Does It Really Work?

I knew this day would come. We're experiencing the coldest weather we've had in quite a while.

I recently bought some long underwear. Two pair wound up in my shopping cart. One is the traditional waffle weave stuff. The other pair is some new, synthetic, space age material.

I've tested both. This is where Leckey's new web cam would come in handy, but I'll spare you the horror. The high tech stuff is more comfortable. The waffle weave is warmer. It comes down to this. If it's a moderatley cold morning, the new material works for me. If it's super duper cold, I'll take the same thing people have been wearing for decades. There are times when newer isn't better.
