Continuing my series from yesterday – here are a few more things that may help you survive what is left of winter in the Northern Hemisphere:

wcA pair of old-school wood snowshoes from Iversons

About the wood snowshoes from Iversons: “Our wood snowshoes provide nearly twice the flotation of metal shoes of the same weight. Our open lacing doesn’t accumulate snow or ice like the solid decks of the metal shoes. Iverson wood snowshoes provide superior traction with no “sled” effect. Metal snowshoes & ice are not good friends. Wood frames are rugged and flexible, plus they don’t freeze, or become brittle. Quality, we regularly re-lace our shoes that have been used hard for decades. You’ll wear out before they do, then it’s time to pass them down to the next generation. Iverson snowshoes are beautiful to display when not being used. We make our snowshoes in the USA – please support American workers. Our wood snowshoes are very quiet, our snowshoes are used by many top outfitters for this reason alone.”

whA Down Sweater Vest from Patagonia

About the Down Sweater Vests from Patagonia: “Simple, lightweight core warmth. The Down Sweater Vest’s minimalist design practically floats; its 800-fill-power down seals in warmth, yet is so compact that it stuffs into a stretch-mesh internal pocket (with a carabiner clip-in loop). The innovative 100% recycled polyester shell with a Deluge® DWR (durable water repellent) finish provides wind and water protection as well as a high tear-strength; quilting stabilizes the down. With zippered handwarmer pockets and a drawcord hem.”
