wayerproof winter weight tights for a clydesdale?

Hi
my old winter tights, nashbar windriders, are wearing out.
I tried last fall getting a new pair, but didn't like them for some reason.
Really could use some help on this one, I don't know of anyone that makes
2x tights that you can use in a cold rain.

I can't be the only big guy that rides in the cold.

Check the performance winter tights "Triflex" may be the name, the front is waterproof the back is not.

I use some nashbar tights but I don't think they are waterproof... I like em though as I'm Irish and have legs so white that they glow... LOL

I've used the Col d' Lizard tights (http://www.coldlizard.com/cgi/wc.dll...alog~DETAIL~34) in cold rains, snowstorms, etc. without discomfort. They only go up to XL, but they're extremely stretchy. There's a review at http://www.icebike.com/Clothing/Ctestedonice.htm if you want to check it out.

Huh,
I have some Cold Lizard stuff, I think I have their tights. But it's fleece, I never tried it in the rain. I'll give it a shot. I love their Core Warmer, but IMHO you need to order up a size or two.
