    I'm in WNY and do a lot of outside activity. Specs say the Mavis is battle tested at 32º, but I had it out last night for a while when it was 12-15 (for a few minutes to gut check the thing). Everything worked really well, but my iPhone battery is awful and lasts about 10 seconds in the cold...
