    Today I wore:
    Conditions: 37 degrees, very light breeze

    Head:
    Under Armour cold gear head cover, adidas shirt hood, Eddie Bauer heavy sweatshirt hood, sunglasses (I was bad and didn't wear my helmet)
    Torso:
    Under Armour cold gear shirt, t-shirt, adidas exercise hoodie, Eddie Bauer heavy sweatshirt
    Legs:
    Under Armour cold gear tights, Adidas exercise capris, jean shorts
    Feet:
    Cotton socks, Simple Brand tennis shoes
    Hands:
    Wool gloves and biking gloves

    I was VERY comfy except for my feet. They were chilly. I ordered some Under Armour cold gear socks today to take care of the problem. I rode 11 miles. It took a little over an hour so I wasn't busting my butt or anything!

    I wore:
    Black wife beater.
    Levi 501's.
    The Shadow Conspiracy hat.

    Hey, I missed the bus and didnt want to be late so I just hopped onto my bike without thinking .

    37 degrees F, dewpoint 30, 5mph headwind

    fleece earband

    REI MTS zip neck base layer
    nylon windbreaker w/ vents
    100 weight fleece gloves

    100 weight fleece pants (a little warm for today)

    SmartWool hiking socks
    Lake clipless shoes
    Gator neoprene booties (switching to Lake winter shoes on Monday)

    notes:
    fingers were a little chilly, could have added SmartWool liner gloves or just used windproof gloves. Generated a lot more heat today than usual, suspect its due to sitting in a smokey bar last night, less o2 in my blood. Felt a chill on my scalp, time for a beanie or helmet cover.

    Conditions: 54 degrees at the start before sunrise, 60 degrees an hour later when my ride ended. Light North/Northeast wind, clear as a bell and dry as a bone.

    Head: Headsweats midcap, helmet.
    Torso: long sleeve compression type shirt from wally mart, lime green alert shirt, illuminite vest.
    Legs: compression shorts + loose shorts on top, knee warmers.
    Feet: Defeet aereator wool socks, Vans sneakers.
    Hands: Polypro glove liners.

    Notes: I got warm fast on this ride and had I been planning on riding longer I would have brought along short-fingered gloves and my usual headsweats skullcap to change into when it got too warm. Armwarmers probably would have been a better idea than the long sleeves as well.

    36 F, dewpoint 25, 10-20 mph headwind, 11 miles

    light balaclava

    REI MTS zip neck base layer
    REI Mistral II jacket + reflective safety vest (Home Depot)
    Manzella windproof lobster mits

    100 weight fleece tights

    SmartWool hiking socks
    Lake MXZ301 boots

    notes:
    quite possibly the perfect dress for the morning. Felt a little stinging cold on the front of my skull from the helmet vents, but didn't notice it after 3+ miles. A helmet cover will be a daily item soon. Really impressed with the Lake boots and Mistral II jacket. Both breathe better than the bootie/nylon jacket combo, and were more consistently comfortable.

    31 F, dewpoint 26, 9 mph headwind, 11 miles

    light balaclava

    REI MTS zip neck mid layer
    REI Mistral II jacket + reflective safety vest (Home Depot)
    SmartWool liner gloves + Manzella windproof lobster mits

    100 weight fleece tights

    SmartWool hiking socks
    Lake MXZ301 boots

    notes:
    wore an older Bell Solar helmet today that has fewer, smaller vents. Skull didn't get the stinging cold as bad, but had milder wind conditions. Eyes are getting dry from cold wind, so ski or motorcycle goggles are on the short list.

    Mid 30s, light mist, NW wind around 10mph, 13 miles.

    Feet: I left the sandals at home and tried out my new Answer boots today. With just a single pair of my midweight smartwool socks, my feet were plenty dry and warm. Had a bit more room to wiggle my toes compared to sandals with socks and sealskinz.

    Legs: J&G Patrol Pants
    Torso: polyrpo base, merino wool sweater, J&G wind jacket - pit zips open about 3/4
    hands: Gore windstopper gloves
    head: wool brimmed watch cap

    This combo won't change much until we start getting below the mid 20s

    Today I wore: (2 degrees celcius, clear skies)

    Head: MEC Powerdry skull cap under Gyro XC helmet
    Torso: Somo Athletics 1/3 zip Coolmax longsleeved Shirt under MEC lite weight polyester shell
    Legs: MEC Chamios under nylon tights and nylon shorts
    Feet: Chlorofibre socks (Blue Johns) under MTB shoes and neoprene toe booties (the ones that only cover your toes)
    Gloves: Polypropylene glove liners under full finger MTB gloves.

    Commute: 16km/10miles each way

    Toasty warm the entire trip.

    Its been back in the 40's here the past few days (not really winter), but I have been wearing my same gear to test the upper comfort range. Although I've been ok in the past with a base + light nylon jacket, I'm happy to say that the softshell fabric jacket hits a sweeter spot than either a windbreaker or rain jacket. I rode in 45F light rain yesterday and stayed dry from both sweat and rain. So far, my recently reported gear is equally comfortable from 26F to 46F, with minor hand and head wear adjustments

    Gotta love that.

    Conditions: 28F, Clear

    Head: Helmet, wool cap, gaitor
    Hands: Leather lambskin gloves
    Torso: Thin base wool tank, duofold long sleeve, Eddie Bauer wool zip, Marmot ATV softshell
    Legs: PI Thermal fleece w/pad
    Feet: Gaerne winter boot and wool socks

    Notes Frost on gaitor at the end of the ride. Warm on whole body even a speeds of 19mph over several miles. Hands took too long to warm up. Will add home-made vinyl liner to block helmet vents and heavier gloves.

    Today I wore:

    Head:

    Helmet, Ear band, Lightweight Balaclava

    Torso

    Performance Winter Cycling Jersey, Performance Gore Tex Cycling jacket later switched to Pearl Izumi Zephyr.

    Legs

    Nashbar Epic Cycling shorts, Foxwear Powershield tights.

    Feet.

    Lightweight cycling socks with heavy wool socks over the top.

    Hands

    New Glacier Glove Convertible glove-mittens. Lightweight glove liners underneath.


    Conditions

    30 F, North wind 15-20 mph. Notes:
    Removed gore tex jacket about 5 miles in, too hot. Switched to Pearl Izumi. New Glacier Glove flip mitts are HOT. These gloves are going to be very nice for COLD temps.

    28 F, no wind, 10 miles

    Helmet, Performance Bike Windproof Balaclava, sunglasses

    Pearl Izumi liners and Zephyr Shell gloves

    New Balance running tights, padded cycling shorts and a midweight C9 (Target) baselayer pant

    Smartwool hiking socks and Merrell Reactor Multisport shoes

    C9 DuoDry midweight top, Nike thermafit thin fleece pullover and Novara wind/rain proof cycling jacket

    Whew! No wonder it takes me an extra 5 minutes in the morning lately ...

    Notes: I knew I would be hot in the torso, but I wanted to see if the C9 top wicked. Seemed to - but I think my compression fit tops wick better. Admittedly, it might have performed better without the Nike layer above it (still trying to perfect my layering). The windproof balaclava is toasty but very warm - might need to reserve this piece for really cold days, as my skull cap and earband would've probably sufficed. Everything else was great - my hands, legs and feet were warm and dry the entire time - the Pearl Izumi glove combo rocks.

    25F, wind 10-15 mph from the west-northwest (I go towards the northwest), partly cloudy. A couple odd snowflakes. I wore:

    Marmot fleece mid-layer jacket and a thin wool sweater over a capilene undershirt. I think I would have been better off without the sweater, it seemed to be holding sweat. I really need to get an actual windbreaker.

    Jeans. Next time I'm wearing capilene longies.

    Knee-high socks and boots - fine.

    I lost my usual gloves and pulled out these thick cross-country skiing gloves - they were overkill.

    Thin cotton hat, helmet, scarf.
