This has been discussed hundreds of times here on the forum, use the ,,search" above, and you´ll see the answers.
But the keyword is Layers, many warm layers, (non cotton) and a waterproof outer layer.
For hiking, waterproof shoes (GoreTex are the only one I recommend).
For ,,in town, warm casual shoes and clothes.
Thank you so much for your help!
ive bought some thermal north face trousers which are really comfy.
Thank you. I will definitely look into this!!. :)
We just came back from Iceland, and for part of the trip experienced gale force winds. With the following clothes we felt fine, even out at 1 in the morning to see the aurora. Helly Hansen base layer, craghoppers long-sleeved T and lined trousers, woolly jumper, North Face Nuptse jacket and a Berghaus windproof shell. Oh and beanie hat & gloves obviously.
My wife had a North face coat which also kept her legs warm and she rhapsodised about it frequently.
Thank you so much. This info is super helpful!
Just got back from Iceland. As someone has said in a reply, do wear layers. Layering helps keep you warm, don't wear cotton layers. Be prepared for wind and rain. Outer layer waterproof. Make sure you take gloves and a hat. The wind can be very strong. Good waterproof boots. I took a pair of fleece lined pants and they worked great with one layer underneath the pants. WOOL socks. We got into some wet, ugly weather but we never got cold, as we dressed in layers and we are used to the cold weather.
Great advice. Thank you very much.

Thank you for the advice about not bringing an umbrella. I was wondering about it... Thanks again.
