I like the Cornwell neoprene gloves made by Northcoast wetsuits, about $25 Us or 17 UK on e-bay. My favorite cheep-o trick is using a tyvek envelope from fedex or the US postal service between my undershirt and my jersey, they are windproof, warm and easy to pull out if it gets too warm, and best of all free! You can also cut the corners of of one and put them in your shoes to keep your toes warm.

I get on really well with my Tudor Sport man tights. They are quite thick and sort of soft and fluffy on the inside. I've never gone out in them and been cold on my legs. I like their tops too...

I've still got a pair of original 'plusses' like these. They get worn on retro rides on 'chilly' days when tights may be to much. Mind you, the elastic went years ago and even the braces I use have seen better days!

The seat area is a bit well worn too................... :roll:
