Clothing Question
4 Replies

I'm sure that quite a few Chainlinkers have apparel incorporating Columbia's Omni-Heat technology, which basically seems related to those shiny survival blankets.  I'm thinking about buying a few…Continue

Here We Go Again
5 Replies

I see that even four years isn't going to be enough for construction of the Navy Pier flyover -- it's going to extend into the middle of 2019.  So now we're talking about five years and more than $60…Continue

South Side To Elgin Route

I've been thinking it would be a good adventure this spring or summer to ride out and visit friends in Elgin.  I live around 40th and Western.  I would appreciate any advice on routes, either full or…Continue

Jim Reho replied to Jaik S.'s discussion Advice: It's Mitten Season!
"I think your suggestion is great.  I've used these under mitten shells.  However, at the link you gave the cost would be about $20.00 for the two pairs, shipped.  I would try eBay for a better deal."

"I have a shirt that I wear in below freezing weather only. I wear a wicking layer an insulating layer then the reflective then 2 outer layers. It's great at keeping me warm but only if I'm moving generating heat. The wind will blow through…"

Sean Newby replied to Jim Reho's discussion Clothing Question
"I have a jacket that I use for the absolute coldest days and find that even then it can be too warm, depending on how and what I am layering with. If the lining is just a marketing gimmick by Columbia then it's a pretty effective one!"

Gene Tenner replied to Jim Reho's discussion Clothing Question
"I have used a Columbia Omni-Heat jacket as my outer shell for years and have ridden it below zero. I do not know if the little shiny discs work or not, but I have stayed warm. The only problem I have is I wished I had bought one with a hoodie."

Clothing Question

I'm sure that quite a few Chainlinkers have apparel incorporating Columbia's Omni-Heat technology, which basically seems related to those shiny survival blankets.  I'm thinking about buying a few Omni-Heat items for myself.  Any opinions?  Is this a really effective technology or just a gimmick?  Are there competing products?  Thanks!  See More

Jim Reho replied to mike w.'s discussion 12 years' sentence in cyclist's death
"Maybe so.  If so, they should have charged him with regular manslaughter, reckless driving, or anything that would actually held him accountable for hitting the cyclist without them having to prove he was intoxicated.  I just hate to see…"

Jim Reho replied to Bill Seliger's discussion Commute route advice - Northside to 2801 S Western
"Of course, no one is being critical of Bill.  I think what you're trying to point out, and correct me if I'm wrong, is that the battle to get east to the LFP from Damen or Pulaski, and then west from the LFP to 28th and Western,…"
