What (Not) to Wear?

This time of year is a favorite for many people.  Cooler temperatures, fall treats, first fires in the stove, and awesome color across the mountains here in Western North Carolina. About the only predicament this time of year is early in the morning while it is still dark outside, one stands in front of their wardrobe deciding what (not) to wear.  Is it going to be cool, warm, a mix of both?  These brisk fall days begin with a chill but what will afternoon bring? If it’s cloudy, it may stay cool.  If you are out in the sun, then you will most likely be warm. Dilemma alert!

Well, we have a resolution this fall that could help you all throughout the day, regardless of the weather. Solution…a vest. Product specialist, Jim Bourdy, at Take A Hike says, “If you keep your guts warm, so are your extremities!”
