Joe, are you trying to be funny? It's in 30ths right now. I put a fleece helmet cover and warm boots on when it's below 50F. I have gloves on ALWAYS. I wish I would NOT have to do it, but in MD it gets cold in Dec-Feb. I bet in VA too...

Good for you! It was mid 30 + strong wind this morning when I rode. All those fleece cloth definitely saves my butt!

They are lined in soft fleece, and really do the job of keeping me warm. I also find I can move really well in them. I wish they came in full seat!
I agree that these are very worm, don't get the bootcut breeches, they are like plastic. Looking at the reviews really help as well :)

I advise black breeches, but I don't know any specific brands.

If I get to ride in the winter (Blast this constant falling rain/slush/snow/ice!!! ARGH!! ), I like black breeches with leggings underneath. Like the kind of leggings that people who shouldn't like to wear as stand-alone pants. They tend to be a bit less itchy than UnderArmor, I find, but they still lay flat under breeches and add an extra insulating layer. I honestly just use the same breeches that I use in the summer with the extra layer - I'm too cheap and don't get enough saddle time in the winter to spring for legit winter riding gear. My everyday breeches are Devon-Aires. I've got a no-name set that are a bit heavier - I don't like to wear those in August. I think the name on the tag is Perri's.

Second the Kerrits fleece breeches. Sooooo warm and comfy!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Scout, my summer breeches are all by Devon-Aire. I really like the brand. (well I have one Kerrits too).

MBP, I ended up with 1 by Irideon and 1 by Dublin (the latter because it was 50% off ).
