as the weather turns colder its nice to have some kit based incentive to get out there so how about listing the bits of kit you love?
For me its my Rapha winter collar - truly breathable, warm and not even that expensive (for Rapha) and works great in all temperature ranges from slightly chilly when it doesnt boil you down to brass monkeys.

My Craft 3D armwarmers - they're just so versatile, i'm also fond of my Sealskinz thermal waterproof socks worn over cycling socks.

Pair of Oktos Thermtec gloves bought on sale in Condor ten years ago, not the most expensive or glamorous piece of kit I have but they keep my fingers very toasty  4

Mind you, I do love my black Rapha winter jersey (pink piping but doesn't have the white armband) - wear it a lot casually this time of year too.

Buff! Nothing is more versatile.
Not the winter ones though, for really cold days I use up to three summer Buffs.

My Rapha merino hat - perfect under a helmet - warm as toast, repels water but dries quickly if it does get wet. Second would be my Rapha Softshell ... bullet-proof quality !

my single speed Boardman is a laugh to ride at this time of year, or any time really but i tend to use it more during the winter. oh and my howies merino baselayer, at work or on the bike. works best any which way.

DHB momentum jersey, bought it after reading the review on here and its super toasty, -6 when I left the house this morning and pairing it with a merino base layer no problem with being cold at all.

Shimano MW80 winter riding boots. They're supposedly MTB shoes, but that's brilliant, they keep my feet toasty on and off road.

Merino Buff.

Paramo Jacket.

I one thing I didn't want to have this year was cold toes, so my BBB Heavy Duty overshoes are doing the trick rather nicely, with thicker ones for wet days (we do get a few in Embra  1 )
