Boy do I remember northern winters! I lived near Lake Michigan. In Wisconsin for a while but mostly the Chicago area. Anyway, I was sure happy when Down jackets came on the market. I guess that would have been in the 70's or so. Mork and Mindy was on TV. I had a dark blue down jacket with a hood.

I load up on the thermals, polar fleece, insulated boots, goretex/down jacket, polar fleece neck warmer...I've got it all. And I always find myself smiling once I get it all on and here's old Woody waggin' his tail all set to go without putting on a thing! And of course just to show off he jumps in the first body of water he comes to!

They do make chemical hand warmers which I hear are very effective if kept in your pockets to warm up your hands.

That reminds me, I am trying out one of the zippo hand warmers this year. So far I've taken it on 2 cold hikes with OK results.

Amazon.com: Zippo Hand Warmer: Sports & Outdoors Amazon.com: Zippo Hand Warmer: Sports & Outdoors

It claims a 12 hour runtime, and it gets plenty hot. There is no exposed flame, but I was slightly afraid of bursting into flames initially.

It ges very cold in Northen Ontario. I find the wramest clothes are UnderArmor longjohns under sweat pants or snow pants depending how cold it is, smartwool socks in Sorel boots, hot paws mitts, neck warmer to cover my chin and nose if need be, LandsEnd fleece hat and Canada Goose coat. Seger wears a fleece lined coat and muttluks. We have to endure minus 30 C weather a lot of the time.

I used to have problems with my finger tips getting cold but have found wearing windproof mitts instead of gloves really helped. Also making a concious effort to keep my fingers and thumbs moving (flexing them or curling them into my palm) inside my mitts made a big difference.

I too get the "so cold they burn"fingertips. I wear gloves until June. It's kinda embarrassing, but my hands get so cold. I think my Dad may have raynaud's. His hands are like ice and his GP mentioned it to him.
In winter I wear down jacket, wool sweater, touque, scarf, insulated hiking boots. I find waterproof wind pants over jeans are good for most of the winter. And they're great over pj's as well if you don't really feel like getting dressed. In really cold weather I wear Fleece-lined snow pants(hand me down from my oldest son who wore them in jr high).i have three levels of gloves, depends on the temperature. Stretchy knitted gloves inside fleece ones work in most temperatures.
