Default Cold weather pants:

Okay, just wanted to share this with those of you that venture forth on the road in colder temperatures. I ordered some military surplus pants from Midway USA, these are ECWCS trousers, Gen III with Primaloft insulation, made in U.S.A. by Sterlingwear of Boston. They are U.S.A. Army spect’d and the ones I purchased were #1 condition,”like new, unused”. I received an alert from Midway that they were on a clearance sale and my cost was $11.41. I put them on my wishlist and they notified me of this special pricing. They are gray in color, have full length side leg zippers and a zippered fly, and provision for suspenders. So, have been riding for several days here in Michigan with temps in the 20F-30F range and logging 60-150 miles at speeds from 25m.p.h. up to 80m.p.h. With just a thin base layer under them and a top layer being my old 16 year old Tourmaster Caliper textile armored riding pants I been extremely pleased with the comfort level, totally warm and comfortable. I have never in my lifetime experienced anything close to this performance from the many combinations of gear that I have accumulated. These are absolutely the best $12.00 cold weather pants I’ve ever worn. Even have made my feet warmer as the blood is warmer getting down there! Guys and gals you gotta try these!

If these are the pants, they look good, but I did not find them on clearance.

I bought some lined combat style pants from the outdoor shop and wore them under Dainese gortex armoured riding pants. Had a thermal base layer as it was barely single figures and had a 300 mile ride from Essex to my home in Lancashire last October. Stayed warm & dry despite heavy rain for the last 80 miles. Had a lot of lined & thermal base layers being a birdwatcher for many years

These were on my wishlist at Midway, they sent me a notification of the special pricing, I just double checked my invoice, $11.41, my bad. Wished I’d have ordered a couple!

“Maxeffort”, posted the Midway U.S.A. Link above. The pricing shown in the link is regular pricing. I’ve learned that by putting different items onto a “wishlist” that when better pricing comes up they send you an e-mail notification. Works for me, just had to share. These would also be great sitting in a duckblind, deer shanty, ice shanty or bucket hopping.

midwayusa.com will get you there.

When I bought my chaps, I got them large enough that they fit over my Carhartt bib overalls, and put a hoodie on under my leather jacket. It's not a waterproof combo, but it works to keep the cold out down to 15 degrees. Now if I could just find a decent pair of gauntlet gloves to keep my hands warm and the wind from sneaking up the jacket sleeve...

That's more what I want them for. When winter hits and the salt hits the roads, my bike is parked til spring. That came real early this year.

I have a pair of Cabelas snowmobile gloves and mittens, both are goretex lined and thinsulate filled and they work amazingly well. Long gauntlets on both and a huge sheepskin patch on the backs of the mittens for cleaning goggles or a faceshield. That sheepskin really breaks up the wind when riding and with thin wool glove liners under them have served me well when riding down to -20F for several hour stints at speeds up to 80m.p.h. Adding “hippohands, which I have,” is the next step, as well as going to heated grips and or gloves. Already have “National Cycle” hand deflectors on two of the three Sporty’s. Keep it safe, and have a nice holiday!

60Gunner- I ride most all winter, some days you just can’t, and my bikes do show some rust. I keep a 2gallon pump up garden sprayer tank on hand to keep them rinsed off the best I can but it is what it is.. Keep it safe and you and your family enjoy the holiday!
