Winter outfit, getting there at last.

New snow on the ground this morning, a bit above freezing and what I thought was no precipitation. Coming out the door I realized there was a drizzle, enough soft rain to get quite wet. However with my latest purchases I was good to go and had a nice three hour fatbikeride on mostly unplowed roads. Started with rain and ended up with snow. Wool socks ,merino T-shirt and longsleeved jersey, Pearl Izumi Bib and their Amphib winter trousers and a Specialized double layer winter jacket. Answer Sleestak Mittens (Primaloft works pretty well wet but I had to change gloves when I could wring them). Lake 303 boots were amazing with the trouserlegs rolled over them, dry and warm feet. Merino balaclava under the helmet. Looking forward to seeing how this setup will work on colder days. And by the way studless Dillingers seem to be great winter fatbiketires for anything but glaring ice. I might stud them if our winter has little snow this year.
