Christmas Wish List

The wife want to know what to get me this year. I've been thinking about a riding jacket and pants so I can extend my riding season into the wet and colder days. Being 6'4", 270 lbs I need an outfit that is approx2XL Tall.

Looking for input from you all about what to ask for.

Ride History
2005 DL 650
1989 TREK 850 Mountain Bike
1974 SCHWINN BANANA SEAT (probably worth more than the wee now, oh well)

If you really want to extend a riding season ask for a heated jacket.

I got Gerbings heated jacket and gloves a few years ago, one of the best things I ever bought. I now prefer riding in the colder weather, was out yesterday, it was in the low 40's with a light rain, but I was all snuggly warm.

Oh yes, this. And maybe heated gloves to plug into the sleeves. Gerbings are really nice and last time I looked they'd custom size for you, which, since it seems like you're not an off-the-rack sized guy, is a really really good idea.
