    Best winter riding pant

    Hello,
    I'm looking for something wind resistant, vented that can go over my
    shorts that I normally wear.
    What's a good winter/cold weather
    riding pant?

    For cold days it's a pair of Sugoi Firewall tights under my shorts.

    For really cold days (the south side of -10) I have a pair of (now discontinued) Roach Indy pants which go over the tights.

    The Racew Face Aquanaut look's similar to my old Raoch pant.

    Thermal bib knickers under my non-padded shorts do the trick for me.

    Endura on top, shorts and leg warmers underneath, and military grade goretex on the very outside.

    Or your mom's

    I love my Endura Singletrack Pants, but I got the 3/4 pants. I would recommend the full length ones. They're good for wind resistance but aren't very warm. I usually wear my winter tights underneath.

    For half the price check out Under Armour Illusion pants. http://www.underarmour.com/shop/us/e...nt/1204288-001

    When its really cold I wear smartwool liners underneath or your favorite thermal.

    I just need an overpant...No knicker, tights...Like a fully vented, light snow pant.
    I tried on a pair of Liquid vented ski pants and they were pretty nice.

    I'm gonna take an old pair of Sessions snowboard pants from storage. They're a) gore tex b) baggy c) not used anyways.

    I roll with generic long underwear under knickers most of the year. Otherwise it's generic long underwear with thick weave pants. I'm Sconnie so I know my ****. This is my fourth winter. Legs are probably the least important part.

    SportHill XC Pants are my favorite and have lasted several seasons.

    I've used these for cycling down to about 20F with shorts underneath. Worked good. Going out in a bit. About 12F right now.

    Had cheapie long johns under these for an elk hunt. About 20F with 50 - 70 mph winds out of the timber. Was warm. Felt they may be prone to tearing so didn't use them for hunting any more. They will be perfect for cool weather hiking, super light weight.

    Not a skin tight fit, but fit me great. Large 5'10" 180lbs

    No more peg legged tights

    HEY!!!!!
    I've listed the parameters of what I'm looking for.
    No more tights, spandex, knickers, bibs, peg legged stretch pants...etc.
    I'm not a bike finatic, geek, nerd..etc.


    I need an OVERPANT!!!!!!!! OVER my shorts.......over.
    Like a ski pant. Vented and easy to take off over my boots when I get to work.
    I'm not spending 20 minutes every day changing and getting bundled up.


    Did I mention it has to be an OVERPANT?

    I didn't have time to post details. These are definitely not skin tight. They are zippered at the bottom and fit in my Lake cycling boots. They fit fine over a cycling tight for me (Large Long 6'3" just shy of 200 lbs). I wear them with a heavy wool sock to 20 degrees. If colder, I reach for the capilene. If close to zero, I will wear a Pearl Izumi AmFIB Big Tight under these and two pair of wool socks.

    To the OP, I don't know if you will find anything barring a ski/snowboard pant that works any better. Then, you will have trouble keeping that pant out of your chain/cranks.

    Some tights under your shorts should work great.

    I went for a ride in the Sport Hill XC pant today. Had riding shorts and cheapie long johns under the pants. Legs were fine. Out for an hour in 12F. My toes where killing me when they started thawing out.
    For my short commute on the cold days- I have some cheapie Walmart wind pants. Slides over my shoes, keeps the wind out, cheap. Use velcro straps to keep them out of the chain/ring.
