PFDs, Clothing and Tuiliks

Question: My roll has greatly improved thanks to you and your tips. I can roll with a norsaq now! I am thinking of buying a tuilik and wonder if you use a PFD on top or underneath. What do you wear under it in winter and freezing temps?

Answer: Congrats on your norsaq roll! I wear a PFD over my Reed tuilik and under my Brooks tuilik (the Brooks tuilik is too bulky to wear it on top). I typically wear my drysuit under my tuilik. Under the drysuit, I dress according to air/water temperature, wearing either just an inner core layer, just an outer core layer or both. And for the feet, SmartWool socks. – Helen
