Yes they do...

I bought one.. and gave it to a friend who rides to and from work (I don't).

The few times I did use it, it was great, and I plan on getting another one.. especially for the price.

It also cuts WAY down on wind noise.

You can also go to Wal-mart and go to the hats section and get a 2 piece balaclava.

One piece covers your neck, and the other piece covers your nose and mouth. I've used one in sub freezing temperatures up north and been 100% fine.

i have the wind stopper balaclava that I bought from there for $30 that works amazingly. But even with that I still have wind coming into the helmet from underneath.

The only other thing I need to be good to go with texas winter is....

Cat20Crap


That is the bomb, if they sell that as well it would be awesome... either way sun and ski sports sell it, but if I can save a trip....

Thanks for the heads' up!

I tie a cozy scarf around my neck and tuck it into my helmet. It's warm and wonderful.

if you get caught with little hand protection and your hands start getting stiff,i know it kinda hurts,but make sure you start moving your fingers a lot and they will warm back up.

I just got a leather jacket so i'll see how that works. Before,i used my textile jacket with a hoodie and long sleeve shirt underneath but it gets old putting and taking all those layers on and off.

For my legs i wear under armor, A* knee/shin guards jeans and my A* waterproof boots,they are really warm.

For the hands i use to wear my mesh gloves and wind/water proof gloves on top but it gets too bulky .

For the neck,depending on how cold it is i'll either wear my balaclava ( works great ) or a bandana covering up to right below my nose and going down the neck tucked in the jacket,works pretty well also.

I have a tombstone type windshield on my cruiser. It really keeps the wind off as long as the wind is coming in from the front. I can say that my chest is fine and feel little to no wind. Wind does affect the lower torse sides.

My main complaint is that my hands get really cold. The windshield tries unsuccessfully to cover the handgrip area. I'm currently looking for some good gloves. Might have to look into ski gloves that some of you mentioned.

I use a full tour master intake 2 jacket + pants. I zip in all the liners and am GTG. gauntlet gloves, balaclava and SDI boots. I can stay warm till around 32 deg then after a bit I start to feel the cold....

I am trying to find leather pants to go with my leather jacket that will keep me as warm....
