This is my first year with a serious (16 mile each way) winter commute and I'm trying to put together a kit that will keep me warm through an Indiana winter. The problem I'm having is that I can't seem to find stuff that is being recommended in the various winter gear guides that are floating around. I'm trying to spend as little as possible (college student) while still getting stuff that will keep me from freezing to death.
To make matters worse, I'm a big guy (6'3" tall, 260 pounds). Stuff never seems to fit me right, which is why I've always despised shopping.
Any advice or suggestions?
