Well, it is. What I meant is, that is what I usually wear for winter riding. My bad.

Right now we've got 15C and some hard winds and rain. Just a windstopper jacket with a a longsleeve Icebreaker 200 merinowool shirt is enough.

During winter snow is pretty rare, but freezing temperatures are common. Combined with strong winds because I live close to the sea windchill becomes something to keep in mind.
When it's just below freezing, but you have windforce 7 or 8 even those ski-gloves are not enough on a bike. -5C with 50km/h winds mean a temperature of -25C or -13F.
