    I have a pair of synthetic Prana pants I could see doing this in. I think I've worn them playing with the kids in the snow, or maybe on a short snowy day bike ride, come to think of it.

    Are we talking about regular pants that are good on the bike or ski pants?

    I have the same. They are not cycling specific, but they are stretchy enough and cut to allow you to raise your knee to your chest (for rock climbing I would guess). I like them for coolish MTB rides, and also for riding my bike to work. In the winter I wear tights or long underwear as a base layer under them in sub freezing temperatures. They look more or less like casual pants.

    I have several pairs.

    You might laugh at the idea but denim jeans works well for winter and they protect very well in case of crash.

    These softshell pants work great for me. https://www.aerotechdesigns.com/ther...ng-tights.html Link says "tights", but they are pants.

    I plan on doing some cold weather MTB'ing soon - I'm thinking I'll just wear my Outlier SDs. They are very tough, stretch enough, slim enough. Now to see if I can actually fit into them ....
    Auk's words to live by:
    Blow up and pin a picture of M. Bartoli on your wall. When you achieve that position, stop. Until then, stretch, ride, stretch, ride, eat less, and ride more.

    I wear Prana pants and shorts commuting whenever there isn't snow on the ground. Mid-40s were just fine this morning in the Zion pants. And I'm guilty of rolling the pants up into man-pris for the in-between days, which works really well. Why is it so much more dignified to call them Plus 4s?

    Once it's real winter, I wear some pants from Swerve that are a softshell material with a fleecy inside. They're good down into the subzero stuff without anything underneath. Pretty sure they're these: https://swrve.us/collections/trouser...shell-trousers

    How do folks, or do folks, wear knee pads with these styles of pants? Over/under? not possible?

    Most DH/enduro pants have room for knee pads to be worn under and that is how I wear mine especially since knee areas generally have different fabrics that prevent snagging on the ground. I would think if one were to wear pads over pants that sizing up would be necessary.

    Depending on the amount and type of precipitation in your region, waterproof/breathable membrane in a rain pant might be good. You'll likely sweat and still experience some dampness, but it might be better than freezing rain soaking your legs/crotch. I have a pair with velcro on the cuffs that allow snugging the fabric down enough to not be caught in the chainring.

    first ride with these this am....i like em

    nice knee articulation and stretch...good pocket placement for phone/keys

    although i doubt i will be able to get kneepads under there cuz i have tree trunks for legs. i could size up i guess, but then waist would be too big

    Except that they have seams right where you seat, and most important: they get wet very easy and take ages to dry. Any 20 bucks softshell trousers from a sport store will do a lot better.

    Those a very durable, and can use them for no less than two seasons in the year: in winter you may add a liner or knickers/long johns underneath. Not great when it rains, but ok in a drizzle or damp.

    I have traditionally used knee warmers or a old pair of Swobo knickers, but picked up a pair of the POC pants. I really can’t believe how much I like them. Easy to get pads on underneath if needed with zippers up to the knee.

    Really comfortable.

    Used these for 2 winters now and they have held up well and the price is certainly right;
