I’ve been on a personal wet-weather riding endeavor lately, as for the first 29 years of my life I’ve had the pleasure of living in a climate where rainfall is the exception, not the rule. Now I’m living in ol’ Blighty though, I’ve had to learn a whole lot more about winter riding apparel than I ever thought was possible.
My induction began just before my first UK winter when Chipps and I drove up the road to visit Endura in Scotland. The crew kitted me out with a bunch of gear, and then Chipps wrote a how-to article called: Winterising Wil: A Guide To Dressing For Winter Riding. Since then, I’ve been using a variety of cold weather gear, some of which ended up in my 8 winter essentials feature that we published just before Christmas. Not everything made it into that feature, however, like these Endura MT500 Waterproof Trousers that I’ve been using for a little over a year now.
