I don't know how far you have to travel, but when I had a six mile round trip commute in Boston I just wore my regular pants with windpants over them in extreme cold/rain. I wouldn't want to ride like that for too long, but three miles each way was fine.cheetos316 said:I'm commuting to work now in the winter and looking for some good commuting pants... I'm looking for something that is waterproof (not resistant), made of a tough material (I have the PI Arroyo Pant that is good for waterproof but is made of trashbag like material), and is insulated for the Northeast winters. A pocket or two would be nice but not a requirement. I have thought about ski pants, but they are so thick that it is impossible to pedal with them on. Any good suggestions? What are you guys wearing while commuting?
