In zero degree weather you need to insulate with layers. This is an outer shell layer and should not be used as a baselayer or mid layer. It's job is to shed wind and moisture. So to directly answer your question, they will keep you warm as part of a layering system. If you wear these and skivees alone you will get cold instantly.

Best Climbing Pant EVER! Maybe More..
5 5

These pants scream climbing but tackle backcountry excursions and daily kick backs just as well. They run slightly large but I still would order to fit. Very versatile, durable (Climb quartzy granite cracks often and no tears), cool when needed but still ample protection from elements. They dry quick, I swim in them in the backcountry and they don't give you the wet pant drags. Couldn't be happier, I just ordered a second pair!!

They follow the same design pattern as construction hard hats. You never see foam lining in Hard Hats because it still transfers ALOT of energy into your body. With the suspension system, it actually deflects heavy objects to the sides. In one case I saw while working offshore, a 50+ Lbs. Shackle fell from some scaffolding directly on a man's head from about 70 ft. Instead of killing him it was deflected and broke his shoulder. Foam would surely not have had this outcome.
