For 2011, there was a good selection of Womens Cold Weather Motorcycle gear to choose from. We based our picks off of customer reviews, female customer feedback and lightly off of sales history for carryover products from last year. This mix should offer a smattering of what we consider staple products along with some of the newer and edgier recent products which could grow to be game-changers and are showing early promise. To be considered a solid women's cold weather / winter motorcycle gear pick, a product had to offer a thermal liner, CE rated armor, be at least water resistant if not completely waterproof, and be built in a method to offer great protection, fit and style to a female rider. The majority of the gear was specifically built to suit the needs of the savvy woman motorcycle rider through the cold season.
