Well it is officially winter in Seoul, South Korea. On Friday we got down to -12C with winds over 30km/h! I’m using my WINDSTOPPER Windchill-Calculator to see how cold it felt, it reads -30C with wind. Wow! With this in mind I headed out this Saturday to gear up for winter riding. I usually ride 30 milers down on the Han River here in Seoul and it can get really windy even on a good day. As part III of my clothing system I needed a weather barrier. I did a little research and came upon a brand called Windstopper. It was created by the people that made Gore-Tex, a company called Gore. Simple design with three layers to provide windproof fabric with moisture wicking ability. The soft shell version offers mild water resistance and snow protection as well.
