Warm & Dry - From The - Wind & Wet. Jersey's - Jackets; Socks

OK, I'm a real freezer during the winter months; and cycling gets a bit; Hit-n-Miss.

The beginning of this Winter; I decided to get some quality protective clothing.

bought myself a Castelli Perfetto Long Sleeve Jersey (really pleased with it) also bought a pair of Specialised RBX thermal tights, (love em, really comfy and warm) and then bought some Merino wool socks with a high percentage of Merino Wool in them.  Arctic Grip-Grab over shoes; and good quality gloves.

Well, so far my expenditure is paying dividends - the gear is doing the job.

I really love my Prefetto Jersey.

So what would you guy's be wearing this winter?  (keep it cleen K-Nobby)  maybe you have some recommendations for staying warm & dry on those really cold days? 

  1. Overshoes, Sidi's, merino socks, shorts, tights, base layer, top, jacket, long fingered gloves, little wooly hat, helmet.

    Thickness of the  above and quantity varies with the weather, looks like it'll be most of it tomorrow.

  2. DHB wind and waterproof jacket, Tenn gillet, Decathlon s/s jersey and botty heaven shorts (can't bear tights - words I never thought I'd hear me say!) Primani socks and shoes and my GORGEOUS pink Laser Armor helmet. In the words of the intoxicating Jon Slidewell - ' style over substance' every time!xxxxx

     been looking at a decent winter jacket and the Castelli perfetto looks good how warm is it in frezzing condtions Mostyn

  4. I bought the Castelli Perfetto and it does the job perfectly; expensive, but I'm very pleased with it.

    Also bought this year 2017 a Perfetto Gilet .  Castelli are expensive, but very nice to wear.

  5. Recently acquired a Bontrager winter jacket which adds protection against the cold, not waterproof but water repellent. In the event of a downpour I just put on my light Northwave waterproof jacket over the top and seems to work fine!
