STOPPING WINTER— COLD
GO FARTHER, STAY WARMER, AND GET MORE DONE WITH THESE COLD-WEATHER SOLUTIONS.
Fortunately, winter’s freezing grip doesn’t cover the entire country; but where it does, you need to be prepared for the worst. There are plenty of products that will keep you warm and comfy during these dreary months, but relatively few will provide the protection and promote the mobility and load efficiency that you’ll find in this collection. While it’s almost always better to hunker down inside a warm and secure shelter, these products can help keep you alive if you don’t have that option or need to stay on the move.
When it gets cold, be sure to take particular care to protect your extremities, as well as your ears and nose, because these are the first parts of your body to suffer the most from low temperatures and the effects of windchill. And remember that you’re better served by using layers of clothing instead of wearing a single heavy coat or pants. Layering allows you to adjust your level of protection as temperatures and exertion levels change. Using layers that can be worn in various combinations can prevent overheating and sweating, which can become serious threats to your survival in the winter.
