    Westmass, you need to move someplace warmer. 35F yesterday. Put booties over my shoes. Wore Craft pants with windbloc front over my biking shorts. Put thin patagonia polypro underwear top under my normal short sleeve cycling jersey. Added a windbloc vest and put a shell over all that. Added a thin balaclava and wore gloves under my pogies. I could have left the pogies off but they'll just stay on my bike at this point. I was dressed perfectly. I unzipped my shell almost entirely after I warmed up. The windbloc vest is key for me. It lets me open up my outer jacket and get good air circulation without getting wind directly on my chest. Studded tires keep my ride slow as the old dog I am, but it was a good two hour workout.
    Alaskans for global warming.

    Was low thirties with a light breeze coming off Narragansett Bay - wore Sporthill XC pants (commute is short enough such that chamois not required), Smartwool socks, Specialized SPD shoes with PI toe covers, t-shirt with Sporthill Ultimate Visibility II top, covered with Showers Pass Double Century shell. Reflective Buff and helmet with OR PL100 gloves under PI Gel half-finger bike gloves.

    Core and toes were pretty good - feel like I might've needed a little more glove...

    Performance elite shorts, LG short-sleeved jersey.....it was 70F here in central NC. It isn't going to last and I can see the base layers and tights in my near future!

    28F in Boston this evening. I wore:

    UA Coldgear compression base layer top
    Pearl Izumi Thermal jersey
    performance elite shorts
    LG Classique tights
    performance hat
    performance lobster gloves
    LG neoprene booties
    UA socks - the same kind that I wear for all rides

    i started a bit chilly but was generally comfortable at 20mph pace. If there was any shortcoming, it was the tights. A little bit more wind protection would have been welcome. But, then they would be too warm in milder conditions. Tomorrow morning it will be 22F with a 'feels like' of 13F. I'll be wearing the same clothes. Fingers crossed!

    25F on the east coast:

    Two pairs cotton socks (wool socks just ordered), wool liners, winter shoes
    long underwear pants, long riding pants, waterproof rain pants
    undershirt, long underwear shirt, riding jacket, waterproof rain jacket
    Baraclava, neoprene mask, and behind the ear earmuffs
    40 degree gloves and bar mitts.

    My problem is that my ride is hilly enough I'm either sweating going up the hill at 5 mph or being blasted at 30 mph. Wasn't going too badly (my glasses were fogging badly), but then my front derailleur cable snapped and my low is pretty low (so I could pedal going up the hills but coasted going down). Without the usual physical output, I was a bit cold when I arrived at work today.

    Last night it was in the low 30's. I had to cross the East River into Brooklyn. I wore a wool hat over my helmet, a regular dress shirt, a thin wool sweater, my new Showers Pass rain jacket, jeans, wool socks, and hiking style shoes with SPD cleats. I couldn't find my winter gloves so I wore my summer gloves.

    I was slightly underdressed, especially with my gloves, but I'm very happy to say it was pretty good overall. This jacket is a huge winner and worth every penny.

    Another chilly day along the Narragansett - mid-30s and windy (12-15mph). Poly-pro mock neck, with 100 wt fleece, covered with Showers Pass jacket. Skivs and PI Thermal Elite tights; Smartwool socks under Spesh shoes and PI Thermal Elite toe covers. Reflective Buff under the helmet and Swix XC gloves for the paws. Pretty comfy all the way around.

    Weather conditions were partly cloudy, 34F, windy from the NW.

    Smartwool liner socks
    Darn Tough wool over the calf socks
    Sidi summer shoes 1/2 size larger to accommodate the socks
    LG toe covers
    LG booties
    Ibex wool bib knickers
    Ibex A-shirt wool base layer
    Smartwool long sleeve full zip jersey
    Ibex beanie under helmet
    Sugoi helmet cover
    EMS Gore-tex gauntlet style gloves with primaloft insulation
    Showers Pass soft shell jacket
    Bolle sunglasses with prescription insert

    I was quite comfortable even riding into the wind. The EMS gloves are the warmest I've ever had but not as good as mittens. I also have a pair of Hestra 3 finger ski mitts which I'm saving for colder temps. The SP jacket is nice because the fit is quite snug so very little wind drag and vents that can be opened. I like the wool stuff, it's comfortable and I think it works in a wider range of temps than the synthetics. Also doesn't smell . My feet and hands are the big problems. Bar Mitts work well. The downside is if it's windy they tend to act as a sail.

    Today I wore:

    Head:

    Helmet, Ear band

    Torso

    Bontrager Cycling Jersey, Base layer, Lightweight unlined vest

    Legs

    Bontrager Bibs, LG Knee Warmers

    Feet.

    Standard socks and cycling shoes

    Hands

    Specialized BG Gel Gloves


    Conditions

    51 F at start of charity ride (0800) with 17mph winds out of the north. Warmed up to about 60 F by end of ride 3 hours later

    Notes:
    It's south Florida so this was a VERY cold day for cycling, had it not been that it was the annual Adopt A Bike charity ride, I would stayed in a little longer and put on long pants to go to breakfast.

    Clothing for around -12C just hasn't been coming together for me yet this season. I'm wearing what I'd normally wear in past years, but its just not keeping me warm. Might just be the wind, I'll try adding a shell instead of a mid-layer. At least my hands and feet have been good so far.

    I got an Under Armour ColdGear shirt, but it doesn't play well with my outer layers. The shirt is two layers, the inner layer wicks well, but the outer layer just holds onto sweat and gets drenched.

    About to head out the door, temp is 6f with some wind. Base layer of merino wool long underwear, wool boot socks. Soft shell vest with insulated wind she'll over, rain pants (still snow on ground), with my shimano gore-tex boots. Helmet liner with soft shell balaclava over, and helmet cover to block some wind, wool liner gloves under insulated soft shell gloves. Basically what I've worn every winter once the temps hit single digits, luckily I have a decent hill first thing on my commute so I build a lot of warmth right off the bat.

    I think what was missing from my cold weather clothing selection was just snow. The extra exertion from snow on the ground generates more heat, plus going slower reduces overall wind speed. Just when I thought I had all the factors for getting dressed figured out, in addition to temperature, wind speed, wind direction, now there is rolling resistance to consider.

    20 degrees, light wind

    Head - Balaclava, helmet, impact resistant safetey glasses (good for blocking the wind, low light)
    torso - under armor, patagonia fleece, moosejaw softshell jacket
    hands - army surplus trigger finger mittens
    legs - Windproof boxers, gym shorts, soccer pants (with tapered legs)
    feet - Bike shoes, wool socks, neoprene shoe covers

    Notes - First day with the trigger finger mittens and I'm impressed! Still able to shift and brake but hands/fingers stayed warm. Ride to work is only 4 miles so i'm only outside for 15 mins or so.

    Today I wore my new pearl izumi balaclava, long finger mechanic gloves, Adidas cool weather sleeveless under shirt, Canari longsleeve flash jersey, performance bike Nevado baggy shorts, Louis Garneau leg warmers, and socks. As it was in the mid 30's for my first road ride on my new CX bike. Next week I should have my new gore wear long finger gloves.
