Durability in women’s clothing and accessories isn’t easy to find. Manufacturers typically think women are looking strictly for fashion, not for function. Women need tough work gloves, hats, and belts too. Fortunately, Carhartt, a leading manufacturer of heavy-duty work clothes, offers accessories for women that will last through the toughest job. If you have a lady on your gift list that’s looking for hardcore work gear, here’s a look at seven of Carhartt’s best winter accessories-gloves, hats, and socks.
Carhartt Accessories for Women: Women’s Utility Glove Grade Pigskin
This glove is made for the hard-working woman in mind. It’s constructed of pigskin for excellent grip and has a stretchy spandex backing that will form-fit to your hands. The glove palm is has gel padding for extra protection. Unfortunately, only one color, “Green Tea” is available and it’s not very pretty. But this is Carhartt, not Calvin Klein, so what to you expect?

Yes, it’s true-Carhartt can be fashionable! These sleek leather driving gloves are the best of both worlds, combining fashion with function.

This cozy-looking cable knit hat from Carhartt is actually pretty cute! Two colors are available – Dusty Pink and Green Tea. The fabric is 100% acrylic and is lined in 92% polyester, 8% spandex fleece. The Carhartt logo is embroidered on the front. This makes an excellent cold weather accessory to any Carhartt jacket and is stylish enough to wear with a fancier, going-out-on-the-town jacket.
Carhartt Accessories for Women: Carhartt Women’s Striped Knit Hat
Normally, you wouldn’t use the word “cute” and “Carhartt” in the same sentence, but this hat is Carharrt and-surprise-it’s cute! A rainbow striped design adorns this hat; a far cry from Carhartt’s typical mustard yellow and brown offerings! The outer shell is made of 100% acrylic rib knit and the warm lining is made of 90% polyester and 10% spandex fleece. This hat makes an excellent gift for the lady who works outdoors and still enjoys looking stylish.
Carhartt Accessories for Women: Carhartt Women’s Striped Gaiter
This neck warmer features the same striped pattern as the knit cap, so it’s a great matching winter accessory if you’re also buying the hat. It’s made of 100% acrylic. The material is stretchy–one-size-fits-all. In extreme cold temperatures, neck gaiters are a blessing. This Carhartt cold weather accessory would be a welcome gift for any outdoorswoman.
Carhartt Accessories for Women: Carhartt Women’s Steel Toed Boots Socks
Anyone who works long hours in cold weather knows how important a good pair of socks are and this pair from Carhartt is no exception. These socks go up to the mid-calf, and have reinforced arch support, heel, and toe. The special fabric controls temperature, and wicks away moisture. Two colors are available: “Rope” and “Gray.” Socks make excellent stocking stuffers-this would be perfect to throw in the stocking! These aren’t the kind of socks to wear with dress pants; they’re definitely an outdoorsy footwear accessory.
Carhartt Accessories for Women: Carhartt Fleece Women’s Headband
Some women prefer wearing a headband rather than a hat. This headband from Carhartt is made of a polyester/spandex fabric blend with an inner fleece lining for extra warmth. The Carhartt logo is etched on the headband, and it has a ponytail opening in the back. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a headband with that feature before! Four colors are available.
Carhartt might not be known for its chic style, but for functional, warm winter accessories, the quality and price can’t be beat. If you have an outdoorswoman on your list-whether she works construction, enjoys outdoor winter sports, or just wants a good pair of gloves to keep her warm-you might want to consider getting her Carhartt cold winter accessories.
