And do you actually have winter in Atlanta?
It's been between 32-37 the past few days. That in itself probably isn't so bad, the wind is kicking in too. I usually layer pretty well...I got pretty cold here these past couple of days.
I went ahead and ordered a Hammer thermal jacket. It's not too cheap, but I have always been very pleased with the price quality of their gear. I don't want anything too heavy, and I think this jacket will make it warmer without having to layer up top so much.
I have a wind jacket that I got on a century here a couple of years ago...It holds in too much heat though. It causes me to sweat and contains the heat like a sauna. It doesn't take too long at a stop light to begin to get cold.
Compared to what you guys have up there in upstate NY, no our winters are pretty mild...
