Too true. I wear army shorts for bicycle riding until December 1 or whenever I start feeling chilly...then I switch to the kilt.

Still, I feel I should give the foulies a chance. Maybe I'll just Scotchguard the existing Gore-Tex shell (which has very long arms with velcro cuffs and an integral hood) and add a mix of fleeces and thermals beneath.

I have a gigantic raincoat (zips and velcro everywhere) but I look like I'm auditioning as the mascot for "Fisherman's Friend" lozenges with it on, or a crossing guard in Norway.
