Commuting in this weather: Gear advice needed
Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me for riding gear for this kind of weather.
It's been getting a wee bit chilly in the mornings this week, and it's making my choice of riding gear for commuting a little difficult. With 40+ mpg, it's been worth it to suffer the chilly mornings in the low-50s, but I figure there's got to be a better (i.e. more comfortable) way.
I've been wearing a Joe Rocket Phoenix 2.0 jacket with the liner in the morning, and if it's nice enough, zipping out the liner for the ride home.
For the pants, I've been eyeing the Ballistic pants or the Alter Ego pants. (Rec. Liesure has both listed on Ebay for what seem like reasonable prices) Correct me if I'm wrong, but both have a zip-out waterproof liner, correct? Any significant differences between them?
Also, any alternates, tips, or suggestions would be very welcome!
edit: Forgot to mention.... I also want a pant that zips up the side. I don't want to have to change outfits to ride. I'm looking for something I can zip over my work pants.
