Ok, tell me what you have and what works and doesn't work. I'm not accustomed to the cold weather having moved from Phoenix within the last year. What are your recommendations?

I have the stuff. It works well. It's not SUPER warm... Meaning, it makes a good first layer, but doesn't exactly mean it's the ONLY thing you need to wear under your gear and stay warm in 32 degree weather...John said:

Latex gloves under your riding gloves make a big difference. Also, Icon's barrier gloves work pretty well at keeping the hands warm. It was 27 degrees in Bridgeport when we rode through there a couple of weeks ago. One of our guys was wearing Barrier gloves, the rest of us were wearing latex gloves under our gloves. It worked out pretty well. I also hear that heated grips or gloves work well.double2000r6 said:No I usually just layer up. I don't ride in real cold weather because I find that the hands usually are a cold receptacle and don't warm up very quick - so less than 30 degrees forget it. Not that I haven't done it but it is painful.
