Inspired by the nice 40 degree and rainy days we are getting more and more of I thought I would ask this fair community if they could share their personal experiences with cold weather cycling clothing, more specifically a jacket that wont make me look like I am just back from space.
This isn't for long distance recreational cycling, as that largely gets shelved for the winter, and I have some bright blue spandex that handles most situations adequately. I am more specifically looking for a nice, not too expensive, WINDPROFF, strongly water resistant, nice flexibility, longer sleeves, and no hood that I wont be able to use anyways. I will be using this to get around town, so if its not some neon color that burns my eyes and is actually comfortable and warm that would be fantastic, bonus points for accessible pockets during cycling.
Also tacking on an additional question, would anyone have any particular recommendation for a pack I should invest in, or a good online store for some something bike friendly?
