I've moved / am moving, from a much warmer to a colder climate. Previously I had lived on the coast of the Mediterranean, with winter temperatures are ~ 10°c-15°c midday and 2°c-8°c at midnight, or thereabouts. Now it's 2°c-8°c at midday and -4°c - 3°c at night.
That's still not super-cold, but I'll also add that I'm personally sensitive to lower temperature and to wind, and catch a cold easily, my nose fills up and my sinuses flare etc. If that's not enough, I now use a bike to get around. And, finally, it rains here more frequently.
I have winter clothing from back home - but it is not remotely adequate to these conditions.
So, there are some items I've already bought personally, but now is the first time I'm experiencing the height of winter here, and it's snowing, and windy, and, well - I'm cold!
So what kind of items should I make sure I have, and what features of things like coats, gloves, caps etc. should I pay attention to when buying?
- I wanted to make this question non-country specific. The temperature range is mostly for illustration. If you think the details matter then say so.
