Earmuffs outside the eruv


[Introductory note: Both earmuffs and gloves function as garments, and therefore they should be fine for wearing on Shabbat without an eruv. However, one may not wear garments without an eruv if there is a reasonable possibility that one might remove them, such as to display them for someone. Hence the following halachah.]

One may wear earmuffs on Shabbat outside an eruv, especially on days that are very cold. There is no concern that one might remove them, due to the cold. This is certainly true according to the view that one may wear gloves outside an eruv, even though gloves are removed from time to time.

(Rivivot Ephraim 1:223:9)

Have a great day,
