Take your riding shirt, whatever it may be, say a Under Armour, and jacket, then just take a Gerbing liner. It has a wide range of warmth comfort. Leave all the layering home.
Yea that works if your not camping when it's cold. Unless I'm mistaken, I'll be camping in 30F or less when I get farther out West in Sept. I do it all the time here in New England with my bike and I find riding below 55F without heated jacket/gloves-I'm really bumming-even with heated grips. Strange because I can ice climb all day in 5F with much less clothing,but I'm almost always moving so I'm sure that's the difference.
I'm not trying to be argumentative, I just don't want you guys to think I want to take stuff "just in case",I really do want to only carry what I'll need so keep that comments coming.
