Buffalo Windfilter Windplus thermals from £37.99
It looked as though we might get away with it, but winter has now clamped its jaws shut with frosty fury. Perfect timing then for Buffalo to release these new windproof thermal midlayers, which combine a windproof outer layer with a fleece lining for comfort and insulation. The shirt and trousers both have elasticated waists and drawcords to block out draughts and flat seams to stop them digging into the rider’s skin. The Winter Plus shirt is £39.99, trousers are £37.99 and inner gloves are £15.99. There is also a balaclava (£17.99) and a neckwarmer (£14.99).
