@vinay: Gore does make some killer gear. I like a lot of their gear.

Actually you can wear all of this in Squamish, @laminar; 7Mesh is based there and those guys ride year round, too. It's all just a matter of layering up properly. Of course when the trails get buried, though, all bets are off.

The comfortable range is entirely dependable on how you choose to layer up, @semanuel; that's the beauty of using a shell and a layering system. You can layer up for precisely the conditions that you typically ride in. 3C? Base layer and medium weight mid layer. Below freezing? Add a skull cap or a mid light vest. It all depends on your personal preference.

A skull cap will allow you to use your regular bike helmet, @mattmovesmountains; your snowboard helmet isn't really designed to protect your head for the kind of impacts a bike crash can dish out. A skull cap will easily fit under your helmet and will also cover your ears. As to gloves, I can't wear those kind without freezing my fingers off. I need some insulation.

@iantmcg: definitely. Typically I just hose my stuff off after a ride and let it drip dry until I can really tell that the breathability has gone to hell or I can see that the fabric is wetting out. If the DWR is still intact, the mud will spray off easily. If it's really sticking, then I know it's time to use tech wash to refresh it. If it's still not breathing properly, I'll use T-X Direct to reapply the DWR.

We reviewed Dakine last year and they didn't have anything new in this year's line up. Although they have something in the works, I hear.

We may be able to switch clothing for the shoots, but not the bikes.

We had pretty mild temperatures and weather when we shot the gear, @frankmajesty; we had to shoot everything before we started abusing it. But we tested it in a good mix of weather. Not super cold, we had a surprisingly mild autumn in Hood River this year until this past week: snow and freezing rain.

That's a shame; wet weather riding is great. Properly built and maintained trails are just fine in the wet.

Come visit then and get in some good, muddy ride time in our 'hood. You'll love it. Or head to Sedona, AZ and get in some desert riding time.
