8 Tips for warm hikes
There’s no doubt that nothing can ruin a great walk in the woods like freezing. Dressing correctly when going on a walk in the forest is crucial to having a good experience. Heat Experience has therefore created a practical guide on how to dress correctly when going out in the cold, without having to resort to changing clothes all the time. With our guide, you don’t have to worry about freezing on the trip. We’ll show you how to dress both warm and right, and best of all – it doesn’t have to involve using battery-powered thermals, although few things beat the luxury of being able to regulate the warmth of your clothes instead of taking them on and off wear clothes throughout the trip.
Here are our 8 tips for warm walks in Norwegian nature.
- Dress in several layers of clothing, and always wool on the inside.
- Apart from wool, you should have technical garments that protect against weather and wind and/or our products that produce heat. It is important to choose clothing that ventilates excess heat and moisture.
- Always wear a hat when it’s cold.
- Keep your hands warm! On the very coldest winter days, mittens are recommended instead of gloves. Check out our All Mountain Warm Gloves or Everyday Warm Mittens :
- Don’t take too much with you on a trip. A large and heavy bag makes you sweat and struggle more than necessary. Pack light!
- Most people stay warm when they are in motion. The most critical period is when you sit down for a break, or, for example, for posting while hunting. If you combine a warm and sweaty body with slightly damp clothes, it will quickly get cold! With battery-powered heated garments, you can dry your clothes during the break instead of buying new clothes. This saves you both time and energy.
- Eat well with food on tour. The body needs energy to stay warm.
- Wear large shoes, which have room for wool and/or heated soles. A well-known military trick is to wear bread bags in your shoes. But we clearly prefer heated soles.
