I just happened to stop in Cycle Gear today to pick up an air pressure gauge, and came across the Freeze Out gear. It doesn't really get cold enough here to need it until like January, but for $25, I figured I'd give it a shot to compare to my Schampa tops.

I haven't ridden with the Freeze Out yet, but the cut is ever so slightly more generous than the Schampa, which fits me perfectly underneath my jacket. I'm interested to see how "windproof" it is, because Schampa pretty much doesn't provide any wind protection. They keep you comfortably warm though. I also like the arm cutouts on the Freeze Out because they are thinner than the Schampa's arm cutouts... makes putting your gloves on over them easier.

^ Pretty much my feelings as well. Although, Schwampa does make a shirt now that has a "windproof" chest panel. Did you not get a free FreezeOut shirt as well? I picked out both a LG and a MD, as my weight can yo-yo quite a bit and this will cover me both ways.

The Freeze-Out shirts are well worth the $25 IMO.

Arcteryx Jacket that I own is downright Awesome! I trust that jacket over any other jacket that I have owned....

I wear that shell over my leather jacket along with my Wind/water proof pants from REI.

I just picked up all the freeze out great yesterday at cycle gear, while picking up some parts for a forum members bike I am working on.

I haven't worn it yet or even tried them on besides the gloves. I bought the long johns, long sleeve shirt, neck wrap, gloves and balaclava. Overall for the price of it on sale, I would say its a good buy. I don't know if I would ever pay full price for it, even though it may be worth it. Total, $90, and to not be cold and extend my season, not to shabby.

I was concerned about the stitching on the gloves after reading the reviews about the seams busting. After trying it on, I didn't see it becoming a concern anytime soon. The overall material looks ok, but not sure if it could hold up after 100 washings. I spoke with the salesman a cycle gear and said I could return them for any reason, at any time, for up to 5 years. That gave me some reassurance.

As soon as I test it out, I will post up a further review. Time will tell.

Ok so I tested the freeze out gear last week. It was 42 degrees and I have to say, I am impressed. I went for a 90 minute ride and it was all highway. I was pretty warm. I really didn't dress that warm due to wanting to really test it out. It was well worth the money. Beside my leather jacket and gloves, I was wearing jeans and a sweater. Pretty good for not bundling up.

The glove liners were ok but could be slightly warmer. I definitely wouldn't ride without them at that temperature.

for the money the freeze out stuff is tough to beat. I have it all too. I wished i had gotten the regular shirt though because the zippers let a lot of air in imo.
