At 67 I don't use the 'awesome' word much, but in this case it is warranted. 1st ride today in CT's "lovely" Dec. weather. 50 miles, 37 deg's (25 w/ the wind chill). Pit-zips & the chest pocket are great for venting. I was completely comfy with just a baselayer. The free gloves seem pretty good too. Wore a pair of polypro liners and no frozen digits.
