    July 1995. We awoke to a sunny 37ļ in Estes Park, CO. At 1:00 pm that afternoon we were in Durango, CO. It was 107ļ. A heated jacket liner under a vented jacket under a rain jacket works great in the cold, then ditch the rain jacket and liner when it warms up. As soon as this current mess gets under control we're going to test the Klim suits in the heat.

    Regarding what temperatures to expect, I think the simple answer is "all of them".

    We take heated gear regardless of seasons for all the mentioned experiences.Better to have that option than wishing for it!
    You may zip over a pass and be ok, but the one trip I didnít take it made me not repeat that.
    I came out of AZ desert and froze going over the Grapevine headed into LA as late Spring front had snow and sleet meeting me.

    That's what you get (and deserve) for having a flashing stoplight.

    I didnít use it doing the lane split thing for the first time and getting on down the hill! Grip and rip!
