If you are planning to stand out in the cold, go snowboarding, snowshoeing or a myriad of other outdoor winter activities, than you should have these essentials in your closet. I will be hanging out in the cold Michigan air for SnoDrift Rally and these are the things I pack so I don’t freeze my tush off. Using layers and find the particular fabrics is the key to staying warm outside. One thing you will want to avoid is cotton. You will want to find fabrics that wick and keep the cold out and warm in.
The following 9 items are the “essentials” when considering doing anything outside when the temps are below zero.
Some others you will want to consider:
- Hand and Foot Warmers
- Polyester Socks (NOT COTTON!!)
- Fleece Gator
Under Armour Turteneck
Under Armour Long Underwear
Nike Snowboarding Highcrest Pant
Theory Burton Jacket
Sorel Women’s Joan Of Arctic Boot
