Cold weather help

Hello, an odd question here. My husband is disabled. He has recently become very, very sensitive to the cold. Although I laugh sometimes we have a space heater and an electric blanket but the discomfort is increasing. Can any of you cold weather dwellers help me out. Is there some brand of an inexpensive coverall - maybe fleece or comprable - you can recommend? Already asked him about a Snuggie but he says no to that one.

Thanks!

PAmela

I agree with Lizard, LL Bean makes the best flannel lined jeans and fleece PJs at a pretty good price. Also for silk thermals , try Patagonia. They make great items that are light weight and warm but no so cheap. Both catalogs would fit your bill. I don't blame your hubby for saying no to the snuggie. Smart man he is.......

Hey Pamela,
QVC sells a brand of "long underwear" for both men and women. I bought some before I went to Indiana and Oregon last year when it was 10 degrees and blizzard weather all week. It was really toasty and the best part was it was light-weight. I'll have to get them out of the cold weather suitcase to find the brand, but if you are surfing the net, go to qvc and search for warm weather gear, or something like that. I'll let you know, though.

www.cabelas.com They may have what your looking for. I live in Alaska and I order some cold weather weather gear from them, maybe be overkill for USVI......

Pamela,
On QVC, it's called "Outlast".

Forget the electric blanket - the best invention yet for keeping warm is a heated mattress pad. My father has one on the bed for me every time I visit. It is great because each side of the bed has their own control so my husband turns his off and I crank my side up. It works so much better than an electric blanket because it's under you and heat rises so if you put a comforter on it's like a little oven for you.
For warm clothes, I agree with Chockman on the Pendelton brand.

Pamela, I have thermal underwear and insulated coveralls but when not too cold I find long cotton PJ's to be the most comfortable under my clothes (I hate being cold BRRRRR)
