Pearl Izumi's AmFIB Tights offer maximum warmth and comfort for extreme winter conditions. They feature Pearl's stretchy, windproof, water-resistant Elite Softshell fabric on the front as armor against Mother Nature's worst efforts. Inside, Pearl's Elite Thermal Fleece fabric traps heat next to your skin and also transfers moisture superbly. These tights feature Pearl's awesome cycling fit with 7-inch ankle zippers and reflective highlights for nighttime visibility.
It was 22 degrees with little to no sun, snow on the ground and windy with these pants on I was warm! They breath but wind does not make it thru, they wick the moisture away and dried FAST! I had a pair of rain pants on and after two miles took them off, the tights were a little damp from sweat, but dried within minutes!
They don't have any padding, but that doesn't bother me or you can add a pair underneath.
I have ridden many winters and these are the first pair I can use alone and be perfectly comfortable for over an hour!
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
