Winter Cycling - temperature ratings of 3 tights
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
I'd just like to know what you guys would consider the temperature ratings of the following 3 pairs of tights.
MEC Venturi Tights (http://www.mec.ca/Products/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=12699&bmUID=1028637733492)
Louis Garneau 1 (http://www.mec.ca/Products/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=195823&bmUID=1028637733495)
Louis Garneau 2 (http://www.mec.ca/Products/product_detail.jsp?PRODUCT%3C%3Eprd_id=12911&bmUID=1028637733496)

Hi I would have to say based on the weight of the tights.Temp ratings are hard to figure everyone is diffrent.I use 200 weight e.m.s. tights to -0 F.Just a guess I would say the Lousi Garneau at 330 grams is the wamest,next the MEC tights and last the Lousi Garneau at 215 grams.

I'll wear my normal-weight lycra tights [about the same weight as bike shorts down to 5C). I'll wear polypropylene tights down to about -5C [maybe lower if there's no wind]. When it gets really cold, I wear two pairs of tights -- a sligtly oversized lycra over polypropylene. I don't normally ride below -10C.
This has got to be one of the latest reply threads ever, my original message was in early August! Thanks for the advice though.
