Picked up the latest offering in oh-so trendy commuter wear from everyones love it or hate it shopping emporium.

The Starter lineup that Wally carries now has clones of the UnderArmour ColdGear lineup which they're calling Cold Weather Compression. Picked up a nice mock turtleneck and a pair of leggings for $17 each. Also noticed some nice lightweight jackets/shells.

On a related note, I bought a pair of mesh-lined wind pants with reflective cuffs from Target today for $14.99. Also got an acrylic headband/earwarmer for $1.99.

I've bought the exact same stuff... I got a long sleeve compression shirt made by starter from Wal-Mart and like it quite a bit... I need to get a few more. Also, I found some cheap rain/wind mesh-lined pants for like $9 or something. Oddly the butt on them lets water through just as badly as a pair of jeans, but the legs do fine. Go figure
