I echo what others have said about heated gear.

A health problem (unable to keep myself warm) almost stopped my riding, but heated gear saved me. I started with a home-made waistcoat, before commercial gear was generally available. I made it from Constan resistance wire sewn into an old thin golfing jacket. Since then I've had several makes, all worked well.

Apart from comfortable warmth on tap, heated apparel also means you don't have to wear endless pullovers and look like Bibendum (Michelin Man)!

$327 + $49 shipping for the same boots I bought at my local retailer for $400, where I was able to try them on and they had a full selection of sizes.

I don't have a bucket list, I have a post-bucket list. So far it includes
1) Coroner's report is to read "Death by misadventure."
2) Dixieland jazz band at my funeral.

Not sure, but even if 18% possible textile tax...I'm still ahead of the curve by several hundred dollars.

Huh. I was *told* they were Goretex -- I wonder if I was lied to. Where are you located that the price is $669?

I just took a look at mine, and don't see any label that tells me if they are "Rain" or Goretex. Does anyone know how to tell which is which?

Well sunny beaches. I was sold "Gore-Tex" but got boots that don't have this label.
