Getting cold when you are out and about can make a trip outdoors a miserable affair.
So, enter Trekmates, a father and son enterprise which since 1997 has been creating great value gloves and hats for adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts.
They have developed innovative new evolutions to overcome the challenges often encountered outdoors, using their vast experience as walkers, climbers and general lovers of the outdoors to create these exceptionally functional accessories that are essential during any outdoor adventures.
And in a bid to get ready for the winter, the firm has launched a new range of products to keep you toasty.
Highlights for the winter include the Thaw Mitt and Glove at £35, which maximises warmth while minimising pack size. The gloves are windproof and water resistant and have Primaloft ™ Gold Eco insulation, made from recycled materials and a cosy fleece lining, as well as a very useful stuff sack with a key grip.
The Gully Glove is a tough, waterproof, insulated and highly breathable Gore-Tex and Gore Active glove with Primaloft ™ Gold and Pittards Leather palm for added warmth and dexterity. It also has a Sherpa pile lining for thermal protection and microfleece lining at the palm, making it a high performance glove at an affordable price of £100.
For the head, the range includes the Stormy Dry Knit High, which is a waterproof, windproof and breathable knitted beanie hat with a fleece lining and priced at £25.
The Lowick GTX hat at £37, is a warm winter Gore-tex winter hat with a Sherpa lining for waterproof, windproof and breathable protection and the Annat Beanie at £12, which is a warm, lightweight beanie made from Polartec™Micro fleece. There is also an Annat Neck Gaiter at £10 and Annat Headband for £18, also made from the fleece.
Both the gloves and the headgear come in a range of bright and dark colours to suit your style and the online shop gives information on sizes and styles, with shipping free on orders over £35.
