And this is why I also posted the response on www.rpg.net http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?t=441300
The List so far:
Cloaks, variety of styles
Waterproof cloaks / gear. The only thing worse than being cold or wet is being cold AND wet
Hats with earflaps
Scarves (in Clan Colors) are important
Cold Weather clothing.
Thick warm underwear - dress in layers!
Thick wool socks - doubled in very cold weather
Boots with studs,
Snow Boots (big footed)
Boots with clip on studs, usually as part of the design.
Crampons for climbing - these are ancient! Apparently Hannibal's men used crampons to cross the Alps
Gloves with spikes
Wool or lined leather mittens, usually worn over gloves!
Think Wool and/ Fur in all the above
Snow Brush (for removing snow from clothes)
Snow goggles to prevent snow blindness
Thermos like arrangement
Skis (general, specialty)
Cross country skis or "hunter's skis" for going more than a hundred yards or so. Cross country skis are long and narrow, good for speed. Hunter's skis are short and wide, more stable can walk instead of skiing, and they don't leave much of a track. Most people don't use ski poles because they use their hands to hold hunting weapons.
Harnesses (for my Reindeer like beasts of burden) or Dogs (for sleds).
Cord (thin rope)
Cords with hook
Shovel, folding usually or just small
Fire starting capability, dry tinder storage.
Tinder, flint, and steel.
Ice fishing rigs
Walking Staffs, which are really tall and and have flags on them. They have a hook as well. (Flag might have clan colors on them)
Glass Enclosed Lantern
Oil and/ or wax for waterproofing - particularly boots
Sand and Rough Salt
