cold weather gear testing

Filed under: Daily Crazies,gadgets — Sol @ 11:58 am

I just came back from a two hour long ride. Cold weather gear is holding up as good as expected. Well, almost as good as expected. I am not sure how cold it was, but there was frost on cars and grass when I left, and my truck is still covered in frost right now. Gloves took some getting used to because of their insulated clumsiness, and even with those gloves my fingertips were still terribly cold after an hour. I actually stopped in a friends driveway to warm up my hands. Once I have heated grips taken care of, I am certain that my fingertips will remain warm and flexible.

Pants were most excellent for comfort and warmth. Liner helps a great deal. More pockets would not hurt.

Mask/scarf thing – a good thing to have. It did help reducing fogging up of my visor, but I still crack the visor open at low speeds.

Boots did not show up yet, but I will try them out as soon a they arrive.
