Quote:Well I no longer can tolerate the cold weather here in the mid Atlantic area much less the New England (or Canadian ) weather...Investing less then $500 bucks to buy heated motorcycle clothing works extremely well for me..I'm very comfortable down way way below freezing.. with just a pair of heated glove liners a jacket liner and heated socks ... Never found a need for heated pants YET !The glove liners are tight fitting (one size too small) but I can type at the computer without removing them plus they have heating elements between each finger as well as on the back of the hand Bob G.
Enjoy the sky,
