If you've ever experience the unpleasantness of a soaked chamois while cycling in temperatures below 45 degrees Fahrenheit, then you'll appreciate the Gore Bike Wear Power 3.0 Plus Men's Tights. They incorporate a layer of windproof, water-resistant material stretching from the front of the crotch to the center back in order to help keep the Power Men insert dry.
It's hardly a surprise that, of all manufacturers, Gore would be the one to include this protection over the chamois, but we are surprised more brands aren't following suit. After all, it doesn't take too much insulation to trap all the heat your legs put off while cycling, so the brushed fleece Gore uses is more than equal to the task; however, even the smallest bit of road spray can turn an erstwhile warm chamois into a soggy, stinging mess.

I've used these on many rides now and they're just what I wanted. They're very warm and comfortable. I ride fifty miles round trip between Bozeman and Livingston regularly, and these keep me warm on days when the temps are 39°F to 55°F. There's usually lots of wind in the Livingston area, so the wind-chill factor can be significant. When the sun comes out over 60°F these get really warm. I'm very pleased with this product. They appear to be very well constructed and are holding up well after two Springs and one Autumn of riding.
