Rated 5 out of 5 by Ajax These bibs are perfect for riding in cold weather.
I live in NJ and bike year round except for snow and ice conditions. They are wind proof and lightly insulated- I have never been cold in these, despite sub 30 degrees and wind. Fit runs small, would consider going up one size.

I had bought my first road bike In November of 2014 and decided to do more ride in the Virginia winter period so I had bought a pair of long cycling tight that was recommended for cold weather ride. After a two hours ride at 34 degree F, my legs were cold and numb so needless to say I returned pant. At the time I owned a Gore Phantom 2.0 jacket and was very happy with it so I wanted to have a bibtights that would allow me riding in lower temperature.
Through Gore's website I had discovered their Xenon product lines and bought the Xenon 2.0 bibtights and rides after rides in the winter months this is the best pant that keep me warm and comfortable on even long rides throughout the cold season. My average weekend ride has been around 40 miles with temperature lower than 30 degree F and it kept me warm and comfortable through every one of my rides. I have tested the bibtights on colder days around 17 degree F for 30 minutes and did not have problem of legs getting cold(I will try for longer ride in colder temperature when I can).
This is the only cold weather bibtights I've owned and for being two years old this bibtights still looks spanking new!(by following Gore's recommended care instructions). There were two instances where I had fell on asphalt to the side at low speed and thought that I may have scratched my knee, thigh and puncture the bibtights but after the flickering of the dust and gravels, myself and everything on the pant was intact. The materials made up this pant and the jacket(below) is truly amazing and quite durable.
Thus far, this pant is not a low cost item but it is the best investment I have put toward cycling gear and I say this with total confidence in this product from Gore's. I am sooooo happy to own this product and yes I definitely would recommend this to anyone that is looking for a cold weather pant that would keep them warm and provide a long comfortable ride in the 20s or below.
My hat off to Gore's engineering and quality control team and many thanks to their wonderful and innovative products.
Btw, for most of my colder rides I use this gear along with my Xenon 2.0 Windstopper Soft Shell Jacket and a pair of Xenon Windstopper Soft Shell Thermo Gloves. However the only part of my body that are cold and numb after a 40 minutes ride at below 34 degree F are my feet while using Gore's windstopper Toe protector and Road Windstopper Soft Shell overshoes. I would love to hear suggestions to keep this part of the body warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fabian Proper winter tights
These tights will keep you warm - with proper insulation in the right areas, wind stopper material and nice high fit to cover your back, but without feeling bulky.
Chamois is not too thick to feel like a diaper, but provides the comfort you need.
Def recommended for any rides sub 40F/5C
