Bike Tights with Windproof Front-recommendations

I had a set of tights (Performance, I think) with a thicker, windproof material in the front, crotch and front of the legs...and they finally expired when the materials in the front separated and turned into an unmanageable wad of stretch fabric. I'm not complaining as I had them more than twenty years...my question--does anyone have a recommendation or a favorite among what is now available for a similar garment? I see several on the internet at all price ranges, but wonder at their fit (I'm borderline Clyde) and durability. What are your favorites and how do they fit? My other option is to just get a set of nylon windpants and wear the tights I already have underneath. Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

my go-to pants when things get chilly are Novara Headwind pants but they don't make them anymore. they're snug but they're not tights. I misplaced them one year & bought another pair found on ebay. then I found the original pair so now I have 2 pair. anyway they're great cuz like you said, they have front facing wind protection

Thanks, I do see Novaro Headwinds on Ebay...and the REI site (where they were once sold) offers some alternatives that look good. I will have to poll my kids and grandkids to see if any have a membership. Cheers!

I have a few pair from TMCO that were reasonably priced on Amazon. Note they fit small by American standards.
