Cold Weather Gear

Cold Weather Gear includes clothing and accessories that can keep you warm in the coldest environments so that you can be productive, comfortable, and safe while performing your job in the cold weather. Be prepared for the cold by layering your clothing and choosing the right fabrics to keep you warm and dry- both important factors in the cold!  It is necessary to consider clothing and accessories that have the ability to keep both your core and your extremities warm.

Choose undergarments that are able to wick away the sweat so that it can evaporate, mid layers that can insulate and outer layers that are able to repel wet elements such as snow and rain.  Balaclavas with facemasks, neck gaiters, warm hats, gloves and socks are all items included in cold weather gear that will make your day or night in the extreme cold much easier to tolerate. Working in cold, chilly, and wet weather is easier when you are wearing the right gear.  It is certainly worth the time and effort to choose the best cold weather gear for the environment that you are working in.
