    Locals in -4 degrees centigrades..

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Bring a lot of warm clothing even in summer. Just got back from Svalbard and the locals complained about the weather. It was too hot.. Well, it was between -4 and 0 degrees centigrades and to me it was cold. Hat, gloves and a good wind-proof jacket is a must. Also woolen underwear and good shoes is recommended. During winter you will even need more than this.
