I am a big fella, at 6 foot, 250 lbs, and these are great pants. I purchased the 4 XL, per the instructions of the post, and they fit perfectly. They are warm (can't really wear them above 45 F, but they work in Minnesota winters) and comfortable. If they are still available after this pair wears out, I will be purchasing them again. The only thing I am left wanting for, and this is nitpicking, is something to hang them by. There is not a tag or coat rack loop, and they slide off of the rack when hung by the waste-band.
ProsQuality constructions (I think they will last for a long time); comfortable, warm; reasonably priced, given the construction; has a good draw string (not cheap elastic); totally waterproof
ConsNothing to hang them by on a coat rack; Could fit tighter around the ankle (not a big deal - they are fairly well fitted)
Best UsesWinter commuting (main purpose, for me); leisure riding; touring.

Great material need additional layers
I was really excited to get these pants since they were rated for - 5° to - 30° but I wore them in 17° weather and I froze. I was doing a light ride so nothing where I was going above zone two and I had my bibs underneath that are good until about 30°. I think it may need a light layer if a wind blocker on the outside and they would be good. My glutes were the coldest I loved the pants design though and was sad it didn't work. My husband is now using them for cyclocross in warmer temperatures.
ProsGreat design, good fit
ConsNot suitable for extremely cold weather
Best UsesAround 30°

Very Warm - use for temps lower then 35f
It does run a size small, so order one larger then normal, but it's well constructed, and will last a long time.
Best Usescold weather riding, it's to hot for these above 40 degrees.

Amazing pants, and made in the USA by a company with a bunch of great people.
I bought a pair of these pants 5 or 6 years ago. I have worn them every winter since purchasing them. I only recently broke one of the zippers. I called the company and they said send them and they will replace the zipper FREE OF CHARGE. I live in Michigan and have worn them down to below zero and they keep me plenty warm.
ProsVery comfortable and warm. Really are windproof.

I primarily purchased these for winter commuting (upper teens to mid 30s). They work wonderfully. Completely protect from wind and are nicely warm, at least at mid-20s. Zippered ankle fits perfectly over winter riding boots. Rode home when it was mid 40s. Still comfortable, but would probably be too heavy for much higher temperatures or for hard riding. Seem very well constructed. It is mentioned elsewhere the sizing is on the small size, which I agree with. I am 5' 10", 150lbs and the large fit very well. Highly recommended.

Great For Cold Weather Comfort
I would give these 5 stars because they are are excellent, but they have one thing that holds them back. I have worn them in the teens without any issues. They fit great over whatever tights, bib shorts or knickers I choose to wear. They provide adequate wind protection. I have not had the chance to see how they do in the rain yet, but I was nice and toasty in the snow. The one thing that knocks them down to 4 stars is they make me slide on my saddle. I ride a Brooks Professional leather saddle. Even with the nose tilted slightly up I found myself sliding forward with these on. In order to prevent this I have to ride with the saddle cover on. All these need to be 5 stars is some sort of non-slip material in the seat. Make sure you pay attention to the size chart. I went big on these and I'm glad I did. I wear the 2XL Bib Shorts so I went with the 5XL size of these. They fit perfect, not too big or long and not too small or tight.
ProsComfortable, windproof and warm
ConsSlides on saddle bad enough to knock a star off.
Best UsesWinter weather: Cold, snow and possibly rain.

Great fit, toasty ride
When I first ordered I focused on the inseam, forgot about pedal and crank conflicts. So I ordered the next smaller size (XL for a 34 inch waist) and they fit and performed great. Rode on a 42 degree overcast day and remained comfortable the entire 3 hour ride. Did not overheat during hillclimbing. Great product, plenty of thought was put into knee construction of the garment. Recommend you give these a try.

Keeps me riding in the 30's
Great product for cold weather bike riding. I use these tights when the temp is below 40 and they keep me comfortable, not to cold or to warm. Not truly tights unless you buy them small, I like a looser fit. I may expand my lower temperature of bike riding from the current wind chill of 30 degrees down to 25 degrees now that I have these tights.

The Best Cold Weather Biking Pants I have ever Worn!
These pants are tight where they need to be tight and loose where they need to be loose. We had a cold windy November day and these pants and rode a hilly trail with no warmth issues at all. I liked them so much my wife bought a pair for herself. She is now a fan as well.

great cold weather pants
they are warm (even for Wisconsin cold weather!), comfortable, and stretchy. The only (small) complaint is that the waist seems a little low for a 6'3" guy.

second purchase from aero tech. haven't tried them for the cold yet, (still summer) but tried them on and they are plush. have had no success with sizing of other winter tights/bibs. these are right on. not likely to use them on road rides as they are just a bit loose in places, but will work very well for the mountain bike.

Great performance worth every penny!
Love these pants. Rode the "Old man winter" ride in Lyons, CO in these...was very happy to have them. 33 degrees windy muddy sloppy day...it was a great time as these kept me warm and dry!
ProsSee comments. I am 6' 165lbs. I was hesitant to order the XL SIZE as indicated online but they fit well. Pay attention to the sizing notes and you will be fine.

Thought I wouldn't be able to keep cycling during the winter due to the temperature. One ride with these pants and I knew my winter riding blues were gone!

Order came quickly. Very comfortable when riding. 1st ride I wore padded shorts and tights underneath and was too warm (30 degrees). 2nd time, rode in 20 -30 degree weather with just a pair of padded shorts underneath and stayed warm throughout a 17(+) mile ride. Blocks wind well. I'm 6'1, 195lb and bought an XL. Fits very well.

Great product--use the size chart!
Great for 30-50F. I've ridden with and without base layer. There's no problem with wind. I have a long trunk and short legs. Bib tights don't fit so I use tall bib shorts and were these over the padded shorts. I'm a 38-38 waist and ordered 3xl which fit just fine. Use the size chart.
ProsZippers on bottom. Knees are very comfortable.
Conslegs are too long for a 28" inseam but I just pull them up over my thighs.
Best Uses1-2 hour on or off road rides in very cool temps

Excellent winter pants! Runs very small to size though...
These pants are excellent, but run very SMALL to size... For example, I wear typically 3X to 4X in bike shorts and 3X in normal street shorts, but I had to order the 6X size in these pants, and even then they are tight in the waist and thigh area. I have to wear these alone, as I cannot get my bike shorts underneath these pants and get them pulled up. Seriously, no exaggeration, these run small... As for the quality, they are EXCELLENT! The material is warm (on some mild winter days even too warm and cause sweating) and very durable. It has stretch panels in the right places and windblocker material everywhere else. But these pants DO NOT have any padding, so plan accordingly with some thin bike shorts underneath. Everything on these pants is done with quality and it shows...
ProsWarm! Quality materials. Very comfy.
ConsRuns very small to size

These are wonderful pants (tights). They're extremely well made, warm, and nice-looking. They're slightly loose-fitting, as I wanted, but they're not floppy about the ankles so they stay clear of the chainwheel. I'm a 34 W, 5' 10", 154 lbs, and I usually buy a large size or even a medium, but the XL size fits perfectly, as their sizing chart said it would. Customer service is excellent, and a live (knowledgeable) person always answers the phone. However, all this is almost beside the point, because if you want biking pants that actually provide warmth on cold days, not just a rain shell to go over work clothes, there's nothing else out there (except possibly one other model from the same company). Like another reviewer, I had looked high and low for just this kind of thing, and found nothing in the same league. I only wish there were a zippered back pocket, but this is not nearly enough to derail a five-star rating.

Like no other
I've been looking for over a year for pants like this. Have only worn them once as I bought them in early spring. I commute year-round about 30 minutes 1-way. Only reason not to commute is snow or ice. These are warmer than the ones I am replacing that were good down to ~10 degrees. I ordered the next size up, but they were too large. Sent them back for my normal size which fits like expected. Exellent communication and customer service. Considering a 2nd pair while on sale.

I just purchased my second pair
I have worn these tights for hiking biking and standing outside in the cold/wet for extended periods of time. They are great for long distance biking with chamois underneath. Good investment for cold weather activities.

Excellent quality and well designed
I did a lot of research and was quite impressed with this Aerotech product. I ride on roads and trails in a variety of climates and these pants cut the wind and keep me very warm and comfortable. When I purchased them I knew that they did not have any pockets though it would be nice when I wear them at other times. That being said I primarily wear them for biking and I can't use pockets while

Just what I needed.
I commute to work in all kinds of weather and these pants are excellent for the chilly mornings rain and snow conditions. Very comfortable.

Excellent Cold Weather Pant
Great pant for cold weather biking here in the colder than usual Northeast. When the roads are too icy to ride I've been doing a lot of cross country skiing & they work great for that too. Lack of pockets is annoying but bike jacket or skiing jacket will suffice (or a fanny pack). Great product - would buy again.

These are PERFECTLY true to size!
These are actually very very nice winter fleece (tight) pants. The quality is exceptional. Good for most any outdoor winter activity. Very comfortable too. Good value. Highly recommend.
