Craft Pro Hydro Running Jacket 2
Don’t skip this one just because the Craft Pro Hydro Running Jacket 2 is designed for “running.” As someone who has had to log many marathon training miles in frigid temps, a good running jacket that offers ventilation and mobility will easily function as mountain biking outerwear. The wind and waterproof 3L laminated fabric has a soft, silky feel and is more stretchy and flexible than a typical hardshell rain coat. Men’s and women’s styles available.

Fox Racing Men’s Ranger 3L Water Pants
The Fox Ranger 3L Waterproof Pants turn up season extension to eleven. These pants have the same pair of hip pockets, ratcheted waist closure, and racy fit, now with 3L waterproof layers to keep the mud out. There’s a little more space in the legs to make up for the fact that the material doesn’t stretch much, and these feel comfortable on the bike no matter the weather. Read more.

Ortovox Westalpen Swisswool Hybrid Jacket
The Ortovox Westalpen Swisswool Hybrid jacket is a technical jacket that is deceptively warm. Pair this hybrid jacket as a mid-layer with any waterproof shell for complete protection and warmth on the bike, or under a ski parka if you’re skiing or boarding this winter. Men’s and women’s styles available. Read more.
Specialized Trail Pants
These pants are wicked comfortable, which seems to be the story with most of the tighter race cut trousers. There is plenty of space for kneepads as long as they are the thinner pedal-oriented sort. These pants work fine when the trail is wet, and the sky isn’t, and I would happily pedal in them down to 50° F. Read more.
