps around the block or something

  • I used to walk my dog out in 50 below 0 weather when we lived in Fairbanks, Alaska. The soldiers were all out there for a MUCH longer time, too. I'd get a balaclava and make sure you have a good coat, gloves, wear silk weights, good boots, etc. As long as you are dressed for the weather, you can be out there for as long as you are comfortable.
