The labels say "Made in Djibouti". I suspect knock-offs.

I'm from NYC and just moved back here, right outside of Denver county lines (lived in Denver 9 years ago). From what I remember, winters are both colder and warmer than the east coast. There is just more variation. (They're also sunnier, but that applies year-round.) I once flew in at about 1am in January and it was 5 below. It has also been around 70 the day after a blizzard.

There's going to be a couple several day long periods where it will be single digits or negatives with wind where it will just be miserable out side. December-mid January is the worst time period, but there will be nice days in these months. Besides that it's not too harsh. You will need to drive in snow though.

I believe NY has at least 1 more month of green season than Denver does. It's brown from the end of October through mid April here. That would be the biggest downside IMO. The biggest upside is there's always some time throughout throughout every winter month where it will be nice enough to be enjoyable outside.

there is a noticeable temperature difference between sunrise and say mid afternoon. Like 20-30 degrees. The walk into work might be cool, the walk home might be warm so most outdoor people dress in layers.



-we get very little snow and what there is melts off mid day
-very few cloudy days
the above makes Denver an ideal city to walk to work almost EVERY day

Depends on where you come from - Upper Midwest? Denver is very mild for the winter. Northeast? Mild. California? Cold.

I will say when I lived there and returned to NJ around Christmas time NJ would be in the 40s and it felt colder than Denver would be at sunny and 35. The altitude and sunshine help things out, but expect a few days when it dips below 0 with highs in the single digits in December.

Please stop telling people from out of state that our Winters are nice. The average temperature is generally around -20 and it never stops snowing.

When kids go trick or treating at Halloween they have to walk house to house through snow tunnels, uphill both ways.
