    Moose Mitts are a product delivered from heaven! I wore fingerless gloves this morning with mine.

    There is a fairly comprehensive thread on this. The tread, in summary, sings the praises of Moose Mitts and the firm that produces them.

    This might be the sweatiest film since Barton Fink.

    It is getting to be Layers 101 time of year again. Might be a good opportunity to bump this thread for some fall reading.

    I just got some Icebreaker 100% merino thermals. I can't wait till it's cold enough to try them out.

    Let us know how you like them. That's a really nice looking line of clothes, but they seemed a bit pricey.

    I'm picking up more stuff this week. I'm doing some product testing so that I can talk to it more.

    One of the reasons the clothes are more pricey is that it is all made in the US. I have heard lots of people over the years complain about the lack of US-made cycling clothing. It is interesting and kind-of cool that Giro has responded. The quality is amazing. The styles are pretty neat!

    The Merino base layer is flawless. It is better than the Hincapie that I purchased two years ago and on-par with the Ibex that I purchased last year. We've got the sleeveless and short sleeve versions in stock.

    I'm okay spending a bit more on something well made, and something made in the US.
