Winter Hiking Gear

For winter hikes or cold-weather activity in general, it’s important to stay warm and protected from the elements. With that said, you’ll also be pretty active and may want to be mobile, able to remove or add layers and adapt to your changing body temperature. Consider packing some gear to help you stay on top of it all.
