Don’t wait until it’s too late to update your winter riding wardrobe. To make the process a little easier, we’ve assembled this handy step-by-step guide to staying warm.
- STEP 1
Start with a base layer. And no, we’re not talking about the bulky waffle-weave long johns you wore as a kid. SmartShape Base Layer Tights paired with a SmartShape Base Layer Crew Neck creates the ultimate high-performance base layer, offering comfort, warmth and moisture-wicking breathability.
- STEP 2
Find a great pair of winter breeches. It’s harder than it sounds, we know–many of them are either too stiff, too baggy, too slick, too thick, or too weird-fitting to be appealing. Allow us to introduce you to SmartPak Winter Full Seat Pull on Tights and SmartPak Winter Knee Patch Pull on Tights. They look great, feel great and will keep you warm in the saddle all winter long.
On the coldest of cold winter days, add one more outer layer–the SmartPak Winter Overpant–for total protection from the elements.
- STEP 3
Layer, layer, layer! How to do so without looking and feeling like the Stay-Puff Marshmallow Man? Stick with layers that are lightweight and flexible yet warm, like the Alexis Waffle Tech 1/4 Zip Top by SmartPak.
- STEP 4
Give cold feet the boot. We’re talking, of course, about the new Solstice Winter Paddock Boot by SmartPak. Featuring a rugged, chunky outsole that offers great traction in winter’s worst weather and a cozy faux-fur lining, they’re designed for all-day, waterproof warmth.
- STEP 5
Top it all off with the coat of your choice. The coat of OUR choice happens to be the Alexus Hipster Puffy Jacket by SmartPak. With 120 grams of fill and a wind and water resistant shell, it’s as functional as it is stylish.
Got that, Horse Nation? I don’t know about you, but I feel a little warmer already.
Go SmartPak, and Go Riding!
