Odd fit, and I think there are better options out there

I've been riding in 30 and 40-degree weather in a pair of Peal Izumi Sugar cycling shorts with a pair of North Face Windstopper Isotherm tights over them and have been very comfortable with this system. But I love those North Face pants so much that I was worried about wearing them out biking, so I ordered these Pearl Izumi thermal tights in hopes of wearing these instead. I'm 5'8" and about 130 lbs and got a medium, which is what I wear in other Peal Izumi bike shorts, but these pants just fit strangely. They seem to be long enough, but I think my knee hits in a spot other than where the knee was designed to be and they don't feel right. They're also not anywhere near as warm (or comfortable) as my existing system, so back they go!
