temperature ratings of 3 tights

I'd just like to know what you guys would consider the temperature ratings of the following 3 pairs of tights.


MEC Venturi Tights


Louis Garneau 1

Louis Garneau 2

Cheers

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.

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