Picture of Emergency: Cold Weather Gear
IMG_20130213_072220_0_zpsb2ec7c1b.jpg
  I had an early appointment today and woke up to 34F.  Now, I live in Phoenix Arizona.  Also called, "The Valley Of The Sun".  To say the least, I was ill prepared and in need of some cold weather gear.  This was my fast solution.

  Using some thin rubber gloves I had, I covered them with cotton gloves to insulate the rubber.  It worked quite well for cold wind and no moisture.   This would be useless if water where involved.  Oh look the Rosemary is flowering. Its soooo cold!

I suggest slipping on wool socks . Yep , on your hands . That whole opposable thumb thing is over rated . Seriously you can do " most " things with them on and they're even pretty warm if they get wet .

That's a brilliant idea Ray. I also happen to know it comes from experience. Thanks
I think you probably remember I cut the toes out of the really big socks some times and use them as arm warmers too . Changing gears can be a challenge at times but I don't have a problem with the hand brakes .

Brawny men like you have my respect and admiration! I would never venture out on my bike whenever is too cold or too hot.

You need to do it at reverse way. Inside the cotton outside the rubber.
The rubber stops the wind and moist and the cotton warm your hand...

I understand where you are coming from. This was a fast solution to a cold problem. If i had the correct sizes on hand, that may have been the outcome.

Depending on the size of your hand and the size of the gloves, If it will fit the other way around you might want to try the rubber coated glove over the cotton glove for some level of moisture barrier.

I agree. This was about making do with what I had.
