    Feet: A cold specific winter shoe: 45North does great ones, the new Garneau shoes are really good too.

    Legs: XC ski pants, over a shammy.

    Body: Base layer and XC ski jacket

    Head: Toque with a Buff as backup.

    Hands: medium weight gloves with poggies.

    At 10 degrees, warm shoes and clothes (so personal) and a balaclava.

    But that is the kind of temp where I put my Bar Mitts on the hardtail. Kind of weird at first, but SO warm. Just amazing compared to bulky winter gloves.
    Whining is not a strategy.

    really two vastly different thoughts here depending on the time i'm planning to be outside and the type of activity. Shorter/Faster ride where I don't care if I sweat or if it evaporates vs. slower/longer days where I either don't want to break a sweat or if I do I want it gone asap. Factor in if it's a sunny/windy day or not and what I might wear will be all over the board. I know that's incredibly helpful right?

    Common things across the spectrum -
    • like Kosmo, bar mitts for either Road or Mtb make a ton of difference
    • I get cold feet too so flat pedals and boots are pretty common on longer slower days (flexible uppers are key here and I have an older pair of Keens with a built in gaiter that are great) but have some Northwave Arctic somethings (?) and 45N Wolvhammer (not particularly great for long days - too stiff imo) for regular and fat riding.
    • Merino wool baselayers of varying weights


    I have a nice windblocker like vest that I'll often wear all over the temp range too (something from Castelli's - perfetto something or other, very nice) after that you're looking at various windproof (or not), waterproof (or not) pieces of gear. Really vague, sorry

    10 degree pre-dawn bike commuting:

    -Head: Ski helmet and goggles, thin neck gaiter
    -Feet: Platform pedals, Goretex hiking boots with over calf wool socks
    -Hands: Giro Lobster gloves (gloves suck but I already have tons of them).
    -Legs: Bibs and Knee warmers underneath loose fitting Patagonia Soft shell Pants
    -Body: Long sleeve wool jersey, Gore Cycling jacket, and thin wind vest over that

    At that temp it looks more like I'm going skiing than biking. I use a CX bike with 33mm CX tires.
