    Ninety-percent of my collection is Kitsbow now. I don’t mind paying for high-quality, bespoke MTB apparel. I paid a lot for my car; I paid a lot for my bike; why not buy high-quality clothing as well?

    I love hearing these Silicon Valley d-bags who drive up to the trailhead in BMW X5s with expensive OneUp racks, telling everyone within earshot about the 1,000 shares of Apple they just sold…and they brag about finding a killer deal on a $10 pair of off-season Fox shorts they found at a bike swap. Get real.

    • Dale says:

      Nice looking gear but stupid expensive. I only buy wool cycling attire and Kitsbow’s merino anything is WAAAAAAAY overpriced. Ibex and Vintage Velos are just as good if not better and WAAAAAAAAY cheaper.

    There are times on a ride, when your feet hurt, that you would pay $126.00 for your feet to feel better. I have learned that quality socks is actually a really good place to splurge.

  • Jim McCarty says:

    Too bad they don’t make sizes for large feet. Large, as big as they go, is 10-12. Need a 2XL for us size 14 cyclists.

    $250??
    There’s a sucker born every minute, and anyone who buys MTB specific clothing sure belongs to that category.
    MTB clothing is the most overpriced nonsense I’ve ever seen.

    No, effing, way. That’s a $500 jacket that cost no more than $50 in materials and $25 in labor to make. That is some high-cost BS.

    I’ve tried both clipless with Northwave winter riding boots and flats with regular winter boots. The flats work better for me because the cleat isn’t transmitting the cold up into your foot. And I’ll second the bar mitts. Game changers for staying out longer in temps below 20F. My go-to top layer is a Marmot soft shell fleece jacket. I’ve tried Merino as a base layer up top and it didn’t work for me as well as a mid-weight or light-weight Patagonia Capilene layer. YMMV

  • Sonya Looney says:

    Awesome advice! I never thought about the cleat transmitting cold…metal IS a huge conductor. You rock!

  • thub says:

    Solid recommendations. Pogies are a must, I’m up in Alaska and can say they make all the difference. I had major issues with my feet. I picked up a pair of 45nrth Wolfgar boots and have haven’t had a problem since. I ride flats. I’ve been out as cold as -10 F and didn’t have to get off the bike and jog to warm up my feet. Stay warm and ride on!

  • dw22107 says:

    Thanks for the tips. I always take a 2nd hat in my backpack. The first hat can get wet, or if your hair gets wet. A fresh hat can get you home in comfort,.I also have an old pair of Black Diamond gloves with liners and separate shell which work really well.

  • Ted says:

    Regarding the comment on hand/toe warmers. I find that placement and breathe-ability around them have a huge impact on their effectiveness.

    If they have constant airflow over them most of the heat will get sucked right out. If you can get them tucked somewhere *close* to a ‘cold spot’ that will create a warm ‘core’ they’re much more effective. Sure you might still have some cold spots but that warm core seeps out to a good median temp.

    Word of caution… once you stop moving or manage to take haven in a warm environment, that warm core can become a burning-hot core!

  • Cathy W. Cooper says:

    Awesome article! helpful info & tips! I am wearing three layers in the winter session. I get more info and tips from this post. Thanks for sharing this info.

    If this was made out of merino instead of yoga pant material I might be interested.

    After buying a nice cycling face thingy in the past. I realized that the really cool wind block fabric about suffocates you once you get moving. I’ve had the best luck with cheap fleece $3-5 baklava.
