Novara Headwind Bike Pants - Women'sis rated4.75out of5by4.
Rated4out of5byfromWinter commuting essentialI bought these pants to replace ones that wore out after three winters of 4-5 days/week commuting (15 miles daily). They are fine worn with padded shorts in fall and spring. In colder weather or hard rain, I wear warmer long tights underneath, and add baggy rain pants that are more wind and water-resistant outside.

Rated5out of5byfromlove themnot too tight not too loose just perfect. The rear pocket will let me carry my phone and DL when I run too. Not waterproof but for how I ride they are great. My husband has several pair and he really likes them a lot. He says they look a lot better on me than they do on him.

Rated5out of5byfromGreat wind protectionGot these before a late fall ride, turned out to be in the 30's with 10 mph winds gusting to 16 mph (probably more on the far side of the lake) and I was comfortable the full 30 mi ride, ended with temps in the 40's. Strong winds riding eastbound. Tried them on with bike shorts, would stick to shorts underneath for comfort, capri cycle tights were too bulky at the knees. These pants have darts at the knee that allow for very comfortable movement if you don't wear bulky capri's beneath them. No chamois, which is fine as they are comfortable over cycling shorts. Zippers worked well going over shoes when I removed the pants for the post-ride soup supper. These fit snugly but not too tight, will allow more comfortable cold weather cycling this year.
