Further, that pic with the Castelli warmers is showing an almost scandalous amount of ankle.
We have temperature and humidity conditions here where you'll literally have frost form on leading edges (toes, shins, hands, forearms) even though it's above freezing. On days like that I don't care to have bare skin showing but it's not so cold that my "junk has frozen solid."
