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.

There are so many activities going in a National Night Out:  pony rides, bounce houses, giveaways from sponsors, free food, free music, K9 show, barrel ride…to name a few. This also a good time to meet and know your neighbors.  This way, we can help each other in fighting crimes in our communities. This is held usually in big areas like city parks.

After all the fun activities, NNO always ended with a fabulous fireworks show.  We loved it.
