Top-rated winter gear still at Black Friday prices
Just realized you missed a great opportunity to get all that winter gear you need at the lowest prices? Not all Black Friday deals are over. We found quite a few that are still marked way below retail price, so you don't need to wait until the dreary, downright frigid days of January to deal with the worst winter throws at you. From fashionable yet functional things to supplies you'll want to help tackle snow, ice, wind, and poor visibility, here are some great items still on sale.
One of the most aggravating things about driving in winter is getting all of that snow and ice off of your car before you take off. True Temper's 36-Inch Scratch-Free Snow Brush removes snow and ice from your windshield, under your wipers, and anywhere else where frost has taken over.
Particularly frigid days can leave your walkways and driveways slick with ice. Snow Joe's Steel Ice Chopper hacks away at ice, and the shock-absorbing handle reduces the impact on your joints.
If there's heavy snow blocking you from getting into your car in the first place, a portable shovel is in order. Hopkins Sub-Zero Auto Emergency Snow Shovel has an extendable handle to get under and around your wheels, then store easily in your trunk.
Remote car starter
Waiting for your ice-cold engine to warm up as you sit in your car during the winter is one of those small but unpleasant moments that make the coldest months particularly tough. A remote car starter from Avital lets you stay inside and warm up with coffee or cocoa while your engine heats up outdoors.
Sub-zero temperatures require thick thermal gloves to protect your fingers from frostbite. OZERO's Winter Gloves keep your hands toasty at temperatures as low as -20 degrees Fahrenheit.
If you're looking for a set of gloves and a hat at one low price, DG Hill's Winter Hat & Gloves Set has you covered with Thinsulate lining.
A warm-yet-stylish winter jacket is one of the first things you'll want to buy as you head into the colder months. Haven's Short Down Puffer Jacket is our pick for women's wear - it comes in three colors and has modern chevron quilting for an elevated look.
Columbia's Frost Fighter Insulated Jacket is our pick for men's winter jackets. The water and stain-repellent shell keeps each of the jacket's seven color options looking fresh until spring, and super warm faux-down insulation offers the ultimate warmth during winter's frostiest days.
No cold-weather ensemble is complete without a set of shoes that can withstand damp days and freezing nights. Water-resistant snow boots with skid-resistant soles from Collections, Inc. are available in men's and women's sizes, and they come with a fuzzy fleece lining to keep your feet extra warm.
If you need a taller boot, the company's Fleece-Lined Slip Resistant Winter Boot have the same safety features with more height and easy on-and-off hook and loop closures.
Hunting for a stylish scarf that's less than $20? Look no further than American Trends Classic Tassel Plaid Scarf. The ultra-soft fabric is reminiscent of cashmere without the sticker shock, and the oversized style means you can wrap it differently every day for a fresh look.
