    Oh, just polyester, thin pants used for jogging or whatever. They make the "swish" sound sometimes when you walk.

    I did the same thing yesterday, got home after a nice cool ride that wasn't too cold at the beginning. What a great feeling.

    38-48*F this morning (3 hours of gravel and singletrack with a bit of road)

    Sporthill XC pants over my bib. My first time out with them and they were too warm, I didn't feel chilled even when I first started out on the road. 32*F and below is probably their appropriate range. However, I didn't feel too wet and was still comfy as it got warmer, so I'd say they have a forgiving temp range.

    champion C9 cold weather base layer and nike long-sleeve running shirt. Just a bit cool on the road, unzipped the 1/2 zip on the nike shirt for the single-track.

    48f this morning in a light rain. I wore my showers pass rainjacket, which is excellent and worth the money. And O2 rainpants which are reasonably priced and keep me totally dry. In the light stuff I wear Louis Garneau Stoptech shoe covers which are wearing out after 2 1/2 years. The right is starting to leak. In a heavy downpour I wear the Showers Pass commuter shoe covers which will handle anything Mother Nature throws at them. My feet stay totally dry. Highly recommended for the serious everyday commuter. In the frigid stuff 40 and below it's Sporthill all the way.

    today I wore a motel shower cap over my helmet due to the rain. It worked great and even fit over my visor. the elastic was tight enough to keep it on with being to tight as to bend the visor. the cap isn't baggy at all - seems custom made and I like that it is very thin because perhaps the reflective tape still reflected ...?

    10F - clear and sunny, no wind - a little ice and snow

    Performance fleece balaclava -
    Underarmour tactical long sleeve baselayer - love the underarmour compression stuff
    Patagonia merino wool 3 long sleeve - very thin but warm
    generic cashmere zip sweater - rarely used, too warm really
    Mountain Hardwear transition zip-t - used most of the year even in summer
    Hind cycling shorts - no longer made and I am down to my last pairs
    Hind munich tights - 15 years of use and abuse and still going strong
    Sombrio roam pants - waterproof convertible to shorts mountain-biking pants
    Underarmour socks - knee highs I found at Marshalls for $2/2 pairs
    Dadora patrol shoes - don't breathe so they are like a poor man's winter shoe
    PBK booties - don't work worth a dang and are falling apart after 3 days
    Pearl Izumi lobster amfib gloves - big honking mitts that only kind of work below 10F, my thumbs still get cold

    -28C or so this morning.
    -Balaclava
    -Winter jacket
    -Heavy winter mitts
    -Long Johns, jeans and "rain" pants
    -Cotton "sport socks" wool socks, combo boot-shoes

    I took off my googles (due to fogging) for the 2nd time this morning. It was a little cold on the exposed skin, but nothing too bad and the clear vision more than made up for it. The top and hands were too hot and the lower body was just right, little cool, but not cold. Will have to figgue something else out for the upper body.

    PG - There's nothing better than a base weight merino sweater under another sweater... I wear 200 weight polar fleece pants (Mec) under my jeans and haven't had a need for my shell pants yet.

    I bet you had a big assed smile on your face when you rode in today.. so far I have only been out for a 10 block stroll to drop the girls off and what keeps me warm and cozy on the bike isn't quite enough for walking in these temps.

    I did get some new boots with a -30 C rating and added some felt insoles... these have been wonderful for walking and riding.

    8F this morning- I've been doubling up on shirts, gloves, and socks this spell below 20. Today was a hair warmer than yesterday (or is 8F 133% the warmth of 6F?). I found, the other night, a pair of vanishingly thin fleece glove liners. Today I decided to put them into action, if 2 is good, 3 must be better! So I put on the fleece liner first, then the ~3/16"-ish wool liners, then finally the gore-texy gloves. I've been doubling up the gloves since below freezing. I had screaming pain in my fingers around 2 miles into my ride, so I stopped and took the fleece layer out and went back to my usual doubled setup. Recovered pretty well, had a bit more finger pain than usual when I got the office but it cleared up quickly enough.

    Torso
    Underarmour long-sleeve compression shirt, cashmere sweater, MH transition windstopper zip-t, high-viz windbreaker

    Notes
    Hard to keep the glasses from fogging in the first 15 minutes. Froze some toes after the first 20 minutes. I broke down and ordered some Lake winter shoes and Gore storm socks. My hands get cold sometimes but sometimes they are okay. Tough to figure out what is causing them to freeze up sometimes and sometimes they are fine. The front of my balaclava froze into a solid chunk of ice when I removed it from my mouth.

    Notes
    7 mile commute. Took me about 3-4 miles to get warm, but at 6 miles, I was sweating a bit, though my feet started geting cold at about 5 miles. Getting used to breathing thru my nose so I don't get a wet spot on my balaclava. Snot froze to my mittens! Neoprene gloves have thin rubber palm and otherwise are a mild weather item, but they're snug enuf to tie my shoes with them on, and have made a good base layer under the big Thinsulate mittens.

    Conditions: 11F, wind chill -4F, winds 15-30mph, fairly clear skys, roads were clear enough not to take the ice bike.

    Head: balaclava, fleece cap, goggle/glasses

    Torso: ls poly/wool base, merino wool sweater, J&G wind jacket, non-mesh reflective vest

    Legs: poly/wool long johns, Novara headwind pants

    Hands: snow boarding gloves

    Feet: smartwool socks, diadora shoes, LG booties

    Notes: That darned balaclava I got from target is a warm sucker, probably don't need the fleece cap over it. Had some minor fogging problems with the goggle-glasses when stopped or out of the wind, probably due to my sweaty head. If I would have been on the ice bike with the handlebar mirror, I would have just worn my goggles with the little fans in them.

    I'm using a ski mask to cover my sinuses and so can't use my regular glasses. so I'm going without eye protection. so far the road debris; sand and salt aren't so bad but I suspect it will get worse. I looked at ski goggles but they are expensive. my kids goggle fit but they are tinted. I think I'll look for motorcycle or aviator goggles - those old fashioned kind like big swim goggles
