    wind resistant leg warmer with insulation?

    I have leg warmers with wind resistant but no insulation.
    And insulated legwarmers with no wind resistance. Is there anything with both? (light warmth)

    sure, several brands... look for descriptions such as "polyfleece liner"

    I have a pair of full tights with wind resistant fronts from Bellweather. No chamois so you need a pair of regular shorts underneath.
    "When it shall be said in any country in the world, my poor are happy; neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive; the rational world is my friend, because I am the friend of its happiness: when these things can be said, then may that country boast its constitution and its government." -Thomas Paine

    I call mine "tights".
    You'd be better off with a netbook, they do everything better.

    I just bought a pair of Bellweather "Windfront" tights. Wind resistant in the front, breath in the back..warm on rides below 50 degrees. I am liking them. Recently got them at Oustside Outfitters for 58.00 bucks. Real pleased with them if u can stand the slow shipping. They sell out quick but keep an eye out on their website.

    In all of the wind-resistant tights I'm familiar with, the fronts have three layers; Lycra outer, membrane middle, and fuzzy inner. Overall this is pretty thin but I find it sufficient for me down to 30 F or so. I generally don't ride below that.

    Have a new pair of Sugoi's leg warmers and have used them in weather so far as low as 43 and they were great! Had bought a pair of Castelli Nano Leg Warmers and used them one time in about 45-46 weather. Did not work for me at all. Sold them.
    Carbon,Steel,Aluminum or Ti,who really cares as long as we ride.

    You might give these a try. Louis Garneau Wind Leg Warmer from Realcyclist.com

    I just got a pair of Gore Oxygen SO knee warmers, and they are what you first described-windproof with little or no insulation, so I suspect that model of leg warmer would be the same.

    I love my Craft tights well down into the single digits. Wind chill? What wind chill?

    Ditto on the P.I. thermal leg warmers. They run about a size large, so be aware...
