Don't you even admit that winter has not been what it used to be for a long time? Here are tips on how to enjoy the mountains even in the winter without snow. Even if the terrain is not covered with a continuous layer of snow, you should prepare for cold, frost and winter. Do not underestimate your stay in the mountains and perfectly adapt to winter conditions and stay dry. PlanBefore you leave your house, it is best to plan your trip. We should not forget the schedule. Establish at least an approximate departure and arrival home. Keep in mind that it is rather dark in winter, so don't be surprised by the darkness and go on your hike in the morning. If you still want to experience adrenaline and go into the forest under the cover of the night, be sure to choose places you know well. Think of a sudden weather changeThe sun is shining, you are climbing uphill and gradually dropping warm layers of clothing. You can't even realize how the sky suddenly overcast and rain or snowstorm has come. In such cases, the ideal solution for you is to have a Plan B. Nothing happens when you throw clothes in your backpack that will keep you warm and so you can stay dry. Keep your feet dryHow to dress for hiking? Choose the ideal solution when you wear more thin layers of functional clothing to keep your clothing from moving. The cold is spreading from below, so your feet should stay in the dry first. Be sure not to wear new hiking boots that you have only tried in the store so far, as they might bother you. The popularity of mountain lovers enjoys different types of socks that will keep your feet warm even in extreme weather. Choose compression, thermo or heated socks. Compression socks are versatile and can be used in various sports. Tourists prefer it especially because they perfectly adapt to the left and right leg, are odorless and their seam is sewn by hand. If you want to have your feet in cotton and winter sports, and you often have cold feet, you should definitely try heated socks. Haven't you heard of them yet? Not only are they made of comfortable material, they also include a high-quality heating element that keeps the foot in ideal temperature. Choose suitable clothes and do not underestimate the additional equipmentPack the most important ones with you. Appropriate footwear, warm clothing and hiking accessories are the alpha and omega when visiting the mountains. Since childhood, mothers have dressed us like onions. For field trips, you should choose the same way of dressing and layering onion from high-quality thermal underwear to thermal insulation and protective clothing. When you get warm and warm, you will have no problem gradually removing one layer of clothing. Do not forget to pack spare clothes such as socks, hats, gloves or thermal clothing. If you are planning a longer stay in the cold mountain air, your hands will surely thank you, unless you forget to pack heated gloves in your backpack. With this tip-top glove you will enjoy the winter to the fullest. Do you remember skiing when you could hardly feel your fingers? Heated gloves contain a heating element, so your hands are always warm.Happiness wishes you ready, so you should not forget about additional equipment. Before the hike, you need to make a list of things that should be an integral part of your backpack. But don't take too many things. Even a heavy backpack can trouble every tourist. If you are looking for a more challenging hike, be sure to attach cats to your backpack to allow you to move on difficult terrain. Do not take unnecessary risksIf you have mastered your preparation for winter hiking in the mountains, do not underestimate the mountains as such. They are devious. Mountain rescuers help day-to-day tourists who find themselves in a dangerous situation as well as those who risk unnecessarily risking their own routes off the hiking trails. Don't overestimate your skills. Do not risk taking unnecessary photos that you would like to hang on social networks. Unhappiness does not go to the mountains, but to people. Continue

Let's go through them:Stress or anxiety – the body reacts by pumping adrenaline into the bloodstream, causing the blood vessels to narrow and blood flow to the peripheral parts of the body to be reduced. It's a body defensive mechanism that saves energy in case a stressful situation leads to injuries.Problems with blood circulation – Insufficient blood circulation may be caused by sedentary work. Reduced blood flow may also be due to smoking or high cholesterol.Anemia – If the blood does not contain enough functional red blood cells, the cells in the tissues are not adequately supplied with oxygen. A serious illness may cause this case, but sometimes it will help to change the diet. Iron, vitamin B12 or folic acid benefit from blood circulation.Diabetes – Problems with blood circulation may also occur to people with diabetes. High sugar levels can cause narrowing of blood vessels and poor blood circulation. Uncontrolled sugar levels can lead to nerve damage that results in a feeling of tingling, sneezing, numbness or burning of the feet.Nervous disorders – Disease or injury where nerve damage has occurred may be the cause of cold feet. Most often it is the result of frostbite, infection, liver, kidney or geneticsHypothyroidism – In case of absence of thyroid function problems with metabolism occur. It affects the blood circulation, heartbeat and body temperature in the body, so the problems can arise in the form of cold feet. In this case, other symptoms such as fatigue, irritation, or memory problems become more common.HOW TO FIGHT COLD FEETIn case you have a sedentary job you should think of regular walks throughout the day. Physical activities help restore correct blood circulation in the body. Warm foot baths can also help - their effect can last for the whole day.Another option is heaters. These can be in the form of heated socks or insoles. Socks are definitely a better choice because you can use them without footwear and get rid of the cables and batteries. You can use the heated insoles only in shoes, so you probably do not want to sit at home in the boots.If the cold feet problem repeat, you should visit your doctor. There is a likelihood that it is a manifestation of a more serious illness. Sometimes a lifestyle change is enough. Continue

The whole idea of creating an e-shop with heated products arised in my head in December 2017. I am professional skicross skier and I have problems with cold feet for many years. I noticed there are some heated insoles on the market, so I started to search on the internet. After a very long search, I found an unnamed e-shop in the Czech Republic. I did not hesitate to order heated insoles. Not really insoles but heated elements for insoles due to the fact that I use custom made insoles in my ski boots.My coach made me think that I'd instead buy heated socks. But I had in mind our 3-4 weeks long trips around Europe. How could I stay with one pair of socks? I was stubborn and now I have to say he was right. Heated elements are not strong enough and in Sweden, at -20 degrees I did not feel them much. My coach had, of course, heated socks and he was joking me all the time...But let's go back to my order in 2017 and the idea of why this e-shop started. When I did my order I knew that "insoles" will arrive in 2 weeks and I needed them immediately. I tried to visit all the ski shops in our town, but they were not in stock anywhere. So I had to wait. And here comes the first idea to create an e-shop with heating products. I'm a skier, and I spend most of the time in cold weather so I can test all the products and present them in skiing community... I'm going to do it!In the summer we started to work on all possible things and after three months we are finally launching our internet shop which was created by my web development company SVK media :)Currently, we offer just LENZ products, but in the upcoming weeks, we will offer you brands THERM-IC, HOTRONIC and VIKING. Believe me, we'd like to have as many brands as possible in our portfolio right now but we're trying to make things in a different way. That's why everything takes a lot of time.We also plan to add other language mutations to the web site, but I will not tell you exact dates. I believe you like our web site and you will become our fans.Keep your fingers crossed and I can tell you we plan some giveaways in next weeks.Tom Continue
