More winter testing

The temperature out side today reached the lower thirties and then a wet snow started to come down.  It was a good time to test out gear, including this old hat of mine made out of fox.  I like it because it has a brim to keep snow, rain and sunshine out of my face.  A hat like this would not have been worn in the summer, but in the winter, possibly.  I think wool was utilized more.  but today, I only needed one shirt on underneath my French Canadian Capote.  Note that there is a cover over the flintlock to keep snow our of the flash pan area.  I was very comfortable with this set up–though I was not wearing period pants

even .
