Winter Coat With a Hood

Every resident of the northeastern United States will confirm the importance of having a solid winter coat if you’re going to be traveling and lodging in the area during the winter season. As Livingston has a harsh winter climate, it is of the utmost importance to have a warm, reliable winter coat. For maximum warmth, the coat should have a hood to shield your head and be long enough to protect your mid thighs and the backs of your thighs.

Waterproof Boots

In addition to a warm coat, you’ll need waterproof snow boots, such as boots from L.L. Bean or Sorel. Waterproof snow  boots will not only keep your feet heated, but they will also keep your feet dry and snug while you’re out and about exploring Livingston.
