By keeping your core warm and dry, a good base layer can be the difference between a winter ride being miserable or being bearable, maybe even fun. Gore Bike Wear uses fabric mapping to ensure riders get wind protection in exposed areas and ventilation in areas prone to sweating. The fabrics used in the garment also help move sweat away from your skin, so as you dial up your effort, you won’t end up clammy. Gore’s patented Windstopper fabric is windproof, breathable, and highly water resistant — essentially eliminating whatever excuse you were about to use for not riding. [$80; goreapparel.com]
