    Finally found the ultimate winter riding gear list

    Its taken many years...but I think I finally have a winter apparel list that works great for the central VA winters and offers maximum flexibility for the weather fluctuations.

    Tights - Pearl Izumi Select Thermal
    Baselayer - Smartwool ss
    Armwarmers - Smartwool
    Jacket - Specialized Deflect Hybrid
    Socks - Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal wool
    Toe covers - Pearl Izumi Elite Thermal toe covers
    Jersey - any standard ss jersey
    Gloves - Pearl Izumi Cylcone
    Head warmer - Specialized Therminal
    Knee warmers - Specialized Therminal

    This, combined with a standard pair of shorts, allows me to to have flexiblity from the low 30s to the 60s. I would to add a set of bibs to my list at some point...they would likely be heavier weight short-bibs.

    damn you so much, I lost my PI elite thermal wool socks and now I miss them after having forgotten I lost them! Seriously an amazing sock! I rock the PI Elite Thermal tight and love the fit & function of them.
