Surprisingly warm for any single layer of cycling kit

First, I'd like to acknowledge the extremely subjective nature of rating winter clothing for warmth. I'm an ice climber and a skier that regularly recreates in temperatures below 0 F, so keep that in mind.

I've found all of the Utraz line to be incredibly warm given it's relative light weight and extreme low bulk. Most of my winter cycling takes place after work (i.e. in the dark) and I will happily wear my Utraz tights, jacket, and base layer for 2 hours +/- with no concerns. In fact, at much above 30 F, the Ultraz clothing can get to be a bit too warm, particularly if the sun is shining.

Ultimately, it's my hands and feet that turn me towards home during cold weather rides.

No high end cycling (or climbing or skiing or running etc etc) gear can be called "a steal", but given what we ask our winter gear to do for us, I gave the Utraz tights 5 stars and have been very pleased with their performance in weather that is really more suited for books and tea than cycling.

Very Good Stuff.

I use this product for my usual jaunts which may last for 1-3 hours. With a good pair of liner shorts, this creme is a great addition for maximizing comfort on the saddle. It's a bit pricey, but I think it's worth it for the comfort and protection it provides. I highly recommend it. I have purchased this product several times.

Great for very cold, dry weather

This is a new and confusingly named product; Habu is the name reserved for Assos' early Winter line up but this tight is for deep winter, as evidenced by the double layer of their heaviest RX over the knees. This is very similar to the design of the old LL.MIlle tights, which were a very warm and comfortable set of tights which lacked wind proofing and and had a fairly simple pad. I cut the pad out of those and wore a wind proof bib underneath as my main winter tights. These new tights make that unnecessary, providing that critical wind proofing front panel and a very good pad; they are the LL.Mille tights perfected! They still lack protection against the wet, so they're for cold, dry weather. They also lack the sweaty geoprene leg openings, which makes them more comfortable and quite a bit cheaper than the Equipe RS.

You need these!

Finally a brand that fits me perfect! These bib tights are the best by far. I am a sissy when it come to the cold, dont like. These Kept me warm all the time even when riding in the shade. I know these are spendy but you get what you pay for! The hip impact zone with a pad was intresting but did not even know they were there when riding. If you can budget for these you need to do it! After riding with these i will not be using my other tights.
