Bike Winter Clothing
Dressing for biking in Chicago in winter.
Weatherization of outer jacket/pants is key due to wind/rain locally and due to velocity.
Light but impervious matters more than insulation. Mix presence and types of thermal/insulation/weather layers as needed for conditions.
A bottom line I've found is that one needs two (or more) of main items, because one must constantly be washing the other cycle. Over a few hours activity a cyclist wiill drench a Balaclava.
