27 Below

The brilliant sunshine and cold temperatures pulled me outside this afternoon for a short ride in a nearby park, then a trip across town to finally get a donut. The temperature was five below zero F, with a windchill of negative 27, so I bundled up, and wound up being pretty much a-okay – or even a tiny bit too warm. My kit:

  • boots
  • wool inner socks
  • wool outer socks
  • longjohns
  • briefs
  • wicking shirt
  • thermal tights
  • thermal top
  • fleece vest
  • wind jacket
  • balaclava
  • cycling cap
  • helmet
  • liner gloves
  • mittens
  • goggles
