37 Things You Need For Getting Outdoors This Winter

  via Amazon  

I know I’m not alone on this – winter is the absolute worst time of year. My lips are chapped, there’s ice on the roads, my back muscles can’t seem to relax no matter how hard I try, the list goes on. But we can’t just not go outside because it’s cold, right?

Because we have no choice, the best we can do is find the easiest way to stay warm. Getting outside this time of year can be fun (I guess), if you can feel your toes – so thermal socks are a must; but you also need functional things like ice-melting salt and traction cleats if it gets to the extreme lows. So, before it gets any colder, I wanted to put together a list of some of Amazon’s best items under $35 to keep you warm this winter!
