These work great in your gloves. Or, buy a pair of snowboarding gloves at Costco ($16.00) that has a pocket built in for the heat packs.

yeah. I travel 30-40 miles typically with a -15 windchill so I need every layer.

The thermal layers are pretty thin so it's not as insane as the list implies. My Neofleece Lower face thermal layer is the most critical element. Even with a full face my chin would succumb to frostbite without that.

Is that the Masque or the Masque/Neck fleece combo?

I made a lot of friends one New Year's in Times Square with these bad boys; bought a bunch at the sporting goods store for like two for 99 cents and gave them to people we met in the crowd. Everyone who didn't plan like us were so grateful and bought us hot pizza which was delivered to the crowd. Made the wait for midnight so much nicer. Before 9/11, of course!

Buy them - they totally work!!! And if they're two for 75 cents go for it!

Jett battery-heated vest. Triumph Sympatex All-Weather gloves, w/ Aerostich Triple Digit Rain over-gloves. Fleece balaclava. Tall, thick woolen socks w/ an extra pair of sock liners. Fully-lined Hein Gericke Maxwell jacket and pants (the best!) Long underwear, two layers if necessary. And that's usually fine to keep me touring comfortably all day long.

Keeping fingertips warm was my only problem last winter. If the over-gloves don't work, I'm going to go w/ battery-heated gloves, likely Zanier.

I love to ride. But, if I've got to wear all that, I'm driving or taking the train.

Stan,
The reason you wear that is so that you can enjoy riding in colder weather. You can also use the car during hot days because you have air conditioning but you choose to ride your scooter. If you like riding 2 wheels, ride 2 wheels just ride prepared for the weather.

Herman,
There is no enjoyment riding in winter weather. I never get into my car when I can use my scooter instead. If it was my only means of transportation I'd agree with all the cold weather gear. But, I have a car, and the subway (as much as I hate using it). When the temperature dips below freezing I'll ride in comfort.
I do try to ride as far into the cold weather months as possible. I'll add my windshield and pull on my ski overalls and gloves and ride, ride, ride :D

I never said freezing weather.. when ice forms it's a good clue to get off the bike. However, high 30's can be fun if properly dressed. Heated clothing or well insulated attire makes it all happen ;)
