Just wanted to see what everyone who has to bear the cold is ridding in this winter... for comparison purposes.
One year I wore multiple pairs of pants and shirts under my ridding gear, looked like the damn kid from A Christmas Story
but for the most part I stayed warm... just sucked when I got to where I was going to and took 20 minutes to take it all off and another to put it back on
I then Upgraded to typical Under Armour... which if it wasn't too cold, it worked out great for me (my body generally runs pretty hot as it is) but once the weather started hitting 30*F I started to feel the chill
Now, I'm ridding with this Freeze Out gear, covers head to toe and I absolutely love it. Keeps me super toasty! Even when ridding at night, I'm nice and warm. Only issue has been having to put it on and take it off... wearing that shit under your clothes can be a pain in the ass... especially when most of my ridding is to work everyday...
After doing some Christmas shopping however, my lovely lady hooked me up with this Outerwear from Frogg Togg. It's a suit that goes over your normal ridding gear (super easy to put on and take off) its design to prevent rain water from soaking you, but it blocks the wind so nicely. I wore it for the first time this morning. It was about 40+/-*F this morning and I was cruising around 90mph on the highway and just wearing my work clothes (I wear a suit to work) and having this on over it... I was warm.
I now look forward to this winter and getting to ride without being so restrained and stiff that I can't move around! With the Freeze Out and this Frogg Togg Outerwear, I'm all set and ready to go! I even found some sweet gloves that allow me to still feel the throttle... I hate when I can't 'feel' the controls.
I’ve looked into those heated suits… but I don’t really get cold enough to really justify spending the $$$ on them.
So... what’s everyone else wearing this winter to stay warm?
