No matter how active you are during a winter workout, it's important to protect your legs and keep them warm. A warm muscle is less likely to be injured, and cold weather athletic clothing has come a long way from the bulky ski suits and baggy sweatpants of the past.
Some athletes prefer fitted microfiber tights with a fleecy lining, others prefer a loose-fitting thermal pant that still has moisture-wicking properties. For extreme outdoor sports conditions (cold, wind, rain), choose wind- and water-resistant pants made from Gore-Tex or a similar performance fabric.
