Ski jacket over summer mesh?

I have been thinking of ways to ride in the cold without breaking the bank with a second set of gear...I'm probably going to get a ski bib for pants. But I thought about getting a cheap, loose fitting ski jacket to wear *over* my mesh jacket with armor to keep out the cold/wind. Any one ever try this? Any reason I shouldn't?

It will work.
Might be a little flappy in the wind but it will keep you warm and I'm assuming the mesh is armored so that will keep you safe.
I've worn my ski jacket on the bike and it works fine.

Yes. Mesh jacket is armored which is why I'd wear it underneath. Cool.

works good, and you can find ski pants on sale at academy during January for like $15. I ride in my $15 ski pants wen ever it's cold, they work great, and can go over the top of other jeans/shorts, and over the top of your riding boots as well..
