This Southern California girl knows how to keep warm and dry in cold destinations.
Most important is staying dry. I wear the following quick drying pieces to accomplish this:
Gear is expensive. If adventure trips are something you want to continue to pursue, there are great sale items online. I always look at the ratings. REI is a bit more expensive, but has the benefit of returns for up to a year. Yes, you can return items up to a year if you join the Co-op for $20 even if they have been worn. I returned a backpack that was not comfortable after 2 hikes. They also have a REI Garage Sale at their stores where they sell these items.
If you want to buy used items there are many options to buy 2nd hand high quality items. I have had luck on Ebay and Gear Trade. Happy Shopping!
