    Ditto. My boots have a real thick liner and I wear a thin sock. Anything more, even in 20 below, and I'm sweating. For the gloves, Manzella makes a decent, thin liner that I wear as a base and it helps wick away any sweat I build up. If I can find a link, I'll post it.

    wear those big yellow fishing boots. Unless you got a blizzard, you won't be stepping in that deep of a snow.

    I wear Carrhart rain coat, pants, gloves the nice set that is nylon not the rubber. I wear columbia titanium boots rated to -30. They give great traction and stay dry. Total setup is about $350 or so but is definitely worth it when you have to be wearing it for 20-30 hours sometimes.

    Default Muck Boots

    Muck boots are definitely the way go. Mine keep my feet warm as cold as -15. And they never sweat!!!! As far as gloves, the best ive ever used for snowblowing were heavy duty lined rubber gloves. cant do much while wearing em but great for running a snowblower. Theyre actually the same ones they wear on Deadliest Catch, ya know, the hunter orange ones. Sweet gloves!!

    Default Was just out in snow

    I was actually just out in snow helping someone salt and i was underdressed. I suggest you wear snow boots not work boots, a jacket not a sweatshirt, jeans and not sweatpants, also get a good pair of gloves and a pair of arctic socks
