It was 34 on Sunday and I rode 20 miles.

Long sleeve undershirt, regular shirt, Nylon riding jacket with heated liners, Neck fleece.
Jeans, Chaps, lined leather gloves, ear warmer.

The plug in jacket liner or heated vest are awesome! For best results, heated liner should be worn over a base layer and then under a jacket. The liners comes as kits which Includes wiring, instruction manual, and on/off switch for regulating heat while riding. - The best cash I've spent for cold weather riding.

Chaps and heated coat and gloves. Helmet or cap. Your choice. No bulk or fuss.

Lets face it, cold weather riding for any length of time requires the extra gear and the time to gear up/gear down.
Coveralls yes, and if you want to go to motorcycle gear take a look at Aerostich Roadcrafter one piece or zip together two piece suit.
Smart gear although you won't look like a 1%'er.

I have a hard time understanding why many pay for a 20K bike and cheap out on gear. Its part of the deal.
If you only paid 5K for your bike even more reason to spend on decent gear!

Recently....

.....with these temps in the mid 30s....... my main issue has been airflow in my helmet. It makes my face very cold and my nose and cheeks get red. I don't have a chin guard to prevent the air from coming up under the helmet....but think I've fixed that problem with a face mask I use for ice fishing. It helps to block the wind. Still there is some cold air that gets in. I'm thinking I need some type of eye goggles that seal around my eyes.......... can't afford a new helmet.

The other issue is hands. Any suggestions on good gloves?

Try a neck warmer balaclava. These work very well and can be slipped up to your chin under your helmet chin strap.

Snowmobile gloves work well for me.
I get most of my winterwear at Academy Sports. Good stuff, good prices..

I'm not a porn star so I don't have to "undress quickly" when I get to work...

I wear longjohns, lined leather jacket, Under Armor neck gaiter and lined gauntlet gloves.
