|Can someone suggest to me a GOOD cold weather jacket/windbreaker? I hate to just blindly order
on-line. Also, a good website to find one?
|for training, commuting, or what?||Spoiler|

|Are you looking fore a jacket you can wear just for riding?
The this page
has some of the nicest windproof jackets available. I bought a team jacket similar to the Spanish National jacket and it's great. The problem is that it's a little flashy to wear off the bike.

|It was given to me as a gift, and it really a beautiful garment. I have the black one - hides dirt, grease, etc. better. It is also the warmest bike jacket out there, good for temps in the teens. It is a LOT of money, but then it is a LOT of jacket.|
|I use a PI Barrier jacket...||biknben|

|I used it for commuting through a bad winter last year. For me it was too warm when above freezing. I rode in the single digits with it and at least that part of my body was warm.
The retail for around $150 but can had for $100 or maybe less.

|Legendary warmth that's worth the price. I personally layer up a lot so I get away with lighter weight stuff, but every time i go out and It's cold, I never regret this jacket.

|How cold do you wanna go? For most of my riding I found a vest is perfect. Not hot enough that I start sweating (and get cold) but blocks the wind from your torso to keep you warm.
I have several different weights of arm warmers for different temp ranges. I have lycra, mid-weight fleeced, and heavier-weight fleeced for the really cold days.
