Carry - and heavy clothing
I am somewhat ''up North'' but compared to some - not too extreme for weather even if we do get more snow than I like. Snow is one thing - 50º below is another, which I believe some can get in ND, MN, MT etc.
Thinking tho of temp's - (you AZ, TX and FL members - relax!) - there is a need sometimes to really ''wrap up'' tho even when very cold here, I rarely have more than a padded shirt unless things are real bad!
The effect on a draw tho is what I am considering here - and maybe if several layers of clothing needed - do you switch to pocket carry if pocket big enough? I think I would. What this means is - I dress to carry - which includes considerations on access and draw.
A real thick long coat as I see it, is gonna be a real drag when it comes to access. So just interested in what ""Northern'' folks do about this.
