    I got tired of cleats, the shoes, the hotfoot and they didn't really help me because I don't race. They are just an overhyped pain in the ass in my opinion.

    When it gets below 20, I wear my ski helmet and goggles with a neck gaiter. The helmet covers the ears well and the goggles don't fog at all.
