I am a Maine hunting and fishing guide who spends a lot of time all year in the outdoors. We live in a world that is moving towards high tech materials and away from old school. Here in Maine, we who work and play in the cold winters know that wool is still the only way to go. In this picture I am ice fishing on a remote lake in downeast Maine. I am wearing my Double Mackinaw Cruiser and my Mackinaw Field Pants. Under that I have on my Original Extra Long Wool Shirt, my Alaskan Long Johns and my Heavyweight OTC Merino Socks. The outside air temp is 5 degrees with 25 MPH sustained winds and frequent 40-50 MPH gusts! I fished all day oblivious to the cold.
