For the Cyclist

Hop on your bike whether you are cycling indoors or out; this pair of cycling tights was designed to impress. The thermo tights will help keep you warm if you are out biking in the cool, crisp air thanks to extra layered material. The added layers are still comfortable, though, since these cycling tights are ventilated to wick away moisture from the areas you sweat most. Reflective details will keep you visible when the sun starts to set and the warm yet breathable fabric will protect you from the elements on your next ride. ($130; backcountry.com)
