Well, I rode to work yestday in 15F temps.. I thought about my motorcycle stuff and my electric vest, and instead grabbed my Polaris snowmobile jacket and bibs, and the warmest gloves I own, and my Turtle Fur Balacava..

I got to work, 10 miles later, completely warm..

I figure if it's what keeps me warm when riding my snowmobile at -10F, it should keep me warm on the bike..

It was 25F when I rode home, and I ended up riding an extra 25 miles because it was fun and I was comfortable.

My Polaris Fusion jacket was $160 and the Polaris insulated bibs were $60. The balacava was $25, and the gloves were another twenty spot..
