Now that its cold in PA......Windchilled
Jan 3, 2002 8:08 AM
What do you GUYS do about windchill down "there"???? I've got good booties and gloves and a headband for my ears, so the only part that feels the cold is the one part you really really really don't want to! Does anyone make windproof tights? I'm currently riding swobo wool tights as well as standard pearl izumi full lengths (not at same time). I find the wind hits my chest and gets funnelled down to the boys, and i have to end my rides after 30-45mins of this pain on days around 35 degrees or below. so what home remedies do you guys out there have?

It keeps the boys warm and will impress the ladies. Seriously, I'll use a sock, an old glove, or basically any other item of clothing to block the wind. Heck, I'll wear three layers and the boys are still frozen.

DuFold makes brief-style underwear with a windstopper crotch. Works great! Check out RoadRunner Sports (not sure of the website address), I'm pretty sure they have it.
Helly Hansen makes LIFA Windshorts...nigel

which sound like the same thing. I got mine from either Performance or Nashbar. Blue briefs with comfortable, no-chafe seams, and a windproof panel. The LIFA material wicks perspiration away, too. I think they were about $15 or $20. Well worth it!

Keep 'em toasty,

cold weather tights that are (I think) better than the am-fib. They are totally windproof in the front and have extra in the nether-world zone. I've never had a problem with them, even down to sub-zero wind chills. They are about 50.00 and VERY well worth it...

keep em warm...

I have PI thermafleece tights and Hind Drilete tights and have been comfortable for the past 2 nights commuting home in the low 20's. "The boys" have been OK. BTW-where in PA?
