howdy all,

i have been reading a lot of revzilla reviews as well as reviews here on winter riding gear, and a thought struck me after seeing jackets upwards of $400.

does anybody just use carhartt quilted coveralls for winter riding? i used to wear them back in the '80s when i last rode and they were perfect (for central VA winters, where it can go down to the single-digits rarely, and most of the time in the 40s).

i don't like the idea of an all-in-one jacket, nor do i like zipping out liners and zipping them back in. i'd rather have something simple for the winter that i can wear over my clothes, and spend decent money on a good leather jacket for spring, summer and fall, and a rain suit to put on over it if needed.

does anybody else do this?

thanks,

-eric
