    For anyone who has hands that get cold easily, you may want to consider mittens instead of regular gloves. Wool is a good option because it keeps your hands warm even if the gloves get a little wet, and wool mittens generally aren’t overly bulky. I personally have cheap nylon mittens that are water resistant. The bulkier the mittens, the more difficulty you’ll have using your hands for braking and shifting gears.

    Layers are key. thermals, pants, then a rain/snow layer when necessary. same for up top. avoid cotton. synthetics and wools are better underneath a softshell or hardshell. mittens that act as a shell with a liner of your choice are super warm and flexible. wool socks. for the head i use a fleece balaclava and a smartwool gaiter on top. gives me options for varying degress and conditions. i think the key to staying warm and happy is having clothing that allows you to move freely and also bundle/abandon when weather changes. don’t overthink it tho. just be prepared for a little variance.
