What are the best winter-running pants?

What are the best running pants to wear in the dead of winter when the wind is blowing and the snow is flying?

Pearl Izumi’s Fly Softshell Pant is my choice when temps begin dropping into the single digits or lower. Made from the same polyester softshell that Pearl Izumi uses in its jackets, the Fly Softshells are incredibly warm and wind resistant. And if you overheat, you can open up thigh zips to let off some steam. One note: Pearl Izumi calls them pants, but they fit more like baggy tights.
