Hi.Montreal winters can be difficult.Temperatures regularly reach -30C with strong winds and snow.
Streets and roads can be dangerous.When you buy winter clothes, make sure the label reads -30C.Here is an inventory: Winter parka with hood Toque (ski cap) Scarf Sweater (2) Thermal underwear, t-shirts Heavy socks Boots (make sure the soles have grips) Gloves Balaclava (optional, but very nice to have) Heavy pants or ski pants Depending on your style, buying all this new could be in the $1200-$1500 range.
The pricey items are the coat (parka) and boots.Toes, fingers, nose, and ears and exposed skin are particularly vulnerable to freezing.Make sure they are protected.
Dressing in layers is important.
If you need them for daily use, you can find a -30C resistant coat for 100–200$ and boat for around 100$.Gloves for 10–20$.You can use Best Place to check Winners, Marshalls, SportsExperts, etc.
For kids, you can trust carters, they usually have 30%off sale at the beginning of winter.They have -30C resistant snowsuits with hat and mitten set around 60$.You can find boats around 40$ at carters, brown outlets, marshalls and winners.
If you don’t mind you can stop by second-hand shops like villagevaleurs and buy them at pretty good prices.
