Wind proof seems to translate into not so breathable which sucks. I can wear a sweater and stay warm while still getting rid of sweat.
I work outside all winter long. I'm up high in the wind and cold and I also ride to work some of these days. I have some ideas about how to dress for staying warm that haven't been so popular with some folks opinions. But they work inside all day long so I don't listen to them.
I bought a ZeroXposur shell a while back because it was cheap and I really needed a jacket. I hate that thing. You wear it for 5 minutes and you're sweating like hell.
What do you do for work?
Cotton seems like an odd choice, but i'd be interested to hear why you choose that, but that sounds like a "what's your baselayer?" Thread
I do metal work outside. Fancy stuff, commercial stuff and residential stuff. Mostly executive level homes and commercial. The photo is from part of one of the more fancy projects I've worked on. So today that and maybe tomorrow a DOT snowplow building - which I have done a few of.
Cotton? Creates a kind of r value layer between long underwear shirt and wool sweater. Yes I know about cotton and what different fabric is good for and not good for. I'm not swimming in the cotton in the winter. Just using it a layer of thickness between undershirt and sweater to keep wind back.
