I used to commute 36 mi/day all year in N. Ohio. I'm also a cheapskate, so I don't go nuts buying things from Assos, etc. I wear Performance Triflex windproof/waterproof tights for really cold days with no long johns or other base layer. Other tights are all right above 35F. On top I wear a top from Sahalie made from Polartec. They call it butterfleece." No pockets, but they are very warm & zip up into a nice turtle neck. I wear no base layer with that unless the temp goes into the single digits. Over the jersey, I wear a Performance unlined, windproof jacket with Illuminite. I bought a pair of gloves from Sierra Trading Post. http://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/...s-Waterproof-Insulated-For-Men-and-Women.html They're the warmest I've ever had...Primaloft insulation, with 2 pair of removable liners. If goes into the teens, I have a pair of Gortex mittens that I wear. I wear smart wool knee length knee socks, and below 30* I wear Performance neoprene booties. http://www.performancebike.com/bikes//Product_10052_10551_1018749_-1___ A balaclava is also a must for me, as are glasses with at least 2 sets of interchangeable lenses.
