Clyde-friendly winter riding pants
It's getting cold here and I need to keep riding to fend off the winter fat.
Please share your experiences with clyde-worthy winter bottoms/pants.
I am 6' and 270 lbs. Because of my work situation and how I want to use my bikes during the winter, I am particularly interested in alternatives to tights, but want to hear what everyone uses. I am shopping for clothes that I will, by necessity, be wearing all day, not just commuting and changing into work clothes. I do carry an extra shirt or two, this takes care of the majority of my sweat and stink.
I also find that I am more interested in good moisture management than padding. Maybe I am using the wrong brands, but all of the shorts with chamis/padding seem to hold moisture and be uncomfortable when worn all day.
So, what's everybody wear in the cold.
