    Use wool for everything except the outer shell. Don’t wear a parka while you’re walking – it’s too bulky and hot and makes changing layers difficult. Get a snow walkers anorak and pants like those made by Lure of the North and Empire Wool and Canvas. These allow moisture to escape while keeping wind out. They also make changing layers easy. Always bring a complete change of clothing in case you get caught out overnight. That includes a parka. Feathered Friends makes great down parkas that are compressible for storage in a backpack while you’re walking.
