what did the natives where in the winter time, maybe a clout leggings and jest a waist coat or capot? maybe just hides wraped around themselves or matchcoats, i lookin to make a f&i waistcoat would that be approprate for these surcumstances depending on the weight of the wool?

Which tribe? Where? When?

Simple coats (as well as some made up with fancy lace, etc) were traded/gifted all over.

Kalm mentions the Huron men dressing in toques, capots and jackets/waistcoats of the French while still wearing breechcloths.

The simple matchcoat was just about universal.

Now this is just my thought ...But I think yes they wrapped themselves up with hides and traded blankets and wore coats or capotes. But the one thing I have noticed in my travels that people who live in certain climates all year round tend to handle the weather better then someone who doesn`t ...again just my own thoughts

Called a machicote in this area, but usually worn by women.

And if you have a matchcoat wrapped around you or a coat/capot on, there is no leg exposed.


In both of these I'm wearing only moccs (with liners), leggings, breechcloth, linen shirt, wool bonnet and wool capot.

March, about 20F, light wind of the lake:


January, -14F, lots of wind:


And, yes, being acclimated to the weather makes a big difference for most folks.
