Do you know what core temperature the body has to be at before hypothermia settles in? If not, huddle around the wood stove and we’ll tell you. By all expert accounts, it’s 95 degrees Fahrenheit and things only tend to go downhill from there. So why run the risk of letting loved ones get more than a bad case of the shivers during their outdoor adventures, especially when there’s winter apparel available that may help warm their hearts and bodies? Let’s take beanies, headbands and winter gloves as examples.
At Pugs, many of our winter gloves, headbands and beanies are made from a tight-weaved knit. According to various studies that have been completed over the years, it is one of the best fabrics available when it comes to keeping a person nice and warm. It’s true and you can find some of those studies published in periodicals like the Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry, FIBERS & Textiles in Eastern Europeand the Journal of Industrial Textiles. Of course you and your loved ones will need to don more than just high quality gloves, beanies and headbands in order to stay protected from the elements.
Make sure that everyone dresses in enough layers, puts on waterproof snow boots and wears polarized shades. Many people forget about the polarized shades in their haste to get outside, but they really shouldn’t. Why? Without them, they could end up with dry eyes and a very unpleasant health condition known as photokeratitis. It happens most often when the winter sun’s rays bounce off of the snow and ice, then back towards a person’s eyes. If exposed to such conditions long enough, it could cause temporary vision loss.
