First year of trying to winter cycle at much as possibe.
I have your standard set of waffle pattern old timey long johns that everyone has used through out the history of time but i have heard there are better things in this department.
IM really debating some smartwool midweight long johns from REI but the price is like$80. Granted they are Merino wool and probably some of the best you can get but just curious what everyone else runs? I have heard the SW is worth every penny.
I live in MN and it can get down to -40 on any given day in the winter.
Probably not worth replying if you dont live somewhere where it doesnt get down in the single digits.....to below zero.
On that note i did score some nice REI switch back gloves today which have a nice long gauntlet. Got them on clearance for 44 bucks. IM figuring i can throw some $1 stretchy gloves as liners in them when it gets really cold. I justified this purchase as i needed some decent winter gloves and this seemed as good or better than the Peal Itzumis in the bike dept for the same price.
