For some people, winter is a time to retreat indoors, cozy up on the couch, and maybe catch up on the news or popular shows. For others though, winter is just another time to be active, whether it be skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, or winter hiking.
If you fall in the latter category, you’re not alone. According to Ask Your Target Market’s latest survey, an estimated 30% of us enjoy hobbies related to the outdoors and 20% of us are drawn to sports or athletic-related hobbies. What’s more, well over half of us tend to have multiple hobbies, while nearly a quarter of us have just one specific hobby.

The same survey revealed that our hobbies can drive a lot of our purchases too. For example, an estimated 29% of respondents said that they often make purchases related to their hobbies, while 51% sometimes make hobby-related purchases.

There are a lot of reasons that so many of us enjoy winter hobbies and, subsequently, make purchases that support our hobbies. For some, it’s the competitive drive to traverse challenging terrain,while others are drawn to the peaceful, quiet seclusion.

Whatever your motivation, the natural beauty of the surrounding landscape likely plays a role in your enjoyment of the outdoors. If you’re a winter hobby enthusiast, you’ve probably seen your share of early morning sunrises, snow-capped mountains peeking out above the clouds, and expansive views that are nothing short of mesmerizing.

Capturing this natural beauty is another story, however. You either risk getting your phone wet or smashed in your pack, or you carry onerous equipment for the entire trip. Fortunately, companies like Hitcase have made this endeavor easier with phone accessories that are light and easily transportable. Phone camera lens attachments, cases, and other mounting accessories can take your outdoor hobbies to the next level and help you document each step of your adventure.

A high-quality iPhone camera lens is one such accessory that lets you easily document those beautiful panoramic shots without worrying about damaging your lens or phone along the way. Look for a camera lens that has an anti-reflective and anti-scratch coating to guarantee a perfect shot. Also make sure the lens is waterproof, dust-proof, and snow-proof so it can withstand the trek.

To capture the perfect nature shot, select a wide lens to capture as much detail into the frame as possible. Also look for lenses that include two element glass lenses to avoid the vignette effect.

Another must-have accessory for any winter hobbyist is a waterproof case. The last thing you want is to hike miles out to a picturesque peek, capture the perfect shot, and then drop your phone or ruin it in a pocket full of snow.

You might have traditionally eschewed waterproof cases, associating them with bulky, unresponsive encasements. However, new generations of cases are slim and responsive while also adding much-needed protection against unexpected moisture and falls. Choose a waterproof iPhone case that is still fully responsive to touch and face identification while keeping water out. Also look for designs with easy port access in case you want to add some nice background music to the outdoor ambiance.

Hikers, skiers, and snowboarders alike all have one thing in common: a love for the outdoors. Now you can take those beautiful views with you by capturing them with a high-quality, durable phone camera lens.
