Couldn't agree more.
But that said, I'm apparently a little more minimalist than most. I'm fine with just a heated vest and heated grips. As long as my core is toasty warm and my hands are comfortable, my arms don't get very cold, nor do my legs. I actually really enjoy going for rides when it's in the 20s and 30s out provided the roads are dry.
Was out for an early spring ride once with a friend and we stopped at a gas station to take a quick break and have some coffee. We stood there chatting for a moment, drinking our coffee, and the wind was whipping along, and after a few minutes of that one of us turned to the other and said, "Brr, it's cold out here! Let's get back on the bikes where it's warm!"
Yeah, I love electrics.
