If anybody needs Clyde Cold wearher riding gear.....

Just passing this along: Walmart has some long sleeve wicking foundation shirts and windproof/water resistant pants and shells out. Pants up to 50 waist (and a little loose if the 40/42 size is an indicator), and shells to 2X. Same with the long sleeve wicking foundation shirts. As I said, I just thought I'd pass this along!

Tom,

Are the wicking foundation shirts in packages or are they hanging? I have been looking there but haven't seen these. I did get a Starter windproof/rain resistant jacket the other day that has the wicking inner material and the vent in the back. They had them all the way up to 3XL. Plus they have reflective striping on them. I wear mine with a base layer shirt on really cold days and it has been plenty warm.

They are hanging, not wrapped. Long sleeve. Here I am in foundation and facemask for real cold air. I look like a big ninja! Just add the jersey, fleece, shell, windproof outer pants and helmet, and I'm good down to -15F! I do also have some heavier gloves as well!

I picked up that exact same shirt last year and have worn it almost daily all year, seriously! I even used it as a base layer when I went whitetail, duck, and woodcock hunting and it has held up quite well.
The Wal-Mart around here is useless, period! They cater to different types of people than me I guess. Hell, they even took out half the sporting goods department to make room for car stereos. They rarely have any good winter "sports" clothing.
