I have also learned to wear my Garmin stopwatch over my sleeve in the winter.  No need to have it next to my skin and having to expose the skin to read the watch. 

How have I never thought of this?

That being said, running in the cold & wet, with your sleeves pulled up [= gloves + naked arms] is a supremely badass look

I have a couple of long sleeves (one shirt, one thin sweater) that have big ass watch face openings AND thumb holes #thebest

Under 20 seems about the right zone Iím looking for, thanks. I definitely need some sort of balaclava, I have nothing good for my face.

What does everyone think about wool vs synthetics?

You need a buff with your favorite designs or meme. They're versatile and fun and can work as a headband, thin hat, mask, ear muff and towel to wipe your face. Like an American Express card in the 1980s and 1990s I don't leave home without one.

I will wear gloves inside of mittens when it's below 30; 30-40 I put hand warmers inside my mittens.  I know they're expensive, but so worth it...the Lululemon run swiftly line of long or short sleeved shirts are amazing.  I can't really do wool, so this is the next best thing.  If it's under 40, I layer one of those with a vest.  I have a Lulu toque that i also love. 

If I remember correctly, you're in Texas...

Hand warmers for me are for below 25 and windy.

I buy the handwarmers at Walmart of BB&B (with coupon), about $6-7 for a ten pack.

1.  Suffering unnecessarily seems more dumbass than badass.

Mizuho makes a line of gloves and I think probably a hat where once the material gets damp/wet it heats up. I call them my magic gloves. I love them.
