weather I'm skiing in a whiteout at 11,000 feet on Mount Rainier, or biking around in a blizzard when I was going to school in snow country, I'm always amazed at how little i need to wear to stay warm when I am active. Today i started out with 2 thin wool t shirts and an athletic jacket with shorts, and wound up peeling one of the t's off for the afternoon riding. I wonder what you were wearing today, Vrkelley?
I don't get a chance to do really thick layers much at sea level around puget sound, but even skiing at 11,000 feet at 15 degrees with 60 mph winds, a wool base layer, sweater and windproof layer will keep you warm as toast. for most biking around pugetopolis its even less.
