Ladies Cold Weather Gear

Looking for some suggestions for some cold weather gear. She needs a jacket and pants. Her gloves are good.

Leather jacket, leather pants, cold weather Under Armour, thermal hiking socks. Layers! Maybe a fleecy neck gaiter. These are things I use if/when I need to ride when it is cold.

Does that help?

I don't park the bike for winter so she needs stuff to stay warm. She tried on an icon jacket yesterday but the shoulders made her look funny. Even without the pads in it looked bad.

Personally, I've used any jacket that's non-perfed/mesh and then worn a lighter jacket under it (something with a tall neck if the moto-jacket doesn't have one). Breaking the wind is more important than insulation (at least while moving).

If she wears pants that'll allow knee/shin gaurds, get them. They completely cut the wind, and are safer than jeans.

For neck/face, go to academy and look at the fleece or neoprene neck/jaw covers. River road makes a similar product, available at moto-stores, but academy has more of a selection of similar things usually. I prefer the fleece "ring" by river road that Wild West Honda sold, but i see lots of people with the neoprene mouth/nose covers. The fleece can be tucked into neck of jacket, and then up into the helmet.

If her head is cold, might consider a looser set of helmet pads, and keeping a hoodie hood up.

I wear my regular Dainese Leather Jacket, gloves n boots. adding a scarf on the neck and a chin guard thingie for my helmet. If it get's too cold, i just wear some thing long sleeves or a windproof liner to block wind. jacket stays pretty cozy even in the 30's.

remind me to post a pic of my gear rack.

Feildsheer, Olympia, Held, etc. are all good brands.
I would also recommend Warm and Safe heated gear, especially if she is a tiny thing
