Whether you're climbing to higher altitudes or hiking on trails closer to home, you may be faced with exceptionally low temperatures. If this is the case, you need to be well equipped so that you don't suffer the consequences of the extreme cold. When temperatures drop below five degrees, we are exposed to a range of problems, including a loss of dexterity and musculoskeletal disorders. You should also note that, as our extremities are particularly sensitive, it is also possible to suffer from chilblains or cracks to the skin, which can be particularly painful.
In order to protect yourself from potential injuries caused by the extreme cold, you need a pair of suitable gloves so that you can stay nice and warm while you hike or trek. It is certainly common to really feel the cold on our hands, feet and head. And so, wearing gloves will provide you with some comfort, thanks to their much-appreciated warmth.
