I don't buy things so they "Match good" or look cool, I buy things because they work . You can get your HJC gloves that "match my Arctic cat orange jacket nicely" and thats all well and good but what would you feel like looking good and matching your Arctic Cat Jacket, when your getting frostbite or freezing to death. Not so much huh? My Klim gloves are red and orange, they are a far cry from the Cat green and black heavy jacket or my Drift White and Green half jacket. Look at the specs, pay attention to the grams of insulation, not the color match, might save you a finger or two. If you haven't been out in -20 to -30 degree weather prepare yourself just in case a front comes through while your out. On a sled trip getting caught in a front without enough warm clothes can ruin your day.
Now the Crosstour windshield I specifically bought for the mirror mounts. Back in 2015 that was the only one you could get with mounts for the big mirrors, now you can get them for the LXR windsheild. The windshield is perfect, nice blocking the wind. When it gets around -10F I put gauntlets on. It's a lot warmer than my friends DOO. I'd never use a short windshield but I'm always out when it's below zero.
Woah man, don't get your feathers ruffled there. I think you took what I said a little too to heart. Just because I like things to match, doesn't mean I overlook function. If you want to look like a snowmobile poster boy for the gay pride community when you ride, then by all means go for it. You won't have any issues from me, I'll cheer you on.
Like I mentioned above, my gloves aren't a concern for me. I've gone in plenty of 20-30 below temperatures in the past winters to know how to prepare for them, I just haven't *this year* on *this machine* yet, hence the questions about windshields handguards, just to see if one helps more over the other, or if both are a good choice for these chassis.
If it makes you feel any better, I'm usually the guy of group that carries plenty of backup gear, gloves, hand and feet warmers, survival gear, extra tools, tow ropes, and hell, even toiletries (for those who don't want to find cedar leaves and snow) on a long run, within my saddlebags.
And you'll be happy to know, I still have all of my digits!
