We’re about a fourth of the way through Rochester’s harsh winter season, and you’ve finally realized that the threadbare hoodie and paper-thin windbreaker you’ve been sporting just ain’t going to cut it. Good news, staying warm really doesn’t take that much effort. Here’s a few simple solution to keep those vulnerable bits of you from turning rosy red as the wind blows down the Quarter Mile:
Ears: Heated headband. The makers of your favorite hand warmers now have a product designed to house one of those toasty pockets of joy over each ear. Probably the most difficult body parts to keep warm effectively just got a little easier. http://warmers.com
Fingers: Mittens. Why mittens? Because your fingers stay warmer when they’re next to each other. Black Diamond is a quality brand when facing the elements and BackCountryGear.Com features a variety of their products ranging from $11-$200 dollars. Yes, it can get pricey, but so can hospital visits for frostbite. http://bcgear.com
Legs and arms: Long Johns. This is a great solution for all you hipsters trying to look cool out there. Just add another layer down there. Yeah, I know leggings are in, but you’re art kids. Get creative and find a solution to make it work. Outer Sports sells Genuine U.S. Military Issue Polypropylene Thermals for under $20! http://outersports.com
