5 Essential Items for Winter + Deals!
Living in Alaska is wonderful. Not only do you get to enjoy nature, you also get to met extraordinary people. With the beauty of Alaska also comes the harsh winters and lots of snow. I thought I would share a list of 5 Essential Items to have for Winter.
Having a nice, warm coat or parka makes life a lot warmer living up North. I love parkas that are supersoft and cozy. They are great at keeping me warm and protect me from the harsh winters.
Heat can escape from your body pretty fast when it’s cold outside. Having a good pair of Winter Boots is essential on staying warm. It is also important to have good traction on your boots. If you live in Alaska I recommend that you have 100% waterproof boots for winter.
Vehicles are a wonderful invention. They get us from place to place, but from time to time they can break down especially in cold temperatures. It is important to have bright clothes so that others can see you. This can include bright hats, gloves and a nice warm pair of snow pants. Just something on you that lets others notice you.
It is important to be prepared before the cold weather hits. One item that is important to have is an Emergency Car Kit.
emergency kits can include flashlights, flares, basic tools, first aid supplies, jumper cables, thermal blankets, snacks, etc. Amazon has a nice selection of Emergency Car Kits.
My hands tend to get cold fast in the cold Alaska air. Having a good, warm, waterproof pair of gloves is essential for my safety and warmth. Winter hats are not only fun and fashionable, but they are also important to keep heat in. Having a good Winter hat is important for winter.
There are some great sales going on right now too for you to grab some essential winter gear.
