Gear for a Winter Time Trip
Sierra Designs Women’s Hurricane Pant add an extra layer of comfort for those chilly winter hikes.
The same layering applies to your feet. Begin with Sock Liners followed by Merino Wool Hiker Socks. Wear hiking shoes with a pair of gaiters to protect legs from getting wet. This eliminates the need to pack snow boots—remember, we’re gearing up for a casual day in the snow, not a heavy duty skiing excursion.
And be sure to tuck several packages of adhesive body warmers into your carryon. They come in varieties for hands, toes, feet and more. It’s your insurance against extra cold weather!
