As a Florida-based travel writer who often takes cold-weather excursions, I’m always on the lookout for products that will help my wimpy self stay warm. I’m also a woman who doesn’t mind looking a bit stylish while trekking around the world. However, for me, style must also come with function. For example, if I’m sporting sandals, they need to be comfortable enough to tootle around the cobblestone streets of Madrid.
When you decide to trek through Iceland, one of the world’s most extreme climates, I highly recommend outfitting yourself like an Icelander. In that regard, when I climbed Hvannadalshnúkur, Iceland’s highest peak, in May I made sure to bundle up in a 66°NORTH jacket. This bright red Vatnajökull Softshell uses a new fabric called Polartec Power Shield Pro.
I’m a bit of a cold-weather wimp. Mainly because I’ve lived most of my life in the sunshine state. Needless to say, I do not have the warmest winter wardrobe. With that said, I knew I needed to arm myself with heavy-duty warm and cozies for my trip to the Canadian wilderness this past February. So, as I was packing my bags, I opted to bring along a pair of Burton Expedition Layers and put them to the test.
