No matter what my groundhog friend saw yesterday there is still plenty of winter to come – especially up here in northern New England. One of the great things about the winter season when February comes around is that many of the winter products still in stores have been marked down. It is a good time to treat yourself to something special to enjoy in the final days of the season or to stock up for next year.

Today and tomorrow, I am presenting a few things on my list that will help get me through the next “six weeks” of winter:

ThrowA Throw Bed from Hedge House

About the Throw Bed from Hedge House: “What is a Throw Bed? It’s a down and fiber filled cushion that is roughly the same size as a twin bed. The cushion is covered in a removable and washable linen or cotton cover. It comes to you rolled up in a matching bag with a shoulder strap. It’s completely portable and very versatile.”

waA helmet for skating and skiing from Bern – like the G2

About the G2 helmet from Bern: “The high-end G2 is a second generation helmet from the original G. (The G stands for Genius.) The G2 features a removable brim visor plus an adjustable slider system for maximum comfort in all the elements. ‘From my mountain bike in the Spring to deep pow days in Little Cottonwood in December, the G2 rocks. The new small shell is insane.’ – Dan Withey, Alta icon.”

wbThe Yakima Wool Blanket from Pendleton Woolen Mills

About the Yakima Wool Blanket from Pendleton Woolen Mills: “Camp blankets were first designed to meet the rigorous demands of the wild and untamed Pacific Northwest and were a favorite of the early sheepherders in the Northwest. Today, these warm and hardy blankets offer outstanding service and rugged styling that will provide years of warmth and comfort. They are tough enough for everything from fish camp to sleeping porch to kids’ bunk beds.”

wgThe Engineer Sweater from Brook Farm General Store

About the Engineer Sweater from Brook Farm General Store: “The Engineer sweater is an extremely warm, old-fashioned, wool work sweater. The design is based on a 1940s U.S mechanics sweater, and it is made using the same wool and gauge as the cult favorite Submariner sweater. With a contrast knit v-neck and shoulders, a ribbed waist, and inset arm. These handsome sweaters are thick, very warm, and designed to keep you toasty and debonaire through an entire day in the field.”
