I would strongly recommend that you buy yourself an insulated boiler suit. These are practical, warm one-piece garments that can be rapidly zipped on and off, which sounds ideal for your application. Perhaps not the most stylish thing to wear on the street though!

We used to have these at BAS: http://www.dickiesstore.co.uk/dickies-workwear/dickies-and-redhawk-overalls/dickies-deluxe-overalls/WD2360R

I would echo Sam's points about buffs and gloves. I like Marigold Industrial KT2 gloves as a thin liner, and they're cheap enough to be disposable.

That would also keep your legs warm when needed!

Thanks (to you and everyone else) - this is all very useful information. My only concern about a boiler suit is that I haven't had much luck with 1-piece outfits. Compared to the average person my height, my legs are quite long and my torso is quite short. So, whenever I wear my cycling bib tights, I have to keep yanking them up because the torso is too long. I also bought a wetsuit recently, and the ankles are around my calves while the crotch is a bit lower than it should be (i.e. torso too long and legs too short). The only thing that fits properly is my onesie, because that's not supposed to be form fitting (the "crotch" is somewhere around knee level).
