    Great 100% Merino wool under layer

    After a couple of months of using these in the cold weather, I can say that they are a great 100% wool jersey for $60ish

    Can you describe what "cold" means to you? What else do you wear in the cold? How long is your ride? Inquiring minds wish to have a few more details.

    Boston cold; riding in the 20's. 26 mile r/t commute, layer wool and polypro under Pearl Izimu windblock shell with those big old Lobster mitts, winblock beanie and neck gaiter, heavy winter tights. Heavy wool socks with a pair of LL Bean "Snow Sneakers" have solved the cold feet problem. It isn't pretty, but it keeps me riding Wool has the added advantage of not getting smelly... I can wear these jerseys 2 or 3 times between washing (now that's certainly TMI

    I miss Bay Area winters, I was out there for 15 years

    Thanks stedanrac. That indeed is COLD and a long ride. I think I need to invest in a softshell outer layer. Underarmour, long sleeved 80s jersey and a windbreaker aren't quite warm enough when it gets cold. My commute home is always after 9pm. Lower temps with a bit of wind and I barely warm up and sometimes get cold waiting at red lights.
