Every day! I leave around 6am for my 20mi. commute. Winter gear is (first and foremost) FULL FACED HELMET always, Textile jacket with liner, my ti-max gloves are about as torn up as my seat which is nearly useless now, if it's low thirties I wear jump pants under my dickies, steel toed boots. Maybe a sweater too.

Get one with decent length and you can pull it up over your chin and/or mouth: IMO it worked well.

Imagine being one of those guys that rides a cruiser with a skull cap and glasses or goggles.

I rode in. Stayed warm except for the fact I had to defrost my fingers this morning. Guess my inexpensive gloves from Academy aren't enough. Any recommendations on gloves? Something less than 100.00?
