If you are suffering from cold on the chest a good solution is a bigger screen that deflects the wind....but screens are a whole different topic. I find a bigger screen in the winter invaluable, along with some deflectors for the feet too

One of these helps a lot when combined with a good heated jacket / body warmer  :028: :028:

Yes, I use something similar...it's always good to have options.

Another thing I like about a bigger screen is that your visor stays clean, did 180 mile on Sunday and no need to clean it, which is amazing considering the weather/roads.

I've acquired a massive Givi screen, haven't tested it yet, but a good 5 inches taller and probably that again wider, I'll let you know, but expecting good things from it.

F**k that's massive!!

I actually find the wind buffeting less intrusive with the standard screen on lowest position, I know it's doing it's job there as I seriously considered removing it completely during the summer. I wasn't getting any breeze over the screen in the hot weather.

I have one of these from scala, and instantly noticed the difference. However, I've been rest up in hospital this last week (an infection that turned septic, nothing bike related) and haven't actually had a chance to combine it with the heated jacket yet. But the times I have used it before now have been better but not completely cured the problem. They also do a balaclava version and I'm wondering if that might have been a better choice?? But I got this one as it's the one that covers the chest the most, that I could find, well recommend!
