merino longs

  1. I know it's the wrong time of year in Blighty but hey...

    anyone have a line on somewhere to buy merino long tights? Without

    The MacPac ones I bought years ago are still going strong but are
    starting to show age. I have been using thermal underlayers but they
    tend to be too thin .

  2. Unfortunately, woolly underwear is always relevant in the colder parts :-(
    I got some from Howies, as being vastly cheaper than Icebreaker,
    though they were slightly thinner. They seem OK. When searching,
    I vaguely remember finding an Australian supplier.

    When winter really sets in and west-of-Scotland rain feels like liquid
    nitrogen, I opt for 2 cycling jackets one inside the other. That and
    thermal hat with added perimeter wire which keeps it firmly attached to
    heid in strong gusts of wind. Oh, and 2 pairs of winter mitten type
    cycling gloves; 1 pair in back pocket for return journey when other
    ones have become saturated by that 'liquid nitrogen'. However, my
    shorts remain in service right down to -12C; below which things get a
    bit dodgy. :)

  7. I used to ride in sandals down to -8 Celsius - the amount of ankling
    I did kept my feet from freezing, but used motorcycling gloves.
    However, I am a bit concerned by the idea of rain at -12 Celsius;
    that's definitely not something to take lightly :)
