I’m looking at finally sorting out a proper set of winter kit so just wanted to harvest the hive my Nd for ideas
I’m mainly looking at colder days on the 0-5c range and mostly gentle to tempo longer rides as opposed to flat out heat generating workouts
Basically my first question is, does the below list look like the right sort of stuff and secondly hit me with some makes/models to give me some inspiration!
Base Layer (I have a fleecy under armour that already works well)
Windproof/water repellent winter jacket (bright colored)
Some kind of packable waterproof
Thermal cap (already have one of these)
Thermal winter bib tights
Overshoes (got a pair but they’ll need replacing soon)
I’m generally allergic to rain if it’s forecast to be anything more than a brief shower, so I don’t think I need too much waterproofing.
Budget wise i generally go mid range but if there’s some mind blowing awesome jacket for example then I may be tempted to treat myself. I also generally prefer a close fit, but I’m 95kg so sometimes I get no choice in that anyway
Anyway, let me hear your suggestions
