When the snow starts to fall and the temperatures drop, it’s time to start thinking about winter ATV riding gear. Here is a recreational ATV riding resource guide with some essential items to help you enjoy the winter riding season.
When it comes to ATV riding, there is no such thing as bad weather, only bad gear. If you’re properly dressed for the conditions, then you can ride in comfort no matter what mother nature throws your way. And when it comes to riding in winter conditions, there are a few key pieces of gear that you’ll need in order to stay warm and dry.
Just because the weather is cold, doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite hobby. With the right gear, you can stay warm and dry while you enjoy the great outdoors.
Here’s a list of must-have winter ATV riding gear.
What Do You Wear When Riding An ATV In The Cold?
There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to dressing for cold weather ATV riding.
First, dress in layers. You want to be able to adjust your clothing as needed to stay comfortable. A base layer of wool or synthetic material will help wick away sweat and keep you warm even when wet.
An insulating layer will help trap in heat, and a wind- and waterproof outer layer will protect you from the elements.
Second, make sure you’re dressed for the occasion. If you’ll be riding in deep snow, for example, you’ll want to wear boots that come up over your ankles and pants that are designed to shed snow.
Finally, don’t forget about your hands and feet. Hand warmers can be a lifesaver when it’s cold out, and socks and gloves designed for cold weather will help keep your extremities from turning into popsicles.
