    I love these pants. I did ditch the inner liner in favor of my bib shorts and a wind brief, but I've ridden down in 30 degree temps along the Front Range in these pants. My legs did not get cold on my rides, just my fingers (still searching for the perfect glove). Cut plenty long that they do not ride up, nor fall down in the back, they're the best. I wish I had bought another pair when these pair eventually die.

    Why do they make winter tights with a front side that is different from the back side? Who is going to need ventilation in their legs? Front side wind and water resistant, back side, blow through fleece with a smooth outer surface, ridiculous!

    I bought 3 pr of these. One for each of my sons and myself. Great price since off season, I have owned several of this brand and have never been disappointed

    I took these out on a short but windy day along the front range. Temps were in the low 40s with average winds in the 16 mph and gusting to 30 mph. Wearing just the padded liner, my legs were never cold. Peddling into the headwind I was quite comfortable. And the tailwind home did not penetrate the breathable backside of the legs.

    Now I can't say you'll be warm in just these doing the Iditarod trail or out on a Fatbike excursion in the snow, but in mild temps in the winter- these pants are killer!

    My first cycling pants. I took them for a ride up the Old La Honda Rd. and back, during cold weather. Felt great. Perhaps, additional pockets would be nice to have.

    Very impressed with the way these pants work. On the chilly morning the pants were warm enough to tell that they will work quite well as the temperature drops.
