Warm Your Hands and Head

We’re right in the middle of winter, and it’s clear that keeping warm is important. Having a warm, reliable coat of some kind is usually the first thing on people’s minds, but there are other body parts you have to keep in mind as well. Your head and your hands can quickly and easily get cold, which can make the rest of you feel cold pretty quickly as well.

To keep your hands warm in winter, you need good gloves. These gloves should generally be thick, waterproof, and lined for warmth. For cold days you’ll want hats that cover the ears snugly, so no wind can get to them. We want to feature some of our best hats and gloves that will keep you warm for the rest of winter.
