I agree with keeping your hands in a muff. Also agree with proper layering.
Wool or synthetics are our friends and DEFINITELY stay away from anything cotton.

This is the kind of hand warmers I am talking about:

Hands in a muff?

Very tempting but I'll leave it alone.

Outdoor magazines.

Was the only way back in the post stone-age to get any new info

Since the internet came to some semblance of maturity, I haven't had any mag subscriptions.

I was trying (badly apparently) to be funny. I remember getting Backpacker, Outside, and a couple others.

Yeah, this is true. My grandfather was an avid outdoors man and always had Field and Stream next to his chair.

No mag subscriptions?? What do you read in the bathroom?

no kidding. Thats outdoor survival 101. Never do cotton. Wool helps retain body heat when wet. Cotton does the exact opposite. Especially this day and age with all kinds of crazy textiles we have now, I'm not even sure if anything is 100% cotton anymore?? But yeah, cotton is your enemy if you want to live when its cold outside
