Cold Weather Gear - October 12, 2006, 06:30 PM

Looking for some input as to who makes some good cold weather gear. I am interested in clothing that will fit under my leathers, but will not restrict movement. Has to block out the wind and help me to stay warm.

I've been very pleased with UnderArmour ColdGear

Works great when snowboarding as well as riding. Will not restrict movement and NOT bulk you up unde ryour jacket but gives great insulation. Use it as a layer or alone. Reg UnderArmour or the T-shirts work great under leather during warm weather as well. I've even worn it under a wetsuit. I've ridden bikes (pedal) in sub freezing temps with their ColdGear legging....works well.

leathers are no good once it gets cold. they are hard to bend and offer very little insulation. Textile and dress in layers. It's the only way.

Guess I should have searched for a thread like this before I posted mine.

Anyway, here is what I'm going with this year. I used them in the military countless times. You wanna talk about warm!!!



I wore them in -7 degree weather .... fuckin AWESOME!!!! You get the set for a little over $50 at the Ranger Surplus Store. I know there is one located in Tysons Corner!! Now I just need to find some glove inserts that won't stretch my gloves out or wear out in 1 season.


God Speed Jeff! You'll never be forgotten.

I tried going with glove inserts last year. They ended up being so tight and stiff in my hands that they would cut off circulation. My hands actually ended up feeling colder with them then they would have gotten without.

Just ordered some insulated gloves.

I ran into the same issue last year. Insulated gloves seems to be the way to go. Just looking for some that offer a bit more protection in the event of a wreck. Padding shreds so I'd like some kind of reenforcment behind it.

What did you order?

I ended up going with these since they appear to do the job that I need them to without being too thick. I'm pretty sure I'll need a better jacket before I do any riding in temps that are too cold for these gloves.

Other options are considered were:
http://www.newenough.com/held_ice_br...glove_page.htm (too expensive)
http://www.newenough.com/tour_master...loves_page.htm

I'm too lazy to look anywhere other than Newenough.

I'd like to get heated gear, but most of the stuff I have seen is pretty expensive and probably not necessary for the average temps we get around here (~30 degrees or so).

Of those three I would only go with the Held. Those others wouldn't be much more effective against the cold than my Teknic Violators. The Helds are similar to the Olympia ones I have and I still need to use heated grips to keep my hands warm. My left heated grip isn't working right now and I had a frigid hand when I got to work this morning.
