Those who are interested in motorsports during the winter months may consider riding snowmobiles, which requires proper apparel. Among the apparel that snowmobile riders typically seek are jackets, gloves, pants, and boots. Like gear that is designed for riding motorcycles, the protective apparel must serve two objectives. In addition to keeping riders comfortable, it must also keep them safe.
Snowmobile apparel must keep riders warm and dry during their excursions. Many of the pieces are made using waterproof textiles. A lot of the snowmobile apparel is also breathable, allowing perspiration to escape from the body. To keep warm, snowmobile riders may choose to layer casual clothing, such as fleece liners and thermal underwear, underneath their outer garments. Many styles of snowmobiling gloves extend well beyond the wrists to shield the skin from low temperatures and the wind.
In addition to helping them stay warm, snowmobile apparel can provide riders with a degree of safety. Some styles of jackets and pants are outfitted with reflectors for the RECCO Avalanche Rescue System. These reflectors are not present on gloves, as gloves may come off in the event of an accident. When coupled with other safety measures, these devices can contribute to faster recoveries.
At Up North Sports, customers will find an extensive selection of apparel for snowmobile riding. In addition to apparel, they can find gear for their snowmobiles, including tools, windshields, spark plugs, and skid plates.
