    Inexpensive colder weather gear.

    I'm sure the old adage get what you pay for comes into play here but is there any colder weather (30-40*) that can be had relatively cheap? I've been looking at some stuff from Pearl Izumi on sale. I just got started riding again after way too long and enjoy the **** out of it. With winter approaching I don't want to quit riding or wait for "nice" days to ride. I found a few good deal son Jenson's website as well as a few things on Amazon.

    Thanks for your help!

    Check the sale rack at a Under Armor Outlet... I've got some good deals there.

    Not sure where you are. Marshalls and TJ maxx carry a brand called Layer 8. Great base layer stuff for short money. Usually under $15.00 for bottoms and long sleeve tops for around the same

    If you have rain gear, it can double as a wind proof layer.
    For warm without bulk, nothing beats a heated vest. Making your own makes it affordable and you can tailor the electrical draw to run withing the limits of the Rebel's system.

    Go natural if you don't mind the itch get some cheap wool sweaters from a second hand shop. Look for a nice tight knit and in a size that's nice and tight. Throw on a cheap long sleeve base layer plus wool over plus bike jersey (for pockets) and you're out the door.

    What does everyone recommend for a nice pair of pants/tights?
    I'm looking for something with chamois. I don't mind spending $50-75 on a quality pair.

    Wear your summer shorts underneath a pair of these.....it is surprising how easy it is to freeze your dick.
