My nephew would like to not freeze this winter, thank you.

Asking for my sister, mother of a 1.5 year old boy: "Please share your opinions about winter outerwear for a toddler. He already has a good winter coat (thank you friends from Canada), but what about the rest of it? Gloves v. mittens? Bibs v. snow pants? What's worth a significant investment, and where can you save some pennies? Your advice and recommendations, please." Additional relevant info: he is rather tall for his age, and this winter he wears a 3T. He lives in New England, so winter is for real.

Weird Jacket that slid ur phone into your hand.

I read this a LONG time ago, a jacket where you could snap ur wrist (or some other hand geuster/movement) and it cause ur phone (stored in the sleeve) to drop right into ur hand. It was awesome if slightly risky and I'd like to take a look at it again. Anyone know of it? Or something similar?

Hiking pants for very cold temps

What pants do people wear for very cold (0 °F / -18 °C, and colder) weather hiking? Just rain shell pants and wool long underwear? Surely there are insulated pants suitable for hiking? [more inside]

How do you stay fashionably warm in winter?

I started dressing more fashionably in the last year; ditching my Kohls and Sears wardrobe for Banana Republic, J Crew, and Ann Taylor. Overall I'm pleased with my new wardrobe, but I have not figured out what to do for winter! I live in New England where it gets COLD and those thin little "sweaters" that BR and J Crew like so much don't cut it. Last winter I looked great but was frequently cold. Should I just go to LL Bean, or is there some winter fashion secret?

How to keep my lungs warm when biking in the winter?

I'm wanting to do some outdoor bike training this winter, in preparation for going over the Rockies next summer. But, of course, riding in the winter isn't pleasant. The biggest problem I've run into is that my lungs start freezing when I get into a hard climb, while the rest of my body is overheating from the extra layers (essential for big downhills). Any tips on clothing choices that get the best of both worlds, or ways to keep my lungs warm?
