I love my nature photography hobby, but in the next few months that will mean going outside in some really cold temperatures and I hate being cold. So, I've decided to get some real winter clothing this year to make it a little more bearable.
I know I should layer, wear a hat and gloves, etc etc., but I'm looking for specifics here. I want brand recommendations and/or specific items you recommend. I want to know what keeps you warm!
Items I am looking to purchase: a winter coat, gloves, snow/hiking boots, general warm winter active clothing.
A few things to keep in mind:
1. Gloves - My hands suffer the most in cold weather. As a photographer, I can't wear super thick gloves because I need to be able to operate the camera. I'm open to layering gloves, but the first layer will need to be something both warm and relatively thin so I can still push the tiny buttons.
2. Clothing / Coat - I'm female, average height, but small. I generally try to buy petite tops because they fit best.
