Cover your legs when it’s nasty out.
Roll out on cool damp days with the Louis Garneau Solano Tight; its ability to conserve body heat, block wind, and repel water makes sure this tight defends against nasty weather. HeatMaxx fabric pulls moisture from your skin and retains warmth thanks to a brushed back, while the Light WindDry outer has a three-ply knit to cut through wind. Tech fabrics aren’t the only benefit to these tights they also use ergonomic fit, flatlock seams, elastic ankle grips and a waist with a drawstring make sure you’re comfy and covered.

gave as a gift but they're warm but not crazy warm. Good for cool and colder days but not insane temps
Great fit. Good in cool weather

So far they are perfect. The fit is true. I tend to be on the larger end of the small range, but bought a medium to accomodate my bike shorts with extra padding. They are just slightly loose. These don't pinch my ankles the way other tights I've owned do, even if I wear thicker socks. Nor do they ride up at the ankes. Since one of the other reviewers mentioned them being too loose in the ankle, I'd say these are good for those who have thicker ankles or whose ankles swell during activity.
I tend to get cold before others do. I've worn these in temps down to mid 50's and was comfortable. I haven't had a chance to try them in very cold weather yet.
Great tights for wide variety of temps
These tights are fabulous. As someone prone to overheating, even in the coldest weather, I was worried they'd be too hot for me. However, even riding in 40+ weather, sweating up a storm, my lower half never felt too hot. After I took them off, I noticed that my legs were sweaty, but I never felt sweaty or hot while wearing them, even after I got home and was walking around the house before changing.
The only quibble is that the ankle grippers don't grip my ankles- they're very loose. But i never notice this when I ride- they are long enough that they go over my socks. I also imagine i could take them off over my shoes, if I needed to, but I've never gotten hot enough to have to do that.
As a bigger cyclist, the size is good and the waistband doesn't dig in at all.
I wear them over my bike shorts and they slide on well over the shorts.
These are great tights for a wide range of temps!
