HIKING IN COLD WEATHER – 5 Tips!
HIKING IN COLD WEATHER – 5 Tips!
#Sponsored This video was sponsored by L.L.Bean. For the past few weeks we’ve been exploring our favorite mountains in Wyoming. We’ve seen temperatures dip below freezing, and have even experienced a few doses of sleet and snow! But cold weather has not stopped us from getting outside and enjoying some spectacular scenic hikes. With the right gear, you can enjoy the outdoors year round. So in this video we share five fundamental tips for hiking in cold weather. #BeanOutsider

My preferences, from best to worst:
1. Cold, no wind.
2. Hot, wind.
3. Hot, humid.
4. Cold, windy
Yep, did the bread bags but inside the shoes. Supposed to keep your feet dry but the snow didn’t last long enough in Pensacola to find out:)
Ah the old bread bag trick. My Mom also used lawn bags for halloween costumes one year. Cut holes for eyes, stuck it over our heads, and called us bag people. I guess with 7 kids, you get creative sometimes.
Born and raised in Hawaii I am a beach guy the hiking thing you have to ware to much clothes shorts only
I see a transition now from your older videos to that of more product advertisements. This is disappointing. This combined with lack of response in both email and in youtube messages (in my experience) is a turn off. Sorry to see you guys falling into that, but, i suppose it is hard to resist when companies offer goodies if you’ll make videos about them.
I added bags to my feet as an adult. I was at a sales meeting in Tampa, FL when a torrential thunderstorm flooded the parking lot of our office around the time meeting was ending. Rain stopped so I used a trash bag for each leg/foot and held the bags up until I could reach door of car. Worked and kept feet dry.
Nice video! Before long we’ll be seeing you in LL Bean Catalogs….if they’re smart! Best hiking tip as you get older. Buy a set of good hiking poles and learn how to properly use them. It’s amazing how much easier they make hiking with older hips and knees! (Ours are from LL Bean)
So, S&C finally sold out. Sad to see. Most of LLB products are NOT US made! Long long disappointment.
Nothing wrong with a sponsored video. I believe most of the negative comments only mean that folks missed seeing your usual helpful humorous videos. Don’t sweat it. This too shall pass!
I’ve watched your videos for some time. You two led me to leave and buy a camper and drive around the country. Now, we re in coastal Oregon.
Love your vids but I don’t like your commercial sales pitch..
LL Bean – great company! Great video Sean & Christy, THANKS!!!
Stay in by the fireplace and drink hot buttered rum
Yep, my parents also put bread bags over my feet to help keep my socks dry, but that only worked for maybe 1/2 hour. I’m definitely more of a State, National Park, Mountain guy than a beach guy. I do enjoy nice beaches but I would take camping in a nice wooded park any time over the beach.
Mountain! I grew up on a ranch in Montana so mountains hold a special place in my heart.
I have to say I like your videos but this LL bean commercial seemed about as fake as can be for a LOLOHO video, sorry guys. Please go back to videos that at least seem real.
!!!Just read your email about your snow adventure while at Yellowstone. Wow! Glad you are okay!! Stay safe!
Off topic question but your advice would be appreciated. Every truck I’ve owned has been 4 wheel drive and pretty much every 250 sold these days is 4×4. However if I were to order a truck I could save almost 3 grand if I forgo that option.
I’ve been camping for 4 years and I’ve never once needed 4×4. You guys have traveled to far more places that I could ever hope to and I just wondered if you have ever needed or wished you had 4×4? Thx for any help.
Well if u need something clearly ll Bean is the way to go
i am leery of the video for the long drive from Alabama to Alaska brought to you by Preparation-H (LOL)
hey guys, love your video’s- gonna get off topic a bit- just watched your cold weather camping video – we travel from Maine to Nevada each yr – leaving Maine sometimes as late as Dec- hitting plenty of cold weather – I purchased thick felt like carpet pad – like you use in your home – it’s fairly inexpensive and cut it to fit all the floors – wow, what a difference – we know how cold these floors get – you can put a layer of the rubber rug grip between the floor & pad to keep it in place – a good size strip down the center works for us – hope this helps
I LOVE your channel! You both look like a young Harrison Ford and Faith Hill. Please keep the videos coming!
Hey Sean, where did you get your hat you’re always wearing? I like it! Really enjoy your videos!
Beach. I grew up in Southern California and Hawaii and now live in Vegas. Pretty much, dont know what cold weather is, and really dont want to. 😎 I do know a thing or 3 about an all day hike at Disneyland tho.
You are looking good in this gear! If you could guarantee I would look like you that would be great lol!
Great job. Congrats on the sponsorship. My daughter works at LL Bean in Freeport. Love Beans!
You guys are to much! Love your videos. My idea of cold is anything under 70 degrees. We winter in south Florida so our hiking is on the beach in Naples.
You guy are awesome , LOVE you both !!! Keep e’m coming!!! My wife & I do alot of hikes, mostly fall, and you sure need to be prepaired for anything mother throughs your way! Thanks for all you both do, hope to run into you some day!!
Bread bags were boot liners for us in Indiana. More because we didn’t have a lot of money so we didn’t have very good boots. Kept our feet dry from the outside but super sweaty on the inside. 😂 Another great product are Hot Hands. Always carry several in your pack. You can even cook a potato with them if you’re desperate (or want to win a bet) 👍🏻
We love the mountains, we camp year round.In the summers we head to the mountains. And I grew up in Tennessee, my Mom was from Minnesota and she used bread bags on our feet inside our shoes, we’d come in when our feet statred to hurt from the cold.
I love cold weather hiking and snowshoeing.
I adore both mountain and beach. At first I thought I totally liked the mountains and the beach was just a bright noisy crowded place but since I love swimming and I got to move near the beach I fell in love. Having starfish zip by and experiencing that every single day is different at my stretch of the beach was a real eye opener. I hardly get to go to either now but can live at least vicariously through you two when I stop by. Lol.
I enjoyed the video, however I have a "real world" question about hiking boots: my family went to Yellowstone back in September 2017 and we encountered snow. We had an absolute blast! However, our hiking boots were woefully inadequate! May you please give a review on the hiking boots that you have used (Campfire question topic!) both for dry conditions and wet, cold conditions. Thank You!
Sean, if you were a kid in the 1970s or 1980s, living in New Jersey, you wore bread bags on your feet in the snow, not just for play, but to walk to school too.
Wonder Bread bags were my Mom’s go to footwear.
We are mountain people. You are at our favorite spot. Grand Tetons!
Wow!!! Was just out (in the cold😒) draining all my lines and doing the dreaded flush gettin ready for my next trip. Will be hitting up Robbers Cave park in Oklahoma for some hiking and fishing in a few weeks. Was just thinking that I haven’t heard from you guys in a while. Looked y’all back up on you tube and noticed I’m not a subscriber 🙈🙈🙈. Guess I just watched y’all so much you tube just made me think I was.
very cool tips of hiking in cold weather.. i was able to understand all.. thanks for sharing your video.
I am a Mountain person, I don’t like basting in my own sweat on the beach. I enjoy snorkeling on the beach ever so often, but staying there more than a few days…no not I Sam I am. Not in a palm tree, not in RV….
Grew up in northern-Ohio and used the bread bags on our feet between layers of socks when playing football in the snow. It made a world of difference; we would play for hours!!!
Love all the different outdoor places… and the key to cold weather is to stay DRY!
You talked about your head and upper body. It’s so easy to layer the upper body. How do you layer the lower body for changing temperatures when it is cold? Thanks, Joyce
The bread bags on your feet would go inside your shoes 😊
I just found your channel and have been binge-watching your videos. You two are so professional and make videos that are a joy to watch! There are a lot of folks out there who think that if they have a smarty-pants phone and a car (with or without a cracked windshield) they can upload a video. I wish I were 40 years younger and could enjoy your kind of traveling. You make it sound so fun. Yellowstone is my favorite place on this ole planet Earth, and your Yellowstone videos are wonderful. We just returned from a mid-October visit, and dodged a couple of snowstorms…one right before, which closed all the entrances except Northeast and required a long detour from Cody, and one right after we left. This is the second year in a row we have been there in October, and I believe the perks of fewer crowds far outweigh the fact that some stores and lodgings have closed for the season. We travel with our small dog, and it looks as though you also have a pup, but have not introduced him to your viewers (or have I just not seen that video yet?) Many good wishes to you both and travel safe!
In Michigan, do NOT go out alone. Make sure you have someone with you to hold your beer while you do stupid things.
Took four months for my pacs to show up at my house. I keep them in my car all of the time.
Weather I like, Hot and dry, cold and dry, in-between and dry. Common theme…dry. 😊
in my city we never had snow. it only snowed once after 100 years. so. lol
Totally wore plastic bags and I grew up in Buffalo NY! I actually had put them on my kids too. Is it really that bad an idea? Lol not a fashion statement for sure. 😃
We don’t camp during the summer, July-September, to hot, give me the cold and snow any day. That’s why they put heaters in campers . . . right? Also less people around while school is in session.
I love being outside the cold weather. When I was little we went outside into the snow in the AM and came back at dusk. We had snow boots, but when I got older I bought the LL Bean duck boots and snow boots and my feet never get wet or cold. Rarely get blisters either. Really! Love LL Bean and you two! (And Baby Girl of course)
