Seriously: it's refreshing. Just do what you like and what feels comfortable for you. Then ride...

I know what you mean. Some guys our age can pull it off, but most people over 40 really should "Just say no" to Spandex (and keep their shirts on--please!).

I liked Anoraks better than Jackets .. for the kangaroo pocket and the hand warmer pockets on the front for snacks , cough drops and glove storage,

And the absence of a zipper up the center lets the anorak flex better, pedaling . IMO

Too bad they dont include separable pits to hem zippers on both the sides.. mine had none..

I tour with 2 kids that are always hot then cold and back again. Always changing. One day I tried starting the am with them in shorts and my arm war ears on their leggs. When they warmed up it was just a few seconds to peel them off and stick them in a pocket. Very quickly they learned to put them on or roll them up or take them off on their own. A great solution for us.
