    Sorry, don't know anything about tights. I thought this was talking about the same thing as a three dog night...

    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.
    when walking, just walk. when sitting, just sit. when riding, just ride. above all, don't wobble.

    This has got to be one of the latest reply threads ever, my original message was in early August! Thanks for the advice though.
