All

It's getting cold. I had to put the car heater on this morning during my commute to work.

What are your suggestions for full length cycling trousers, something warm and waterproof preferably.

I'll want to wear a pair of baggy shorts over the top so they need to be fairly thin.

Thanks in advance.

I saw these on e-bay. I think they would be OK under baggy shorts :lol:

I got some from Tenn outdoors last year and they've stood up to Arran and Yorkshire , not waterproof but they are quit warm, looking to invest in some overshoes/bootees this year as feet got cold last year.
