Nope. I wear a thin cap and a tubular scarf under it. Now if I can just solve the hands and feet problems. I'll be trying silk glove and sock liners.

I'd be wearing a balaclava to cover my face. Here in Chicago it's around zero without considering the wind chill. Only my eyes and glasses are exposed. Once my eyes stop watering (after about 2 minutes), I'm good.

Lobster mitts (I like Pearl Izumi) keep my hands warm. Since I'm only out for about 20-25 minutes at a time, I just wear regular shoes with thick socks... but I leave the shoes loosely tied to allow blood circulation.
