Exactly, Eric. I live in northern Vt and generally ride down to 15 or so. I own a pair of Ibex wool jackets of different weight. A light weight wool jacket over a wool base & wool shirt and then topped off with the Showers pass rain jacket is what I use for temps below freezing. The showers pass jacket is very well thought out and made. The cuffs work well with gloves, even lobster claws; it has pit zips for ventilation, and a rear and breast pockets. The zippers are extremely tight and I treated mine with silicon to ease them up. I usually unzip the bottom zipper as I head out, so I can lift it up on the move when I need to. I still have to stop to operate the pit zips. Ibex & Showers Pass make a great winter riding combo. The Ibex jackets are of course nice enough to wear just about anywhere.
