FWIW, I just received mine from New Enough this week. So far, so good. I live in AL, so the liner hasn't been necessary yet (nothing below the mid-40s).

I've only worn it a few times, but I like it a lot. I'm by no means an expert, but the jacket seems to be a quality one. I like the flexibility of being able to remove the liner, given that warmer temps are more likely to be an issue for me (which is why I decided against the Ducati 80s jacket). However, I doubt the liner would make the jacket significantly warmer. Sounds like you're looking for some serious cold-weather gear.

I am looking for something that would block out the wind and not be too cold for a 30 min commute in 30~40 degree temps... nothing heated or anything... I appreciate the input, I hope someone else can chime in with some experiences or maybe some glove suggestions.

I may look into heated grips or something but right now I need a jacket, gloves and over pants of some sort... I was frozen by the time I got to work this morning .. 21 miles in 37 degrees... I got to get better gloves and a good jacket.

Get the Cortech Decker pants, they zip into the Coaster jacket. I have both. With the right clothing underneath, you'll be fine down to freezing.

Next winter, I'm getting Gerbing's electrically heated gloves and jacket liner.

Anyone have any experience with the ICON TiMax jacket? I have the pants and they are warm, I dont know know if they are warm enough as I have not tried them in the real cold, but since I have the pants the jacket would connect to the pants..

I am guessing that the Coaster would be better anyone have a TiMax jacket that has tried it in the cold?

You know, I've been riding in the cold for years now and the one part of my body that isn't cold is my lower extremities. I always wear my Burton snowboard pants over my jeans. they have cuffs at the bottom w/ Velcro enclosures that go over my boots and keep the wind from going up my pant leg and keep my ankles very toasty. They are also lightweight and you can move around well in them. Warm, windproof, waterproof, and light.... you can't ask for any more. (except very little protection). just a suggestion
