Sportful Winter Gear: Winter Wear Review

Here in the Midwest, having the right gear for winter cycling is the difference between truly enjoying rides and simply suffering through them. And while some cyclists simply hide indoors when the temps take a dive, I enjoy the fresh face snow and ice add to my familiar routes. As such, I'm always on the lookout for gear that makes my winter cycling adventures more enjoyable.

GORE Winter Clothing: Winter Wear Review Take 2

I would suggest this as a very good but not terribly exceptional outer shell.... I would have expected a much nicer pad in the bibs, and a structure that didn't put a seam in an area where the body articulates during pedaling.
