I'll begin with my personal experience. Roofing is already an extremely demanding job, but when winter time comes, it's a whole different animal. The freezing wind and early mornings really take it's toll on the human body and mind, but the biggest thing to help me was heated gloves, like these Full Leather Heated Work Gloves.
When humans sense cold weather, the autonomic nervous system shunts blood flow from the extremities to the vital organs, resulting in freezing hands and feet. These heated gloves (and socks) really helped me get thru some tough winter days.
For those of you who don't know, an arborist is basically someone who cuts down trees. It's a difficult and dangerous job, and is extremely high in demand in the winter time due to snow & ice taking down trees.
This job is spent standing or leaning in one place for an extended period of time, so you can get cold pretty quickly from remaining still in the cold weather. This is a great job for our Heated Skin-Fit Base Layer & leather work gloves as mentioned above.
3. Commercial Fishermen
Combine the freezing temperatures of winter, sub-freezing winds, and ice-cold water... you have a pretty tough career. In my opinion, fishermen probably have the coldest jobs on this list.
No matter how hard you try, you will get wet as a fisherman. However, if you wear waterproof boots, our heated socks will guarantee to keep your feet warm all day and night.
You may be thinking, "How could a farmer grow crops in the cold?" Well, there are a variety of ways. Cold frames & greenhouses are the most common, but there are also some plants that can grow in the cold.
Also, factor in all the autumn crops - pumpkins & apples ripen during a pretty cold part of the year, especially at night time. Just because there isn't snow on the ground doesn't mean it's not frigid! Our Heated Daily Glove is great for this career.
5. Dog Walker
Believe it or not, this career is absolutely exploding. Busy people are now hiring other people to walk their dogs while they're at work, and it's catching on pretty quickly.
Now there isn't anywhere else to walk a dog besides outside, and you know what you have to do once the dog is done. Our Heated Daily Glove also works great for this, seeing as you're going to have your hands out of your pockets walking the dog and cleaning up after it anyways.
Thanks for reading, hopefully I helped you find a gift for that hard to shop for loved one!
See you next week!
P.S. No matter who it is, our classic Unisex FNDN Heated Gloves make a great & thoughtful gift.
