Protect your hands. That may sound like an incredibly obvious and unnecessary statement but it is the truth. Your hands are amazing tools and they are pretty tough but they are also highly prone to injury. Especially cold injury. They are also great heat radiators and very important to good ventilation when you are working hard in the boonies. From rope rescue work to shooting to mountaineering, good gloves are the answer to many problems and in my opinion, you can never have enough of the good ones.
