Default What to wear in 50-degree weather?

Temps were 52 at Bear Mountain this week. I was wearing only a light Bonfire Volt jacket and Bonfire Spectral pants with a lightweight Underarmour Heat Gear base layer. I had my vents opened the whole time but still was getting hot and sweating on the lift... my baselayer felt sorta wet in the chest area.

So what should I be wearing in these temps? I see kids just rocking longsleeve shirts, but I need something to be still snow-proof because I'll fall when in the park.

I run a light baselayer to wick moisture and a shell jacket and pant...vents open. 52 is hot when you're used to 20's.

52 degrees Fahrenheit? a t shirt

Seriously though, I would just look for a long sleeve or t shirt that is waterproof material

Well I am actually going to summit tomorrow and I usually just wear my shell jacket with all the vents open and still am really hot, and my shell pants and also end up very hot. Only real goal of wearing this stuff is to stay dry.

Proof the states is full of hipsters...

Okay so in all seriousness, when it's 10 degrees or so I'll just wear my upper body armor, pants, helmet, etc.

In full on spring weather nothing better than riding in a t-shirt!

Where can i find a t-shirt that is waterproof material? Is there a specific name for them, or link to any for reference?

I would just look for an under armor shirt or any workout shirts, they should be alright. If you dont have that just ride in a regular t shirt and get wet out there! not the end of the world

How'd you know I was a pats fan? It should be good tomorrow! The odds heavily favour the patriots, which worries me. Every playoff game worries me. I'm watching at my neighbours house tomorrow, he's a soccer fan so he's going to see what it's like having a football fan yell at the TV for 4 hours!

I usually cry when they win in the playoffs
