Top 5 Heated Clothing Options For Hunters in Freezing Temperatures

You won’t find any list or blog post about preparing for hunting season that doesn’t list clothing as a necessary purchase. It’s not just an option to dress warmly when you plan to spend all day watching for game, perhaps in subzero temperatures.

But modern advancements in clothing mean you don’t have to wear so many layers that moving becomes cumbersome. You can swap out bulky clothing for thinner, thermal clothing with battery-powered heaters to keep you warm.

Below, you’ll find the top five heated clothing options for hunters.

1. Heated Gloves

Normal gloves are often bulky, reducing your dexterity. However, heated gloves have a lower profile, so you can grab your weapon or even snack while in your tree stand without having to remove your gloves, which defeats the purpose of wearing gloves, to begin with. You’ll also find heated glove liners that you can slip into your favorite pair of gloves if you don’t want to purchase a new pair entirely.

2. Heated Shirts

You’ll find heated hunting gear for both men and women, and shirts are one thing that comes in different profiles for a man or a woman. A heated shirt will be snugger fit for a woman, keeping heat that much closer to her body. A shirt like this the perfect base to go with your vest, sweatshirt, and jacket. Some shirts even have ports for you to charge your phone.

3. Heated Socks

You’ve probably stuffed hand or foot warmers into the toes of your boots to keep warm in the past. Perhaps you’ve stomped around in an attempt to keep your heart pumping and temperature up. But extremities like your fingers and toes are the first body parts that feel the cold sink in. That’s precisely why heated socks make so much sense. The combination of battery-powered heat and wool keeps you cozy and warm no matter how cold it might be outside.

4. Heated Jackets

If you’re a practiced hunter, then you know to wear warm layers well before you even put on your jacket. A warming jacket can combat even the most extreme winter weather, so you don’t have to miss a day of hunting.

For people who want to wear their own jackets, a heated vest worn over the base layer but beneath the jacket offers comfort without compromise.

5. Heated Seats

Okay, so this last one isn’t something that you wear, but it’s something an avid hunter might want to take out to the woods, anyway! A heated seat or seat cushion keeps your backside warm as you wait for the perfect moment to strike. You won’t be rustling around and making noise, which could scare away your pray, as long as you’re comfortable.

Of course, you don’t have to be a hunter to enjoy heated gear. Winter sports enthusiasts also enjoy heated jackets, gloves, and even caps. And you might like the heated gear enough to wear it after hunting season has finished but the weather is still cold.

 

Not Traveling Far For the Holidays

Who’s excited for Christmas? I am. My household is super excited.  My darling daughter has already created her wishlist. She had a few expensive ones on there but I know she will appreciate what Santa would bring her on Christmas Day.

We are not traveling very far for the Holidays this year.  We are spending Christmas with my in-laws in Tyler. Our travel plans are still on, though.  We are thinking of vacationing next year for our 10th wedding anniversary to the Philippines.  Hopefully on Christmas Break.  As you know, making travel arrangements when you have a student is quite difficult because we need to consider the number of days the school is off. Normally, the school’s maximum break time is two weeks during the Holidays-which is nice, I think.

Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful Holidays with your loved ones. And be safe in traveling especially in the snow.

Travel And Hair Style Can Be Convenient

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Hello there! How are you doing? I hope you had a wonderful time traveling and visiting. One of my friends is in the Philippines right now. She and her whole fam bam is attending a family’s graduation ceremony. Wow. I wish I am in the Philippines right now. Oh wait, I was just there last year. Geez…it’s so nice to be on vacation.

I am saying this because so many people are traveling for the summer.  This week is the last week of school here in our district (Community ISD), and it is my darling daughter’s graduation day from Kindergarten tomorrow.  We haven’t got to sit down and talk about our summer travel plans just yet. I am ready for summer.

Anyway, this is the time when graduation parties are held.  There are so many invites to parties here and there. You have to be very wise on which ones to attend. Also, you will need to look gorgeous as well. Graduation party is a special event so you would want it to be memorable. Going to hair salon for hair style can be expensive and time consuming. Another idea to consider for good-looking hair-do is using wigs. Yes, wig usage has been trending years and years ago. Nowadays, you can even select different types of wig style, color, length, and volume. There are many selection of remy hair for sale on the Internet but BlackHairSpray.com has so many to choose from. They come in all kinds of style and length ranging from 10 inches to 18 inches. Awesome. In addition, wigs are convenient to carry when you’re traveling. There is no need to worry about bad hair day.

I have a thin frizzy hair and there is no hope of bringing its volume back to its fullness like the way it used to be when I was younger. So I guess I have to consider wearing a wig one of these days – for special occasion, of course. Why not?
