This is what we wear when it gets below about 48F. They're snuggish 100 percent wool longies, and although they look like tights, they aren't as snug as Pearl Izumi tights, for instance. They don't snap on, and you don't have to turn them inside out to take them off. They are perfect for all cool to cold weather non-racing riding.
You can wear them over your panties (the all wool ones are the best) with nothing on top, or wear MUSA shorts, knickers, or pants on over them; or nylon gym shorts, whatever.
They're about a 9oz interlock. They seem to last a long time, and do fantastic quadruple duty as pajama bottoms (every bike campout, this is what I sleep in), and running tights and hiking tights.
These are an integral component of any cold weather rig.
Get them one size larger than you think if you want 'em a little looser. They'll ride a little high waisted (as shown in the pix of Mr. Nivolo wearing size XL) but you'll be sure to be crack covered and the high waisted skinny style is such the rage right now.
