The nights are drawing in and you're lucky to see sunlight by the time you finish work. It's very sad, we know, but those days will soon be over and you'll be frolicking on the beach in no time. In the meantime however, let's get practical - you're going to need to cover up from top to toe. One thing (or rather two things) that get overlooked whenever buying stuff for the winter are your hands. Keeping them warm in cold weather is as important as anything else; imagine trying to tie up your shoelaces or put up a tent in freezing weather with bare hands? It's the stuff of nightmares.
