Re: clothing

I personnally like a fasionable jacket, Not leather (too heavy) Gore-tex bibs- a lot of money but a dry rear end is necessary for great comfort. A good quality helmet with a double pane shield(could save your life), regular 5 finger gloves,not mitts(the handlebar heaters will keep your hands warm). And get some quality boots $100-$200.

Re: clothing

When my wife started sledding last year I new that to keep her interest the absolute most important issue was how to keep her
warm and dry. Our answer was to buy her cabelas gore-tex bibs, for around 120 bucks and cabelas gor-tex systems gloves for 39 bucks
These are what I wear and both our neighbors ride with the same exact gear as us now and we are all totally happy with it. We ride
in the mountains of the north west in all kinds of weather, heavy snow falls, sunny warm days, spring moist damp rides and have never
once gotten wet inside, ever. we totally swear by gore tex and have been totally satisfied with all Cabelas merchandiseHope this helps.

Re: clothing

Cabela's clothing has to be purchased directly from Cabelas. They are a mail order company based out of Nebraska and their main focus is on hunting/fishing, but they have excellent products and their customer service can't be beat. Try www.cabelas.com and you will either find what you are looking for or you can order a catalog.

Re: clothing

I was wondering if anyone knew of any snow wear that is comfortable for a pretty tall and big guy. I'm about 6"3, and I have trouble finding long enough pants, especially good bibs. I've found tons of clothes dealers on the internet such as: reima.fi denniskirk.com joerocket.com jrgraham.com
I just don'w want go through all the trouble if I don't know they will fit right.

Re: clothing

PLEASE let me know what you find!!! I am 6'5", 230lbs and have not had any luck finding any bibs that fit me. Right now I wear CHEAP ($30) nylon bibs from Farm&Fleet. I wrap plastic (food wrap) over sweat pants from my knees to my butt before getting into my bibs - I still get wet!

Re: clothing

I just ordered some gore-tex bibs from Cabelas. they have big sizes and extra tall sizes. Kinda spendy, but I think they will be good. If not, then I'm going to do some bitching. I'll let ya know how they fit when I get them in a couple weeks.
