I just got me these tights which are very warm, down to 10 F, if you put a capilene underlayer.

Hint: pick the one with the SMOOTH OUT feature, it's warmer and suitable for cycling. Call Franziska if you want the Navy color, which for some reason is not shown/liested in the internet order feature.

compare with Coldlizard's one which it's more expensive:

Today I truly tested these tights in 28 F very windy, I wore it with just a padded brief and long wool socks upto my knees, it kept my leg nice and toasty, didn't feel the whipping cold wind, my problem was rather the face, but that's another story.

Are you saying that this tights really works @ 10F?? What about wind protection??
What was your base layer? You said Capilene. Can you be more specific ??

Thanks for sharing the deal

Are they padded?

Are they reversible? I see they have smooth side out and fleece side out. Could I get smooth side out, then change it over to have the fleece side out?
