I thought about one of those Bohn Armor shirts under my Carharts. The armor would be good under a t-shirt in the summer, too. I've gone down to 37deg so far without getting cold on a short ride.

I think you should get one of those huge space-suit-like snow suits we wore when we were kids. With huge snowpants and big moon boots to keep your feet warm :)... haha...

Honestly though I was thinking the same thing after the ride Saturday... I had a great time but even with 2 layers and a lined jacket I was shivering like a... well like whatever shivers a lot.

The jacket fits so snugly that I doubt I'd be able to shove a fleece or something under there...

Maybe that electric clothing is the way to do... I can't help but be a little nervous about wiring myself up though ;)...

Snowmobile suit would work fine... just make sure you've got enough room to layer underneath. The Bohn "undershirt" is a great idea as well.

And the baddest, warmest gloves or mittens you can find. I have a pair of leather snowmobile mittens... they're about 25 years old but still block wind quite nicely.

I was just at Sportmart and they have a great sale on the pants and bibs. Regular $80.00 on sale for $39. Wind proof/waterproof and breathable. Just my .02

Problem solved - Wear a 7-9mm wetsuit under your regular clothes. You'll be real warm. You might walk a little stiff though :D

That's almost as good of an idea as my moon-suit snowsuit idea.

Does anyone know if any dealers here in chicago actually stock the electrically heated jackets/gloves/pants/etc?

I've heard some of the guys have heated vests. Some also have heated hand grips. Between that and a good head sock you should be nice and toasty in almost any weather round here.

I managed to get my jacket on with a fleece under it...but I couldn't bend my arms to bucklethe helmet without unzipping the jacket.

For you NON snowmobile fans out there....they do make bibs and jackets in leather for snowmobiling. You stay pretty warm at sub zero temps at 90+mph. ;)

I would like to see a bunch of guys rolling up on sportbikes wearing snowmobile suits :)

Why not just layer nicely, put your liner in your jacket, throw your balacava on, and ride :D
